2.0 out of 5 stars Still Fun September 14, 2011
By Paul
Platform for Display:PlayStation 3
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
They game still has its flaws but it's also made some improvements. Overall it's still fun and probably the best sports sim game out. I've played each of the NHL games extensively over the past few years, what I'll focus on here is game play.

Improvements:
-Checking, the physics engine has in fact been revamped and checking is much more realistic. Huge guys will not get slaughtered by 160 lb short guys.

-Defensive AI, the defense has been improved in defending a 1 on 1 or a 2 on 1. Players don't automatically get a free goal for performing the same deak that used to always work to get around a defender

-Goalies, AI has been improved

-Physical play in front of the net

-Stick handeling, it's been revamped, not everyone handles the puck like it's on a string.

-The time between face offs after a whistle has been blown has been reduced (You don't have to waste 10 minutes every game watching people check each other after a whistle).

-Hip checks don't always send someone head over heals by just touching, physics have been improved.

Flaws:
The flaws are mostly in the AI.

-Sometimes the defense will randomly ice the puck in a 5 on 5.

-Sometimes the defense will bail on touching the puck for icing

-AI still lacks aggression in stick checking, etc, when defending an offensive zone rush.

-Far too much contact can be made with the goaly without incurring a penalty

-Occasional graphical/physics glitches, the puck still travels through sticks on occasion or shots are made without the stick visually making contact with the puck.

1.0 out of 5 stars Beyond Disappointed With This Years Attempt January 30, 2012
By BLee85
Platform for Display:PlayStation 3
Fun: 1.0 out of 5 stars   
This years EA Sports NHL title falls extremely short of being anything special. Aside from the fact they added in the Winter Classic and goalie fights the game pretty much remains unchanged from NHL 11. The EA Sports team that works on this game must not watch hockey because what they claim to be real hockey in the game wouldn't even pass for a pee-wee hockey game in terms of excitement. Goals come way to easy no matter the difficulty, hits are bland and repetitive, hip checking is almost impossible and if you're lucky enough to connect you will get a penalty called on you for interference 9/10 times. There are numerous issues with freezing on both systems as well that EA refuses to fix as well. Jersey colors are wrong on a majority of teams, and logo sizes are wrong on every single jersey. Honestly I could go on forever about what is wrong with this game, the best part about this game though is that I can take it out of my PS3 and put it back in its case and let it collect dust beside all of EA Sports' failed sports games from this year. I really wish I could consistently put out a horrible half-hearted product year after year and people would still continue to purchase it.

2.0 out of 5 stars Typical EA Sports Crap April 8, 2012
Platform for Display:PlayStation 3|Verified Purchase
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Edit: Everyone who says it freezes is right. It's a good game but seriously EA, can we have a game without serious flaws and bugs? It sucks when you are in a great game like me tonight Pittsburgh vs Florida 1-0 (me losing) when with 1:53 to go I tie the game. Then as soon as I cross the blue line to try for the win, freezes, nothing you can do but quit the game. EA should be ashamed of themselves for releasing games with these problems, but instead they laugh all the way to the bank because there is no competition and suckers like me buy their crap.

I was expecting the worst after reading some of the reviews on Amazon. I have to say I was pleasantly surprised by this EA sports title. Surprised because EA is possibly the laziest and worst sports game franchise out there, and they created the abomination that is Madden 12. Anyway, this game is really pretty good, the commentary is fluid, as is gameplay. The controls are pretty good (you use the analog sticks for everything, which is great for a hockey game). The only problems are a few minor flaws which, considering this is an EA title, are not horrible.
The first thing I was excited about is custom music, yes, you can play your own music from the ps3 during menus and Be A Pro Goals, however I find that after a game, the menu music stops and you surf the menu in silence (which is ok, because the music on this game sucks, seriously, they have Mony Mony by Billy Idol???) The second problem is the menu interface, which is just as sloppy and annoying as that of the worst sports game of all time, Madden 12. Gameplay is great however, it makes me wonder if EA did some headhunting of 2k sports programmers for this one.

1.0 out of 5 stars crashes more than finishes February 25, 2013
By me
Platform for Display:PlayStation 3|Verified Purchase
This game is as glitchy as the other reviewers claim.

I've tried it around 25 times and have actually completed three games. if it doesn't lock up when loading a profile, you can make it through some of the game before it just plain locks up.

very disappointed.

4.0 out of 5 stars Minor changes, still great! September 14, 2011
By rhobes
Platform for Display:PlayStation 3
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
As an avid hockey fan, I forked over (yet again) my hard earned cash to buy this year's latest edition of NHL.
Here are some of my early impressions of the game:

Diving right into it, you'll be faced with EA's annoying online pass requirement. In all honesty I didn't like that at all last year, and am disappointed to see it stick around for the 2012 tour. Your wallet will end up taking a hit if you find that you prefer the older version and would like to re-sell this one.

In any case, past that you'll notice that the menus are a bit smoother and more organized than in previous years. The amount of modes and content is substantial - almost overwhelming, but if you've played this game before then you'll know what direction you'd rather go in (Online gaming, Be a Pro, etc).

As far as the game play's concerned:
1) The puck handles differently: After a game or two you'll start to notice that the puck isn't glued to your player's stick anymore - like it used to be in NHL 10 & 11. Expect to lose possession more than before.

2) The goalies are harder to score on: Mainly during breakaways (at least that's what appears to be the case so far). In NHL 11, you could pull off the same deke time & time again and almost always score a goal.

3) Game freezes and disconnections: Had this happen during an unranked game last night, it took AGES to be able to start a game, and after succeeding it still froze up (for a few seconds). There was no lag on either side, so seems to be a server issue on EA's side - and I guess that'll get cleared up eventually.

To wrap up, I've found that it'll take a bit of time get used to this year's edition... but then again that seems to be the case in most sports games.
