NHL 09 Be A Pro Mode Rules!


I finally went out and picked up EA's NHL 09 for the Xbox 360. Basically the reason for the delay was the fact that I knew I'd be on vacation, and wouldn't get much time to play it with all of the things I had going on. Last night I decided to start with the Be A Pro mode. I'm so glad I did. This is the single most awesome mode I've ever played in any NHL video game, and I've played them all. You start out by creating a player and giving him whatever name you want. If most people are like me they created themselves. You get to decide everything from height and weight to what brand of stick, skates and helmet you want as well as the type of curve on your stick. I opted for my player to be a center who is a sniper. After you've decided what position your player will be playing it's off to pick the NHL team that you will be trying to play for one day. Obviously I picked the Dallas Stars. Then I was shipped off to the Stars' minor league AHL affiliate where I have a bunch of goals that the organization wants me to achieve such as shots on goal, goals scored, and points. It's definitely a challenge to only control one player vs controlling an entire team of players, but believe me it's an incredibly fun challenge.

Be A Pro mode is great for a number of reasons. Only controlling one player feels rewarding when you actually score a goal or assist on a goal. I also chose to play this mode the "authentic" way which means I contols my player and only my player. When it's time for a line change I actually skate to the bench and take a seat waiting for my health to go back up while play goes on without me. There isn't any time for day dreaming while play is going on either. When the coach calls for your line to get back out on the ice you had better be ready. After you take a shift and sit back down on the bench you'll get comments from the coach which can be both good and bad letting you know just what you're doing right and/or wrong. Be A Pro mode is total NHL player role playing at it's best. In this mode you can even pick your favorite NHL player and guide him through a season.

Just playing this mode alone I highly recommend any sports fan to pick this game up.
Even if you're not a hardcore hockey fan like I am I really think you'll love this game.

That's the same as MLB The Show.

EA is resorting to stealing ideas. They suck so bad. :)

HaHa no doubt that it's been done before. I did enjoy playing as a player I created in MLB The Show, but I fucking love playing as a player I created in NHL 09. EA really nailed it. I'm so addicted to this mode. I've played 15 games already, and my player has 11 goals and 11 assists. It shouldn't be long before Dallas calls me up! :)

The greatest for me was getting traded to the A's and leading them to a world series victory!!! :)

A little off topic, Guys... I have a question. Two days ago I saw this site:
[url=http://www.rivalspot.com]Rivalspot.com - Wii tournaments for money[/url]
They say you can play online Fight Night game tournaments on any console for cash... had anyone tried that before? Looks like a cool idea...
Are there any other sites where you can play sports games for real moneys? I Googled and found only Bringit.com and Worldgaming.com but it looks these guys don't specialize in sport gamez. Any suggestions?

About Me

My photo
Kalamazoo, Michigan, United States
I'm 38. I'm addicted to Xbox 360 gaming and Dallas Stars hockey. I make a decent living at a boring job where I run two autoclaves and do various other tasks. My escape from this boring as hell life is video games, hockey, and music. I generally listen to Metal music, but I also love 80's tunes as well as 70's tunes. I have an unusual love for the band Overkill. They do it for me for some reason. Blitz is GOD!
