wow i am so pumped for this game,the demo is amazing,just the whole in game presentation is 10 times better it will take some pratice to get use to though switching from 08 to 09 .it is a little bit more hard to aim shots on breakaways and this game makes you play smart positional hockey it is so good.

I love that it's just as messy as real hockey games can be, they're making you work to get good scoring opportunities. Its top class stuff.

NHL 09 DEMO PROS

You have to work for the puck, work to score.
Poke checks, and covering the puck are much cooler and more interactive.
Goalie's move's are much cooler.
It takes a lot more skill to move the puck to the net.
BeAPro Mode is amazing, I could play all night long.

NHL 09 DEMO CONS

Graphics are kind of wierd, a little more like 07.
Shootouts are impossible, the CPU scores with an over-the-shoulder shot every time.


Thats what I think about it so far, haven't played a lot.
So far though, I think its looking pretty darn good. I am ubsessed with BeAPro.

i had the same thing in my shootouts i could barley hit the net while the cpu scored on almost every shot over the shoulder or a few amazing deks but only if i was the pens i found the wings very hard to beat ina shootout while even though i lost every shootout when i was the wings also the pens didn't score on every shot like the wings seemed to do.,if that makes sence.

but i can't stop playing be a pro i,i played like 6 straight be a pro games then played a play now game and the be a pro mode is so much more impressive.

if you go into the select a side settings on the pause menu, you can lock into position by pressing x (for some reason you can do it here but not in the main menu before the game!) i jus spent a fun period on d absolutley owning the front of my net! I love the new defensive engine on the game!

im off to have a go at goalie!!

I've found that timing a slap shot/wrist shot through the five-hole seems to work pretty well in shootouts. I used to do a triple deke or something of the sort in 08, but the timing seems a bit different this year.

i find whem i deke on a breakaway using the same deks that i used in 08 i usually completely miss the net from 2 feet in front it must be new aiming system which is good cause in 08 the puck just seemed to get sucked into the net area no matter where you shoot from

with stores putting them on the shelves anywhere between the 10th and 12th, depending how on the ball they are.
