I've been reading all the NHL 2K vs. NHL 10 threads here...and I just have a basic question.
I'm an older dude, and I used to have a PS2 and played the EA NHL games. I liked them, and never played 2K but in the screenshots and all I basically thought it sucked compared to EA's version. I'm a big fan of the dynasty play.
I'm somewhat upset to find out that Wii only carries NHL 2K. I guess my main question though is this - is it worth it?
Does the Wii provide more functionality to NHL 2K than the old video game consoles did? If it's just still a joystick game and doesn't use the nunchucks I think I might pass.
Anyone using NHL 2K on the Wii - I'd really appreciate some input before I go blow 50 bucks. Thanks!
noooooo.... don't waste your money, graphics are horrible, faces don't look like the players, players stick hands change on replaces and stoppage of plays, way to hard to play, the game sucks. i would rather get nhl on the ps2
2K10 may be better. I've been hearing good things about the 360/PS3 version but I don't know if the same will go for the Wii version this year. Tiger Woods is supposed to be even better on the Wii, so that's definitely a good call if you're interested in that. Just try to keep an eye out for any new information about the Wii version of 2K10, it might be good.
Well for the 360 NHL 09 is 60 bucks while the 2K game is now down to 25. Supply and demand.
~$30 for the ONLY NHL game for the Wii? Absolutely a steal.
Sure it lacks online gameplay or updates, but a couple quick shuffles of Free Agents and you're in the ballpark for semi-accurate rosters. AND most of the big free agent names are in the game, so you can create-a-player and the game WILL announce who they are during play.
Yes the graphics aren't great (NHL 05 for the Gamecube (Gamecube games can be played in the Wii) looked better), but you get too wrapped up in trying to maul/hook/slash/shoot/find open teammates to pass too with the Wii-mote that you get over the fact that everyone is one of the same seven generic faces.
I expect 2k10 to be better (It's reported that 2k9 was a mid-cycle release, so they could get a full two year development cycle from 2k8 to 2k10)... so if you can wait, pick it up in September.
I've seen much, much worse games shoveled out in a hurry for the PS2, XBox, and Wii; NHL2k9 is better than those shovelware games.
