Same stuff different name!

  • Summary: I think EA Sports needs to consult some real NHL hockey players on how to program players on the AI and gameplay engine. Plus the only difference between this edition in the franchise from past ones is a little better graphics. If you like playing 1 guy on 5 guys this is your game. Your players controlled by the computer just flat out suck. Your controlled player is easy to get a shot off but you might make 1 out of 1000 shots if your playing above the Rookie level.

  • Summary: this game is terrible. you can never pass to the correct skater. hitting is insanely unrealistic online. your skaters very rarely get rebounds, instead they just look at the puck or skate away. the graphics are dated. nhl 10 was the best in my opinion. hopefully EA improves NHL 13, if not, i will not be buying any more of the NHL games.

Terribly Frustrating!!

  • Summary: This game has the worst freezing issues I have ever seen! Everyone seems to have an issue with freezing, for me it's in season mode, I can't lose a game or the game will freeze. This is absolutely frustrating, and it doesn't save, so I'll go 4 games into it and lose and it freezes and Iose EVERYTHING! Until EA fixes this I will NEVER recommend this game to a friend or anyone.

  • Summary: the game was good but there needs to be more reffs. and when they fight there need to be more injuries and blood and i like in nhl 9 when u could see your self fight i dont like how u can only see ur arm. When the goalie comes out of the net u should be able to crush him it should be just like the real hockey.

Hitting

Brandon C, Amazon
31 October 2011
  • Summary: I have loved the NHL series since NHL 93 for Sega. I really like this title but it seems like for every step forward they took, they took a step backward in some way. For instance breaking the glass, knocking off helmets and knocking the net off the moorings are cool additions to the game. However, the goalie fights are ridiculous because basically if you touch the goalie at all he can try and fight you. Another ridiculous thing is the hitting.

  • Summary: I love hockey NHL 09 and 10 good hockey games this 2012 is bad it make it no fun u do not have to have skills to win.the pass and shoot is to easy hitting from behind is a penalty but they do not call it the goalie is always getting push out the way...they do not break any hits the computer get in the way of the shoots.plus the most hardest shoot to make is one player shooting with out a pass never goes in the only way to score is by passing and shooting stick to 2010 it...

Same game as NHL 11?

Blynde , GameStop
15 October 2011
  • Summary: Very disappointed, looks the same as NHL 11, the gameplay is actually slower and goalie fights, who cares. I bought the game for the fun of hockey not the fights, BTW the fighting is the exact same as NHL 11, the loading and main screens have slight changes. The game is a total rip off, I feel like EA just wants money. The game was obviously rushed and is an utter failure in my mind. Normally a new game = a new game.

Ok aber schwer zu steuern

Christian Klein "wilmotsschalke", Amazon

  • Summary: Das Spiel ist gut gemacht und auch die Grafik ist wirklich ansprechend. Doch die Steuerung ist viel zu schwer und erschließt sich mir noch nicht so ganz. Leider ist keine Anleitung dabei und somit kann man nur hoffen durch ausprobieren die Steuerung irgendwann zu verstehen und Störungsfrei spielen zu können.

Für Anfänger und Gelegenheitsspieler ungeeignet

Vincent R., Amazon
2 July 2012
  • Summary: Das Spiel macht grafisch und inhaltlich einen guten Eindruck. Allerdings ist die Steuerung mehr als eine Herausforderung. Nur um mal eben 1-2 Spielchen zu machen, ist diese viel zu schwer zu erlernen oder zu beherrschen. Das Spiel ist nun leider bei mir nach 2-3 h Spielzeit in der Ecke gelandet, da einfach kein Spielspaß aufkommen will. Ich vermisse die alten, einfachen NHL Titel, wo man sich vorgesetzt hat und seinen Spaß hatte.

Es hätte so schön sein können...

TCarter002, Amazon
2 June 2012
  • Summary: Grafik und Atmosphäre gefallen uns super, die Steuerung ist leider sehr gewöhnungsbedürftig, so dass vor allem schöne Schüsse die reinste Glückssache sind. Das Dümmste ist aber, dass die KI selbst auf unterer Spielstufe lächerlich unfair wird, wenn es der EA-Gott will: Gegner sind praktisch nicht zu stoppen, gehen durch drei Spieler hindurch und treffen aus unmöglichsten Winkeln und Entfernungen, erzielen also Tore, von denen man selbst nur träumt.
