NHL 12 Review

  • Excerpt: When you’re placed in a position that requires you to release a new title in your series every year, it’s difficult to consistently improve on the same premise in terms of both quality and enjoyment. This is especially true when it comes to annual sports titles, where it becomes a trend for a franchise simulating a certain sport to hit a high point, then fail to meet that bar the following year or years.
  • Pros: Most authentic and realistic hockey title in years, Additions to game modes add even more depth and variety, Winter Classic is captured perfectly
  • Cons: Legends feel a tad underutilized, Graphics and commentary haven't gotten much of an upgrade

NHL 12 (PS3) - Review

VGChartz
19 September 2011
  • Excerpt: Beyond a shadow of a doubt this has been one of the worst summers ever for the hockey community. Over forty players, coaches and staff have lost their lives in this tragic off-season, a mark that will surely be felt in the tight-knit hockey world for years to come. So before I get into this review I would like to invite all our readers to spare a thought for Derek Boogaard, Rick Rypien, Wade Belak and the entire Lokomotiv Yaroslavl KHL team, all of whom had their lives...

  • Summary: A terrific hockey game with improved A.I. and physics, NHL 12 reminds us why the ice is so much fun. While some new additions fall a bit flat, it's another extremely solid entry in an enjoyable franchise.
  • Pros: The improved A.I., The enhanced physics engine, The overall strong presentation
  • Cons: Legends integration is stale, Be a GM needs an upgrade, Be a Pro camera is just fair

  • Excerpt: Hockey's made some big strides since the NHL was almost killed by the lockout of 2005. With TV ratings steadily climbing and water cooler chatter building, the sport is on the verge of regaining the prestige it enjoyed in the '90s. EA's NHL franchise has followed suit--stepping up its game year after year culminating in last year's stellar release. EA is counting on significant additions to its modes and gameplay to tip the ice in NHL 12's favor.

  • Conclusion: Concept: Round out the gameplay with net jostling and tweaked player physics Graphics: More diverse goalie animations help open up the net Sound: The Gary Thorne/Bill Clement commentary duo sounds largely the same, though they do call out player streaks and slumps now Playability: The addition of the net jostling makes this the most well-rounded NHL title yet Entertainment: NHL 12 skates like an all-star in the EASHL and Be A Pro modes, but its Be A GM mode is a mess...

  • Summary: Lace up your skates; it's time for another hockey season!
  • Pros: Countless subtle but impressive gameplay improvements; stellar visuals; increased visual detail; new collision physics; fixes most if not all NHL 11 annoyances.
  • Cons: Still doesn't cater to casual fans; imports very little from NHL 11; disconnected Be-A-Pro bench time simulation; annoying online interaction with server during offline play; increased embedded advertising.
