I'm at odds with myself as to what to do in the following situation. I don't have a lot of money, but I'd like to buy NHL 12. However, the cheapest I can find it for is $50. I've also checked out prices for NHL 11 and they're all around $30.
My question now is: is it worth the wait for NHL 12 to come down in price (say, below $40), and buy it then, or should I just settle on NHL 11? Are the differences in the games huge enough for me to wait (i.e. is NHL 12 that much better than NHL 11)? Mind you, I've only played the NHL 12 demo, I haven't bought/played an NHL game in a long time (even though I'm a huge hockey fan).
if you're a hardcore hockey fan nhl 12 is the way to go. they made small improvements that make the game feel even more like real hockey. the succeed in this game you have to think and react like a hockey player. im using strategies my coaches used to teach us to play this game. im blown away by it.
I almost skipped 12(see my other post) and I'm so glad I didn't. Can't put my finger on it but like the other guy said, you have to use real strategies and it feels great to swing the puck around the zone and maneuver for a shot. Big difference, I'll never play 11 again. I'd skip eating out a few times and buy 12 now.
