There have been years where I’ve questioned whether the NHL franchise was worth the price tag. This isn’t one of those years. RPM Tech isn’t just a fancy marketing term, it’s been backed up with tangible changes to the core movement system in NHL 19, and the gameplay feels more honest because of it. With the World of Chel, I expected to yell like an old man who hates change about how the kids were ruining everything.
If you skipped NHL 18, then this game will be an even bigger leap forward for you. If you’ve never played a hockey game before, you can feel assured that the ponds and stadiums of this game will be accommodating. EA’s NHL 19 is a sports simulation, a fantasy league, a social hub, and a comforting arcade game all at once, and that is quite a thing to accomplish.
At the end of the day, the level of polish from games like FIFA and Madden just isn’t here. Even so, there’s a significant amount of fun able to be pulled from specific modes like Threes and Franchise, but some visual elements, a dull career mode, and questionable menu designs really hamper the overall experience.
