NHL 12 -- what do you think?


Recommended Posts

Did you get NHL 12?

What do you think of it?

Likes?

Dislikes?

New features?

Old bugs/annoyances that are still around? (does the announcer still say "he didn't mean to, but give him a blocked shot on that one!" every time a shot hits a leg?)

I didn't get 11, but I think I'll get 12 (going on an every-other-year pattern since $70+tax every year is too much for me when I don't use the online features other than roster updates (which have not been quite up-to-date enough in the past, especially with no update in the first few weeks after the trade-deadline..)).

Hopefully with the wages I'll earn with my job, I'll be able to buy NHL 12, even if I have to order it brand new online just so I don't have to pay the extra $10 bucks to play online on a daily basis since this is one reason I want this game.

Yes, I'll be playing NHL 12 with an open mind here. No use bitching about it since we still play 94 a lot anyway. :lol:

I for one absolutely LOVE IT.

The goalies are better. CPU defense is better. Passing is way better. Checking is more realistic (By a ton)

They fixed the goal glitches. There's none apparent as of now.

It's especially enjoyable when you play with buddies.

The physics-based checking was the only thing I felt bad about missing out on with NHL11. I really liked it in the '11 demo. Definitely looking forward to it with '12.

It was garbage/lies.

It worked in the beginning but they released sliders who made it irrelevant. This year size matters more.

Just like the weight bug fix, huh? :D

No it's not.

I don't get ''raped''. I lose like a game out of 10. It just becomes boring when the only way to compete is a glitchfest.

Poking is way different. Changes the whole game.

I think frey is saying that give it a few weeks and some loser out there will find the glitches and start using them online and it will turn into another glitch fest vid game

Well i'l give it a chance. If it does happen i'l resell it.

NBA 2K11 had no glitches a good player couldn't prevent.

BTW, anyone unlocked the EA Legends on the game yet? They were featured in a video not too long ago.

Wtf is a glitch? I will not buy this game and anybody who has should be ashamed

Ashamed? You should give it a chance. It is the best of the newer generation nhl games, better than 09, 10 and 11 in my opinion. The ai is much improved and the physics engine has moved in a good direction (plus the goalies are much improved) Overall, it just has a more true hockey feel to it than previous games.

The price of $60 is not the greatest I will admit...but when it also takes me $60 to fill my car every 10 days, the $60 for a fun game that I wear out doesn't seem so bad.
