Product Details:

Be the next legend in hockey with NHL 12. As the sport's next superstar, earn every shift on the ice with stellar play, big hits, and spectacular goals and prove you have the toughness and skill to lead your team to the Stanley Cup®. Take to the ice in all-new interactive environments where bone-crushing hits, glass-shattering collisions, and bruising checks along the boards are always part of the action. Experience the intensity, speed, and physicality of authentic NHL hockey with NHL 12.

  • Full-Contact Physics Engine - From shattered glass and flying helmets to knocking players over the boards and into the bench, experience the skill and aggression of hockey like never before. Crash the crease too hard and you'll knock the net off and send the goalie flying.
  • Be a Pro Revamped - Playing as your created pro, earn every shift on the ice with stellar play, big hits, and spectacular goals. Simulate the action to your next shift so you're always on the ice as you play out your entire career gunning for the Stanley Cup.
  • All-New Dynamic Goalie Interaction - Stonewall your opponents with awe-inspiring desperation saves from your goalie as he covers every possible angle and works through screens and flying players in front of the net.
  • Goalies Drop the Gloves - When the action boils over, send a message by leaving the net, dropping the gloves, and trading punches with a heated rival during fights.
  • Play in the Winter Classic - The NHL package jumps to life with the addition of the NHL Winter Classic, the league's premier outdoor hockey event on New Year's Day. Play under snowfall at Pittsburgh's Heinz Field as 70,000+ rabid fans provide inspiration by cheering you on while donning Winter Classic gear.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Game, But Some Flaws I love this game I had it forever and people still play it in 2014! Online gameplay is awesome, I don't find it OP in anyway. The only flaws I find is the fact when you fight, the no one is on the benches it looks weird as if they all glitched out, but it doesn't bother me. The only other flaw is some of the calls on goaltender interference are so stupid, I don't touch the goalie and I get a foul. Other then that, I love the game.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Trash. I got this game in hopes of upgrading my very old NHL 2k5. I never should have bothered. After trying this unplayable piece of regurgitated EA garbage a few games into my season, I booted my ORIGINAL Xbox back up and stuck with 2k5. That's pretty sad. The mechanics of this game are utterly terrible, the controls are a completely unintuitive mess, and the frame rate is about a whopping 15fps. Body checking feels like you're all 4 year olds bumping into each other, puck control is about as effective as wizzing into a wall socket, and the whole game relies on pinning on the boards for 60 minutes. Passing is horrid, one timers are nearly impossible, your skaters move at senior citizen speeds (even when you supposedly can make them "hustle"), and overall it makes me want to rip my hair out instead of delve deeper into my game. Do yourself a favor and stay far away from EA garbage and hope ESPN breaks back into the monopoly on terrible sports games.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from really good awesome modes like ea sports hockey league drop in games. But one problem I can't stand is goal glitchers which is a serious issue

Rated 4 out of 5 by from OKAYYYYYYY? I think the goalies need to improve PRONTO, for example the cross-crease is terrible. they need to add a college experience to nhl 12. and before a be a pro they should add a shoot around before the game like have a couple of pucks and do warm-ups

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Better than 13 This game is amazing. It is a lot more realistic than 13. I played the demo for 7 hour is it was so good. I am planning on getting as soon as 13 releases.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Game, Totally worth it I've had this game since Christmas, and I have not gotten tired of it at all. At every corner there is a surprise, or something that adds to the competitiveness of the game. The graphics are incredible, the game play is great, and all the game modes are good. The only thing is that A.I. system isn't that smart, so that might make you mad. The trading system doesn't isn't always good, as in you'll get low balled and have to overpay for players like Sean Avery (and it especially gets annoying when he's 38 and you need a player like him but he insists on 3 million over one year). Anyway, that is really the only problem I've had with the game, and you will not be let down!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from good but just like every other one This is a really fun game especially if you like hockey but its kind of like all of the other ones which is the problem hopefully one of the upcoming NHL's will bring something new to it like first person gameplay or something like that
