Yea agreed. I can't stand the 2k gameplay. EA's kills it in every way. It's the reverse for off ice features.
We need to get 2k and EA drunk in a room together.
Wouldn't that be nice.lol
Another thing about 2K that is good is their attention to detail of the arenas of NHL teams. most arenas in the game look fairly generic in EA games until you look around and you can notice that they aren't all the same. 2K has every arena in almost perfect detail. If fire shoots out somewhere in the real arena, 2K has it shooting out in their game. Their presentation is amazing too. EA is getting better at the build up cut scenes before the game but I still think 2K's look better except for the players who look like rectangles and squares.
The only reason I bought 2K10 was for the classic teams. Was I ever disappointed when I got the game home and found out that they didn't have them in the game anymore. It made me hate 2K even more.
