Game Info

Celebrating its 20th year, the franchise that captured 22 ‘Sports Game of the Year’ awards has raised the bar yet again with NHL 11.

Powered by an all-new Real-Time Physics Engine, NHL 11 lets you create highlight reel moments as you experience adrenaline-pumping NHL action with bigger hits, broken sticks, and faster dangles.

Whether you’re beginning your career in the Canadian Hockey League, dominating rivals in the EA SPORTS Hockey League, or assembling Hockey’s Ultimate Team, any moment can be a ‘WOW’ moment with NHL 11.

Overview
  • Revolutionary Real-Time Physics Engine—Pioneering the next step forward in team sports video game realism, the all-new Real-Time Physics Engine brings real-world highlight reel moments in-game like never before. From face-offs to body checks, real-world puck and player physics trigger true-to-life reactions. Now anything can happen, including the ability to shoot and make plays while lying on the ice.
  • More than 200 Gameplay Enhancements—An all-new faceoff system, quick dekes, the new Hit Stick, and hip checks are just some of the many gameplay improvements that make NHL11 the most authentic hockey video game experience to date.
  • All-New Broken Sticks—Broken sticks now affect the action in more ways than one. After snapping your stick on a wicked slapshot or having it broken in two from a hit, the play is never dead. Kick the puck to your teammate or have your teammate pass you his stick if you can’t make it to the bench to get a new one.
  • Be a Pro Enhanced—For the first time ever, begin your career playing for the Canadian Hockey League’s Memorial Cup. Playing with and against licensed CHL players from the Western Hockey League, Quebec Major Junior Hockey League, and Ontario Hockey League, experience both highs and lows of junior league hockey action. Get scouted, enter the NHL entry draft, and see if you can become the greatest player of all time.
  • All-New EASHL Dynasties—The EA SPORTS Hockey League takes online play to the next level as championship seasons are awarded with banner-raising ceremonies and new user celebrations that allow you to rub it in the faces of your biggest rivals. Prep your team for their playoff run with an all-new Practice mode.

Nice. I don't like hockey very much. But might rent it when comes out.

On defense you have the ability to check either high or low. If you think Madden and hit stick (assuming you even play Madden), this feature has been around for quite some time.

I really feel that NHL from EA delivers every year and has improved greatly each of the past three years. I am really looking forward to this year's version with some of the changes (Canadian junior teams, Hit Stick). I wish I played enough EASHL to see a banner raised. Also, as a Flyers fan, it will be nice to have the Flyers as a default team in the online quick match.

No GameFace? I haven't seen this mentioned anywhere, but i assumed it would be in the game this time around.

Not trying to be rude, but people need to realize that those aren't all the features, you can't write a couple of quick paragraps summaries of the entire game and all its features. There stilll more to be released from E3 and the community day invites

I'm looking forward to NHL 11. NHL 10 was pretty good although i didn't get to spend alot of time playing it. Glad they added depth to the Be a Pro Mode. And looking forward to how this game plays when they release the demo.

What about goalie improvements!?
 
# 11 tabulaRasa @ 06/15/10 02:57 AM
How about fixing the suction board play. Probably the cheesiest part of NHL10.
 
# 12 wtbiyo @ 06/15/10 07:53 AM
Practice mode alone has been something EVERYONE has wanted for quite a while...quality addition there EA.

Ok, true, but why are you asking that here? They are never going to include a specific fix for a glitch on the back of the box game info/feature list.

New to NHL 11: No more freezes when you go to the club invites screen!

Seriously though, boardplay (as it pertains to the new real time physics engine for hitting) was something we spent a lot of time discussing at the Community Event, and it's definitely been improved since NHL 10.

And with a slick little tweak they implemented overnight to address one of the more common online boardplay-related gripes...

Another year.. I guess I'll post this again... I should just save it and do a cut and paste every year. WILL WE HAVE a FULLY functional online franchise mode this year with farm teams. Will we have a CUSTOMIZEABLE season length in our online/offline franchise modes 20-40-82 ???? I would rather have this than broken sticks and bunny hops. Will there be a noticable differentiation in players ??? Will sliders be available for all online game modes ??? Are we stuck with same lame azz online season crap?? Hockey Devs please model yourselves after the NCAA football team and NOT the Madden guys !!!!

"hit stick" in hockey is when you wack a guys stick to either knock the puck which he has loose or basically to interupt a play.
 
# 17 tigsbaseballfan @ 06/15/10 03:49 PM
it would be cool to be able to sign players from europe league (bring back khl also) when in dynasty or season mode, be able to download other nhl 11 players rosters (roster vault, mlb 10),more realistic rinks, be able to customize better, line brawls, linesmen + other ref,zamboni during intermission....

Hopefully, it's improved to a point where the guy isn't sucked into boardplay without putting up a struggle.

With apparently "Banner rising ceremonies" included into on-line dynasties...I wonder if that has been added to off-line as well? Neat presentation feature I'd like to have for off-line play as well.

At this point, i don't care how the game plays, the features are too sick. SGOTY
