2 September 2013
  • Summary: It would be facile to say NHL 12 just skated by, sticking to the winning formula established in franchise’s resurgence. Still, as is occasionally the case with sports games that don’t need radical fixing, last year’s iteration was one of tweaks and balancing: welcomed AI fixes, improvements made to...

VGChartz

  • Excerpt: With the NHL’s fourth work stoppage in less than 20 years now in full effect, hockey fans now have to look elsewhere for their fill of the sport they love. Thankfully, for those of us who don’t feel like cheering on teams from smaller leagues (Go Glens Go!

1 October 2012
  • Excerpt: The NHL series has been around for over two decades and has garnered plenty of ‘Sports Game of the Year’ awards during this period.

  • Excerpt: Your controller should beware, because things are going to get a little nasty. Thanks to the introduction of True Performance Skating in NHL 13, most of the tactics for success you’ve used the past few years won’t work anymore.
  • Pros: Realistic skating physics, Smarter, better goaltenders, A legitimate online league mode
  • Cons: Slow-loading menus, Uninspiring Be A Pro, Stale commentary and fighting

  • Conclusion: Concept: Reinvigorate a stalled sports franchise with a great new skating mechanic and recalibrate the franchise mode Graphics: The attention to detail with player faces makes this the best-looking NHL game to date Sound: Gary Thorne and Bill Clement either need to be replaced or get back into the...

PlayStation Universe
11 September 2012
  • Summary: NHL 14 takes the ice in a new way, and it brings with it retro and new players alike with NHL 94 Mode. Even if the menus are slow and the AI is stupid, 14 is still a strong outing that any hardcore fan, as well as the retro and new, will gladly pick up and play.
  • Pros: NHL 94 coaxes new and retro players to the ice, Live the Life digs deeper into player's lifestyle, Fighting is a right, not a privilege
  • Cons: Slow menus bog down RPG-like experience, AI is shallow and unsophisticated, Collision Engine simplifies gameplay

  • Summary: Even an uncertain 2012-2013 hockey season cannot put the breaks on EA Sports's latest entry in the NHL game series. If hockey fans do end up with a lot of time on their hands, EA picked the right year to come out with an NHL title worthy of longer than normal play sessions and deeper general manager...
  • Pros: Overhauled skating physics, Deeper character customization, GM mode goes online
  • Cons: Same commentary sound files from last year, Generic soundtrack and arena music, Ambitious GM Connected mode runs slowly

GameSpot
11 September 2012
  • Summary: NHL 13 might be the only game in town this year for hockey fans. The threat of an imminent lockout leaves the latest addition to the long-lived EA Sports franchise as the lone outlet for puckheads through what could be a long and lonely fall and winter of listening to talk about salary caps and...
  • Pros: Realistic new physics add tremendous skating authenticity, Smart new player AI, Very challenging gameplay, Ambitious GM Connected mode has promise
  • Cons: Smart AI is sometimes too smart, Still some rating quirks

18 October 2012
  • Conclusion: GM Connected offers online league play for the RPG style Be A GM while Be A Pro and Be A Legend return again as the immersive, but somewhat lacking, career modes. Be A Pro, if anything has become harder to navigate with less customisation options.
