EA sports brings us another NHL game on PC this year with very minimal graphic improvements and gameplay. I bought the game knowing that they didn't change anything at all aside from a few gameplay tweaks (goaltending is great in this game).

The most disappointing thing about this game is that they removed all teh EA online servers leaving us to play against one another in a Peer to Peer fashion. However this has also been improved since the gameplay in P2P mode isn't slower than molasses. I really wish EA would put a little time and effort into making a real hockey game for the PC.

If They can improve this game via PC, it could rival or even destroy its console counterparts but EA needs to stop being so damn cheap and give us what we want! Also get new commentary.....I'm tired of hearing the same old crap!
