As someone who has never played an NHL game, I picked it up following the Quick Look and have been having a blast. It could certainly do with a more detailed explanation of some of the game rules and mechanics but the core gameplay is great. Alex's review is spot on. The game itself is fantastic once you get out on the ice but the stuff around it - menus, career modes, tutorials etc. need some work to make the game more accessible for new players such as myself. Worth a look for sure.
