NHL 14 Review

  • Summary: Whether you like the sport or not, NHL 14 offers plenty to veterans and entry-level players alike. Ice hockey is not as complex and intimidating as the playbook-driven world of the NFL, or the stats-obsessed MLB.

NHL 14 Review

GamerNode
8 October 2013
  • Summary: NHL 14 makes some positive strides for the franchise, but a next-gen entry needs to revamp its sub-par visual and audio presentations.
  • Pros: Collision physics make for bigger, better hits and realistic bumps, Fights are strategic, visceral, and fun, Live the Life vastly improves pro mode
  • Cons: Broadcast presentation seriously lacking and dull, Online GM Mode menus still take forever to load

Expert Review

PSX Extreme
23 September 2013
  • Excerpt: There’s nothing glaringly wrong with EA’s suite of sports games this year. In fact, for the most part, they’re as solid as ever. It’s just that it seems as if the developers are sort of limping into the new generation, and they’re having difficulty keeping the annual releases fresh.

NHL '14 (PS3) - Review

VGChartz
17 September 2013
  • Excerpt: It was 20 years ago that NHL '94 revolutionized hockey gaming. I was just 4 years old at the time, and enjoyed hours of scoring cheap goals by spinning in circles down the ice. To celebrate the franchise's 20th birthday, EA has packed NHL '14 to the brim with gameplay modes and features galore but,...

Game Over Online
17 September 2013
  • Excerpt: It’s hard to be a hockey fan in this day and age. Casual fans have been alienated by confusing and contradictory rhetoric coming from both sides of the lockout debacle that has diminished the popularity of the sport in this country.

6 September 2013
  • Excerpt: The NHL has seen some drastic changes since the end of the lockout. A conference re-alignment sees the Red Wings head east to resume old rivalries, the Dallas Stars have a new look, and Sidney Crosby is down eight or nine teeth.
  • Pros: Harder, faster and more aggressive hits, Better balancing between defence and offensive, Live The Life is wacky but strangely absorbing
  • Cons: NHL '94 mode reeks of compromise, Still some odd AI glitches and behaviour, THAT commentary

  • Excerpt: 20 years on and NHL 94 is still considered one of the best sporting games of all time, and many consider it to be the definitive representation of ice hockey in video games. Despite numerous graphical improvements, more complex control schemes, colour commentary and a host of detailed play modes,...

Review: NHL 14

Press-Start
28 October 2013
  • Conclusion: Instead of listing every feature that is present in this year’s entry for the NHL I have instead opted to describe the new features available for gamers this time around. The biggest and most appealing features would no doubt have to be the one touch deke system and the introduction of “Live the...
