NHL 12

One of EA's worst games in recent years. It is very unpolished. Game play itself is pretty good, the new physics engine is pretty good. Finally being able to battle in front of the net, as well as have pucks deflect instead of just dying is pretty cool. The game freezes all the time, making it almost unplayable. In playing this game for 2 days it has already froze more than all other games together. Also taking almost a minute to load be a gm mode is ridiculous. They also dropped the ball on lots of commentating. They came could've been great, but instead it seems like they rushed it out and are ending up with a lot of dissapointed gamers.

Every year this EA release is garbage. Thanks to everyone that buys EA sports titles. There are now no good hockey games on the market.

The game play is essentially the same as NHL 11, so it's solid. Unfortunately alot of the glitches are the same as NHL 11 also. The issues with boost slots not unlocking in Be A Pro is still there. The HUT server disconnects constantly, and awards you a loss every time it does. And the online mode still features the glitchers and exploiters who take that same shot over and over all game long. The addition of the Legends players is a nice add-on but not really worth it if you have last years version.
