Summary: If I had rated this product when it first came out it would be 4-5 stars, as they had the skating engine working great where users could not simply skate in circles waiting for the defender to be a step behind, but then with one of the patches, they moved everything back to the old skate dancing...
Eh, just ok... Simulation times in GM mode are unacceptable

Summary: The gameplay is fine, the skating is very smooth, and control seems realistic, however the checking animations are very choppy and not fluid at all.... The big issue is simulating in GM mode, which is like the only mode I play to build a dynasty...
Summary: Let's start at the beginning. I'm a teenager who unfortunately has never played ice hockey but is an avid fan. I have played NHL 11 and NHL 12 for hours on end, but I just can't seem to rack up the minutes on NHL 13. I have a PS3, and it's about 3 years old. It should run fine, right? Wrong.
Summary: The play,of the game was pretty good, gm mode sucks and even season mode sucks because when your playing its glitches and the play will slow down then speed up and the players are as responsive. Not sure if it's just from the supplier that there like that but ya my copy sucks.
Summary: This game has the worst passing engine in the series. Non existent scrums in front of the goalie for loose pucks. Non existent one timers, and the gameplay perspective hasn't advanced since NHL 94.
Summary: Was soll ich sagen,wie von EA seit NHL 12 gewohnt, schmiert das Spiel auch wieder regelmäßig ab! Wenn man seine eigenen Songs abspielen will,als Intro,bei Tor oder Strafe,..gute Idee,leider hat man teilweise dann gar keinen Ton mehr,nur noch die Skate- und Puckgeräusche!!!
