A new first-person fighting engine enables players to trade punches
with an NHL tough guy. Feel what it’s like to be on the ice in the
skates of an NHL player to throw and dodge punches.
Winning one-on-one battles for possession of the puck along the
boards is now a test of will and skill. Utilizing an all-new board
physics engine, players can use their body to shield the puck on the
boards and then kick-pass it to teammates. Experience the emotion and
drama of NHL playoff hockey in Battle for the Cup. Play with injuries,
intimidate the opposing team, line-match to shut down superstars all in
front of frenzied towel waving crowds with storylines that carry across
the entire series. Plus, all-new interactive crowds bring the emotion
of playoff hockey to life with towel-waving fans, glass bangers and
crowds that react to the action on the ice. Players can one-time loose
pucks, score from their knees, knock pucks out of the air and lift a
leg to fake a shot on goal — just like real-world players.
Prove you are tough enough to quiet the crowd, silence the opposition and survive a playoff run to lift the Stanley Cup in NHL 10.
