This Game Shows How Much EA Sports Doesn't CarePlaying the EA Sports NHL series for years, I had much excitement for the game to be released on new generation consoles. Researching games before purchasing them is a must as they are expensive for the average college student. Seeing the bad reviews with optimism of patches to add in content brought my faith up and I finally went out and bought the game. This game was a huge disappointment, lacking everything I expected and used to play for. Being able to create your own team with so many options and then play against others with your friends no longer exists. This was so vital to many NHLers and they just did away with it. You can't even be the goalie! They could've easily just had an on/off switch. Creating a skater also gets rated very poorly for customization. You can no longer make your character look unique by editing their faces as you were able to in the past. I couldn't even put the space in my last name. This game represents EA Sports and their lack of commitment to make a decent game for their devoted customers. It is a disgrace to anyone who has been purchasing the game year after year. I've posted several comments to their online site, never receiving a response from them. Many patches have come and have barely added anything. It seems as if all EA cares about anymore is selling the next game and moving on. They presented to us amazing physics in the teaser and that is all we got.

Terrible on 360This years NHL on the 360 needed way more dedication than it got. I really don't recommend this unless you only have 360!

Great time, great gameI find this game to be just great. The playing is strong compared to other sports games for Xbox, maybe the smoothest, best and most accurate to real time. Lots of others give it negative comments but those are people who seem to want a super-fast nonrealistic game or have expectations that no computer game can deliver for another 20 years. And the price has come down $20 for a new game so enjoy. It's a fantastic game.

Overall funI will agree that visually the game looks like NHL 14. However, people need to realize that hardware limitations keeps it from advancing in that department. I own a 360 only to play NHL. I played 09 for the PC until 13 and couldn't stand the outdated graphics anymore on the PC despite being heavily modded. I also couldn't stand John Hughes doing commentary anymore.
I do feel this game has a much better feel to it compared to 14. The puck seems to have a more realistic bounce and feel to it. For example, when shooting the puck wide and off the glass it has that unpredictable bounce effect to it mimicking real life. Goalies do seem much more alive as well thanks to player collisions, especially when crashing the net and bumping the goalie. Teammates can even bump their own goalie accidentally, knocking them over and leaving the net wide open for a brief second.
The puck physics are great as well. Better dump ins, deflections give it a much better realistic feel. I shot a puck off the glass and it took a weird bounce right in front of the net across the goal mouth.
Commentary is a welcome change. Being a Flyers fan, I have always loved hearing Doc call games since he was with the Flyers years ago. While some things quickly become repetitive, I believe it was a much needed change. The excitement in his voice isn't quite captured like that of his live games but does the job well.
So, while on the surface, yes, NHL 15 does look like a 14 clone. However, the real gem in my opinion is hidden underneath the surface. Look past the cloned menus and graphics and I believe you might find a game worthy of a try. While I do wish EA would bring back their sports games on PC, playing NHL 15 on the 360 is giving me my NHL fix for now.

AwfulEA literally released the same exact game as NHL 14. I had played NHL 15 on the XBOX ONE, and loved it, so I figured I would get it for my XBOX 360. Big mistake. Not a single feature of this game is different aside from the new commentators. EA didn't even bother to make a new intro. Everything is the same. Bottom line, DONT BUY THIS GAME. IT IS THE SAME THING AS NHL 14.

It is just like NHL 14, but with better graphics.Very good overall game, fun to play with friends and family. The announcers such as Doc sound so real.
