NHL 12


Once a year, all good Canadians gather together for a celebration of peace, love and joyous Harmony. These easy going, fun loving Canadians gather, heads held high, smiles on their faces, beers in hand and celebrate another monumental landmark in the...

He's still got all his teeth left, but there's still nobody better than David Brown to look at this year's icy outing.

You remember reading that review of an ice hockey game a while back? You might even remember reading last year's NHL 11 review. It'd be useful if you did remember, because it'll save you some time reading this. Because, like nearly always, it's the...

NHL 12


Hockey is a big part of my life right now. I work from home and live with my girlfriend, so I don't really get out of the house much. The one thing that does get me out every week is playing defense for my hockey team, the Crystal Lake Slasher, every...

Plenty to keep you playing ; Graphics are a treat ; Improved AI

Be a Legend feels shallow ; Not a lot of new features

This year’s EA Sports brand seems to be more about refinement than advancement. Every title I have reviewed seems to make strides to improve last year’s already stellar performance with some work under the hood. These are the years that make the...

Fans of the NHL series are unlikely to skip an entry, for any number of reasons, including the roster and uniform updates, the online play or the simple lack of competition, and there's no reason to start now, as this version's tweaks offer a genuine...

NHL 12 Review


Little things mean a lot in NHL 12, which subtly refines the best arcade hockey game ever made.

Accurate simulation of real NHL hockey ; Subtly improved defensive zone coverage and anticipatory AI ; Expanded CHL play lets you really get into your major junior career ; New Be a Legend mode taps into a limited slice of NHL history

Very few major differences from NHL 11 ; Some of the new defensive AI exposes problems with the offense ; Inelegant incorporation of the new Winnipeg Jets

The third and final notable addition this year is the 2011 Winter Classic pitting the Washington Capitals against the Pittsburgh Penguins. Just like the real outdoor game held every New Year's Day somewhere in the northeast US, this doesn't mean much....

Review: NHL 12 is the Series' Greatest Achievement


The king of all hockey video games returns in its best incarnation yet.

Sports video games distinguish themselves from other genres because they borrow rules, people, and locations from the real world. No one expects a person to grow twice their size after eating a mushroom or to have bullet wounds heal after only a few...

Ice hockey is a pretty weird game when you think about it, with a myriad of rules and line changes that can seem baffling to the uninitiated. And it is one of the few sports that seems to celebrate the fact that players get into brawls on a regular...

NHL 12 is yet another great ice hockey title that will appeal to new fans of the sport as much as it will to the old guard. The only quibbles tend to be minor ones, but the main issue is that this game is yet another in a growing line of updates rather...

NHL 12 Review (Xbox 360)


The on-the-ice action has always been about fast paced encounters with the opposing team. Whether you are trying to take the puck around net to score in the corner, crossing the neutral zone into the attacking zone or approaching the opposing goal the...

NHL 12 offers players a whole host of improvements over last year's entry when it comes to the expected modes like Season, Shootout, Online Play and Play Offs. Unique to Electronic Art's version of the grand ol' hockey game is the GM Mode, Be a Pro...

NHL 12 Review


NHL 12 remains king of the ice, but whether it's an auto buy for NHL 11 owners is a tricky question

Improved on ice play; Be a Pro mode received a lot of tweaks; signature styles an important addition

Not a huge leap from NHL 11; Be a GM mode still needs some work; presentation starting to drag
