Summary: I got this on the cheap after reading mediocre ratings on the newer ones. Review is totally single player, as I no longer have x-box live. Anyway, graphics are great, nothing seems too out of balance, and you even get hear some Judas Priest.
Summary: Maybe I'm just an old dude sitting on my porch complaining, but I find 12 to be the last really fun game in the NHL series. Maybe because it's less realistic and more arcade-y in comparison to all the new features that they've added. Anyways, it feels a lot more exciting to play 12 than any of the new ones, and I still pull this out when having showdowns with friends.
Summary: Pros: Solid game-play, presentation, game modes, great online features give it good replay ability, has Stamkos on the cover This is obviously an older version of the game now and it has changed but this is the last of the game-play before the realistic skating took over. This is one of those games where once you figure out how to score you can really smoke the computer. The real challenge comes from playing online against friends or random players.
Summary: My younger brother and I are big hockey fans and we loved this game! We aren't big gamers, but his game is very fun for our whole family. We have NHL 10 and 11 and this one is the best in my opinion. The graphics are really cool. The player's movements are very realistic. It's almost like a real game! Its very easy once you get the hang of it. There are so many settings and features! You can have multiple people play on one team, or against each other.
Summary: what a game! nhl 12 is one of the best sports games. even if you arent a hockey fan, this game is awesome. not all slow like football. sweet gameplay that may make a hockey fan out of you! way worth it. and this title won many awards. so many options. so many ways to play! score this one now!
