  • Literally the same f***ing game. Literally.

  • I tend to buy the game every other year so noticed a big improvement visually from 19. The game is adjustable enough to to dial back the arcade feel and I play the true broadcast angle which makes it look better. Rosters are outdated but will be fixed. Couple of other bugs but they’ll be fixed too no doubt. Glad I updated.

  • No wonder why a lot of people play this game drunk or high.

  • i honestly thought they were using clips of nhl 20 to compare.... but nope its all 21, legitimately looks exactly the same. Just a $80 roster update . smh

  • No competition No reason to continue buying a new nhl game every year best to wait like 3 years then get the new one because, by then you’ll feel a substantial change over just minor changes and you’ll be saving money my suggestion is since titles wanna be shared on other consoles and composition is near dead why should a company try to impress its like if your winning the champions every year people eventually slip up in areas and go in cruse control instead of trying to make something more of it or different and new why should they ...there making the money and you guys buying into it stop buying the newer version every year and I believe things will change and you’ll get more content there not in control we are

  • So if anyone gonna talk about the tutorial? They have new moves this year and none of them is in the tutorial, thats terrible. Also funny how gamespot gave it a 9/10 and then doesn't make a video and post it on IDworlds like cowards. Can kinda tell they got bought out or something. Anyways, AI goalies are like spider monkey goalies, user goalies feel better this year. Poke check is a bit over the top, one timers is basically the only way to score on AI goalie. Switching your player in hut or online versus is frustrating as ever. Hopefully they patch some of this, wait that would be the next game right lol

  • I'm very disappointed with the game since it's the same thing every year since the15-16.. Hopefully, the next-gen on the PS5 will be better for the NHL 22..

  • FIFA has the same problem, passing is way to accurate and fast which makes the pace of the gameplay very high and arcadey

  • I cant understand why people are bashing EAs sports games so much, they make improvements to the games every year, its like gamers expect a hockey game to be completely different than it was last year, people have unrealistic expectations of games in general, that is for sure.

  • If you want a true honest review from someone who has played hockey and has played NHL games since n64. Nhl 21 is nhl 18 with 3 dlc packs. The online eashl is the same 1 timers galore and the gameplay is the same. Only thing I will give them credit for is be a pro other than that this game is 2 out of 5 stars tops.

  • My biggest issue is that you can get beat by a player that is less skilled by them just b lining it to a corner and throwing a perfect cross crease pass one timer to beat you continuously while letting the ai play as the defense for them.

  • Did the fix the "Big hit = Instant Fight"... Even if that player has to skate from a completely different area zone instead of whomever is in close proximity... EA needs to lose their license to Madden, FIFA, NHL, UFC, STAR WARS, and many other... Holding these titles hostage is not the way to earn revenue

  • Its more ARCADE?! NO WAY! u can change settings for that each game depending on what type u wanna play? My n my cuz play 1 series and a coin toss on arcade or regular mode.

  • When EA stops handicapping lower ranked players in online VS then i will give a damn until then I could care less. I get they want to make the game more exciting but why play people when the computer makes up so much of what happens. Everytime you get to 750 they will hand you 10 losses in a row to 500 ranked players, its so lame.

  • Fair review, happy to see some reasonable critique to the yearly formula.

    Nero3335Nero33357 hari yang lalu
  • I’m shocked they put that much time & effort into BAP. Imagine if they would’ve done this 3-4 years ago, it would be looking incredible at this point. It is a bit repetitive but is much more enjoyable to play. I’m surprised they did this much with it being the last game in the console generation. Gameplay is definitely a let down with little to no improvements from last year, guess it could be due to it being the last game of the generation. I’ll echo a popular opinion and say that the lack of a competitor is evident this year as it is every year.

  • This is the first time since 1998 I'm skipping buying this game. I played the alpha/beta/brandedDonyouDareTakeScreenshotsOfThisMasterpeice NHL 21 and it was enraging. I was so pissed I only played it that night. The damn 40GB download or whatever just wasted my time. Minimal tweaks. Same crap. Sick of it! Monopolies ruin everything.

  • I bought a discounted NHL 20 earlier this year - the first time I’d played it for a few years. I literally played it twice before deleting it. The commentary actually made me feel anxious and when Snoop Dogg made an appearance, that was it for me. From what I see here, there’s nothing that makes me want this. Sports games have hit their peak on PS4.

  • Is it any better than nhl 20 I play franchise mode mainly

    EricEric10 hari yang lalu
  • The game is decent but I understand the frustration. Still, it seems they try harder with NHL than their other franchises even though it's got not even a fraction of the budget with a smaller team. Yes. The game is still pretty end to end and the flow is pretty much the same as the last few years. Goalies are better for sure and AI is improved as well over 20 in both opponent and teammate. I don't like how after NHL 19 they nerfed the crap out of Dmen . Point shots are still basically useless so no one even tries them anymore. Every rush is just looking for the one-timer . I wish the gameplay encouraged more cycling and strategy which is why it kinda feels more arcadey at times. I buy this game every year. I don't think I've missed an NHL game in a while. There's some I missed from EA because I jumped to NHL 2k for a few years (2k4, 2k5, 2k6) Also had 2k on Dreamcast. The excitement has been kinda dwindling this gen for the franchise. I have way higher expectations next gen but what I really want is 2k to come back and get another shot at a hockey title. I always thought EAs game was more arcadey.

    Matt YorkMatt York10 hari yang lalu
    • @Silver Animation EA doesn't own the license for NHL. It's all fair game. Anyone can make an nhl game. You're right though. I don't think the money is there for anyone else to jump in and take the reigns. NHL doesn't make the money most other franchises do and going head to head with EAs established franchise is a risk. Another competing game is the only way this game is going to truly evolve. Maybe one day..

      Matt YorkMatt York8 hari yang lalu
    • I don't think 2K will come back because of not having the licenses, they're too focused on other franchises like NBA, and their NHL games towards the end didn't sell well.
