So I recently discovered the sheer awesomeness that is NHL 09 (Xbox 360). Now I don't know exactly what it is that makes this game so enthralling, because, quite frankly, I must admit, I'm not the most knowledgable or involved hockey fan. It's true, I used to be into hockey cards and watching games when I was really young, but I sort of stopped following the sport after the loss of my beloved home team
. Yet everything about this game seems to draw me in.
Even the control system feels intuitive and tight; coupled with the engaging and solid gameplay
as well as the extensive game modes and stat menus, crazy physics systems, and the wicked presentation, this is definately a must-buy game in my books... Which I did... For $12 after game trade-ins...
I noticed that this game has pushed me so far as sneaking in some televised hockey viewings every now and then since I've started learning the names of players and familiarity
