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.

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.

GamesRadar
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,...

  • Conclusion: Grossansicht Technisch spielt NHL 14 auf nahezu identischem Niveau wie NHL 13 und offenbart die gleichen Stärken und Schwächen: So ist die Grafik generell sehr schön anzusehen und die Spieler strotzen vor Details. Manchmal wirken die Animationen aber etwas hölzern.

Stagnerande hockeyspel i ”NHL 14”

svd.se
3 October 2013
  • Excerpt: Med lagom många tillfräschningar, nya spellägen och funktioner har ”NHL”-spelen lyckats hålla ishockeyn relevant och rolig trots att det varje år släpps ett nytt spel i serien. Men ”NHL 14” visar tyvärr på en stagnerande tendens.

Digitale Generation
30 September 2013
  • Conclusion: NHL 14 ist ein gutes Spiel – auch wenn es kaum etwas wirklich grundlegend anders oder neu macht. Durch viele Detailverbesserungen macht es dafür einen weiteren Schritt in Richtung Realismus. Leider wurden dabei einige alte KI-Schwächen immer noch nicht ausgemerzt.

26 September 2013
  • Summary: Ik bevind me in de luxepositie dat ik elke game die betrekking heeft tot Amerikaanse sporten mag beoordelen. Ik ben fan van deze sporten en natuurlijk ook van de games. Nog niet zo lang geleden mocht ik Madden NFL 25 beoordelen en nu is het de beurt aan NHL 14.
  • Pros: Gevechten zijn tof.., Snelle en spectaculaire gameplay, Hits zijn harder dankzij nieuwe physics
  • Cons: ...maar zijn teveel aanwezig, One Touch Dekes te casual, Weinig vernieuwingen die er toe doen
