Demo is up up Xbox Live. I know what I'll be doing tonight. New features, for those that haven't been following (this is off the top of my head): - first person fighting view - manual passing (various degrees of pass assist, like FIFA) - board play(pin players to boards, pass with skates etc) - Slider presets to adjust between sim and arcade style play (casual, default, normal, hardcore), independent of difficulty settings - some improvements to online match making - supposedly massively improved goalie AI (1 guy working a full year just on the goalie), with greatly increased number of save animations - I think a new injury system - face-washing and rough play between whistles (can draw or earn penalties) - grinding forecheck (tired players will start avoiding being hit, causing them to lose the puck) - some new shot faking moves - shooting from knees - some fancy manager mode - improved be a pro mode - players will glove the puck down if it is going over their head, or will knock the puck to the ice There could be more, but that is what's coming to mind. Looks like it is going to be the most significant change to the fundamental gameplay (passing, board play especially) in a very long time. I'd say it's bigger than the skill stick. On September 10th, the game is out and I will commence to waste my life.
