Goaltending needs HELP. Way too many weird goals go in for this to be considered a legit product. Scoring is easy ANYONE can do it with this game. There is nothing simulation about this game if you play online. The AI is borderline autistic at times and will put the puck in his own net. I love hockey but this series needs competition in order to push the dev team to make a better product. It's a fun game but NOT EVEN CLOSE to real hockey

Good not great

They added some new gamemodes and improved old ones. The game is very fun but the gameplay and controls are almost identical to NHL 16. If you are a fan of the NHL games it is worth the money.

Best Iteration of the Series to come to Next Gen

Any fan of the series must play this game. While there's still room for improvement, this is by far the most exciting year for NHL gamers since 2014. Not only does the game look amazing, but the gameplay has been overhauled to bring a very authentic feel to the controller resulting in a highly enjoyable experience on the ice.

what a joke

nhl 17 beta gameplay was such a refreshing pace making it more like actual hockey instead of the arcadisg play style for the online play modes and here comes the trail thru EA access and first in already feels like nhl 16. EA copied nhl 14 and said it was 15 and here we are again only this time i will get a refund and quit the EA nhl series. As a fan of the actual NHL this is not even close the beta was more spot on than the garbage NHL 16 1/2 EA is putting out again this year...good day

EA Access doesnt work

NHL 17 looks to be a fun and improved game from last year but after i pre ordered the game it says 1 free month of EA access, which works and i got the code, but i cannot play NHL 17 early for the 10 hours it says you can play with EA access though for everyone else it seems to work...

NHL 17 is great. EA finally listened to the community and created a gem. If you love hockey; you'll enjoy this game.

This game is nhl16 with roster updates. Graphics and gameplay are exact same. There are no new features worth buying. Wish I could go back and unpurchase

Almost the same as 16

Everyone says this but this game is absolutely nothing more than a roster and jersey update from last years game. In no way would i recommend spending more than $20 on this game if you own 16.

EA ACCESS Doesn't Work

Spent $30 on EA Access, $60 on the NHL 17 pre order, and now I can't even play EA Access. Thanks a lot!
