A lot or a little?

The parents' guide to what's in this app.

Ease of Play

The touch-based controls are fairly simple to pick up and play in this game. Understanding the rules of hockey helps, but there is a practice mode with tips.

 

Violence

Like most other hockey games, Hockey Nations 2011 Pro is somewhat violent, as it's a full-contact sport. Players can body check opponents on the ice and up against the boards -- just like real hockey. Plus, this game also lets you fistfight without gloves against other players from a first-person perspective. Using finger gestures on the screen or via the device's built in sensors, you can punch opponents in the face.

What parents need to know

Parents need to know that HOCKEY NATIONS 2011 PRO is more violent than some other hockey apps. Along with the ability to body check rival players, you can engage in fighting in this game -- from a first-person perspective -- which includes the ability to punch opponents in the face, pull the jersey over their head, and so on (much like some console games that allow fighting). The violence is cartoonlike, and players get a time-out penalty for fighting.

Is it any good?

There are a number of hockey games for Apple's i-Devices, and HOCKEY NATIONS 2011 PRO offers many features not found in other games, such as head-to-head multiplayer options (over Wi-Fi or Bluetooth), lots of customization options (play as 18 international teams or edit team names and colors to create your own favorite NHL team), and seven different modes to choose from (Practice, Exhibition, World League, Go for Gold, Shootout, Playoff, and Multiplayer). The game also allows you to engage in fistfights against rival players, using gestures to punch or by using the device's accelerometer (motion sensor); this might interest some as it's not always found in mobile hockey games. The controls are now smoother with a recent game update, plus the 3D graphics and animations are impressive (including replays from different camera angles). Hockey Nations 2011 Pro might not be an officially licensed NHL game but proves to be a fun one with plenty of depth and breadth.
