5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent 10 Sep 2011
Platform for Display:Xbox 360
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Firstly i'd like to thank Amazon for there fantastic speed of delivery as i received this item the day before release!

Once again the commentary in NHL is excellent! for example if you score an amazing goal or produce a huge hit they will often reference the NHL Network or NHL on the fly which are highlight and analysis shows dedicated to hockey. E.G. "I'm sure that goal will be replayed on the NHL network all night" or "I'm sure the guys on the fly will be talking about that for some time."

Secondly the new feature in the Ultimate Team is the 24/7 opponent. Basicaly EA sports provide you with an AI opponent to play against any time on any day, usually they are made up of the players of the week. whereas previously you could only play against online opponents or in tournaments. Also new to the ultimate team is the ability to play a friend on Xbox live or the playstation network.

The new active goalies feature is sublime as it makes the whole playing experience unbelievably realistic! for example on NHL 11 if you were tripped on a break away you would just fall in-front of the goalie, whereas in NHL 12 you will often take out the goalie and likely dislodge the net too. Also the new fighting goalies ability is brilliant! i have already clocked up over 200 minutes in fighting majors!

New to NHL this year too is the ability to become a Legend. this basically allows you to play as some of the games legends, such as Wayne Gretzky and Mario Lemieux. it allows you to play as them and progress like they did through the NHL and eventually to the hall of fame.

Finally my favorite feature has to be the extension to Be a Pro.

4.0 out of 5 stars Big hockey fan, big EA fan. Big NHL series fan. 30 Dec 2011
Platform for Display:Xbox 360
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Every year this series improves, yet every year it STILL frustrates me.

If you're new to EA NHL franchise, then buy it, it's definitely one of the better modern games in the series.

Even if you're not, I'd recommend it, it's better than NHL '10.

I still the commentary is a bit rubbish, but pretty much everyone does, it still has it's good comments now and then though.

Gameplay is good as usual, still think a few little tweaks need to be fixed though to really make it smooth, apart from that and the very few glitches then I'd say this is one of the smoothest sports games in a long time. Faceoffs are better, shooting is better, saving is better, height and weight for a change really seems to make a difference. I really like the pause menu this year, the layout of the game is much better and the in-game highlight reels give it a sense of realism. Very good. 'Interactive' goalies and nets certainly make this much better as well, and being able to hustle in front of net is great.

Soundtrack, yeah it's alright. You don't have to listen to it though.

Be A Pro mode, MUCH MUCH better than last year, arguably the highlight of the game for me, you can start from the juniors in the CHL and work your way up to the NHL to become a legend. More achievements/trophies if you start from junior though ;). If you want them that is.

GM mode, is still pretty good. Can't fault it, equally nothing that makes it superb, it does it's job well :)

Online is good and apart from like every game that has an online mode, the only downside is the 'gamers' that quit if just before they lose or something stupid like that. Or if they just use glitches. Other that that it's good.

5.0 out of 5 stars NHL 12 - Best Yet? 2 Oct 2011
Platform for Display:Xbox 360
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Being in the UK and a devout Canuck fan means that my opportunities for getting my Hockey fix are limited. I've played NHL05, 07 and 11 and looked forward to the latest installment of the franchise. Graphically it doesn't differ much from 11 (not entirely unexpected... if it ain't broke...). Revamped intro scenes and video replay systems are good. Highlight reels from within the game - just like watching the real thing add distinctly to the realism. The physics engine has been improved again, collisions are more realistic, puck control is more difficult, helmets pop off, glass can be smashed and now checks can even bench opponents! The winter classic option is cool but basically its just a different background. My only fault with it was wanting to play as the Jets - the game was realeased too early in my opinion, it lacks the new jerseys which were released only a few days before the game itself. As the official game of the NHL couldn't the developers have been allowed to know what they'd look like? Maybe in time a patch will be released to rectify this. All in all - amazing!!! A new challenge to NHL11 veterans.

Before this NHL, I used to play NHL09 which is not comparable to NHL12. This is way more better. I really enjoy playing Be a Pro mode. Great sports game.
