While I've only played the demo and I do have a biased opinion, I would hardly say it's the same game. The fact that the puck moves differently (the reviewer calls it loosely) is a difference in the game. Pucks don't stick to the players stick and allows for the more realism of hockey. The puck doesn't stick to the goalie again more realistically. You can crash into the goalie and screen the goalie. These are not minor changes these are changes that creates a more realistic goal. I don't want to sound like a troll, but I disagree with the concept that it's a not a different game. The changes they made, make it feel more realistic, not more loose. That's how hockey works.

Seriously, this is just a hit-grab. Year after after, this is the most highly rated sports game around. There would be an uproar if they changed too much.

In all honesty, the ONLY thing I would like to see overhauled is the commentary. They've gotten a bit lazy in that department and it's time to either record a whole lot more phrases (preferred) or an entirely new team (dont want this).
