nhl15-nyr-lak-cele1-wm

EA Sports and EA Vancouver finally, at long last, have shown the masses what their next-gen hockey experience will be like with two gameplay videos for NHL 15. They’ve left little to the imagination, as the videos display the game’s new presentation, authentic arenas, crowds, graphics, commentary, collision physics, equipment layers, puck physics and more.

Being a huge proponent of both hockey and video games — and having watched the videos several times over — I decided to analyze all the changes that will be coming in NHL 15. If you haven’t seen the videos, I’ve embedded them at the bottom of this post.

NHL 14 Review

“Despite innovations that have made it one of the best sports game franchises in history, EA Sports NHL has always played third fiddle to both Madden and FIFA. This is clearly evidenced by the fact that NHL 14, unlike Madden NFL 25 and FIFA 14, isn’t getting a next-gen crossover this year.

Madden NFL 25 Review

Despite the series’ longevity, one of the constant gripes it garners from fans and detractors is that its annual release schedule has seriously hindered significant development. While that may be the case in the presentation department, this nostalgic version of Madden has provided some game-changing mechanical innovations that make it one of the most strategic editions in its history.”

This week I was able to get my hands on the NHL 14 demo, which didn’t offer a ton of content but gave a brief glimpse at some of the new features coming to this year’s installment of the long-running franchise. Of these features, one surprised me and fixed what I found to be one of the most boring and unauthentic parts of the entire game: Fighting.
