EA Vancouver has made strides in addressing long-running issues, but this feels like an incremental step forward, and the game remains hampered by AI and identify shortcomings.

Kat Bailey (USgamer)

2.5/5 stars

“NHL 21 tries to end the current generation on a high note, but legacy issues continue to hold it back. Its revamped Be a Pro mode is particularly disappointing, proving to be a disjointed, somewhat sloppy experience. It has its usual strengths, with online team play being a definite highlight, but longtime fans of the series will likely find this year’s entry eminently skippable.”

Andrew McMahon (Twinfinite)

3.5/5 stars

“NHL 21 lives up to the same quality of work it’s known for in previous generations for better or worse. While it does attempt to push the series forward, anything it does to elevate it to the next line falls short of scoring any significant points.”

John Cantees (GamingBolt)

7/10

“I appreciate the shots that NHL 21 takes at improving the formula, but at the end of the day, most of those shots are too little too late, and end up making the overall experience just barely better than mediocre.”

GAME INFO
Game Description / Storyline:

Gameplay in NHL 21 has gotten smarter, faster and a whole lot flashier. With innovative moves and massive improvements on both sides of the puck, players have more options than ever before to take control of the game and impose their playstyle on opponents. Recognize Revolutionary with Gameplay in NHL 21. A brand new Be A Pro experience gives you the chance to live the life of an NHL player, on and off the ice. Impress the front office, go early on draft day, and chase greatness as you earn your spot on the first line, compete for the Stanley Cup, and become the league’s next best. Recognize Future with Be A Pro in NHL 21. World of Chel makes it easier than ever to jump in, and play solo or connect with friends on your way to wins and rewards. This year, we’re introducing Ranked Seasons — where you’ll compete across each of the four modes to earn rewards and play in the new EASHL Club Finals.
