    I would probably watch ice hockey if it's available where I'm from.

    The problem is that it's not that GOOD. Hockey fans have literally been waiting years for a good solid hockey game on mobile, hopes were high for this to be it, and it isn't. I can't even play it on my 6 Plus due to touch detection. It somehow passed beta testing and went through to full release unplayable to anyone with a new phone.

    NHL 2k

    2K Sports returns with a new game on the mobile device. Well, they are back and it is fun playing hockey on my iPad. Let's jump right to my biggest complaint - dumbed down controls. You have the puck and your options are to pass, shoot, or skate fast. No way to protect the puck and no deking buttons. However, the computer has no problem protecting the puck to keep it away from you or diving to break up a play, so there is hope that these controls can be added for the user in the future. Without the puck you can change players or hit one button that acts as both a check or a poke depending where you are in relation to the other player. Again, this is not the best in terms of having full control of your player. With the over simplified controls this game is like playing hockey games back in the 90s. I only hope that 2K continues to upgrade and support this title and makes the game more complex with more buttons or even the addition of a second analog stick. At least I am playing hockey on my iPad, but it isn't the greatest game ever made.

    I have only played a few single player games as it just came out. I will update this once I get a few more games under my belt. Make sure you turn down the game speed to slow or it is way too fast.

    This game does support WFI Controllers, so maybe that offers more control that the other modes lack. I do not have a controller so I am not sure if the controls are the same?

    So have we just accepted that a bunch of people paid 7-8 bucks for a game that is unplayable to any iPhone 6-6+ users that hasn't had an urgent update pushed through? The smdh factor with this game is off the charts.

    Updated rosters?

    Anyone figure out how to downloaded updated rosters? The ones included are from mid-September or so. I thought one of the features was "live rosters"?

    New update that fixes this for iPhone 6/6plus.
    For the first time getting to play it I must say it definitely has its shortcomings but it is so much better than 2k11. I can now say it's fun however I'd also try and wait for a sale, wouldn't consider it a premium game by any means.

    I definitely recommend it! Sure, it isn't perfect, but it is the best mobile hockey game out there.

    It's not bad, but it's just not the game we were all hoping for. Largely unchanged from the first one from 2011.

    So I am playing career mode as a player. How can I see who is leading my team in goals assists? These "player stats" are pointless fluff. How can I check the progress of my own player? I see a "player card" option and it looks like it might work, but if your player isn't one of the top 50 players in category you are SOL to even see his stats for the year. Pointless to even play.

    This game crashes on title screen when asking if I want to enable iCloud save.
    I'm on 6S plus. Tried to delete and reinstall but it doesn't fix it.
    Anyone else with this problem?

    Well I guess it doesn't really matter but I guess this game got pulled. Not sure when but its gone. Sad that there's still not a good hockey game on iOS. This was a step in the right direction at least.
    Seems typical for 2k now a days anyway right ?
