SUMMARY: Play authentic hockey on your iPhone

Hockey Nations 2010 is an authentic hockey app which will throw you into the action like no other game in the app store. Unlike most apps which are just a table hockey game, this app is an actual hockey game. The game is controlled by an onscreen joystick and buttons in the bottom right corner.

It played exactly like some of the older hockey games on the Sega Genesis or similar consoles. Players can pick to play an exhibition match, practice with a team, engage in a shootout, or put their favorite team through a tournament.

The games controls were pretty simple though it took some time to get used to. They didn't always feel responsive to what I was trying to do but that could have been my overall lack of skill. One annoying feature was how fast the opposing team could skate. On occasion, I would steal the puck and skate away using my turbo only to have the other team easily follow me around, catch me, and steal it back. It seemed a little too cheap. Overall, this game was good. It's the only one of its kind that I know of in the app store and runs for a medium price. Check it out.
