Demo now up!. Apologies if there is a thread somewhere, the search didnt return any results!.
Very similar to 07 really. i only played once last night so i can't give a proper impression yet, but they do seem to have improved on the skill stick control as it seemed much more fluid which is a good thing, but doing real hard hitting body checks still seems harder than it should be but i guess that makes the game more realistic as you only get a few big hits per game in the NHL.
will be getting this game when it comes out as i get all the EA NHL games for soem reason
...never played this type of game but may give it a go (and read the rules !!!!!)
I think i'm right in saying you cant be penalised for icing when you are shorthanded, so whacking the puck down the opposite end of the ice is agood way off running down the time in the powerplay
