THE OFFICIAL NHL 13 THREAD

2,374 posts in this topic

Loose puck is non-existent If find with this new acceleration/performance skating.

Goalies are a lot better but I find myself sniping more goals in the demo alone than I did in NHL 12. Not a bad player by any means but I simply didn't play 12 a lot.

Not sure if this has been pointed out yet but has anyone noticed that in free skate mode, you play as the Kings, but you play in the Devils arena?

What you guys think of it?

NHL 11 is my favourite one and i skipped NHL 12. This is a whole lot different than 11 and more like 12. I guess all of them will be like this. Just going to have to get use to 13 but I love the skating and back skating, a lot more realistic moves I can do.

I think I like it, the new style will need to take some getting used to and i'm sure there are glitches to be fixed for next year. But it will hold me over until NHL 14. lol.

I won't be buying the game. Previous demos were fun, this one is not.

Good: Presentation

Bad: Skating, hustle, checking, board play, goalies, commentary, faceoffs

I've purchased every NHL game since NHL 98 too :(

It's so hard to score a goal from the point when there are like 100 bodies in front of the net. It can never go straight in, either a deflection or a tip-in.

Slapshot down the wing.. Easy to score.

I love everyone complaining. Same thing every year.

Also I havnt given up a goal in about 15 periods played so far. That's weird

Why can Adam Henrique skate by Doughty and get a clean break-away?

No. Can you even change the mode?

The demo is alright, besides slightly different skating, the ability to skate backwards at anytime, more difficulty hitting and better goalie moves, the game doesn't seem any different.

I wish they had improved the faceoff engine and deflections on defence, but yet again they failed, I love how every faceoff is cleanly won unless you purposely try to tie them up. So many shots in the NHL are tipped off target by the defensive team; yet unless you poke the puck off their stick before impact, the shots still go over your stick. They really need to fix these two issues.

The complaints ppl have arevkind of useless because usually the demo is something of a prototype from a month or so ago isnt it? All the bugs and stuff they found (while probably playing for a month) should be fixed for the actual game.

Quite the opposite. I've played the demo for the last two years and they were both fantastic - the improvements were actually an improvement, they were fun to play, and the game felt as real as it ever had.

This years demo should have been delayed. The skating is dreadful, the hustle move kills the game, faceoffs happen while the camera is still zooming in, passing is bizarre, the goalies are stiff or octopus-like, with no middle ground. Hitting is a joke. All in all, this needs a good month or two of tweaking. It's a poor demo of a game, and I will not be buying it because last years demo saw very little change before the game was released. Thus needs a huge amount if work.

:o You can fake backhand. Just like how it fakes the shot, you can fake going backhand.

Love the demo and HUT

Raymond(92), stamkos(90)-Grabner(94) was my top line

Speed kills lol (is their skating) probably got about 10 breakaways

Also in LA-NJ game I was doughty who I caught kovalchuk while back checking and he had probably 10 steps on me and a breakaway. Don't think doughty is that fast
