What's everyone's opinion on game???

Considering Buying this for PS5 but want real honest reviews & opinions as I read other reviews but not sure which sites to believe.

Would you recommend getting this game or Is It a hard pass??

Also is the Wichita Thunder in game? If so are they playable in franchise mode & outside of franchise mode?? Thanks

Chiefsfan, you can see lots of opinion from people on this site in this thread. https://forums.operationsports.com/f...bscribers.html

Some hate it, others are on the fence and some like it allot, lol !

Depends on what you play the most and you expect from that said mode…

Re: What's everyone's opinion on game???

I played the 10 hour trial, and it’s a hard pass from me. If it helps I really liked NHL ‘19-‘22.

I know a lot of people are saying the LOVE the gameplay this year because the defense really is more challenging. But your AI teammates are dumber than ever in my opinion. I can skate circle in the offensive zone and none of them will ever make an effort to get open for a shot. And when they do, they are hardly ever in a position to actually take a high percentage shot.

Also if your a franchise player, EA as taken out slot of simple options that actually allowed the mode to function properly. This year, even if you fire your coach and hire a new one you are stuck with whatever strategy set you start the mode with, with no ability to change it. Which means if you start with a defensive strategy set, your are stuck with it. Coaching staffs were one of the big features they added a couple of years ago, and EA essentially rendered it obsolete.

Also, I see alot of people on her super excited that the crowd now chant “go (insert team name here), go”! But other than improved crowd sounds the presentation package is not worthy of a AAA title such as NHL.

It’s definitely one step forward two steps back this year. With a good tuner set ‘22 actually plays pretty well and has way more quality of life functions that just make the experience way more enjoyable.

Just my honest opinions to help you with your decision

Re: What's everyone's opinion on game???

There is something to like for those playing only franchise (like me).

Coach now matters.
Ok i know lots people complain you cannot edit strategies...

Well that is only one part of the story.
You cannot change the fundamental scheme of your coach (making now coach mattering for real).
But game gives you LOTs of tactical options to organsie situation even change player position, or who takes the faceoff etc.

It is quite deep and looks like real hockey immersion IMO.
So after thinking "dam they removed something" I know think this is actually making hockey sense and give ne much more control.

With all due respect Therebelyell, this is where I'm lost to be honest ! Maybe it's because of my sliders, maybe it's because of me playing player lock, but I see none of that ? And I really don't have the time and space to skate in circles…

I played a game last night and these moments are plenty, and they all happened in the 1st period and I didn't have to really look that hard to find them also…

** Note I play player lock in Action Camera, so in the heat of the moment, they are harder to find because you are not playing from the sky (god bless all the YouTubers with shadows 4 times bigger than the puck) 🙄… Your vision is way more limited…

All-Star difficulty and In this clip I control no.19, no.74 and no.4

In the 2nd clip, I had so many options and I screwed up, lol ! That's what I get playing with no pass assist 😆
