Pretty much. It makes him a nostalgic person more than anything. However, as mentioned earlier in the thread, you can play with the NHL 94 controls. It takes away most of the incredible gaming features, but if all you want to do is pass and shoot, it works.

Two more things about the game:

- Just figured out the new toe drag. It's incredibly good. It's fluid and just perfect. It's the same with all the dekes, they just feel more real in 11 when you pull them off.

- I was messing around in the shootout tutorial mode and scored a goal while doing the new jumping deke. It took me a dozen tries to get it right but it's awesome. It's hard to put the puck in the net that way so it's pretty satisfying when you pull it off.

i hate that you can only take one shot and you have to restart the 'drill' again, it takes forever for them to let your player skate around freely.


Oh, and I just read that we have an online practice mode for teams. absolutely cannot wait to try that out with you guys.

Nice! I thought you were retired since you stopped posting them on the 2khockey.net forums.

Yeah man it kinda sucks but hey, it's cool enough to be able to take shots for as long as we want in a demo. We're circumventing the demo's purpose.

And I agree, as soon as I heard about the practice feature I thought about our team. The only thing we truly lacked in 10 was chemistry so it'll be a great way to build it up. Plus, it'll help Gary learn the ropes.

Well, I have some new horn clip (Devils, Sabres and Wings) but I never uploaded them because I didn't had the time to make goal songs last year.


I'm wondering if the Pens have kept their Mellon Arena horn in their new arena though.

Can't wait to get my hands on it. I only have fun playing the NHL games online though, and I've moved out of the family house so no more free online PS3 games. I guess I'll have to start paying for Xbox live. Until then, I have SC2 to occupy me (bought it yesterday...damn there seems to be a lot more units this time around...).

I like the hitting mechanics and how they made the stick lift a little more realistic. Skill stick dekeing seems a lot more easier to use too.

what a joke EA becomes, make the exact same game each year, the only improvement is the junior leagues and broken stick(ohh yeah big deal..) WTF? Coaches still don't have their real faces, some major players neither (Keith? Markov?), hits still looks weird (i hit Chara with Seguin WTF?), and each year all the kids run to buy it and say how great the game is.... come on, EA made a lot better work on MADDEN or NCAA....

Madden hasn't changed in years.

NHL has made a lot of improvements.

If all you care about is a players' face, then maybe hockey games aren't your thing.

have they actually changed the whole rfa/ufa business? It was a bit of a joke how innacurate it was before. The 2-way contract stuff too

yes.

EA confirmed that there will have RFA/UFA in the game. (for real so it's completely brand new) Also, they said they improved the trading system in be a gm for making trades much more realistic.

RFA/UFA is an improvement, but what about game style? Have you seen how horrible the faceoff look? The fights are stil unrealistic, a player can stil handle the puck even if the puck is behind him, like i said, the hits still looks horrible... But if you're glad with your rfa/ufa and broken sticks it's up to you !

what about outdoor games? That's would be very cool to play the classic outdoor games, like last season at the Fenway Park or this year with the Habs and the FLames, it would be nice. That would be an improvement.

i'm not a fan of board bashing ya know, so assuming you're about 12 to make comments like this you must be happy to play the same game each year, yeah i know "you can break your stick" wow big deal ! i know the faceoff isn't anymore like NHL10, yeah it's still crap and look nothing like reality, yeah you have UFA/RFA contract, but ya know al ot of people just don't like playing the GM/Dynasty mode, plus the hits still looks horrible, so yeah i think make the outdoor game with the real arena would be cool ! much better than "broken stick" wow you're so blind man !

I take it you play hockey games for it's reality and not for fun? The online stuff they added is pretty fun.
