I was very pleasantly surprised. After a play-through of the tutorials I figured out some of the basics (very basic! Such as what "offside" is in NHL (very different to football), how to win a faceoff, what a "deke" is, etc) and with a bit of twiddling of the settings I managed to find a level that was challenging but where I could win occasionally. As I started winning more often it was nice to find out I could change slider levels (like NBA 2K) to make minor adjustments rather than jumping up to the next difficulty setting (where I was just getting trashed every game!), being able to tweak the game in this way, with a view to eventually changing difficulty, makes progression (with a view towards getting better at playing the game) much easier, less frustrating and more enjoyable. Especially as the difference between difficulty levels is night and day (across EA Sport titles!).
And, oh, WOW; is it fun!?! Single player is just great, from the first faceoff you are playing with a big grin on your face, with all of the usual options (play a career, take control of a team, play a friendly, play the game of the day, etc), enough to keep anyone busy for months. Multiplayer (playing together on one console; I haven't tried online multiplayer yet) is an absolute blast, the game ceases to be an ice hockey game and becomes a boxing simulator, occasionally interrupted by some ice hockey!
I only just bought this game (probably closer to the launch of NHL15 than the time 14 hit the shops), from now on this game will be on my list for release day purchases! I was really pleasantly surprised by this game, and it has provided a nice introduction to ice hockey for me.
The hits are amazing the speed in which the game flows at is great
LOVE IT LOVE IT LOVE IT
