couple more things to add about my thoughts on this game

pros

the overall gameplay does feel better minus the poke check everyone seems to be datsyuk in this game
i do love the diversity in what you can ask for in the trading block
the new player roles are great
you can request a trade and retire


cons

the goalies seem really quick side to side any goalie can make a diving gloving save
menus and simming are painfully slow
my be a pro coach has kesler on the third line center while the second line consists of higgins burrows and hansen
the star potential system is annoying i wish they stuck with the letters
be a pro and be a gm way too many trades of star players during pre season
raymond is too good in this game
no post whistle action

thats all for now

I tried requesting a trade in my BAP after my team (Anaheim) decided to trade all of their good players. The only decent player left was Bobby Ryan and the rest were under 70 ovr. Anyway, I asked for a trade, was told no, then asked again a year later and got "I already told you I'm not going to trade you. Enjoy your demotion!". The next year they decided to let Ryan, Beauchemin, Sbisa and others walk and now my pro is the only player over 70 ovr on the team. :(


i guess my dream of 30 teams in one season won't come true

When I did the playtest a couple months back there were 2 or 3 canuck related NHL moments. The Bruins rematch and the Detroit winning streak and one more.

There were a bunch extra they took off the main game, I'm not sure if they're just waiting to slowly release them via download or..

In my eyes drouin is overrated he can score in the qmjhl but did nothing in last two gold medal games that canada lost. Fox will be better pro than him talk to me in five yrs

Gaudreau has one NHL goal whereas all your "prized" prospects have none.

   ryan kesler is going to the chicago blackhawks ...       quote me on it

Buy them at the "store". There one of the few card packs. Hopefully you were signed in to EA when you won the HUT tournament in the demo.


Ahh, thank you.




Absolutely LOVING this game right now. It's so much fun. No complaints from me so far.

This games hitting feature is laughable. Half the time I hit a guy it's just a shove yet the AI can hit me like a tank.

Also when I do lay out a good solid check the AI does a complete 360 in mid air while his helmet flew like 20 feet into the sky.

The BAGM is pretty lame in this game.

I hate the the new trading system, I offered Florida Luongo, Tochkin, 2 1st Round Picks (after 20 min on negotiations) for Versteeg, Garrison, and Goc (started from draft). What they told me was we are interested in Kellan Tochkin but won't take the other pieces of the deal, like wtf?!?

Alright guys (and gals :P), I'm considering buying NHL 13 but I wanted to ask anyone who got it today to tell me how it is.

- Worth buying?
- How's the gameplay?
- What are some good things in the game?

Keep this in mind, I didn't buy NHL 12, so I still am playing NHL 11.

Thanks everyone.

I would say it is a step back from NHL 12!

There are no scrums after the whistle, the hits are completely lame, Be A GM is bad, and the game is very "laggy".

It's definitely better than NHL 12. It's a leap forward.
