Worst NHL yet

I’ve played every NHL since 06 and I have to say this one is by far the worst. I’ve had the game 1 day and I already wanna tip my hair out. I can’t poke check anyways without tripping them and you get a penalty every time u touch another player. I tried avoiding touching the other team to avoid penalties but then you get your butt kicked. This game needs a major redo and I’m highly disappointed in this game. Do not bother buying unless you wanna get extremely frustrated every time you play it.

Trash

I love the fact that the games take 30 mins to play because there’s 20+ penalty minutes for each team. I rate this game 2/10 stars.
