I don't get it...

After a week of playing this game I am in awe of how lazy the developers are. Be a Pro mode for instance. So no option to choose an actual pro and be that person throughout their career like every other damn sports game allows you to do in their career mode.

No career stats... seriously? How hard would that be to add it, just like every other damn sports game out there.

Drafting/player development. Dear gawd, if you don't get a top ten, usually top 1 player in the draft and put them on your nhl team's line from day one they NEVER develop into jack ****, so franchise mode is a waste of time past a few seasons when all the current players have started to fade and there are no even decent free agents to sign, which doesn't really work either if you play with a salary cap.

Holy hell, after years of playing Madden I am in shock at how hard EA is laughing it's way to the bank every time some idiot (like me this year but never again) buys this game.

And as I'm bitching about this my son informed me that they don't care about guys who play the modes I do, it's all about online gaming to cash in on the online access fees...

Sigh...

Have you tried 3's? It's funny because they show you these different NHL stadiums you can choose to play in. But after you select one, you still play in a generic looking stadium! What was the point of playing to "win" those stadiums??

I have not.

The thing is, every sports game is catered to online play to cash in on online access fees, but somehow this is the only game that totally ****s in it's pants for anyone who plays the offline stuff.

I'm not even going to bother with it anymore, I just feel like EA stole money from me.

Ha, you just wait until you play EASHL 6vs6, have a multiple goal lead going into the 3rd period, make 19 saves (as a goalie) including many scoring chances, and then watch the game "tilt" for the other team to win. This is a common occurrence.

Dude, the games has been out for six months. You are describing exactly what everyone here has been saying about.

EA didnít steal your money. It was your mom handing allowance to someone not smart enough to do an ounce of research before you buy. Blame her.

Because I love NHL 20, but I could have told you you would hate the game. They made it for me and others with a similar want from our sports games.

Not sure why people that want a different game but it. Almost as weird as those that actually spend months discussing the game and why they donít like.

Itís common with players that choke. They are good at finding blame anywhere but themselves.
