4.5 You'd better have the right gamepad amour159 | 27/12/2008 | See all amour159's reviews (3) I own NHL 2002, and thought after seven years of further development it would be worth buying NHL 09. Wrong!First major problem: abysmal gamepad support. My Microsoft Sidewinder Gamepad USB, which works fine with NHL 2002, cannot be used with this game. According to EA, if you don't have one of these, it's not supported:Logitech Dual Action Gamepad (Revision 2 , theres 2 versions of the controller)Logitech Rumblepad 2Logitech Rumblepad 2 CordlessLogitech ChillstreamThat's it - just 4 supported controllers - unbelieveable!Second major problem - no useful on-line support. They've scrapped the lobby, so you can only play on-line if you've arranged it with a friend beforehand and know each other's IP addresses.Third major problem - missing features. Go to the NHL 09 official website and you'll read about new features such as EA Sports Hockey League. Surprisingly, they forgot to mention that this and other features simply don't exist on the PC version.I wish I hadn't bought this game - the PC version is a complete waste of money, and I'll be sticking to NHL 2002.
