Overall, I think that EA has put together a solid game. The graphics are some of the best I have seen out of a hockey game, and the new be a pro feature is absolutely awesome. The main problem I have had with the game is the difficulty of the controls and the lack of sprinting ability (the controls just do not feel natural). It is hard to go hard into the boards or to try and beat out an icing call. I think EA needs to work out a better system and improve the gameplay itself before they start adding in complex controls. Also once the other players get behind the defense, even with the fastest players it is hard to catch them. With a little more tweaking, I think that EA could have an end all/ be all hockey game. Until then it is just good. Hopefully EA continues on with the series, and continues to improve upon it as they have in the past!
