Every year EA makes a few additions to the gameplay although it has basically been kept the same as NHL 11. They have found a successful formula in keeping the best of the old and adding a few new things. This year we now have the helmet coming off, hitting a player to send him in the bench area, contacts with the goalie (you can hit the goalie, he can hit you), goalie fights which is really cool, shattered glass and the nets can be moved more easily. EA Sports claim there is a better physical engine and I have to say they're right. This is especially true when playing Be a Pro/Legend where you can notice some improvements when it comes to control, hitting other players and shooting. EA have always been about realism and this year it's a little better than the last. However it doesn't "look" any different from what I've experienced it's very much the same graphics. The one big change is in Be a Pro when it comes to gameplay. Now unlike previous titles you can't spend 45 minutes on the ice. Before you could play pretty much as long as you wanted by pressing the B button and taking another player's place on the Ice. Instead of doing that you "simulate" until your next shift on the ice. Now the amount of play your player gets depends on the line you're on. Basically the big new thing in NHL 12 is that you can now play as select legends in whatever team you want. Say what you will playing as those legends is a cool option that should've been available before this year, I'm glad this addition was made.

The Be a Pro mode now offers the possibility of developing in the CHL before being drafted to the NHL which is a nice option and enhance realism factor. Plus there are all time records you can beat which makes it all the more challenging.

Been playing the NHL franchise for well over 20 years and this year's version is great once again, online team play in the EASHL is awesome. Many small improvements over last year's game but when combined make for a decent impact. Not sure EA shouldn't start selling these franchise games as $35 updates, but NHL 12 is definitely the best hockey game on the video game market (maybe the only hockey game).

THIS is what happens when there's no competition.

Let's see, what's broken about NHL 12?
1. Your AI D will still go behind the net, hug the boards, and wait to turn the puck over.
2. Goalie fights in EASHL are a complete waste. I play RW and really REALLY enjoy sitting around doing nothing for 5 minutes because of a goalie fight (it's the RW who goes into the penalty box).
3. I love how if I'm standing near the goalie, I seemingly HAVE to fight him if he so chooses.
4. The hitting was toned down to the point where you can absolutely crush someone, and they will often just shrug you off.
5. The puck still loves to fall off your stick for no reason, and you still fall down at points that are ridiculous.
6. I am the leading scorer in the league in Be A Pro, and guess what ... no power play time. I can not press B and play on the PP. Yeah, that seems to make sense. Oh yeah, you can sit and watch the shootout, too, because apparently your sixth defenseman is far more dangerous than you and your 4 points-per-game average.
7. Boosts are still there. And I still hate them. I either pay a bunch of money to have my online character better, or have to suffer through Be A Pro.
8. Players online clearly know exactly what attributes to use, as per usual. So, at this point in time, they skate so much faster than the AI D, that they skate consistently right past them. And I'm sure they'll find more exploits and cheats.

And the following needs to be addressed NOW!!!

9. FIX THE MATCHING SYSTEM! I'm SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO tired of ONE person ruining a Lobby game because they did not get the position they wanted. Let us choose the position BEFORE. How hard is this? Because, apparently, its too difficult for someone to pick a position or leave.

Thanks EA! I'm SURE NHL 13' will be better! (the common refrain of the EA damned).

Like the title says, it's a great and fluent game but EA Sports is yet again stealing our money by releasing these sports games every year and still making the presentation horrible.

The teams always come out to the same intro and with the same animation.

The commentators still say the same things.

My Be a Pro goalie always goes through the same routines and animations.

The AI can be anticipated (meaning a skater will stop near the boards for someone to come and trip him up).

It's sad, really. Overall, it's a good game but after your second game played in Be a Pro you will have seen and heard everything at least twice already. Come on, EA. Don't be idiots.

save yourself the trouble of the ridiculousness in NHL 13 (line changes that change themselves even when set on manual, human players that can't check even when the slider is all the way up, nets that get constantly dislodged because players crash into goalies yet no interference penalties are called, a complete lack of fights because there is almost no stoppage between plays, goalies that flop instead of make saves, defense that glues itself to your teammates when they get within 5 feet from the net, and way too many goals that take place in the last 30 seconds of each period)

stick with NHL 12 - adjust the sliders to how you want the game to stay, create your own roster update (not that hard, there was only like 30 transactions since April), and don't worry about the "realistic skating" in NHL 13, because it's honestly not that huge of a deal. The only difference in skating is that you can't do a tight turn or even stop when going full speed, because apparently every NHL player has no idea on how to turn or stop when going full speed. It's not like they're gifted and trained athletes or anything that have been on skates since they were like 3 years old.

anyway - again, stick with NHL 12.. wait for NHL 14 (and hopefully the hockey season will start by then)
