||Lyrics, Mild Violence
The first licensed hockey game for Wii offers you the chance to skate with your favorite pro stars using a combination of analog and motion-sensitive controls. Both wrist shots and slapshots are initiated by swinging your arm forward, while passing is simplified by aiming a cursor at the intended recipient with the Wii Remote. One-timers and chain passes can be set up in advance using this method of pointing and clicking, or a more traditional method can be used, depending on your preferences. Other motion-controlled actions include goaltending and fighting, with the latter using the Nunchuk to punch and the Wii Remote for balance. Game types include many of the same options found in earlier titles in the acclaimed NHL 2K series, from season and franchise play to practice sessions and pond hockey.
