I’ve never been too much of a hockey fan myself. I’ve never seen any entertainment in ice skating around a ring full of men with testosterone problems eager to break that hockey stick over your head, or shoot the puck into your crotch. It’s a fun game to watch, no doubt – especially when people start tossing their gloves to the ground and, like a group of drunk Irish men in the pubs of Dublin after work, start punching each other in the face continuously whilst hugging each other (talk about love-hate-love). Could be the fact that I’m afraid of some douche skating over my arm and cutting the thing in half… but, whatever.
Although I’m not attracted by this sport itself, Electronic Arts’ NHL 10 has given me incentives to give the actual game a whirl. The game looks competitive, fun, and with new added features, a bit more appealing that any previous NHL titles released by EA – especially the new Goalie Mode. Hockey fans will, from what’s been shown, more than likely enjoy the new added features to NHL 10. Below, we have supplied you with a video of what you can expect to see in EA’s NHL 10.
