screenshots are awesome, i wish they would show these kinds of angles off in the game. For example after an intermission have the camera at an angle to view the whole arena as the players skate out back out to the ice

Its really too beautiful not to show off in the game

God the attention to detail is crazy. I wish that other games had this.

Love the clay, I guess they couldn't get permission to get the nba/nets banners up there as well?

The attention to detail in the arenas are awesome but I can't help but feel annoyed that they went through all this trouble to give us an awesome arena experience but after goals scored still have the lame two man celebration. Seeing all the individual arena detail, mascots, and fan interaction kind if loses something when 3 guys just "ho hum" skate away from the goal scorer as if it never happened. Having the camera pan back to show a five man celebration in these detailed arenas they have us would be great

Yeah, FIFA has 10-man celebrations so you'd figure this would be implemented eventually. Also, increased post-freeze interaction around the net, not just two guys shoving each other around. Maybe next year.

Speaking of arena atmosphere, does Rexall Place have that gray ice that looks like it's illuminated by 40w light bulbs? (Just kidding Oilers fans!!! Sort of...)

No doubt about it, those screenshots of the arena's look great.


I also wish we would see shots like that more during the game though.
