9.0 Game Review - NHL 13

Played the demo. Nothing special. Same copy and paste crowd, a lot of the same animations, graphics are the same. Same game since 2010 really. Maybe I'm not a hockey technical master but it looks and plays the same as all the other ones.

Odd numbered NHL 'XX usually are worse than the even ones (my experience)

I can only say something about my own impression from the demo:

1) You get glued to the boards while skating. A thing from the past, NHL '97 ? Not as bad at all, but still, I can see myself get frustrated.

2) The passing was below average in accuracy.

With this in mind, I will wait a while and hear what impressions there will be from others. Time will tell.

I found it retarded that you can still score from like 97 feet away from the net like 3 out of 5 times. Talk about taking the realism out of the game. Like is the goalie even awake?

Haha! I never exploited that feature. But, yeah. I can see that spoil the game.
