For its fourth appearance on Xbox 360, the NHL 2K series introduces a new control scheme designed to simplify the complicated moves associated with previous installments. Other changes include several refinements to the presentation, with new crowd animations, pre-game introductions, game summaries, user-controlled celebrations, and yes, playoff beards. Randy Hahn and Drew Remenda handle the new play-by-play and color commentary, respectively, and the on-ice action incorporates over 1,400 animations for more lifelike displays of athleticism. Exclusive to the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 versions is a feature entitled "Reel Maker." Fans can record clips of their favorite dekes, checks, and goals, edit them, and upload the results online for the community to review. For a whimsical break from the main game, you can partake in a Zamboni driving challenge that involves quickly cleaning a series of rinks before time expires. The 2K Beats soundtrack features such artists as :Pennywise, :Bad Religion, :the Offspring, :NOFX, :the Ramones, :Inner Circle, :Mastodon, :Operation Ivy, and :High on Fire.
