Until NHL13 proves otherwise, NHL10 is still the best game released since the Xbox360/PS3 came out. NHL13 may be really good once it hits the shelves, but I really hope they don't put a crappy tuner set in it that makes it NHL11 Version 3.
I agree that NHL10 was the best. NHL11 and 12 drastically slowed down the game by making your players turning speed akin to a tug boat, even at 99 agility, and therefore gave you only two options to gain the offensive zone against competent D... loose puck deke, or dump. In other words 11 and 12 greatly diminished the role of reflexes in favor of loose puck dekes.... *** mode. Not to mention that in 11 and 12 they disabled the option to invite your friends to your OTP (online team play) room in an attempt to force people into clubs. The net result of this is that I make less friends because it is so hard to meet up again with someone you have met when you have to communicate over f'in on screen keyboard PSN messages to try and meet up in a lobby room that may or may not be full. In short, EA is lame and needs some competition. </endrant>
Oh.. we were talking about player ratings?? : D Datsyuks rating is spot on....
