About this Article

Most hockey fans would agree that last year's "NHL 12" video game was pretty close to perfect. But that hasn't stopped the producers at EA Sports from trying to improve it.This year, the improvements in "NHL 13" include even more realistic skating with more than 1,000 new animations. Player control is better, and the artificial intelligence more closely mimics what you'd see on the ice if you were watching a real game.
