I play on Xbox Live, what level/game speed do you use?? I don't like playing on anything above 6, and prefer to play on All-Star or higher as the 'cheese' moves are not as successful.

my GT is vatman. I rarely get ranked as I don't play nearly enuf games in a month, but I usually have a good record.

Ba ba ba ba ba -- I'm lovin' it.

That passing mechanism looks very promising... and the video had a Stooges cover song!

I would rather have them realistic than either extreme. I said I was merely concerned - no real way to tell without actually seeing some high level gameplay footage.

Sure, it may be easy. But didn't the goaltender dive out of the net at a puck going 3 feet wide? I don't think that has anything to do with level of difficulty but rather lack of proper goalie animations.

Thanks for the video. But one-timers just look too effective again in 2k5 as it was in 2k4.

Yes but that is the ideal -- realism. That is what I'd prefer too, but should they be either harder or easier than what is realistic, I'll take harder 10 times over.
