    This game is not worth it anymore. They need to do major work with the skating and the gameplay mechanics. It just looks unnatural to me on the ice. Madden needs the same type of upgrade to make it look more realistic. Skating/Running are most important aspect. This is what NBA 2K and The Show are so good at pulling off.

    Little Caesars Arena is not accurate.
