    Basically the same game as NHL11. Still all the same bugs. Oh, but they've added goalie fights?

    How can a game like this have so many bugs out of the box?

    Rated on September 16, 2011 by polusmaximus

    Hey EA, there's something out there called "Beta Testing", you should REALLY look into it. How can a game that is basically a roster update from last year's version, which was basically an update ...

    Rated on September 22, 2011 by MurphyNox
