1. NHL 12

Omschrijving

De National Hockey League-serie van EA vervolgt haar langdurige traditie met NHL 12. Deze game zorgt weer voor de nodige spannende ijshockeywedstrijden. Met alle NHL-teams en verscheidene arena's kun je jezelf omhoog werken in de wereld van het professionele ijshockey.

Nieuw in NHL 12 is de Full Contact Physics Engine, die het fysieke contact tussen twee spelers realistischer in beeld moet brengen. Ook kun je als de goalkeeper spectaculaire reddingen inzetten. Verder kun je je uitleven in de Winter Classic, een jaarlijkse wedstrijd die op nieuwjaarsdag buiten gehouden wordt.

Conclusie

EA Sports heeft goede zaken gedaan met NHL 12. Het spel is goed ontwikkeld, doordat de ontwikkelaar goed heeft gekeken naar de realiteit van het ijshockey. Het is ze gelukt om de game zo te vormen dat elke gamer het spel met plezier kan ervaren. Het enige grote minpunt van de game is toch wel het korte online seizoen… Maar ja, niet elke game kan perfect zijn.


Wat is HOT:

- Grafisch een pareltje
- Gameplay is net zo goed
- Variatie in modi
- Lekkere sound


Wat is NOT:
- Online-functie is minder

NHL 12 is a huge game completely jam-packed with modes and gameplay features. Naming them all and going through everything would take this review into New Yorker Magazine word-count. And that’s a good sign, especially for fans of the series and of hockey in general. If you purchase EA’s NHL offering yearly, keep on keeping on. And if you’re like me, a fan of the sport who has strayed away from the series in recent years, NHL 12 gives you plenty of reasons to get back into the game. NHL 12 has its problems, to be certain, but most of what it does it does so well that the series persists as a fan-favorite nearly 20 years after its introduction.

8.0
Presentation
NHL 12’s menus can be occasionally confusing, but the sheer amount of content here makes that acceptable.

8.0
Graphics
For representing such a fast-moving sport, NHL 12 looks great. Animations occasionally border on laughable, unfortunately, which detracts from the experience.

8.0
Sound
The commentary works great (although sometimes inaccurately). A decent soundtrack will get stuck in your head, a staple of EA Sports’ games.

8.5
Gameplay
If you love hockey, you’ll love the way NHL 12 plays. Intuitive controls let you delve right into the experience. Everything in terms of the control scheme just makes sense.

9.5
Lasting Appeal
If NHL 12 is your cup of tea, you’ll be busy for a very, very long time.

8.5
OVERALL
Great


Gamespot geeft hem een 8,0:

"Little things mean a lot in NHL 12, which subtly refines the best arcade hockey game ever made. "

The Good
- Accurate simulation of real NHL hockey
- Subtly improved defensive zone coverage and anticipatory AI
- Expanded CHL play lets you really get into your major junior career
- New Be a Legend mode taps into a limited slice of NHL history

The Bad
- Very few major differences from NHL 11
- Some of the new defensive AI exposes problems with the offense
- Inelegant incorporation of the new Winnipeg Jets.


NHL 12 doesn't push the envelope, but there are few gripes with what EA Sports has put on the ice. This is a safe sequel that doesn't advance the franchise in any significant ways, but the tweaks and new features buff up a game that was already shining like a freshly flooded sheet of ice. With that said, owners of NHL 11 have to ask themselves if taking some shifts with Wayne Gretzky, playing more seasons with the Ottawa 67's, and skating around in the snow is really worth $60.
