NHL 2K10 is an ice hockey simulation game, and the last title in the NHL 2K series to be released on a PlayStation console. The game is officially licensed from the National Hockey League and the NHL Players Association. New features include AI enhancements, true-to-life character models, rink intros for each arena, and improved goal celebrations. Randy Hahn and Drew Remenda add the broadcast commentary.
NHL 2K10 received lukewarm reviews with an average score of 67%, praised for its graphics and character animations, but criticized for its overly simplified game modes.
NHL 2K10 was released in September 2009, and includes 2 online trophies. Unfortunately, the online servers were shut down in November 2012, which means those two online trophies cannot be unlocked. Therefore, the Platinum for this game has become Not Obtainable.
NHL 2K10 includes two online trophies: Panthers Trophy and Coyotes Trophy. Since the online servers were closed in November 2012, these two trophies can no longer be unlocked. Therefore, the Platinum trophy for NHL 2K10 is now Not Obtainable. However, there are still 47 offline trophies that can be unlocked, so if you're still interested, then read on.
The game doesn't really require a roadmap, but if you're in need of some direction, we recommend starting with the Single Game related trophies, to which there are 20. These can be unlocked in any order of your choosing. Before starting a game, hit Triangle for Game Options and change the arena to Wrigley Field, then win the game for the It's Cold Out Here trophy. Do this again, only select Mini-Rink and win for the Mini Rink trophy. For the Canucks Trophy, simply select Vancouver and win against either the Rangers or islanders, to which the settings can be done on Easy with a one minute period. For details on the other single player trophies, check out the NHL 2K10 trophy guide links under our Links tab to see their requirements.
Once those are out of the way, you can head into Franchise mode. You'll need to win 17 games in a row for the Penguins Trophy. You can set the difficulty to Easy and boost all the player stats to 99 to make things easier when going for the playoffs. Once you defeat the other team in four games in the Finals, you'll win the Stanley Cup and unlock the Islanders Trophy, as well as several others in the process.
There are also two Create mode trophies to obtain. In the Main Menu, select Manage Roster and Create Team. Once you've gone through the process, you'll have unlocked the Rangers Trophy. Then, select Create Player and, once finished, you'll get the Ducks Trophy.
There are also a number of trophies related to reaching certain stats, which are accumulative. To view your progress, head into Trophy Room and hit Triangle. These include having played 500 games, earning 2000 points, getting 30 power play goals, etc. Since these are accumulative, we recommend saving these for last, and grinding for them after you've unlocked all the other offline trophies.
Unfortunately, with the online servers shut down, this is as far as we can go.
