The demo is great. The skating engine is completely overhauled. Now you have to deal with momentum and it feels much more realistic. Also for the first time in history slap shots feel like slap shots. Pucks feel like they have weight now. It's truly amazing. Cycling the puck is finally possible and fun!
Overall the game is a lot more realistically paced. They've slowed it down and it feels like you're watching a real NHL game instead of a video game.
I will be buying this the day it comes out.

I already ordered it from Amazon. 5 bucks off. Can't wait to download when I get home tonight.

One more thing, the game is beautiful. Player faces are amazingly accurate and the framerate is perfect.

Loved the demo. The Ducks just owned me on the powerplay, but it looked great.

When will they put all of the officials in the game? Where are the linesmen? Other than that, the game's great.

They masked it, now the puck rolls over to one side or the other and doesn't go in the net, have been getting a TON of those in my time with the demo, at least 3 in every 5 minute period I played.

I got one of those too. In NHL07 those would be goals. Now the goalie lays on his back and the puck in underneath him. I played only 3 games though.

I hope this is like Winning Eleven where no 2 goals are the same.

Have I mentioned that I hate you all.

Game should be out tomorrow by afternoon, but definitely on Wednesday.

I doubt it, it ships tomorrow, so it should start showing up at stores on the 12th in the afternoon.
