I’ll start by saying that, if you’re a real Hockey fan, one that studies the game, you’re going to be blown away. If you’re a casual fan, you’ll still be impressed with the first gameplay footage from EA Sports NHL13.
You’ll really get to see the new skating system at work here, and it is something, but much more is revealed here.
