Summary: Upgraded from NHL 12 and regretting that I did. This is by far one of the worst sports games I have ever played. I would try to get my money back if I could. The game is completely unrealistic. The cpu scores the most ridiculous goals and is almost impossible to stop on any level. Checking them only results in an interference penalty and often times, a game ejection.
Momentum Sliders Needed and more Obnoxious problems

Summary: There really needs to be a Momentum Slider that you can turn off in this game. The Momentum Boosts have taken me to the land of swearing obscenities way more than my cheers. If I get a good lead, automatically all my players start playing cruddy and passing horrible. Turning off Pass Assist has helped some, but still if the computer decides it is going to score it does at will. Why can't the game just play at a level and stick there win or lose.
Summary: NHL 13 ...14 is a fighting game ..."hockey" game from EA Sports. But it's not a very good one. This year introduces a new fighting engine and they sure are eager to show it off. Big hit? Fight. Injury? Fight. Push the star player? Fight. Someone touches the goalie, even if it's incidental? Fight. Have the play stop while you're winding up for your shot and let it go after the play has stopped? Fight. Touch the star player? Fight.
Cons: Not representive of hockey, 3-12 fights per game, issues left over from NHL 12 and 13, lack of changes from 13
