With the exception of being able to invite players to join a game online, the mode lineup, which included the likes of Franchise, Exhibition, Pond Hockey and Mini Rink, was the same as last year's game. The presentation was slicker, the menus were shinier, and the colors looked brighter and crisper than ever before. But the game didn't feel fresh. It didn't feel like a new experience."
