Gamevet Hockey Glory tries out the NHL 15 demo on Xbox One and it looks like EA Sports fanned on the shot.
I'll be buying it. But sucks no OTP; at least right away there won't be. Boo.
bad review, game plays butter smooth on ps4. Can't wait to play friends online. I've played nearly every game in this series and this one feels quite good indeed.
Did EA put NHL15 DEMO behind a paywall ?
Stop listening to fatass Jim Sterling.
Gotta disagree a lot - White ice, turn your brightness down. - Players barely better than last gen? Really? A lot of this just seems like nitpicking to try and bash the game. For being a sports title, this game is pretty awesome. Next year will be better, but for being the first one on next gen? This is great! Heck the stuff actually worth complaining about isn't even mentioned because too much focus on nitpicky things. Sorry but looking at Stats isn't going to break the game.....
Played this last night. Absolutely amazing and fun as heck. Been ages since I enjoyed a good hockey game. Can't wait to buy my copy in two weeks.
I don't share the sentiments you guys seem to. It didn't play bad but it just didn't play that great. with Destiny coming out the same day and Shadow of Mordor coming out 3 weeks later, there just wasn't room for this unless I loved it. It feels like hte same hockey game I played 4-5 years ago which has always been good but not great. I hope ya'll enjoy it though as it's definitely well made.
You probably need to be a hockey fan to enjoy a hockey video game or a Canadian eh.
I am a hockey fan and loved the previous games but something just didn't feel right ot me. It's been a while since I've played a game so it may just be the rust but too many other games coming out this year for me to buy this one. It looks very nice though.
You shouldnt really generalize canadians as being die hard into hockey. I was born and raised Canadian. I watch all 82 games of my favorite team. I also played every single nhl game dating to the first copy. But not all canadians enjoy it. In my honest opinion so dont take it for a grain of salt but this Nhl 15 is sub par. Nhl had everything going for the game when NHL 13 hit the market. Absolutely incredible and it felt so real. Everything felt right. Gameplay mechanics, everything. Now Nhl 14 really was not an innovation more of an iteration of Nhl 13 with minor improvements. Moving on to the new NHL 15, alot of improvements were made but nothing really seemed different when it came to gameplay mechanics. Here's what I did -Setup my PS3 and PS4 side by side with PC monitors running 1920x1080p. -Adjusted all settings to real life nhl with allstar mode enabled -played two games 20 minutes a period on ps3 nhl 13 -played 20 games at 2 mins a period on NHL 15 demo So why not test Nhl 14? It's just another iteration of 13 like I previously mentioned. The gameplay mechanics from NHL 13 felt the exact same as NHL 15 in everyway possible. There was no real improvements on that front. The major improvements that were done were in character models, stadiums, broadcasting, backdrops and a new engine they built. Other than that nothing has changed. Yet I believe that improvements wil come in time but in this day and age you think EA would learn from their mistakes. Well they decided to strip GM connected and EASHL from the game because of optimization coding.Yet in their defense they say two years was not enough time to code properly. But again coding is easier now because were using pc architecture to produce games faster. It's easier to code. What is their excuse? There is none because they don't care about you. They know we will go out and pay for a sub par game just to get our fix. That's EA for you. Am I proud to be able to play NHL 15 on PS4 finally? Hell yah! Will I keep buying it over and over again? Hell yah! But I will not tolerate lies to gamers! Admit your faults EA because everytime you lie the hole in grave only gets deeper. Take the challenege and compare side by side with NHL 13 vs NHL 15.
That kinda like the Pepsi challenge..? Double-blind? ha jk. I enjoyed the demo. I'll buy the game in 2 weeks. I do agree though, it didn't feel substantially better other than presentation.
