NHL 09 is simply too big, too adventurous, too pretty, and too danged consuming to be considered anything other than the best hockey videogame ever produced." - 1up.com
NHL 09 Review
After gaining numerous awards on last years NHL 08, this year EA has done it again with NHL 09 out doing themselves and improving in every aspect. NHL 09 is the deepest hockey game ever to be produced with the addition of their new "Be a Pro Mode" where you can become a hockey player prospect, get drafted and work your way up though the minor league to the NHL.
Anyone else here getting it today or already has it? I am so excited to just pick it up and play it because I have to wait so long for the hockey season to start. I have always been a 2k hockey guy until this year. I played the demo of both 2k9 and NHL 09 and was blown away by NHL 09 by how the game felt, and it felt good!
So I'm mostly looking forward to the "Be a Pro Mode" and the online leagues where you can have 6 players vs 6 players online! It is just so deep this year to pass by.
I'm just waiting for my brother to come home so we can head to EB and buy it.
(so I can abuse his discount
So I'll ask again...who here already has it or is excited to get it today?
