I dont understand why this got poor reviews. I am a die hard hockey fan and this game is very close to the real thing. Winter Classic mode is cool and Be a GM definitely improved. Great graphics and realistic game play. The skating is dramatically improved too. There are only 2 problems with this game: Inaccurate arena goal horns and claude giroix on the cover!!
Good with one flaw
This game is great i love the skating and online the only problem is that offline if you have the puck down one in your opponents zone ea screws you and wont give you the puck but this is an overall good game
Still love this game
This game is really fun! I still play this game almost every day. I'm not even a huge hockey fan but I love playing this game. The fighting system could be better, but the rest of the game play is surprisingly smooth. This game is seriously underrated and it's worth a try, especially after the price drop.
if it was more realistic it would be top notch!
it is an awsome game suited for kids who like action! i wasn't a hockey fan untill i started playing this game! I say the NHL series should go forward with their awesome work!
Reall good EA has done themselves very well.
I give this game a 9 overall, this is a solid hockey game. The graphics are really good and the gameplay is better than NHL 12. I thought it was cool how EA integrates the raising of the banner for the Stanley Cup Champions in there hockey games, maybe madden or nba would look at the NHL series and see that and integrate that feature. All in all though I would have to say I was impressed with the overall quality of this game,,, It makes me look forward to NHL 14 and beyond.....
Can't wait till NHL14 comes out........................................................................
The worst NHL game I have ever played
The hits are so unrealistic, the music is bad, it glitches way too much, goals are to impossible, laggy, boring, game modes not fun. These are just some of many characteristics of NHL 13.
Nhl 13 is amazing i recommend it to everyone its a must buy ! The graphics are absolutely unreal. Go Maple Leafs !!!
Amazing anyone one can play and have fun
This game i love it i bought it like 3 months ago. The graphics and all the dekeing and skating motions make it like real, if they could do anything better make it more like a actual hockey grind make it harder to control the puck. sometimes i feel like their is to much space to carry the puck. But the doesn't mean the other teams is like an all star at scoring goals. just a real nhl grind. But i do think u should get the demo before purchase.
Ruin of a Game
Well, they took a lot of the fun out of the game. From skating right over the puck like it was not there to controls feeling to slow. I loved 2012 was really fun online now it feels like i am playing at a slow pace. Im sorry i think EA has made a great game into an okay game. Many things need to change for this game to make it better like the stupid slamming into the goal an knocking him out of position an the random skating over the puck an not getting it. So this game can be fun but a lot of dumb things just ruin it for me.
