Co-op Fail

Only reason I wanted this one was a friend and I were hoping to play a season together online against the AI. Our only option though was an unranked exhibition match in which almost none of the settings (auto/manual passing, for one) were available for changing. If we wanted to use our created players, it would fill out the team with generic nobodies. AI learning ensures that your opponents are pros and your teammates are morons. It's almost impossible to even break an opponent's stride once he has the puck, yet the wind from a passing opponent can cause you to lose all coordination. Gave it an average score because it's still pretty to look at and plays decently enough, if you don't mind going solo. I can only hope in vain that one day EA will realize that sometimes gamers do actually have friends (albeit the kind that are a little past the age of sleepovers), and they will put a little more effort into the co-op modes.
