Review

After having time with the many game modes of NHL 21 to explore all of its changes, we've come up with our final review for the game.

You can read over the full review here!

The biggest positives this year are certainly the new Be A Pro Mode changes, and with the new attention to HUT with returning seasonal events, it also gets a nod.

For negatives, there really isn't too much bad to say about the game.

All in all, our final verdict is 3.5 Stars (out of 5).
