EA Sports, is the brand name of Electronic Arts, which creates and develops sports games. Over time they have released games like, NBA Live, FIFA, NHL, Madden NFL and Nascar. Many of the games are distinguished by the year in which they come out (IE: Madden 09, NHL 11 and so on!) EA Sports, also determined to make the gameplay as realistic as possible, uses real athletes names and likeness, as well as adding feature’s to the game that already exist in the live sport. By doing so, EA Sports games could be very addicting, with the ability to immerse you totally into the game.
Madden 12 and NHL 12 are the next two sports games ready for market with release dates of 8/30/11 and 9/13/11, respectively. EA Sports has added a new dimension to each game, bringing live action from the game, into the game. Examples of this are as follows: Madden 12 has added Real Time Physics and Customizable Playbooks. The Real Time Physics will provide crushing hits, while guaranteeing that no 2 tackles will be the same. The Customizable Playbooks is for the coach in all of us. It will bring a new experience and excitement to the game. NHL 2012 now has Full Contact. This means that everything in the arena is live. You now have the ability to shatter the glass with body checks, knock opposing players into the bench, knock off helmets and so much more. Goalies are live now for the first time. This enables the goalies to make sprawling saves, have the crease crashed by opposing players, knock the net off its moorings and last but not least…..Goalies Can Fight! If this isn’t already enough, they added the Winter Classic in Pittsburgh on New Years Day! The game is played outdoors and the weather conditions are able to be changed. You get everything that you could possibly want in these games, except a ticket.
EA Sports continues to create quality sports games, that are so realistic, that you feel like your part of the action. Each year they add the necessary elements to keep up with whatever sports game they are creating at that time. With all the sports games being created, I feel that EA Sports is miles ahead of the competition. The level of fun, excitement, competition and the way that they can immerse you into the game is second to none. For a high quality sports gaming experience, EA Sports in my opinion, is at the head of the class.
