I played both 2k10 and own NHL 10. I think NHL 10 is far supirior in every catagory.

The board play is definately a great addition and makes the game much better, and I thought it was a gaping hole in past years. Cycling, deflections and screens are the best way to score, and I only play on hardcore mode. Passing takes a lot of getting used to, but it's much more realisitic. It's easier to miss passes to the D in the offensive zone and they slide down the ice.

NHL 2k10 is alright I guess, if you like a much more arcade, rush-style game with slapshots like gunfire. The comparision is almost not fair, just due to the amount of resources EA throws into their development in comparision to 2K.

Did you tinker with the sliders? I'm telling you, 2K10 can be made to play in just about anyway you want. I agree that NHL10 is the better all around game out of the box, but 2K10 is more my cup of tea with good, sim-style sliders. EA's game tends to bore me after a while, but I think it is because I prefer single player over online.

Kinda funny, because I changed to 2K series to find realism as I got fed of EA's easy-to-get-in style of arcade play. But I guess we just find different things realistic. I still can't think any reason why anyone would call EA's skating realistic? You can glide around without your skates moving and your player reacting to turns is not how a real player would react.
