Legendary hockey player Wayne Gretzky lends his name and likeness to EA's first pro hockey game on Wii. The game includes a scaled-down hockey stick peripheral that holds both the Wii Remote and Nunchuk in a vertical line. The optional peripheral is held like an actual stick and is designed to detect slapshots, wrist shots, body checks, and poke checks through motion-sensitive actions. In addition to the gesture-based controls, the Wii Remote's trigger functions as a modifier for passes, dekes, and other on-ice moves. Guide your favorite NHL team through a complete season, the Stanley Cup Finals, or in mini-games. The exclusive "Pee-Wee to Pro" mode has you guiding the Great One himself throughout his amateur and professional career. You can also create your own athlete in this mode, with Gretzky serving as your custom athlete's coach and mentor.
