NHL Slapshot (Wii)

 

It comes with a big plastic hockey stick. OK, there are a lot of other observations you could make about NHL Slapshot right off the top. Most notably, the game brings Wayne Gretzky back to a hockey game for the first time in a few years. But nothing...

The most fun you can have wagging your stick. Much like any other gamer out there when NHL Slapshot arrived at the office for review I had to roll my...

Peewee to Pros mode ; Simple and fun controls ; Easy to pick up and play

No franchise mode ; Mini-game variety

It's only sometimes the case, but a peripheral really can enhance the gaming experience. In the case of EA's NHL Slapshot for the Wii, the enhancement is so amazing, EA will upsell you another one.

At first blush, EA's NHL Slapshot for Wii has all the earmarks of an arcade sports game for the kiddies. And while it is just that, by and large, it's also genuinely fun for "kiddies of all ages," mainly because it's the only hockey game out there to...

EA's first attempt at a Wii hockey game is extremely simple, but also extremely fun.

Skate fast, shoot hard, and carry a big stick.

Peewee to Pro is a riot; the hockey stick controller housing works as advertised; the fast-paced gameplay is ideal for casual fans and players

Playing with the stick controller can really hurt your back after awhile; the fast-paced gameplay is a nightmare for die-hard fans who want more sim in their game; the physics and hockey AI are pretty bad

EA is set to make its NHL debut on the Wii this week with NHL Slapshot. This game was built specifically for the Wii rather than being ported from the PS3 or Xbox 360. It even includes a special hockey stick controller that holds your Wiimote and...

NHL Slapshot is a nice attempt by EA to capture a larger hockey audience for the Wii. It combines a solid core game with a unique controller that works pretty well for itself. The result is a hockey experience that isn't bad if you're looking for...

NHL Slapshot- Wii

 

NHL Slapshot is a game that any sports loving fan who owns a Wii should try. The innovative hockey stick brings a level of control that I did not think was possible and it makes the game so much fun. The visuals, sound, and gameplay modes & features,...

Take your best shot at this unique Wii hockey game.

Included in the box with NHL Slapshot is a plastic hockey stick, although to really have some fun, you should invest in another for a friend. When you first boot up the game, a helpful instructional video shows you how to put the stick together and...

NHL Slapshot Review (Wii)

 

The Wii has struggled to strike a balance with core sports gamers. Whether it is the reliance on motion controls or the inferior graphical prowess of Nintendo's innovative console, the Wii simulation sports market has never quite caught on the way it...

Controls and stick peripheral. Pee Wees to Pros is a blast. Thorne and Clement are great

Presentation is bland. No online versus mode. No player differentiation = generic gameplay

Legendary hockey player Wayne Gretzky lends his name and likeness to EA's first pro hockey game on Wii. The game includes a scaled-down hockey stick peripheral that holds both the Wii Remote and Nunchuk in a vertical line. The optional peripheral is held
