    When you start Be a Pro mode, your aim will suck regardless of your controller. Also, the aim is a little more sensitive it seems, as holding to one side or the other for a second or two when winding up now results in shots that go wide more often than not. It's nice to see shots going wide versus picking the corner all the time.

    Read above. Circumstances have changed. I'm not buying an old version.

    It's OK. Basically extremely similar to last year. I don't play any of the other game modes so I can't comment.

    Not sure if I will even buy the real version. Probably.

    Nice presentation.

    Not sure if I would recommend running out and buying it right away though for people who know and adore 11. There are some changes so far (I only played one game), but it seemed to me personally that every player could hit - and hit hard - which is slightly unrealistic.

    Played my first game on All-Star to get used to it and had no real issues shutting down the Red Wings with the Sens (3-0 was the final).

    I made one trade - that was - spare parts Shannon, Svatos, 1st Round Pick, 2nd round pick and I think one other useless piece for Toews, so good to see that's still alive and well lol.

    Still, really nice fluid pace to the game. For the first time I'd say at this point and time, give me another week to tell you if you NEED to upgrade.

    How's Zibanejad rated in the game? Overall and potential I mean, if you don't mind.

    He's not in it, sadly. Not even on Djurgarden.

    You have to play with Shannon and Benoit on the Sens if you play online. No Filatov, he's in Binghamton. Konopka is a healthy scratch.

    Gonchar-Karlsson is the default first pairing.

    I think there is a roster update now, because when i did my fantasy draft for Be a GM (gonna wait for the roster update at the start of the season for my proper sens BaGM) I found Zibanejad. He's a 71 overall, with B- potential in every category. He's also a RW in the game. Then when I left the game mode, I went to check the Djurgarden roster, and sure enough he was there. No picture though. Claesson is there too.

    Ok they must have updated it.

    They did update the pre-release on the last day, too. Thank god I didn't have to play with Shannon and Benoit anymore.

    If anyone one has PS3, add me! ID= Big_Ev

    You haven't missed much in those 3 years. 09 was the best (if that's the one you are referring to).

    Here's a question -

    If I were to get it, PS3 or XBox360?

    EDIT: I'm asking about the better platform for the game, not better platform overall. Let's not get into that.

    I kinda prefer the 360 one but they are basically identical. It comes down to the controller you prefer.
