The hopes of a franchise and its fans rest on your shoulders as you skate
onto the ice to a deafening roar from towel-waving fans in an arena alive with
the dreams of thousands. Here's your chance to prove you are tough enough to
battle the most skilled and determined athletes in the world in pursuit of the
ultimate prize - the Stanley Cup Championship. Prove your resolve, inspire your
teammates and write your own history with NHL10.
Intimidation Tactics: Fore-check defenders, pressure the puck and finish
checks to force your opponent into mistakes. Players fatigue, bobble passes,
and avoid collisions under threat of physical pressure. Face wash a
superstar to provoke the opposition, instigate a scrum and ignite the crowd.
Post-Whistle Action: Now, the game never stops! Antagonise opposing
players, finish checks, retaliate for late shots on goal, draw penalties and
pick fights - all after the referee blows the whistle!
New First-Person Fighting Engine: Change the momentum of a game by
trading blows with an NHL enforcer with all-new first-person fighting. Grab
and tug an opponent's jersey to land a big punch. Face wash an opponent to
start a fight even after the whistle.
New Precision Passing: A new 360° precision passing mechanic delivers
control over the speed and direction of passes so players can bank passes
off the boards or play the puck into space for teammates to skate on to it.
Players take poor passes off their skates and kick the puck to their sticks.
Spectacular Goals: Introducing spectacular new ways to score, like
players one-timing loose pucks, stick-handling and shooting from their
knees, batting pucks out of the air and lifting a leg to fake a shot on
Improved Goalie Intelligence: Goaltenders position themselves more
intelligently, react to shots more quickly and recover from saves faster.
Plus, 250 new goalie animations, including swatting pucks out of the air,
second and third saves and desperation lunges.
Next-Level Authenticity: Over 200 gameplay refinements, including new
offensive and defensive AI for more intelligent positioning, and new in-game
facial animations that show player emotion when delivering bone-crunching
checks or celebrating game-winning goals.
