Summary: The game is fun, the gameplay rules, but every other game freezes in the middle of it. I got this as a gift because someone wanted to save money from NHL 13, but don't waste your money. Honestly, it freezes like crazy. Try your luck with a few extra bucks for 13.
Summary: This is a great game when it came out, can't deny that. What do you mean Platform Unknown? Is it the game that you posted the box of? You could at least look at the box and list it in the proper platform, or is that your way to get it to show on everyone's PC who searches for this game? Maybe make a mistake and buy your listing? Yea, people are that impulsuve, but not all of us. So, what does one do if they want to buy it?
Summary: This game is as glitchy as the other reviewers claim. I've tried it around 25 times and have actually completed three games. if it doesn't lock up when loading a profile, you can make it through some of the game before it just plain locks up. very disappointed.
Summary: I have been playing this game since NHL '10 after taking a few years off since NHL 94. EA Sports should invest some time into actually making the AI smarter. This game is fun on lower difficulty levels, then when you get to more difficult modes, instead of making the AI smarter, the computer just starts scoring goals from center ice and skating three times as fast as you. That is not a higher difficulty, that is literal cheating and not enjoyable at all.
Summary: I had the X360 version, my X360 died as they are prone to do. Loved this game so repurchased it for PS3. Big mistake, I can't make it through a single game without it freezing, and EA support is completely unhelpful. Before you purchase, just peruse this EA support forum and decide for yourself: [...
Summary: This years EA Sports NHL title falls extremely short of being anything special. Aside from the fact they added in the Winter Classic and goalie fights the game pretty much remains unchanged from NHL 11. The EA Sports team that works on this game must not watch hockey because what they claim to be real hockey in the game wouldn't even pass for a pee-wee hockey game in terms of excitement.
Summary: The game is awesome first of all and its one of the best sports game out at the moment. There is one Major Problem though. They didn't beta test this game at all. It Freezes all the time! Don't follow the warning and you will be disappointed like I am now.
Summary: NHL 12 is a great game, it is alot of fun and a big improvement over the last NHL game I bought, NHL 10. It feels a lot more like real hockey and is a joy to play. The reason that it is rated one star is the freezing problem. It will randomly freeze and I will loose whatever I had been doing. I dont see a reason that EA had to release such a glitchy game and I dont know why they still have not fixed it months after its release. Do not buy this game. Wait until NHL 13.
Freezes 1 out of every 4 games... Don't Waste Your Money

Summary: I hate that I have to type this and I hate that I have to throw this game right in the garbage. The NHL games are a must purchase for me each year (until now). Literally one out of every four games you play freeze on you and you have to power down your entire PS3 from the console itself. It doesn't matter if you are online or offline. Sometimes its literally after you play the entire game and exit out of it that it locks up and you have to start the game all over.
