But I'll save full impressions for late tonight. There is lots of positives so far and some negatives. And a lot of the same with the goalies, which isn't good.
Thanks for the response. That was my fear but I expected as much anyway. I just went from looking forward to trying the demo tomorrow to probably just playing Madden when I get home from work and downloading the demo some other time. It is a little encouraging hearing the D pressure is bumped up a bit though. Still I am about 90% sure this will be the second straight year I won't buy NHL. It's sad that not even the sport of hockey can even sell me this game or make me bite the bullet and buy it.

It's definitely worth trying it out. It's a little looser and clunkier, in a good way. With decent sliders might get a good offline game. I'm taking diligent notes for my write up though. Trying to list all positives and negatives for my "review".

But overall, I'm just liking that I'm playing a new hockey game at the moment. The 2min periods are killer. No setup time. And I'm a big cycler and work the zone guy.

Not complaining, great game, but unlucky game. Up 1-0 going into to last 60 seconds. Rangers score a legit goal with 58 seconds left. Then with 10 seconds left a Rangers player shoots a weak shot, Quick saves, but then a Rangers player is there to put the puck in the one spot where Quick isn't. Great game, lots of potential. No matter what, it will be in my house September 9th

Re: NHL 15 Demo Available Now on Xbox One, Post Your Impressions

the right stick control when you have the puck seems sluggish and weird. can you even stick handle with the right stick?
