Re: NHL 15 Demo Available Now, Post Your Impressions (Xbox One, PS4)

The more I play the demo, the more I think my decision to cancel my preorder was the right one. The gameplay doesn't really feel all that different, and I've seen too many things (I've seen too much man!!!) that bothered me in previous years (like a low puck hit the goalie in the pads, flipping up into the air and over the goalie's shoulder to go into the net). Also found Doc to be a bit robotic (though I laughed when I heard him say waffleboarded), which was a bummer. I'll eventually pick this up when I can get it for around $30. Too many modes removed, not enough freshness to warrant full price IMO.

I still can't understand the color scheme on the menus. During the team selection screen, I have white lettering on a teal glowing background. You can't read the text. Same when you want to select position lock...it appears to be maybe black on a glowing red. Something so simple as the color scheme in the menus was overlooked. Makes me worry about the full version of the game. Can't wait for the , "3 year developmeent plan for the new consoles" excuse again.

People are right to be wary. Sliders for the past few released have had minimal effect, and the demo has played pretty much exactly like the final product, which is regardless of skater fatigue or period length, there have been little to no penalties. I've gone 3 straight games before in NHL14 without the AI committing a penalty. That shouldn't happen at default settings, but it sure as hell shouldn't happen with sliders maxed out either.
People are frustrated with EA. The "Why even play" is completely missing the point. People want to play the game. I want to get NHL15, but i'm not in the habit of just throwing my money away on something i won't enjoy.
People aren't mad that they won't get to spend the money, they're mad they aren't seeing anything worth buying. People shouldn't have to compromise on something they see as buggy and broken, or "Deal with it" as some would tell you to do. They should be able to expect that after a certain number of releases, some things will be fixed and improved.

Yes sliders are great IF ITS WORKING AS DESIGNED, BUT NOT EA's NHL

The reason why I play this game, perhaps just like you, I'm a die-hard hockey fan, not just for Vancouver Canucks but the game in general. If you put the name "NHL" in your game of hockey, I EXPECT that it should reflect, or at least close to the real thing, the way NHL play their game. I dont know how long you played this series, or play video hockey, but this EA's effort in improving the gameplay and mechanics is atrocious to say the least.

This game, if you are a casual gamer or just like to play games vs CPU/AI, sure this is cool, even above average game. But if you play like that of CAP or BaGM (multiple season) or Season mode, this game will easily get to you nerves. Same team plays the same as well as players. There are so many flaws in this game and EA continue to ignore them.

SO if you want to purchase this game...good for you. If this game tickles your hockey fancies...good for you. But for me, and I think some here as well, are just sick and tired of the efforts EA is giving for this game.
