New Game Network: "It’s fall again, and that means various sports leagues are getting ready to kick off their respective seasons. One of the bigger sporting activities in North America, and in Canada in particular, is of course hockey. And without fail, EA Sports is once again set to deliver its yearly NHL title. With NHL 12, the developers have made some good adjustments, and as every year, a few nice features stand out that warrant fans to have a look. Underneath it all, this year’s version is eerily familiar to last season’s effort, but unless you are a casual fan or already own NHL 11, it’s still a good game to get."
