Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great hockey game I loved that this is a fantastic game that is very inexpensive. The gameplay is smooth and a ton of fun to play. I love the create a team feature and how, like other EA Sports games, you can put the created teams into other game modes. Honestly, unless the scoring display is changed, I personally wouldn't upgrade to a more recent version of this game for PS3. Very good game that is worth your time. Happy gaming :)

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Hockey Game NHL 12's be a legend mode was fun but it was also time consuming and difficult in order to unlock the players in legend mode. All in all though this is a great hockey game!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Fan of the series, but this is my least favorite Two major gripes. In an effort to make the game more realistic, they force you to sit out a shift every so often and watch. I prefer no line changes and always having my created player on the ice at all times but turning off line changes is no longer an option. Sure, it is more realistic, but less fun. Stinks having to sit out either a powerplay or a penalty kill and watch the action unfold. Secondly, the AI teammates are awful. Even if you are wide-open and breaking down the ice they won't pass it to you, and to get them to you have to "request" a pass which causes your player to tap his stick on the ice, wasting valuable time. Lame. I think i'll go back to the "less realistic" NHL 10, where my player can stay on the ice, actually get passed to, and score 5-10 goals a game. Isn't that supposed to be the point of the game, to be un-realistically that much better than the rest of the NHL? Glad I bought this game used, and didn't spend a full $60

Rated 4 out of 5 by from A Solid, Fun Sports Game I am not much of a sports gamer, so I only get one game for each sport about every 5 years (Except for madden, I get that one every other year.) The last NHL game that I got was 06, so to me this is laughably a major improvement. The game play mechanics are pretty good, with a few glitches here and there, but it is solid and definitely still playable. The graphics weren't top-notch, which surprises me since EA is going crazy over graphics now. The sounds were average, more sound glitches here and there, such as shooting the puck was sometimes a complete second late. The lasting appeal was a total 10, because it is always addicting to play through a season to see how well you play the game. I gave this game an 8 because of its lasting appeal and game play, it is a good solid hockey game and I recommend this to any casual and/or sports gamer.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from good but not flawless I love this game but it has two problems, 1. sometimes in a fight you could fight with one person but be another one like i was fight with tim thomas once and he was wearing a marchand jersay. also i lost tim thomas and i cant find him in nhl 12 i checked if any team had him but they don't also he is not under my contracts or a free agent and he did not retire.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from AMAZING!!!!! GETS BETTER EVERY YEAR! I love it soo much it is a must buy for an NHL-Er!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! there are soo many new modes its amazing!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Better and Better Every Year You may think that buying the same game every year is pointless, but the NHL series continues to have major changes made that greatly alter the gaming community's experience. With the addition of new game modes, goalie fights, the WInter Classic, and the return of the Ultimate Hockey League and the EA Sports Hockey League, NHL 12 is a spectacular game. My only issue is that the soundtrack is somewhat limited.
