Is pretty damn good.

Nice review. I'm just loving this game.

But there are some bugs cropping up in HUT that is pretty much ruining it for a fair amount of people now. Basically, your goalie ends up playing as a sixth man on the ice.

And one of the issues you mentioned in the review, which was an issue last year, can be best illustrated by one of EA's own blog posts on the game.

They have been going through each league and talking about the ratings, but seem to ignore that there is no spread in the ratings. Too many teams have the same OVRs. What I don't get is how they can post this blog and not notice how FUBAR it is.

But still, on the ice, this is as much fun as I've had in a game. I just need them to fix the HUT, and I will be as happy as possible. The ratings are apparently how they want them to be.
