not perfect but very good foundation
NHL 15 looked nice, NHL 16 played better than 15 but had its problems....NHL 17 is what we were hoping NHL 15 would have been. i cant speak for online play but the offline experience with gameplay customization is a major selling point. Yes the sticklift is broken but this will obviously be fixed via patch/tuner. Goalies arent perfect but they are the best they ever have been. Overall Nhl 17 is a must have as it is the best hockey game ever made.
