Practically every piece of gameplay for NHL 18 has been refined and improved from skating, to shooting, to passing, to puck pickups. I’m happy to say, the end result is a hockey game that is tighter and more responsive than previous entries in the franchise.
Gameplay is so real, it’s like you are playing on an NHL team in real life! I love the fact that you can push opposing players from shooting lanes, lift sticks, and tie up your opponent’s body to ensure that the puck gets to the net. Just like in a real-world NHL game, your teammates now take greater risks and are more aggressive when the time calls for it.
EA Canada left no stone unturned, completing the true NHL experience, Goalies in NHL 18 are virtual replicas of their real-life counterparts. Goalies in NHL 18 react exactly as they would in a real NHL game right down to post-goal reactions. It is totally awesome, and you won’t believe how life-like the players really are!
