NHL 20 has some minor issues but plays a fun game of hockey. RPM Tech 2.0 is a revolution for the game’s controls, eliminating most of gamer’s complaints, at least on that front.

When I sit down to play a sports game it normally isn't for very long, but NHL 20 has had me playing for hours and hours. I didn't think I would want to spend a lot of time playing in the World of Chel but with the inclusion of the Eliminator mode for Ones and Threes, it has me hooked. NHL 20 is available now on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One for $59.99 USD. I love the new modes and hope you will too, but you don't have to take my word for it.

Must-have title for the hockey fans, which is full of content and which have improvement in character control and targeting. Live commentaty and graphics are also great, but if you already have NHL 19, there is not much reason to update to this new one yet.

Any NHL fans know that the latest NHL game is a must by. There are some tweaks from 19, but maybe not enough to satisfy the hardcore player. CHEL and Be a Pro fans should be satisfied, unless they play other sports games and see the lack of story or depth that characters can have. Even with these gripes, NHL 20 still stands as an amazing sports game that will continue to have no competition.

EA has made the headlines a lot this year, but when it comes to their sports games, they know their stuff, and NHL20 is a prime example of a fun game that sports fans can sink their teeth into. Just don’t expect anything groundbreaking.
