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.
