Electronic Arts goes all-out to bring you a game that so closely captures the experience of an NHL game that you'll swear you're watching the real deal. A completely revamped skating engine coupled with a dynamic AI system combine to deliver puck-slapping realism to the palm of your hand. Vary your speed on the ice – just like reality – with the ability to move from skating smoothly to sprinting after the puck and down to gliding along the ice.

The adaptive On the Fly AI provides as challenging, realistic feel with opponents setting screens and attempting to spread the defense or charging rebounds on offense and smoothly shifting to defense where it'll attempt to close lanes, clear the puck or just plain get physical down low. The AI will adjust to your style of play - kill and patience will be rewarded while being over-aggressive could cost you the game.

The in-game announcing duo of Gary Thorne and Bill Clement do more than provide color commentary, they'll provide hints about how the opposing team is shifting strategies. The Create-A-Play feature lets you generate about 70 different plays to match almost any situation on the ice – just like in training. The ability to deke has been added to the control system allowing you to control where you point your skates and the puck to play around a defenseman. Every AHL roster has been added, enabling you to call up players and Goalie Mode puts you between the pipes for an entire game. Online leagues with full stat tracking are accompanied by the ability to play three vs. three to truly prove who has ice in their veins.
