NHL 13 Review

 

Just like FIFA and Madden, EA is slowly turning the screw on its NHL franchise. This latest edition isn't a particularly revolutionary product. It doesn't overhaul last year's formula. Amongst a time of uncertainty for North America's favourite skating...

The new skating mechanics feel natural and allow for some impressive play.

NHL 13

 

With the NHL in lockout one can?t help but wonder what this will mean for the EA Sports NHL franchise. During the last lockout, NHL 05 saw a drastic drop in sales numbers year over year. However, NHL 05 wasn?t really that great of a step above NHL 04

Yes, hockey fans are a sad bunch right now, what with the looming work-stoppage. But NHL 13 should put a smile on your face.

I really enjoyed my time with NHL 13. And if you’re a hockey junky like me, chances are you will, too. For a full-price title, gamers get so much more than mere roster and tuner updates (which come for free and with regularity, by the way). You also...

NHL 13 adds some great new skating physics and smarter AI, although you've already seen a lot of what the game has to offer.

Realistic new physics add tremendous skating authenticity ; Smart new player AI ; Very challenging gameplay ; Ambitious GM Connected mode has promise

Smart AI is sometimes too smart ; Still some rating quirks

NHL Moments Live is pretty much DOA. Just a few historic moments are present, and they are marred by having to re-create history with mostly modern lineups. So when you try to stage Doug Gilmour's big 1993 OT goal against the St. Louis Blues, you do so...

You hit like... a hockey player?

Strong offering of modes are back; Backwards skating!; Tons of content to dive into; True Skater Performance adds another touch of realism

Games modes are being moved to online

In the case of the good, the bad, and the ugly, NHL 13 has it all. It's not award-winning but it's still plenty of fun to go around. Just don’t trade in those NHL 12 copies just yet. If complete roster updates and fancy new game modes don’t have you...

All the new features with the modes that are available really point out that this game is made for fans of hockey. Those who love the league, their team and their superstars and want to play as these and historical legends of the game...

True Performance Skating based on physics; Updated left and right stick functions; Addition of hip checks; NHL moments live mini games

Difficult to get Be A Pro going; Not much customisation in create a player; Clunky sim time for bench shifts

Sure, our readers over in the US may not feel like it's a big deal, but over here in Canada, the release of NHL 13 is a much bigger event than the launch of Madden could ever hope to be. Of course, some fans may be rolling their eyes every time a new...

True Performance Skating” is bliss ; Much improved presentation ; Great online functionality ; Most realistic NHL title yet

Some minor glitches ; Classic online mode could use some new features

Overall, it can be said that NHL 13 is the best iteration of the franchise to date, and probably the best sports game I have ever played. It features numerous phenomenal improvements that bring the series to a whole new level of realism, while also...
