5.0 out of 5 stars Ellen Ash Treize Bon, 15 Sept. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: NHL 13 (PS3) (Video Game)
A great game. Finally it is a match for FIFA in terms of graphics and gameplay. On the graphics side the presentation is much better than before with relatively close player likenesses instead of generic faces for all but the top stars; there have been subtle changes to the lighting which makes everything look more realistic; the cut scenes actually match where the players were on the ice and what they were doing; Martin Brodeur's mask is the official one!; the Winter Classic looks stunning and it is great to be able to pick your favourite team and have them on the main menu. Gameplay-wise the True Performance Skating gives a completely different feel to everything you try to do in terms of offence and defence. Once mastered it's a massive improvement over previous NHL's. As far as shooting goalie's can be scored on more easily in some ways and not as easily in others. Five-hole shots will work now while cross-creasers aren't a sure-fire goal anymore. The hitting seems to have been toned down and this goes for colliding with goalies where it won't automatically lead to a penalty with so much ease as it did in NHL 12. A new feature is the Chop Puck which is a brilliant addition; great for keeping the puck away from the opposition more effectively than the poke check or even to pass to team-mates. NHL Live Moments is an old idea but new to NHL and it makes for some interesting challenges. The game isn't perfect but it's undoubtedly the best-looking and best simulated version of a hockey game there's ever been. About a thousand times better than NHL 12 that's for sure.
