The Game Guy
EA Sports' award winning hockey franchise is back with its annual release, and this year the skating and movement has been completely revamped. The new skating system called "True Performance Skating" uses a new skating engine that takes into account a player's speed, size and momentum. Larger players can no longer stop on a dime and will drift out of a sharp turn depending on the athlete's size and weight.
Skating backwards with the puck is achieved by simply pulling the left trigger. This provides the opportunity for brand new skating animations and entirely new facet of offense.
