Top Customer Reviews
Graphics: A lot more polished compared to last year. The character renders are really solid and the overall presentation has fewer delays. Otherwise, a lot of the animations seem similar to previous years, though some physics tweaks have already brought about a few comical collisions.
Audio: The commentary has been updated, as has the audio track. It's nice to get new music, but note that you can pull your own tunes off your PS3 using the "EA Sports Media Hub", going into "Custom Music" and then pulling in your own songs (you've put music on your ps3.... right?). After a few days, I typically turn down the in-game commentary. I got really tired of hearing "a soft dump into the corner" during NHL12 every 10 minutes -- this is in reference to a play where forwards send the puck ahead into the offensive zone aka "dumping the puck."
Gameplay: It feels pretty different with the addition of more flexible backwards skating, new physics on your skating mechanics and more "bumping" other characters.Read more ›
1 the physics. its better to go see a youtube video on this then to describe it in words.
2 the other professional hockey leagues. I thought this game only had NHL teams nope this game has that plus like 10 other leagues very cool.
3 it has a control scheme similar to one of the greatest hockey games of all time NHL 94. if you really want to experience all the great dekes ( there is a video on how to do so many different dekes on youtube).
4 I love all the little details like helmets flying off the puck hitting goalie pads and squeaking in, sticks breaking and guys playing through injury till the whistle blows.
5 the speed of the game. I love how i make about 20 shots on goal in a period not 60 as i have in some games.
6 the winter classic games. it has this years and last years games but you can always add your own teams.
7 all the camera angles its a little hard to play but the broadcast camera is so sweet
8 the chatter of the players on the ice
9 playing as a goalie ( which is in my opinion is difficult) and making an diving save
10 skating backwards, its east to do and has a tactical advantage
Wishlist of things not in this game that would be cool:
toggle the 1st person camera during fights
more of a broadcast feel
customize the actual puck. like put team logos on ot or import my own pictures.
complete customizable controls
customize the goalies masks
include NHL 94 in the game like when madden included madden 93 a few years ago
all the jerseys in the teams history ( this might be unlockable I don't know i have only played the game for about 7 hours)
share customized teams like ncaa football
