I am very impressed. I think I might actually pick up this one.



super pumped for this game

I already have a full EASHL squad lined up that I'm GM'ing.



The two things that amaze me about the NHL series are that it's easily the best sports series from Electronic Arts, and also one of the worst selling. There are tons of hockey fans in America and Canada, so why hasn't a single game in the series passed 500k (at least from my last check)?

Anyways, nice to see a quality game on the market.



 

 

I'm not impressed because I know nothing of hockey.

cool beans



Nope.



We had two bags of grass, seventy-five pellets of mescaline, five sheets of high-powered blotter acid, a salt shaker half full of cocaine, a whole galaxy of multi-colored uppers, downers, screamers, laughers…Also a quart of tequila, a quart of rum, a case of beer, a pint of raw ether and two dozen amyls.  The only thing that really worried me was the ether.  There is nothing in the world more helpless and irresponsible and depraved than a man in the depths of an ether binge. –Raoul Duke

It is hard to shed anything but crocodile tears over White House speechwriter Patrick Buchanan's tragic analysis of the Nixon debacle. "It's like Sisyphus," he said. "We rolled the rock all the way up the mountain...and it rolled right back down on us...."  Neither Sisyphus nor the commander of the Light Brigade nor Pat Buchanan had the time or any real inclination to question what they were doing...a martyr, to the bitter end, to a "flawed" cause and a narrow, atavistic concept of conservative politics that has done more damage to itself and the country in less than six years than its liberal enemies could have done in two or three decades. -Hunter S. Thompson

Simple.  On average there's 3 days a week where a hockey game is on.  What's better than PLAYING a game about hockey is WATCHING a game of hockey.  Then there's PLAYING hockey on REAL ice.  Ya... That's why in Canada it doesn't sell that well, because REAL Canadians are out playing hockey. :D



That's amazing! Hockey is my favorite sport so I will buy this immediately.



I'll buy it if the goalies aren't idiots like every other NHL game I've ever bought. In fact I desperately hope they aren't idiots because that review got me psyched up for this game.
