Every year I have to tell people to give the American sport games a go. Madden, NBA, NHL… if you give them a chance they are so much fun, especially if you have a friend to play MP with. Last year I decided (for the first time) that I wasn’t buying Madden or NHL, but rather that I would subscribe to EA Access and get them there when they became available.
It was a good decision because, even though I didn’t play them at launch, they are still great to play months after. NHL in particular is brilliantly smooth and once you get the hang of it, and the rules for newcomers, there are few games which are as satisfying. Throw in some amazing production value, lots of modes and the Ultimate Teams section and you have a winner.
NHL 17 will be no different, I assure you and with even more features and modes promised, plus improved gameplay in all aspects, it is going to be another great year on the ice. The below official gameplay trailer showcases some of the new features and modes, and hopefully convinces more of you to give a try when it releases, or when it hits EA Access.
