NHL 20 Wishlist
– Till date developers haven’t created a dedicated online store. An online store could let gamers purchase New Jersey’s within the game and also buy teams from the rest of world.
– The game commentary is mundane and dull. The commentator lacks excitement and hardly expresses any emotion. Moreover, they come up with some recorded phrases only. Hence, it is a dire wishlist to witness new commentators with vigor and human feelings.
– The game should grant more choices to gamers. For instance, gamers should have an ability to re – brand ECHL and AHL team, customize in HUT, choose sponsors and place them in Franchise mode in the ice or arena.
