I bought this game today from the Boxing Day sales, but I haven't opened it yet because I recall hearing that the game menus were extremely sluggish, and a few other glitches seemed to be really bothersome. I've heard they've patched a few issues since release, but I'm wondering which ones still exist.
For the most part, I'll only be playing local (offline) co-op Season / Dynasty modes with my friend, and the occasional Exhibition match (there is no BaP or online use for me).
So the glitches that are important to me revolve around: menu navigation; Season/Dynasty features; broken tuner versions or broken options; game saves; and actual on-ice play.
I only play BaP so I'm not sure about glitches in other modes.
........okay!!! I know you said you do t play BaP but I need to rant.
If you play as a goalie in BaP there are some shots you have zero chance of stopping. And the sad thing is you know exactly when it's gonna happen. The defenders on your team will do several short passes right in front of you until a opposing player jumps in and takes it and scores. I watched my defenders STAY in the d zone with the puck while the forwards waited at the blue line. They passed to eachother 6 or 7 times when they were 10 feet apart until a forward from the other team skated between them and took the puck. He rushed me and scored by shooting under my left arm...while it was to my side.
This was with a goalie I created with max stats to test out the goalie mode. It happened in 5 back-to-back games without fail.
/rant --- Welcome. You will experience a tingling sensation and then death.
CPU defense can push you over, from behind, and steal the puck...if someone were to push you while you're ice skating- you would most likely just skate faster, not fall on your back. You'll know what I'm talking about when it happens to you.
