Finally got my PS3 running and downloaded the demo.

The new lighting is much, much better. You don't notice how dated the player models are. It's fantastic.

The new skating feels extremely sluggish. But every NHL game feels slow to me. I always crank the play speed all the way up.

The AI is still hit and miss...much better overall but sometimes guys would skate in WAY offsides, like 20-30 feet.

Scored on my first shot, then not again for maybe 50 shots. Too easy to walk in on the goalie but they are far too difficult to score on.

Why isn't there a short-term fatigue/recovery effect for the goalies? I think if they have to make 2-3 highlight saves in under 10 seconds, they should get so tired and be out of position and you can score easier. In real life, rebounds are a hell of a lot harder for goalies. Just a thought.

I wouldn't mind buying the game but have no money. Maybe when golf season dies down.

Also, Borderlands 2 comes out tomorrow!
