NHL+ right stick =solved
The AI is the worst I've ever seen...funny cause I say that every year. So it means the AI is simply getting worst years after years. EA are improving at getting worst.
I have zero complaint i turn off the commentary i adjust the sliders when needed . I dont play online i can update team rosters when needed. I dont care if my player cant have dreadlocks or a certain visor .i just take the team i choose trade my superstar players and build my team up from the bottom. Therefore I'm fine with this game i think its great!!!! Greetings from buffalo ny
Haters in comments are worthless incels
I would have preferred them fixing the eashl bugs were after finishing a game it doesn't even count towards your stats than conversation in be a pro.
LMAO I WAS JUST LOOKING FOR NHL 20 REVIEWS AND REALISED THAT 21 IS OUT WTFFF
How i can remove that yellow line near the scoreboard?
Just got this game despite having any knowledge about hockey - should be interesting.
I agree. NHL on the PS4/XOne has been shoddy. But still got this for Ovi! It's still fun but don't expect the best game of all time.
Literally the same f***ing game. Literally.
I tend to buy the game every other year so noticed a big improvement visually from 19. The game is adjustable enough to to dial back the arcade feel and I play the true broadcast angle which makes it look better. Rosters are outdated but will be fixed. Couple of other bugs but they’ll be fixed too no doubt. Glad I updated.
No wonder why a lot of people play this game drunk or high.
The fact they call it the kucherov is an embarrassment
Nice retro edition 🙂
i honestly thought they were using clips of nhl 20 to compare.... but nope its all 21, legitimately looks exactly the same. Just a $80 roster update . smh
No competition No reason to continue buying a new nhl game every year best to wait like 3 years then get the new one because, by then you’ll feel a substantial change over just minor changes and you’ll be saving money my suggestion is since titles wanna be shared on other consoles and composition is near dead why should a company try to impress its like if your winning the champions every year people eventually slip up in areas and go in cruse control instead of trying to make something more of it or different and new why should they ...there making the money and you guys buying into it stop buying the newer version every year and I believe things will change and you’ll get more content there not in control we are
It looks exactly like NHL 20 after the last update
It's about time Be a Pro mode finally got an update.
So if anyone gonna talk about the tutorial? They have new moves this year and none of them is in the tutorial, thats terrible. Also funny how gamespot gave it a 9/10 and then doesn't make a video and post it on INlabel like cowards. Can kinda tell they got bought out or something. Anyways, AI goalies are like spider monkey goalies, user goalies feel better this year. Poke check is a bit over the top, one timers is basically the only way to score on AI goalie. Switching your player in hut or online versus is frustrating as ever. Hopefully they patch some of this, wait that would be the next game right lol
Other developers need to make a hockey game
I’m not buying this until they bring back the All-Star game 😢
He failed a persuade roll!
Let me guess. They added a 1 to the name and subtracted a zero. Same game, new title like always.
I'm very disappointed with the game since it's the same thing every year since the15-16.. Hopefully, the next-gen on the PS5 will be better for the NHL 22..
This game is actually different than the others imo
FIFA has the same problem, passing is way to accurate and fast which makes the pace of the gameplay very high and arcadey
How are the menus? I play exclusively BeAGM mode and the Menus on NHL20 were agonizingly slow.
NHL 2k PLEASE
Thought I was going to purchase this years version but after watching this. I’m staying away like I have been for the past 6 years.
Me 2, i stick with NHL 17 got 19 with gold but didnt extend gold so cant play 19.
I freeze and disconnected 5 to 10 times a night
Game is the same every year, just like cod, but everyone plays that every year hahaha
Gonna stick with 20 till this is dirt cheap 👍
Game is garbage
It's still better than Madden though.
This review was horrible...
I cant understand why people are bashing EAs sports games so much, they make improvements to the games every year, its like gamers expect a hockey game to be completely different than it was last year, people have unrealistic expectations of games in general, that is for sure.
Bring back NHL 2k
Honestly couldn’t tell the difference, looks like 2020
If you want a true honest review from someone who has played hockey and has played NHL games since n64. Nhl 21 is nhl 18 with 3 dlc packs. The online eashl is the same 1 timers galore and the gameplay is the same. Only thing I will give them credit for is be a pro other than that this game is 2 out of 5 stars tops.
"It makes you feel like hockey."
My biggest issue is that you can get beat by a player that is less skilled by them just b lining it to a corner and throwing a perfect cross crease pass one timer to beat you continuously while letting the ai play as the defense for them.
It’s literally the same game as nhl 18
Where the hell is franchise mode? What a worthless review.
Did the fix the "Big hit = Instant Fight"... Even if that player has to skate from a completely different area zone instead of whomever is in close proximity... EA needs to lose their license to Madden, FIFA, NHL, UFC, STAR WARS, and many other... Holding these titles hostage is not the way to earn revenue
Its more ARCADE?! NO WAY! u can change settings for that each game depending on what type u wanna play? My n my cuz play 1 series and a coin toss on arcade or regular mode.
Does NHL 21 have all the updated rosters following free agency?
When EA stops handicapping lower ranked players in online VS then i will give a damn until then I could care less. I get they want to make the game more exciting but why play people when the computer makes up so much of what happens. Everytime you get to 750 they will hand you 10 losses in a row to 500 ranked players, its so lame.
Fair review, happy to see some reasonable critique to the yearly formula.
