I usually love EA's hockey games. I don't love this one. The controls are sloppy, the controls feel delayed, a TON of weak goals are scored, and goalies do an awful job of covering the puck. The human team's AI is also poor. The computer controlled team has great spacing on offense and moves the puck like an actual NHL team. The human team's computer controlled players stay very close to each other, and skate away from loose pucks. The best thing about this game is that it will make the price of last year's game go down.
A little slower then '10, but then you get to set ups plays better. Thats cool. I also like the dropped stick, broken stick addition, makes it more interesting. I have also had some goals disallowed. For high stick, and kicking it in. That's new. Really fun game. The only add on I can see coming next is players losing helmets and gloves. Maybe I just need to work on my ckecking skills. We'll see.
