About this deal

Last Chance Puck Movement adds another layer of authenticity and excitement to gameplay with 500 new animations related to player contact and description plays. We are so impressed with the build quality of all Sonos products, we offer an automatic 6-year extended warranty on all Sonos products at no extra cost, giving you complete peace of mind. Use new Stumble Actions to nail desperate moves that make the highlight reels, turn an errant shot into an opportunity to shine with Loose Puck Plays, and keep the puck out of your own net with Enhanced Goalie AI. Still, it’s Ultimate Team, predatory in its execution to keep us all purchasing and digging through packs to find the best players, who remain artificially rare by design.

This translates to the players too, meticulously defined down to freckles (where needed), precise jersey stitching, and visors gleaming in the light.

NHL 23 completely revamps crowd reactions and adds women IIHF players and new desperation moves, and it all works splendidly to create not only the best hockey game in a generation -- but one of the best sports games ever. NHL 23 features new X-Factors like Trevor Zegras' "Skilled Up", Sarah Nurse's "Relentless", and AI upgrades that help AI-controlled players utilise their X-Factors for more impactful and realistic contributions on the ice.

Those also look impeccable, with an entire crowd waving glow sticks as a laser light show beams onto the ice. The NHL 23 X-Factor Edition comes with 2 base games for the last-gen consoles and present-gen consoles. Franchise mode has a cool new customization feature but largely pretty vanilla and not any better than last year. We have a dedicated Fraud Prevention and Response Department working 24/7 to ensure safe transactions.Franchise is getting even more robust with unprecedented customization, giving you new ways to forge your dynasty. However that failed to last, as the men’s team started losing, so now I could only rely on the women’s team to win every year.

Growing up in Canada, there was a time in my life when I could count on watching both the women’s and the men’s teams for Canada achieve gold in the IIHF.NHL 23 does bring a slew of improvements, though it more or less falls in with the in-between years, especially when considering that the biggest changes should’ve been old hat by now.

The refinements have definitely made improvements to the on-ice gameplay, making this the most enjoyable installment in years. Ultimately, while NHL 23 isn’t a step backward per se, the move forward is so small, so minuscule, that it may as well not have moved at all.
