The menu is the same as 14 but the game play is certainly improved. The puck physics are more realistic, the hits effect both players instead of just the recipient, and in gm mode(where I spend most my game time) players improve and decline with there stats and age appropriately. Again I love it, old gen still has all the modes and is a great play. Expand

    Once you get past the 13 year olds mad because they spent their entire allowance on a game similar to last years, you can get to the meat ofOnce you get past the 13 year olds mad because they spent their entire allowance on a game similar to last years, you can get to the meat of the matter. Also, please understand that people slam this game because initial Xbox One reviews weren't good. So what. The 360 version has the goods. If you own '14, the gear and rosters are updated. Puck physics is pretty different as well. DL the '14 demo if you aren't sure to note the changes. This is a solid title that you probably won't have to upgrade from in years down the road. Of course, the new Blues jerseys aren't there and some goalie gear isn't brand new, but probably worth it regardless. Kids, keep your 7th grade critiques to yourselves. Expand

    IMO this year is probably the weakest in the sports franchise.

This year EA did nothing to fix the terrible AI in EASHL and also those cursed glitch goals. HUT is fine and Live the Life mode is fun. Whenever i play EASHL its insane how i barely touch a goalie and i get a Penalty and sometimes i destroy a goalie and i get no penalty on me so EA needs to work on the refs too. If it wasnt for my brother and my friends in Canada i would of skipped out on this year. I would only recommened this game to hardcore hockey fans and people who need their NHL fix for the offseason (like myself) Expand

I can't even begin to imagine what giant balls it takes to take the same product you released a year before, change nothing about it except for the most superficial things, and then re-release it at full price.

    EA: I've put up with a ton of crap from you in the past but this is really going too far. You're nothing more than a bunch of crooks!

    This is utter trash, and luckily I only paid $30 with a gift card -- it isn't even worth $15 or $20.

It's literally NHL 14, but they reintroduced 'puck physics' from every game before '14 where the puck doesn't bounce like a tennis ball. Good job EA. Where it ISN'T in the game. I'll wait on the next gen version as well for NHL 16, if they manage to fix it that is. EA needs to invest more money and personnel into NHL based on this shoddy effort, and fire "Rammer" for incompetency. Expand
