GameSpot: NHL 12 Hands-On

GameSpot writes: "Over the past few years, EA Sports has done an excellent job innovating its NHL series, and NHL 12 is expected to be no different.

I love the NHL series, but two things really annoy me (when I play online, which is 95% of the time):

1) Most games end up being a contest of one-timer. That happens because it's still the best way to score. Sure you can shoot from the blue line and expect a deflection, but this isn't happening that often. I wish the improved AI will help for that. For instance the AI-controled player in front of my net (in defense) should be able to intercept the one-timer pass.

2) Glitch goals: ok ok I know they will never get rid of those as some cheeser online will always find a way, but still. For instance, I hate the wrap-around glitch where the goalie just moves stupidly and the player can score five-hole...

agree completely, another one is the quick deke in front of the is guaranteed 95% of the time to score

I love the game but I go in with the mindset of playing like real hockey and get beat by the guy with one move that never fails

I totally agree with you. Also, in EASHL (EA Sports Hockey League) there's a stupid glitch deke that 95% at the time the AI defenders can't do anything about, and that leads to a goal to the opponent which is extremely annoying. As a whole is NHL a really great sports game series.
