This is true.  We need verification if it was Ovechkin making the hits or not.

It's out and it's impressive.

I'll start by saying that it's only a shootout demo and is Oilers and Canes only but WOW!

Here's my mini review -

Graphics:
Really good. We all thought it would look pretty but I'm thinking this may be the best looking sports game ever. Everything is crisp and detailed. Uniforms are realistic tp the point that you can see the sticthing and patches, they even move move a bit annd react to player movement.

Controls:
If you've played Fight Night, you can see where this is going. Left stick for the body, right stick for your stick. This might take some getting used to but only after about 3 shootouts I was doing exactly what I wanted to do.

Gameplay:
While this could have gone in the graphics section, the goalie animations are spectacular. It's not only the realistic moves, but the transitions between moves that are fluid and natural. Goaltending and defense are always the weak points of hockey gaming and the goaltending looks really solid. Player movement is good as well but the goaltending is what really caught my eye.

Value/Replay Value:
Just kidding

I hope you all check this one out - The battle for hockey on the 360 has begun...

I agree that the demo is awesome!  The shootout is a ton of fun.  I just wish I could demo the actual gameplay...  also, I hope they dont have their game programed to end in shootouts a majority of the time.

It looks spectacular. However, since this is EA we're talking about, I'm waiting to see what stupid game design decisions they make that ends up ruining the game.

I can't believe I just downloaded a demo of a hockey game that only features a shootout.  Honestly, what's the reasoning behind this?  To prove the game looks good?  Because, mission accomplished...but I'm worried the reason they didn't release a demo of regulation-time stuff was because they had to make sacrifices (you can make it look prettier with only 2 players on the ice, as opposed to 12) AND/OR the game sucks.  It's EA, here, I can't afford to be optimistic.
