hmm guess early access is good in these situations

Game is not good. The AI is overpowered which is ok as long as it's realistic. Doesn't matter the team, but the 8 passes in rapid succession to a one time goal is basically every goal scored against you. I grew up playing hockey, this is not hockey.

The one positive is they finally fixed the power play. I was actually able to set up and moved the puck around in real life, the AI on my team was not sharp enough to fill in positions if say I was a defensemen dropping low or pinching in, but overall, I was able to move the puck around, create space, and get some solid power play goals.

Overall, the AI fakeness ruined it for me.

I seriously hate that! It's been like that for a few years though. The AI randomly gets a power trip and suddenly you can't hit them, hit their stick, or block any passes.... If you are lucky the goalie will save it and you can hold it, but if the team all skates away and you play the puck they all come back, somehow man handle your players, and score....

Well it is EA... why anyone would think any of their titles are any good is beyond me. How many years till you people who support them wake up???

I was so hyped and ready for this game, but today I made the mistake (not really) of going to the operation sports forums and reading. Turns out not only did they take my favorite mode out EASHL, but they've removed almost every game mode and feature you can think of. This is a true bare bones game. How can you not have create a player or create a team? How about no editing players. The draft is computer simulated. This game is 100% all about game play and nothing else. The modes sound like they have received zero upgrades, actually in fact mostly downgrades. I'm so disappointed. I want to not buy it and pray that others do the same so that we hurt EA in the pockets, but I'm probably not strong enough to skip the game and am sure I'll cave in tomorrow and buy it. I am part of the problem...

I bought it solely to play with my friend in Vs mode online.. I'm in absolute shock that they've left out regular season mode and I'm not able to play vs mode online in arcade mode which is a bit of a letdown.

they've sold us about a quarter of a game compared to nhl14.

I am also part of the problem..
