Hint: Discovering codes:
While playing the game, when you get a goal you will
see short FMV sequence afterwards. In one clip, you can see the
player go over to the side of the rink and see the crowd. At the
top you will see some people holding and flipping signs. Look
at them closely and you will notice that they form codes, such
as "N N N Down." Press X, Y, and B
followed by the D-pad direction at the vs. screen to activate
Hint: Easy credits:
Play a game with the difficulty starting at the rookie
setting. Before the game ends and displays your total stats, enter
the pause menu and change the difficulty to All-Star. You will
now get All-Star credits which can be used to buy things.
Hint: Easy goals:
When creating a team, make one player left handed.
When picking your hot spot, make it on the right faceoff circle.
When playing a game enable the "Show the team's hot spot"
code, put the left-handed player as your defense, win the faceoff,
and get it to your defender. Skate up and shoot from where the
hot spot is located. You will make it in 9 out of 10 times.
Go around your opponent's net and pass the puck to the player
that is on the other side of the net. Pass it to him, and shoot
immediately. The goalie will not be on that side, so it is easier
When on one side of the net, cross over to the other side. When
you reach the other post, shoot a slapshot or a normal shot.
LoGiBeAr and MuShRoOm.
When choosing your players do not worry if their shooting or passing
is good. Choose someone who has high checking. Then, have your
player skate up ice and check the goalie down. Whoever has the
puck will have a wide open net to score on.
When you have the puck, go around the goal of the opposing team.
Stay away from the goalie or he will knock you down. When you
get in almost straight across from the goalie, shoot the puck
while pressing the Left Analog-stick diagonally. Note:
This will only work a few times.
When you and a friend are playing against the CPU, have your friend
check the goalie down. The goalie will fall down and you can score
easilly. This is useful in franchise and Stanley Cup playoff modes.
When you have the puck, go all the way left and keep passing.
Once next to the goal, pass then shoot fast. Sooner or later you
will get a goal. This works best when the "Unlimited turbo"
code is enabled.
Go down the side of the rink and get behind the net. Then skate
front of it and shoot. You can also go down the rink between the
middle and side of it as fast as you possible and completely stop
slightly after the blue line. You can do this by pressing the
Analog-stick Back, then turn towards the goal and shoot.
Get the puck and fake a wrap around. Then, pass it to the man
in front of the net . Make sure that it is a 1-timer. Note: This
works best with the AVs.
Hint: Easy wins:
Stats or attributes do not make a big difference in
your game. The way you play will affect your game. Remember what
happens during game play (for example, when you have the puck
and get checked down and your opponent scores). Never make the
same mistake again in your game or you will most likely lose.
Always keep the puck moving. While you pass the puck around in
the defending zone, the opponents goalie gets tired so you have
a better chance of scoring. A good location to put your hot spot
(creating a team) is directly on the blue line dead center with
the opposing net.
Hint: Easy store credits:
This trick requires at least two controllers. Put one
player on one team and player two on the other. Set the period
length to three minutes and start a game. Only use one of the
controllers and let the player to remain idle. You can score and
get lots of points fast and easy. The two remaining men not controlled
directly by the other player will still check you and take the
puck, but will not be able to score. You will also get two chances
at the trivia question. If you get the question correct, both
players will get the trivia points. Note: For each difficulty
setting you will get a different amount of points: 100 for Rookie
and 200 for All-Star.
Win the Midway Cup in franchise mode to unlock 5,000 extra credits
for use in the hockey shop.
Use the following trick to unlock everything as fast as possible
with the least amount of work. To get 200 very easy credits without
having to slave away on All-star mode, begin the game on the All-Star
difficulty setting. Then, after the first face-off, go into your
game settings and change the difficulty setting to Rookie. This
will make the game much easier to play. When the clock is winding
down in a period, make sure you change the difficulty back to
All-Star before the period ends. The CPU will think that you played
the whole period under the All-Star difficulty setting. Pepeat
this for all three periods and you will end the game with 200
credits if you won.
For easy one player credits, select "Custom Team", start
a team, but take all the attributes away from every person. Exit
and save, then enter exhibition mode and play that team.
At the start of an exhibition game press Start and select
"Game Settings". Go to "Skill Level" and change
it to "Rookie". The CPU should now be easy to defeat.
Pause game play again with ten seconds left on the clock. Change
the "Skill Level" to "All Star". Instead of
getting 50 credits for the win, you will get 150.
Hint: Easy attributes points:
Go to franchise mode and win a game to get 6 attribute
Hint: Easy Level 3 Power Shot:
When the "Code Input" screen appears for
Skillz challenge, enter the "Bulldozer Puck" (2-1-2
Left) code. This will make the boxes take less hits, so it will
Hint: Easy fights:
When playing the game with a friend, check the CPU
player and not the one that your friend is controlling. This may
get you into a fight.
Hint: Finishing move during fights:
While fighting a bar is displayed, showing how much
life you have. When your opponent's bar is almost empty, press
B to do a wrestling-type move to finish the fight. If you
have enough money, buy different heads. When you press B
with one of the heads equipped, it will do a special move. For
example, the shark head will bite the opponent and alien head
will zap him.
Hint: Stall for time with fights:
If you are ahead of a team that cannot afford to lose
to, stay by your goal or a distance behind the blue line and keep
pressing Y (Deke) whenever the player guarding you comes
at you. This basically starts a fight, and eats up time that the
other team could use to score on you. Not only will you randomly
get the puck taken away from you, nobody else from the opposing
team will come at you.
Hint: More skill competition levels:
Successfully complete all of the skills in a competition
level to unlock an additional level.
Hint: Get faceoffs:
Faceoffs are somewhat like a Paper, Rock, Scissors
game, where one move beats another. In the game, A is similar
to Paper, B is similar to Rock, and X is similar
to Scissors -- A beats B, B beats X,
and X beats A. You can tell what the other person
does by watching their stick. When they press A, their
stick will twitch. When they press B, their hand will come
off of the back of the stick. When they press X, they will
hold their stick up high.
Hint: Crowd sounds:
Press White during a game to make the crowd
cheer. Press Black to make the crowd boo.
Hint: Catch fire:
Score a hat-trick with a player. To catch a team fire,
score three consecutive one-timers with any player on your team.
Hint: Team fire:
Score three one-timers without letting the other team
Hint: End opponent's fire:
To extinguish the opposite team's fire, you must score
a goal after a player catches fire or score a one-timer when the
other team has a team fire.
Hint: Better created team:
Create six players and remove all of the last three
players' experience points. Give them to the first three players.
That should give the first three players all the experience they
Hint: Use team without buying them:
If you want to use a team in the Hockey Shop, first
you buy the team. Then, go to exit, save, and select continue
without saving. You can now use the team. To get your money back,
do not save at all after you buy the team. Reset after you are
