NHL 11 (Xbox 360)

 

A tagline like "Any moment can be a wow moment" just invites mockery. Splashing this catchphrase all over the back cover of NHL 11 for the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 is certainly over the top and more than a bit cheesy. But it's also totally accurate....

EA Canada continues their trend of excellence. It is no secret that the NHL series from EA Sports has been one of the best things to happen to sports gaming...

New physics engine ; Ultimate Team finally ; Online is a blast ; Stellar presentation

Most modes are untouched ; Some repeating commentary

The NHL franchise from EA is what I would call a sports game anomaly; those who have never watched the game or even like it still seem to rate the games. Like myself, I have never even seen the sport; the closest I got to an ice rink was just before...

EA Sports' NHL franchise skated onto the ice in August of 1991 with NHL Hockey, which was available only on the Genesis. With each successive release of the NHL series, EA has done an incredible job of integrating the fundamentals of hockey into the...

New real-time physics engine, broken sticks, custom goal celebrations, disallowed goals, new face-off system, playoff beards

Matchmaking issues, losing is no fun

Hockey has been the basis for some of the most-beloved sports games in video-game history, be it the original Hockey (otherwise known as Pong), Ice Hockey and Blades of Steel for the NES or the legendary NHL 94 for the Genesis. There's something about...

This is easily the best NHL hockey has ever been on a console, and it sets the bar incredibly high for EA's next release. In fact, it delivers such a fun brand of game play and such a depth of enjoyment that many fans might only be forced to buy NHL 12...

While it's surely hard to reinvent the videogame version of a sport that doesn't change year after year, EA Sports has managed to make something unique of its latest hockey title, NHL 11.

Following a solid showing for several years running now, the newest of EA's annual NHL games brings with it a new mode that will engage the hardcore hockey gamers like never before - and make EA a bunch more money out of the less-than-expert users…...

We can't quite fathom why ice hockey isn't a more popular sport outside of North America. It's got everything: high-speed action, plenty of violence and even a device that rhymes with a swear word. What more could you possibly want? Even EA's video...

NHL 11 is every bit as solid and playable as its predecessor. Broken sticks add very little to the game, despite being peddled as a key new feature, but the numerous refinements show in the physicality on the ice and the returning up-close and personal...

Day at the Rink

The most authentic gameplay I have ever seen in a sports-sim

A few minor issues, overall no major downsides

In NHL 10 simply bumping a guy off the puck was essentially a blunder. In NHL 11 separating skater and puck is a lot tougher and much more rewarding due to the newly added real-time physics engine. The ‘checking' is so realistic that you might find...

Arguably Electronic Arts best sports game in the past few years could also be its most overlooked. I am of course talking about EA's long running

I would not have imagined that I would be this positive about NHL 11 without having significant changes to my two favorite modes Be a Pro and Be a GM. And yet even without updating the two big modes of NHL 11 from last years offering EA managed to make...

REVIEW: The Canadians are on to something…

Phenomenal on-ice action is the best it’s ever been.; Hockey Ultimate Team’s addictive, satisfying card system

Hockey Ultimate Team’s terrible interface and progression problems

You can’t play HUT if you’re not on Xbox Live? Really?
