EA Sports went back to the drawing board after the less than stellar release of NHL 15. By including fans in the development process, the franchise is on the upswing in a big way.
Great article! This is definitely gonna be the year I get new hockey
I passed last year myself but will be coming back this year. Good to hear they went to the fans and actually listened, that's the way it SHOULD be.
I tried it used last year and returned it the same day. It was the least fun I'd ever had playing a hockey game. Sounds like this years is better.
Yup, no surprise. Last year was garbage but they just spent too much time working on other stuff like the crowds and aesthetics in general. Now that they've got that nailed down, the actual game modes that were cut can come back.
Still feels like the same old game though. Sadly.
Played this and it is really good so far!
1 Question! How is the online team-play????? They also need to add a lot of the features they have in Madden like training camp, practice camps etc. Also the MUT in Madden is top notch!! But it is definitely good to hear positive things so far.
Still needs create a team, and they shouldn't be praised for bringing back features that were previously removed, but it's a solid effort and return for NHL. Hopefully next year more is added instead of things being taken away.
