NHL 2K11 is a decent option for die-hard hockey fans, but the series needs a bit more work. The motion controls are inconsistent, lacking precision at times. Also, the game doesn't appear to use MotionPlus effectively. The accessory's strongest advantage -- 1-to-1 motion control -- is wasted on simple swipes that could have easily been used without MotionPlus. Outside that, the game doesn't seem to change much compared to the previous year's release. Also, controls might prove complicated for novices to the series, and tutorials are difficult to find. It's a solid simulation, but NHL 2K11 should offer more options for rookie players to enter the action with ease.
