Ive been wanting to get a NHL game for quite a while and and am glad I did, I don't see why people complain about some missing game modes, there are plenty for hours of fun especially with the awesome gameplay and visuals, highly recomended.
Great game. Initial rough start due to a couple additions that came in a patch leading to some poorer reviews (or people reviewed while the game was still downloading and you're limited to one game mode while it does). Has all of the modes people actually use. Graphics are amazing, NBC commentary is fresh (no more "there's a guy who can put the puck in the net denied" finally), and sound feels like you're really there. Play very realistic.
If you're expecting a completely stacked, feature-laden game as you've gotten in the past, you're bound to be disappointed and on the phone with EA's customer service department, wondering where the majority of your game content has gone. However, if you're an avid hockey fan, you probably won't mind hitting the ice and taking part in a well-rounded contest of hockey, and seeing what the new visuals and audio have to deliver.
NHL 15 is right to focus on improvements to the gameplay and the presentation, but they aren't nearly good enough to justify the cuts made elsewhere. It dazzles out of the box, but it doesn't take long for the upgrades to feel shallow in comparison to what's missing. Ultimately, NHL 15 feels like a major misstep.
As someone who plays every NHL yearly release all year long, it is unfortunate to see just how badly this has gone. I can somewhat understand taking out 6v6 online play if it wasn’t ready, but taking out features in Be a GM or making Be a Pro completely unplayable is just ridiculous.
This game is fun to play and has great physics. Players feel heavy but agile and the stick action is solid and the overall play is fun. I understand people being frustrated with the game modes but if you play madden it was a worst change. I disagree with all the critics gameplay is what all games should be... Fun.... If you want a simulation game find a fantasy game. Game modes are all about social play nowadays. Regardless
Electronic Arts should be ashamed of themselves for releasing an unfinished video game like NHL 15. The game has quite a few of bugs and glitches which may ruin the experience for many . Sometimes the game is just laughable. Goalies are absolutely horrible in this game. Not to mention that there are so many features missing in the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One versions of the game. There isn't even a feature to play with a friend online against another player. One thing I must say is that the game does have good graphics, but that is just about it. Very disappointed, I really did expect better.
SummaryThe Skill Stick purports to give more control to the player. Protect the puck, receive passes without breaking stride, and discover an arsenal of sweet new dekes, all with an intuitive right stick control scheme. The game features Doc Emrick, Eddie Olczyk and analyst Ray Ferraro providing play-by-play and commentary throughout the procee...
