NHL 11

21 Sep

I usually wait and ask Santa for the yearly installment of EA’s NHL series but peer pressure prevailed this time. After all the great things I heard and the videos I saw I had to go pick it up.

I am always impressed that EA can keep bringing new gameplay aspects to the NHL players. This year’s big addition was the EA Sports Ultimate Hockey League (EAUHL).


Players are dealt a pack of starter cards and are sent to build up their fledgling team of all-stars from there by either earning in-game currency through their play on the ice or by purchasing them with real world money. The setup is pretty dense and shouldn’t be traversed by those not willing to delve into some seriously minute details, but hardcore hockey fans are going to get a kick out of it.

Take your team online or train up offline and earn pucks to buy more cards. While my team is pretty terrible right now, I plan to work my players and maybe get a few W’s on the board. They are nowhere near ready for online play though.

My Ultimate Team

I do love the NHL series but my mind still seems to be on a another upcoming game. Can you guess what it is?

    Awesome! Ive always heard good things about this series of games. Ive tired a few of them before and sucked pretty hardcore so ive never really bothered playing them. I may give it a try at some point or another.