I’m shocked they put that much time & effort into BAP. Imagine if they would’ve done this 3-4 years ago, it would be looking incredible at this point. It is a bit repetitive but is much more enjoyable to play. I’m surprised they did this much with it being the last game in the console generation. Gameplay is definitely a let down with little to no improvements from last year, guess it could be due to it being the last game of the generation. I’ll echo a popular opinion and say that the lack of a competitor is evident this year as it is every year.
Looking at the highlights of this game, took me awhile to realize it's footage from the new game. Looks identical to NHL 20 lmao
The only thing I dont like about this game is that teem USA uniforms are wrong and have been for as long as I can remember you would think they could get that uniform right
STOP EA’s MONOPOLY ON NHL GAMES!!
How many times they have to remake this game.
Cmon give it at least 8
sports games are for playing with friends
Didnt even know that a new NHL game got released until i saw this video
Yeah I had to look it up lol
This is not an EA problem anymore folks.This is a YOU problem. Step one of recovery is admitting you have a problem.
Nhl 21 be a pro storymode enough said sorry people didnt get what they wanted but i finally got what i wanted
I actually like the game, weird I know
Eeeyyyy @arcaderegiment made it in!!!
Biggest problem with sports video games in general is the amount of athletically challenged people trying to get a video game to replace actually going out and playing the game and then bitching and complaining that it doesn’t, news flash, IT NEVER WILL LOL
There will never be a major sports title rated. 9 or more. If you are a hockey fan, you will love the diversity in NHL21. And it is no surprise that IGN would rate this game low. Be a Pro mode findnjf I
I find the game cool and enjoyable, Way better than last years so I got it
How does a financial heavyweight like EA think that some static images with dialogue options are going to cut it for a career mode? Why do people keep buying this garbage, guaranteeing next year will be the same low effort showing?
Lmao at 1:34 I’m on the away team at the start screen. We won btw. Gg to whoever captured this though 😉
Nice dub 👌
Nhl 13+14....ea sports.... Go back to where it went wrong at nhl 15 and bring us that next Gen nhl 22 next year please
In 3v3 is it your created player you use?
You can fake svech tho so it useful
Thumbnail player looks like geralt. 🤣
Jesus Christ, licenses the NHL out to another f n studio.
I mean, the criticisms aren't wrong.. But, man, turn the difficulty up from rookie and you wont have 90% passing.
The NHL games have become too unrealistic.. again.
They added some dekes, honestly I wish they removed some dekes. It's toe drag and deke overkill. I'm having fun with be a pro but let's be honest its not anywhere close to a story mode of nba2k. It feels more like an update of nhl20 then anything
The puck handling is garb now
Bring back 2K!
Looks like a ps3 game.
Nhl messed up when they took out OTP
They need a competitor or a reboot. NHL is booooooring
So far FIFA 21 has the highest aggregate score among the sports games
This game is still the best NHL game ever made lmao
I just looked at your channel haha sorry man. keep making content
@mb36 sure because ea hasn't made games in the past and neither has 2k or nhl hitz and those stuff.. are u slow or something
because its the only hockey game.. lol
If I want arcade hockey I fire up NHL Hitz 03. If I want sim hockey I.... wait.
This is the first time since 1998 I'm skipping buying this game. I played the alpha/beta/brandedDonyouDareTakeScreenshotsOfThisMasterpeice NHL 21 and it was enraging. I was so pissed I only played it that night. The damn 40GB download or whatever just wasted my time. Minimal tweaks. Same crap. Sick of it! Monopolies ruin everything.
Haven’t played an nhl game since the ps2 so I hope to get back into it this year
why is the net made of steel?
I only pre-ordered this for the Happy Gilmore POP! Figure. I’ve never played NHL before. Trying to figure out if I’ll keep it or Re-sell /refund it
@X Marks The Spot keep it well worth it
@BeTaTrEv217 No worries. I too preordered for the Pop! 😆 Debating wether I should keep or return game.
@X Marks The Spot I actually ended up keeping it haha, wish I could give you an answer though
If you returned it did you have any trouble doing so because the bonus was a Pop figure?
Last hockey game I played was on sega & I loved it. I was going crazy with Wayne Gretzky 😂. This game looks pretty fun. Again, I haven't played a hockey game in years so the recycled gameplay wouldn't matter to me.
Yeah last hockey game I got was NHL 11 on 360 so I will probably be blown away. The Sega games were amazing by the way. Still play them also especially tecmo super hockey and NHL 94-96
Better than nhl 20 tho
Wtf is NHL
The game is the same fking thing every year and YOU CANT PLAY A ONLINE VERSUS WITHOUT THOSE LAGG OMGGGGG SO ANNOYING TOTAL WASTE OF MONEY
Mine never lags that’s you
@samuska123 hmmmmm, mines connected and my game never lags. Have you try to reboot your internet server?
@Tag Thehash it is connected to my xbox and no other game lag
dude connect your ps4 to your ethernet cable.
I bought a discounted NHL 20 earlier this year - the first time I’d played it for a few years. I literally played it twice before deleting it. The commentary actually made me feel anxious and when Snoop Dogg made an appearance, that was it for me. From what I see here, there’s nothing that makes me want this. Sports games have hit their peak on PS4.
@AlphaOscarRomeo ohhhh thats how you meant it. Yeah definitely agree. I thought you meant the best sports games in general have been on ps4 and wont get better next gen haha
@Act Nasty They have peaked on PS4 have they not? My point is buying any sports game on PS4 is not going to offer you anything different anymore.
