"The NHL series has been around for over two decades and has garnered plenty of ‘Sports Game of the Year’ awards during this period. This year’s instalment doesn’t boast many improvements in the audio-visual department but instead features a new physics-based skating system, improved AI and a new mode called NHL Moments Live. The series’ popular ‘Be a GM’ mode has also been expanded to incorporate online interaction with other human-controlled teams.
All of these changes make for the most compelling, comprehensive and realistic ice hockey simulation yet, and one that can be enjoyed by anyone who appreciates sports games."
