DO NOT BUY - Worst NHL Game in series history
Upgraded from NHL 12 and regretting that I did. This is by far one of the worst sports games I have ever played. I would try to get my money back if I could. The game is completely unrealistic. The cpu scores the most ridiculous goals and is almost impossible to stop on any level. Checking them only results in an interference penalty and often times, a game ejection. I had my best player ejected two times and when I traded for a better player then him, the new player was ejected in his first game for me. It is nearly impossible to complete a pass in the oppositions side of the ice, playing around the boards is nearly impossible as they always come away with the puck. Even if you hit them, they get up and get the puck before your skater even has a chance to get the puck. Making trades in Be a GM mode is ridiculous as they decline every trade that doesn't involve you giving up many skilled players for one. Between the impossible game play and the terrible "Be a GM" mode, you couldn't pay me to play this game again. Do not waste your money.
1st NHL Game I ever bought...And. It's. PERFECT!!!
I never bought an NHL game before because I was intimidated by all the button mashing involved. Please note: I am a HARDCORE gamer. I am disabled, so all I do is take care of my daughter, and pretty much play games. This game is AWESOME!!!!! The graphics are true,in the game-play you are able to customize to your liking, and the music kicks you know what!!!! I will be playing this game for a long time (along with GTA5). Go PENS!!!!!!
The best one yet
This is the best NHL game yet. Good job EA Sports. The only thing I don't like is the cover. Sorry. I am a Flyers fan. Expected right. NHL 13 was fine. (Cover). Anyway, this has a lot more fighting in it so it is more like real hockey. The online shoot outs are really cool. So now you play your friends or somebody you don't even know. It doesn't matter. I really enjoy those. So it is like bring it on boys. Lol. Great game.
NHL 14 Will Be Good.
Can't wait. NHL 13 was a very fun & enjoyable game. NHL 14 will be better. Can't wait. I can't wait to check the Snot out of players in 14!! Until then, I'll be jamming out on NHL 13 until its release.
This must be better than NHL 13
NHL 13 was good But NHL 14 should be outstanding with Live The Life mode replacing Be a Pro !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
NHL 14= Awesome
I've been playing hockey games since it was on the PS2. The one thing you want to know is? is it worth buying?. I've been looking at the trailers on EA and no lie guys EVERY thing looks improved in everyway. If your looking for the typical Be a Pro mode and Be a GM keep on playing NHL 13. NHL 14 has now the new live the life mode no lie it's possible the best part of the game mode, Finally the game gives us interviews, Fan likeability, and now GM's can tell us you suck i'am trading you if you don't play well lol. Anyways don't watch the trailers here. You want to know more about the game look up EA Sports and you will find even more cool stuff. Just saying this is worth the 65$!.. GO Kings GO!
This game is going to be GREAT I can already tell!I hope it has great online as it will have offline gameplay!Also excited for the NHL@94 Anniversary mode because that is gonna be BOMB!!!!
Is what it is
Love the new enforcer engine and the smoothness of the game. Look forward to checking out the new "live the life". However, being a checker and love the hitting, playing the demo all I get done doing is fighting. It gets to the point of be ridiculous. Love the concept it's just to much, there's no limit. Also I have noticed people don't step in for their star players. I have fought with Towes, Hall, and other people I have never seen fight in real life and they usually just get crushed. Love the fighting it just gets to much and I can't enjoy the hockey aspect.
Awesome game. New fights are ridiculous, very fun. Fast pace. great game play. And has nhl 94 on top of it all.
This is a bad game.
It feels like everything except for the fighting is the same. The cancel pass button is the same button as the new deking button so every time i cancel a pass, i end up doing a deke and lose the puck most of the time. The fighting is more like a boxing game and it happens way too much when you play online. The game is a step backwards from last year.
