Top Critic Average
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.
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.
NHL 20 returns with a revamped braodcast team and new technology, like RPM, and the number of game modes makes this a must-play for sports fans everywhere.
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.

NHL 20 sees Franchise mode take a welcome step forward, while other areas have either remained the same or actually gone backwards. The new commentary makes it clear that different does not mean better, and all the slick new animations in the world can't hide poor AI. We feel like a broken record saying this, but the NHL series is in sore need of a comprehensive revamp.
If you’ve ever enjoyed playing a hockey game, it’s worth checking this one out. If you love the sport, it’s pretty much a must buy.
NHL 20 delivers fast, fluid, and frequent action on the ice, offering the best core gameplay mechanics seen on this console generation.
NHL 20 finally offers some forward momentum for this sports franchise, and though it's not all smooth as ice, at least fans have a variety of good reasons to lace up the skates again this year.
With the end of the current console generation fast approaching, one has to wonder where the NHL series goes from here because there’s no doubt there are still plenty of questions left to be answered.
