Nhl 11/12

anyone play the demo yet?

I downloaded it yesterday and played for a while, and I really, really, really like what I see. Ultimate Team Mode is going to be amazing, and the gameplay is much better than 10. My only complaint is game speed, it was too slow IMO.

Thoughts?

Change it from the default setting to normal and it should speed up for the demo.

I don't play ultimate team until I get my first line of:
Beleskey-Getzlaf-Perry
Fowler-Lydman

Takes a while.

the game speed is actually one of the few improvements i think was actually needed. players simply did not move around as fast as they did in nhl 10. maybe at top speed it was close, but people just like fast games, but this is more realistic.

i still honestly hate the goalies and shooting mechanic so much tho. i hate the goalie's reaction, i hate how they move around so well in the crease and are always in perfect position. i hate how you have to wind up shots and i hate that you cant snipe goalies from anything other that a perfect angle. i don't know how many times ive seen teemu fly down the right wing and just try to flat out beat the goalie to the far post. the angle isn't usually great, but goalies aren't perfect and if you get a great shot off there's usually some room. i never feel like certain shots have any possibility of going in with this game. and thats when the goalie can actually come out and cut down the angle. and when a player centers the puck in real life, you hold your breath even if the pass doesn't end up connecting just because you know if it does it's an amazing chance. in this game... nope. i can just pass it into the slot so many times and just watch the goalie glide into position and effortlessly deflect the puck like it was nothing.

Chara-Myers on UT made me go change my pants.


Also I don't like the stupid intros EA is doing now. Rooney scoring every stinking time I turn on FIFA 10 is the only thing I remember and now I'm going to have to watch Hiller get scored on every time I turn on NHL.

If Beleskey puts up a 77 overall performance this year we should win the cup.

Well played sir.

And Ultimate Team is where you get your own "expansion" team, and try to make it better by playing online and stuff. Its pretty cool, they made it so the players are on hockey cards, and to get new players, you buy card packs.

This probably explains it better than I can lol

They have UT in FIFA and it is fantastic. If it is even remotely close to FIFA's, then UT will be great.

Takes a while.
Got that one on my first time, with my team named the Ducks.
I also had Malkin Seguin and Hall. so I didn't turn my PS3 off for a whole day.

I was very impressed with Fowler when I played Windsor, he took the puck from me like 8 times. So I was pretty pleased with that. Also Beleskey is rated higher overall than Hall, so that was pretty satisfying.

Man that is a sick team. Take out Malkin and add Tavares and Okposo for me.

I guess the game seemed a lot slower to me since just before I was playing 06 like non stop. Now the game feels more better after playing it more

Yeah the best part was when I scored with Fowler assisted by Getzlaf and Perry.
But yeah this game is pretty impressive, except for the lack of speed burst.

When I played Fowler on Windsor, he layed Getzlaf in a Red Wings jersey. So much wrong with that sequence

I am utterly addicted to EAUHL.

Opened my 1st pack and got Iginla...talk about some luck.

Too bad I'm stuck with Junior players and McBackup as a goalie.

The goalie I got was Toskala so dont talk

Purchased some packs with the points I won and I got Ryan trained him to 93 overall haha.

I was trying to play season mode but I'm going to wait till there are roster updates. Still have Wiz and Eminger and no Sbisa for some reason

DAMN U! I named my team name "Team RPG" in hopes that I could land all 3

That's pretty nasty you got to 93 with him. I am trying to figure out what the max training number is so I don't train people with bad cards. I got Iginla to 93 though. Wonder if I should sell him (and for what price) to try to get more packs and make my team stronger.

Yea I don't think season roster updates will kick in until right before or right after the season starts.

Haha good name. I'm pretty sure it would be something like 99 which would be hard to get most players to. I got almost all NHLers for my forwards.

Sullivan-Brule-Ryan
Kelly-Christensen-Little

my top 6 isnt bad but I have like no defenseman.
Only two worth mentioning are Cumiskey and Jurcina

Love how good Australia is with games and bringing it out like 3 weeks later.

Sucks I can't really play much online since ice hockey isn't too popular here

When I tried Season mode I couldn't even find him. But on BAP mode I was paired with him during pre season. Was weird
