What Gamespot Users have to say about NHL 14

  • Rating:8

    Great game, but also annoying.

    So, NHL 14 has been out for awhile, and with NHL 15 being announced for the next generation systems, I figured I'd put in my 2 cents on this game.First, I'm a huge hockey fan, and with no other real hockey game out there... Read Full Review

    Fans of hockey should skip this year, save 60$ and buy some beer!

    EA sports promess us an incredible amount of innovation with this game well they don't have the same vision of what is innovation has I do.Most of the time I skip a year buying a new hockey because its always the same a... Read Full Review

    Close but not close enough

    Im going to keep this simple. The graphics and presentation are great, but the game play is terrible. It doesn't matter what team or goalie you have, the computer will always beat you and make your goalie look terrible. ... Read Full Review

    Momentum Sliders and other obnoxious gripes

    There really needs to be a Momentum Slider that you can turn off in this game.These Momentum Boosts have taken me to the land of swearing obscenities more than my cheers.If I get a good lead, automatically all my player... Read Full Review

    Best NHL game in a long time

    I understand what Gamespot is doing by slapping a good ol' 6/10 on the sports games this year. To an extent, I agree that it's dirty pool to charge your customers $60/yr for updates that are typically patch-worthy or... Read Full Review

    EA continuously builds on a series to make the most realistic hockey sim on the market

    The game looks similar to NHL 13, which looks similar to all those of this generation, but it is not the point. The game feels like a perfected version of NHL 14. It is what a hockey sim should play like, you play like a... Read Full Review

    NHL Series player since NHL10; All I can really say is; "SAME OLD ****! SAME OLD ****! SAME OLD ****! "

    The commentary hasn't been updated since NHL10. NHL94 Retro mode is a complete joke of a tribute. The Enforcer Engine Is Awesome Live The Life is nothing special but could be something to work upon. HUT is still "Who... Read Full Review

    Best NHL to date. Short review.

    Last year, they revamped the skating system. This year they tweaked it to make it a lot better. Players don't feel as sluggish when trying to change direction. Can't say hitting is realistic but it is definitely more... Read Full Review

    Doesn't fix the problems from past years and adds some new ones.

    The NHL series is hot and cold; NHL 13 was very good but not revolutionary. NHL 14 is a step back. The visuals are mostly the same, the audio is as terrible as it's been for the past four years (the commentary is prett... Read Full Review
