We care because we love hockey, we enjoy video games, and if I want a hockey video game I have to turn to EA. NHL 12 is terrible, many attributes are essentially useless having such a minor effect on what its supposed to do like speed. OHL players skate backwards nearly as fast as Crosby skates forwards. Little players can really make Chara fly. Not to mention the terrible AI.

I have high expectations for each future NHL game is it wrong to have them?

The funny thing is that those who hate it will still probably buy it.

Because people like them like them like to think it makes them cool or ahead of the curve to bash or have negative to a fault views on things that have a generally positive public reception.

nhl 12 was better than 11, and both were fun games. Most of us played the crap out of them. well guess what? 13 is much better than 12 and we can't even mess with the sliders yet. sure it has faults, but cmon guys...you are acting like someone drew a moustache on the mona Lisa...its a hockey video game that is an improvement on the previous one-much moreso than 12 was of 11.

This thread has turned to the point that any criticism means you're a basher? You EA f-boys are just a bad.

Yup, like me.

I'll admit i wasnt a hater for very long, but when I played the demo, i hated it, a lot of things pissed me off about the game.


Took me about 10-15 games to get used to the game; i skipped NHL12 so i was used to NHL11


But now I preordered and im so excited for NHL13

I don't know why people trade in sports games on the day the new one comes out. Trade it in like 3-4 months before and you'll actually get something decent from it. NHL 07 was the last NHL game I traded it in, right before NHL 08 and I got like 75 cents for it.

IDK how much value NHL 12 would get me........its well documented how EB ***** u when u trade in games.

I just don't play these 3 and instead of paying full price hopefully I get $20-$30 taken off and that's being generous on their end.

Probably get like $15 from EB for them

Then you have 3-4 months of not having an NHL game.. the difference in the amount you get for the trade in doesn't make up for that

you really can't go without a game?

I traded in NHL 11 just after 12 came out, got around 1.75 I learned my lesson.

Even if you're hardcore into these games, put your trade in august. I'm hoping you can go a month without NHl series.

**** EA man.

I admit, I have been kind of ****** at the demo and have trouble with the tournament. However, the three times I have managed to win, EA has signed me out at some point and not informed me. Therefore, I have yet to get my HUT cards for winning the tourney. soooo irritating.
