NHL 14 takes the ice in a new way, and it brings with it retro and new players alike with NHL 94 Mode. Even if the menus are slow and the AI is stupid, 14 is still a strong outing that any hardcore fan, as well as the retro and new, will gladly pick up and play.

We like

  • NHL 94 coaxes new and retro players to the ice
  • Live the Life digs deeper into player's lifestyle
  • Fighting is a right, not a privilege

We dislike

  • Slow menus bog down RPG-like experience
  • AI is shallow and unsophisticated
  • Collision Engine simplifies gameplay
