    Do not buy this game!! It doesn't work

    Long time fan of EA Sport especially the NHL ones, but this game is crap! It doesn't work. It freezes all the time. I've updated the game and system and it will still crash. When I first purchased this game it was unplay... Read Full Review

    NHL12 is a must have for any hockey and gaming fan.

    Ok, for starters, yeah, there isn't anything revolutionary about this game from the previous ones. And yeah, it has its bugs and such, but let's be honest, all games do. Bottom line, this is a great hockey game and a gre... Read Full Review

    NHL 12 updates issues from last year, and is still as fun as ever, but a couple remaining issues hold it back.

    First off, I love the NHL games and the last few years of the series have been some of the best in the history of sports games. Tight controls, fluid broadcasting, and real to life presentation have made the NHL series t... Read Full Review

    NHL 12 is a revolution of all NHL games with new game modes

    Whenever I talk about what I'd like to see in other sports games, I inevitably reference the NHL series. Not that it couldn't do some things better, but the series has been so consistent for so long that it's just someth... Read Full Review

    This is the game hockey fans should be looking for and playing.

    There's a lot that was done excellent with NHL 12. It's amazing that you get to play as Gordie Howe or Wayne Gretzky, the NHL Winter Classic, and they brought back my favorite feature from the previous installments, Be ... Read Full Review
