NHL 2K11 News Post

Gamespot has posted their first look at NHL 2K11.

"As with 2K Sports' other big game--NBA 2K11--we didn't get a chance to play NHL 2K11 for ourselves. We did hear about the upgrades to the Wii MotionPlus controls (which producers are dubbing "Wii MotionPlus 2.0") and that it promises more one-to-one motion between player movement and onscreen stick control than ever before. Standard movements will be easy enough to pull off, but 2K is also promising the ability to pull off more advanced moves like poke checks, stick lifts, juggles, and even holding the puck on the end of the stick in midair. We saw the latter in motion during a one-versus-one practice session--it looked cool enough but we doubt there's much room for this kind of flair in a full six-on-six match.

From a presentation standpoint, NHL 2K11 will feature a more vibrant color palette with improved lighting in stadiums, touched-up player models, and improved jerseys and sticks. Speaking of lumber, broken sticks are in NHL 2K11. We didn't see any in our demo, but producers said players will skate to the bench to retrieve a new stick."

If they couldn't compete with EA anymore, abandoning the 360 and PS3 accomplished absolutely nothing as EA is now coming to Wii with NHL Slapshot.

I am/was a 2K fan and thought 2k10 was very solid except in the area of animations and goalies but EA slapshot from the trailers is going to kill 2K in the graphics department and 2K will lose that battle big time as well on the Wii.
