Re: NHL 16 Available Today For Xbox One & PlayStation 4, Post Your Impressions

Just picked up my copy and began playing the introductory game with Tampa and Chicago. As soon as the second period started the choppiness that everyone is speaking of commenced. I don't usually come on here to say anything but it is LITERALLY unplayable. I picked up the Witcher used as well so I'll start that. In the mean time, there is a massive update that says I have four hours left? Hopefully this takes care of the frame rate issue.

Only had a brief time with the game. Made some sliders adjustment, and I'm pretty impressed and satisfied with the overall package.

I want to reduce the game speed, but I'm aware of the bug that causes choppiness problems. Otherwise, I've been able to alter the AI play from the pass fest we saw in a lot of pre-release footage.

AI still needs refinement, NZ pressure, and all the stuff that's been said already. I'm interested to see what EA does with patches this year. I'm pleased with the infrastructure in place now.

Mind boggling. Very frustrating. I turned down the speed tonight and got really comfortable. It played well at first, then about 5 minutes after I changed it, the framerate just died and it just chopped its way along... Very disappointing.

Not trying to bash EA, but I have serious doubts they really test these games. This issue was discovered within 5 minutes of me playing the game.

The update is ps4. I think its the eashl, 3-3 ot, united center, practice mode, etc.

Need a ps4 person to confirm, but if the update is there when they first load the game I would bet it's what I listed.
