I love hockey and playing these games, and this trailer wasn’t interesting to me. The fantasy aspects of the game (Be a Pro, Hockey Ultimate Team, etc) are lame. But you should check out the real time physics engine and how the game uses a skill stick. Once you learn how to play, you understand how much the controls punish you for not being precise with your choices.

If your player is facing away from his pass target and you try to throw a cross ice pass across his body, well, unless he is a great passer, then chances are you’ll end up with a turnover. But if you take the time to correct his body position, then you can correctly execute the play.

While I get that someone without an emotional connection to hockey wouldn’t be necessarily excited for a new release of this game. But whether you are a fan of the sport or not, you have to respect what EA does every year in terms of advancing the control and gameplay aspects of the title.
