Overall i liked the game,has good graphics and good game play. I usually play be a pro mode and i like most aspects of it. They improved on some things but their is still a couple big flaws. The major one is if your player doesnt break NHL records or score 5 or 6 goals every couple games,then you will be sent down the lower lines or even to the minors. Even if your leading your team in scoring.
Huge dissapointment compared to NHL 10.
NHL 11 can be summed up by one word: "Boring". NHL 11 is simply repetitive gameplay (which you get from most sports simulators) with a few new game modes hardley worth the money. The game is fun the day you get it, but that's about all you get. The game seems to pull off a miracle just in time to give you a cheap loss. I probably turned off my console in a fit a rage more times on NHL 11 then any other game. Loading times are ridiculous, as you would expect. The dialogue of the announcers are simply recycled every year, and it's pretty distracting at times. NHL 10 was the best hockey game yet. This one is just dissapointing. Not terrible, and certainly not as bad as say a Madden game, but dissapointing. I havn't even been able to muster up the will to buy NHL 12. Or 13 which will come out this year.
EA puts out another great hockey game.
played NHL 11 & NHL 12 i don't hate either and i bought NHL 11 around last October and have put in well over 800 hours into it.
the game is deep it has so many modes and things to do you could get your 25 bucks out of it in less than a week.
the big three modes are the be a pro mode, you can choose between being a NHL pro and playing or creating your pro and starting in the junior cup then get drafted by an NHL team.
hockey's ultimate team allows you to build your team based on who and what cards you get from the in game store, the pucks are earned by playing games and also by selling cards on the trading market.
finally the online mode is ea sports hockey league, where you create your player and join or create your own team and play other gamers for monthly playoffs as of 4-3-12 the number of people on the eashl has dropped quite a bit but their are still a good number of players on most of the time late at night 8pm-3am (eastern time)
IF YOU BUY THIS GAME USED YOU WILL NEED TO BUY THE ONLINE PASS TO ACCESS THE EASHL AND THE ULTIMATE TEAM MODES REMEMBER THIS WHEN BUYING.
not as good as nhl 10
this game is not as good as nhl 10. the gameplay sucks also the controls are difficult to adjust to eventhough they are pretty much the same as nhl 10. I don't recommend it.
.This game is a really good game. There's just two problems I have with it. One is that it's really hard to score a goal. I dont think its me because ive been good at every other NHL game that ive played. But almost every shot I take is saved by the goalie. And you may think "yeah thats what a goalie does". Well ive made shots that the goalie wasnt even looking and I knew i would score, but then the goalie just reaches over and grabs it. Also the other team makes a lot of shots when my goalie is looking straight at the puck and then just lets it in. But other than the goalies, the other problem i have is the graphics aren't the best, especially during a relay. I mean how many times has a puck flew off of someones stick when they didnt even move. Thats right, none. But if you dont focus on the replays or the goalie level its a great game. I still love playing it and I also love shootout mode and goalie moade. This whole game is so much fun and I reccomend it to anyone
EA needs to go back to basics because this game is horrible. Goalie and defencemen reaction times are WAY OFF I mean goalie standing out in left field thats how off it is. It got me so mad when the goalie and players wouldn't react to MY commands nearly busted my new XBOX360... I must say AVOID THIS GAME AT ALL COSTS.
its amazing i would buy this instead of 12
this game fits people that like to play in groups. but you can play alone on be a pro mode i like it better then nhl 12 but other people have a differnt thoughts if i was you i would buy this game.
This game is fantastic! From shootouts to fights this game will have you on the edge of your seat!
This is a great game for anyone even if u dont like hockey. The gameplay is great and I think the creators really made it like ur in the game and also its so realistic. The graphics and announcers are really great to. They no wat there talking about and dont say the same thing every 2 minutes. My favorite part about this game is the new ultimate team. U get to manage ur team like ur the real owner with managing the team. But the even more fun part is playing as ur team battles online or the computer. This game could b for hardcore gamers online or people who just wanna pla for fun. I would definately recoomend this
Great game. I bought it because i had nhl 08 and this one was like $27 so i bought it and its a great game. be a pro mode is awsome. when you first start up you get to create your own pro and it gives you a tutorial on how to play. the only downside to this game is that you have to pay to play online but you get a free 7 day free trial no matter what. if you buy the game new you get a free online pass (online pass is what you need to play online) and if you bought it used and the code was used then you have to pay for the online pass after your trial ends but the online pass is only like $10 so its not too bad. great game, i'd definetly recommend it if you love hockey.
