  • Serious Leap Forward
    Reviewed by JBone - October 18, 2021

    I always enjoy the game every year but this year is different. The graphics on the x series are out of this world. The goalie play is very realistic with them even making simple errors that do happen in real life like gifting the puck up to opposing forwards. You really have to be on your game defensively and the offense is not as easy as in years past. The superstar X factors are a nice addition and I am happy to see that they do not net a goal 100 pct of the time, for instance in last years edition, if you toe drag and go opposite corner with Matthews you scored 99 pct of the time making the challenge less fun. Now I feel You must be more precise. Whoever gave this title a 1 star in previous reviews does not appreciate the work that the programmers did to improve the game. This edition is not just a reskin.

    Yes, I would recommend this to a friend.

  • It’s in the Game!!!
    Reviewed by Smartmaximus - October 19, 2021

    This is by far not only the best version of NHL hockey from ea sports that has come out on any console or CPU since it’s birth way back in NHLPA 93 for Super NES!!! But it’s the best jump from year to year of any Sports Game on the Next Gen consoles (Xbox Series X Review) thus far. EA made a great decision not to rush out on Next Gen last year and just focus on the NHL 22 release. The gameplay is super smooth and ultra realistic - and using 4K 60fps monitor with HDR10 is an absolute pleasure to play on. I used up my entire 10 hour trial leading up to the early release edition i procured and haven’t put it down since. Other then opening some daily packs and concurring some important daily achievements I have not played any of my other titles since the release of NHL 22 - I normally used to be equal time on NBA 2k and FIFA and MLB the show - but nhl has finally come back to the top alone on my time algorithm and I am so very happy that the folks at EA have made me a game I can once again get completely engulfed in and excited for play it all times of the 24/7 days and weeks !!!

  • Gets worse and worse every year
    Reviewed by F.EA - November 24, 2021

    By far the worst game I have ever played. EA should just stop making this garbage at this point its quite clear they have next to no interest in making a good hockey game.

    No, I would not recommend this to a friend.
