NHL 12

  • Excerpt: It is another year, and time for another professional hockey game - NHL 12. EA Sports has made some interesting tweaks to the franchise this year. After installation, and updates NHL 12 started me in the Winter Classic. Now I don't watch hockey on TV so I did not know they were playing games outside in major stadiums. This is an excellent way to start this game. It got me pumped up to go and play some hockey. That presentation twist took me off guard, but I liked it.

  • Excerpt: Hockey fans were very pleased with NHL 11 last year. It was an appropriately-paced game with plenty of features, smooth gameplay, and a nice feel to it. One year ago, I gave it a 90% rating in my review ( http://www.game-over.com/reviews/xbox360/NHL_11.html ). Since taking over the virtual hockey crown from 2K Sports in 2009, EA’s offerings have only gotten better. With NHL 12 , EA has not taken drastic measures to change the experience.

  • Excerpt: Hockey is a big part of my life right now. I work from home and live with my girlfriend, so I don’t really get out of the house much. The one thing that does get me out every week is playing defense for my hockey team, the Crystal Lake Slasher, every Monday and Thursday night. As a defenseman I have to understand the game at a relatively high level. I have to know positioning, how plays develop, how to break out of our zone, how to keep the puck in their zone, etc.

  • Excerpt: First, the game looks very similar to last year’s. In many cases, given only the ice and skaters, the two would be indistinguishable. There certainly have been additions and tweaks to the presentation aspect of the game, such as details you would see in a TV broadcast, but overall, it’s largely unchanged.

  • Conclusion: Fans of the NHL series are unlikely to skip an entry, for any number of reasons, including the roster and uniform updates, the online play or the simple lack of competition, and there's no reason to start now, as this version's tweaks offer a genuine improvement over last year's well-regarded title, once you adjust to the more realistic controls (either through practice or tuner adjustments.

  • Conclusion: You could make an argument that, with DLC nowadays, maybe the $60 annual sports games are overkill, unnecessary. NHL 12 is further proof that, for as complete as NHL 11 was considered, there seems to always be new, significant, quality additions that can be made from one year to the next.

  • Excerpt: It’s getting to that time of the year again and you can you feel it. Kids are heading back to school, the days are getting shorter, and the start of NHL hockey training camps is just around the corner. Most fans here in Vancouver are still shocked and disappointed by the game 7 loss against Boston. Of course this time of the year also means that EA Sports is readying their new hockey game NHL 12.
