Upon receipt of NHL13 you will need to pull down the 37MB patch (1.01) for your brand-new game. You'll also want to download updates for a few tuner/roster settings. Having played 4 games online thus far, I'd say it's pretty consistent with what you'll experience if you've played the demo. Player speeds seem to be a little more noticeable between characters (in otherwords, if you've set your accel/speed higher, it should pay dividends compared to last year). I haven't received the boost pack code from amazon yet, but I think the terms/conditions say they've got ~2 days to e-mail that.

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.

If I had rated this product when it first came out it would be 4-5 stars, as they had the skating engine working great where users could not simply skate in circles waiting for the defender to be a step behind, but then with one of the patches, they moved everything back to the old skate dancing tactics, which are frustrating to watch when playing online. If they're going to say it is realistic, they should have stuck with the original product.

The new momentum element seems to be controversial among fans of the series but personally I appreciate it as it adds realistic game play. The faster a skater is moving the more difficult it is to turn a sharper angle. Deking with the puck also slows the player down slightly as it should. Players bump into each other more realistically, sometimes knocking the puck lose. The speed burst is another positive addition. Players fatigue from speed bursts as they would for real. Players seem to reflect their actual skills more accurately so if you have Crosby on a break away in full speed he seems to handle the task with greater skill than an average player. The graphics seem slightly better as well. For example the ice is less reflective which was sometimes a distraction in the previous version. Contact can be made with the goalie which can either lead to a penalty or sometimes jar the puck loose or simply knock the net off the moorings. On that note, goalies have been greatly enhanced. They produce much more realistic rebounds. The puck also never balances on the goalies shoulder for seconds at a time (thank god!). The cut scenes in between game plays is much better. The addition of the camera in net behind goalie is especially welcome although sometimes the goalies backside obscures the action. In general the cut scenes seem to have better camera angles and focus on highlights rather than monotonous plays. It should be said that the arenas seem to be extremely accurate to the actual venues. It's this attention to detail that should be appreciated. There's a feature that lets you play historical NHL moments which can be entertaining to play on occasion but I find it gets a bit boring after a while. It is nice that you have the option to chose a difficulty level in these segments however.Read more ›

I would actually give it 4.5 out of 5 but I rounded up. There are so many cool things about this game.
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
BLOOD
loosing teeth
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
classic teams
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
