NHL 12 (PS3/X360)

EA Sports NHL 12 authentically captures hockey as it is played on the ice with more than 300 gameplay refinements highlighted by three key innovations: Anticipation AI, Dynamic Goalies and the Full Contact Physics Engine.

With Dynamic Goalies, players can make contact with goalies as they crash the crease and goalies battle through traffic in front of the net as they fight through screens to make saves.

New in EA Sports NHL 12 is the introduction of legends; nine former NHL greats — including Wayne Gretzky, Gordie Howe, and Mario Lemieux — are integrated into the game across virtually every mode, including the all-new Be A Legend Mode.
