Overreactive much?

It's not bad at all. If you are seriously thinking about not buying this for the fighting, then don't let your child watch hockey on tv.

Too much consumerism

I'm not saying you shouldn't buy this, but..

The AI is pretty cr*ppy. They don't play the boards, they're scared of the puck, pass when they're not near you, Zdeno Chara (6 foot 9) is faster than Brian Gionta (5 foot 7), and the goalie just gives away the puck. Everything else is good.

It is very fun!

This game is very fun! The only reason why I would rate this 9 and up is because of the fights and checking. There is a multiplayer mode if you have a code or buy the EA online pass, but you can not hear the other player. If you love hockey, I would very much recommend this game. If you do happen to get mad over this game, than do not play it. My brother gets mad when he loses to me a lot and he has to stop playing it. I love this game!
