So, I have always been into the nhl games, dating way back to my first one, nhl 95 on the 16 bit, lol..yet it had been years since i picked up a game, and wow have things changed for the better. I'd never really messed w/ the skill stick in the few times i played nhl 07 and so on, once i got it down though did i use it to my advantage, the A.I is pretty on point for the most part, although glitches do happen and sometimes your squad does make some dumb penalties that if you know hockey, you would never do, sometimes the opposing defense is just as bad. The forecheck seems to be so much more realistic and when you use the manual goalie and get it down, it makes for some very impressive saves. I ended up just keeping this game for the long haul, in short i don't really get down w/ ultimate team but be a player is fresh, especially trying to come up as a left winger w/ the blue jackets than dominating. In short its a great game if you love hockey, even if you don't, it's still definitely worth a rental for a weekend.
