NHL 15 -Game Saga Review

nhl-15-xo-european-box-art

We recently had the opportunity to review NHL 15 from Electronic Arts. As a continuation of the NHL series, NHL 15 adds some new features and gameplay modes. There is also what seems to be a  redesign of user control that makes the game more challenging. They did this in 2014 as well so its hard to keep track of what the game was originally like. Want to know more? Read on for our full review.

Graphics - 8/10 – Graphics are good and continue to get better. The game looks and plays great on my PS4

Sound/Music - 9/10 – The NHL series has won many awards for their music and soundtracks. NHL 15 falls right in line with great sound effects, awesome game commenting and great music soundtracks between games.

Gameplay - 8/10 – I have played each one of the series since I remember them first coming out in 1993. Progressively gameplay has gotten better each year however there have been a few years where EA made major changes and I didn’t feel it was for the best. NHL 15 is one of those as they introduced new physics into the gameplay. I find the game lacking in control and found it much easier to play in NHL 13. But hey, that’s just me.

Story – 10/10 – What can I say, win the game. Okay online modes offer multiplayer matches in 1 v 1 and even team play. If you are playing by yourself offline then you can enjoy season mode, and GM mode. Many game modes to choose from beyond the basic run for the cup!

Challenge – 8/10 – So it’s kinda hard to rate the challenge factor of this game but here goes. Challenge is generally good except I have noticed the cheese factor can come into play and it seems to happen more often than it should. I mean things like outshooting your opponent 40-10 and still losing 3-0.

Replay Value & Fun Factor – 9/10 – Overall a great game and super fun. I get so much replay value from these games that I have to give it a full rating. When I am not dancing around after beating some dude down online, I’m screaming and punching walls at a recent loss. I mean highs and lows lol

Buy It Or Not? – Try the Demo, Buy If You Like It! – Yes, but it if you haven’t already. Especially if you like hockey!

Available for xbox, xbox one, ps3, ps4, playstation

Overall (Average) – 8.6/10

EA brings us more bad news with yet another delay. But at least this one isn’t pushed back to 2015. This time, it’s BioWare’s Dragon Age: Inquisition. The next entry in the Dragon Age series will be getting a delay of approximately six weeks. The game was originally scheduled for release on October 7th, but is now scheduled for November 18th in North America & November 21st in Europe. This information comes from the official site and Mark Darrah, Executive Producer of Dragon Age: Inquisition. He didn’t go  into too much detail about why the game was being delayed other than to say that the team needs time to polish the game. He also said that they wanted to “strengthen the emotional impact of the Hero’s choices.”

And yet another title gets delayed until 2015. EA has officially announced via The Battlefield Blog that Battlefield Hardline has been delayed until early 2015. Their reasoning? They want to work more on the multiplayer, single player, and making sure the launch process goes smoothly. Karl Magnus Troedsson, DICE VP & Group GM, describes these things as: Multiplayer Innovation, Single Player Story Depth, & Stability. Basically, he said that the team were taking player feedback received during the beta and wanted to use that to improve the game and because of this the team needs more time.
