Love the game. Lots of improvements from NHL10 (last one I picked up).
However, the hits engine is way off. You see guys flying across the ice, smashing head first into the boards, but getting up like nothing's wrong. I like the idea of sticks being broken or helmet's flying, but once they're on the ice, they have zero impact on the game. You can skate right through them without a delay.
That's the only negative I can add. I'm mainly a Create A Pro player, so I can't really comment on the rest of the game. Haven't touched it.
i have been patiently waiting for this game to come out.. and im not saying its a bad game.. but it also isn't a great game.. I have owned every NHL game EA sports has offered since 92. before this came out i was playing nhl 10. and for some reason that was by far the best nhl game ever made..in nhl 13 the physics is cool, graphics hasn't changed since i dont even know when?.. gameplay is pretty slow. i understand they try to make it as realistic as possible but its still a video game and the gameplay should still be quick and fun. i like the game overall. I was just hoping for a bigger upgrade.
