I was really excited to finally play a next gen hockey game because the last game i had was 2k6 for xbox and i did my research and came to the conclusion that this is better then the 2k version well they both are horrible ill tell you why. The who being able to control ur stick is amazing but using it to shoot is just annoying. There is no use of the x,b,y,a buttons other then just calling plays so your forced to pass and do other tasks with just the triggers which also gets absolutely annoying. Another thing is trying to play defense it is so hard to lineup on a guy to hit because the sliding i know its on ice but honestly its horrible in this game. But the main reason this game is horrible is no features wat so ever. There is only dynasty mode and even in dynasty mode there is no fantasy draft or anything. O ya there is create a player but thats just lame. There is a reason hockey games are dying. This is a sad excuse for a hockey game
What seems to be common these days with EASports. The game is just horrible, the control is unbarable. And these are things that are becoming the norm in recent years with EA. Is it that they just don't care.
