For the first time ever, EA SPORTS brings NHL to the Wii with NHL Slapshot. Along with it, the game introduces a revolutionary hockey stick controller that allows players to shoot, pass and body check just like the pros.
You started out like all the pros do: wobbly on the ice, playing three-on-three in the neighborhood rink. All that has changed now. You've trained and drilled until your blades dulled, and you've earned your spot on the NHL roster. Now the pressure is on: it's the championship game and the Stanley Cup is within your grasp. There's one minute to go and you hurl yourself toward the puck, feel it nestle against your stick and bolt into a breakaway. You hear the scraping of your opponents' blades close behind you. Your muscles tire but you hold your stick firmly in your hands. The goal is just feet away and the moment is yours for the taking: will you make the championship-winning Slapshot and become a hockey legend?
All of the realistic, exhilarating action is in your own two hands when you pick up the NHL Slapshot hockey stick accessory - skillfully deke, check and shoot with the stick and watch your moves translate into real-time action on your screen. When you control every move, it's up to you to make all of your hockey dreams come true. Start as a peewee and work your way up to play with all of your NHL heroes in a demanding career mode. Do you want to achieve the ultimate level of hockey greatness? Seize the opportunity to take the ice as "The Great One," Wayne Gretzky, and experience what it's like to be a living legend. Whether you're riveting your eyes to the prize or just shooting the net with friends in fun mini games, you'll never want to unlace your skates and step away from NHL Slapshot.
