Great game, not perfect though. if the community was big enough for an actual matchmaking this would be my favorite game.
+If Hockey had super powers... and a huge, hexagonal puck... and less players on the ice....... and no physical play..... this would be it.
+You can strategize, do stuff like dump & chase, can be offensive or defensive... can do set plays can practice 1v1 2v1 2v2 2v3 3v3..............
+You can do some super long stretch passes that are extremely satisfying when they hit.
+A lot of deking involved. A lot of it.
+Very simple. WASD, space, shift and the mouse buttons and you're golden.
+Playing defensively is just as effective/more effective than offensively (I'm trying to say both work well so it's not "too much offense" or "wayyy not enough offense")
+Very, very fast-paced play development (kind of slow movement though, without implants)
+Extremely easy to learn, extremely easy to get better
+You can join teams make teams beat teams and even lose to teams.
+Tournaments every Saturday to Wednesday for guaranteed human 3v3 gameplay.
+Stream every day for guaranteed human interaction.
+Veterans are very friendly and always willing to help you learn.
-Since it's Early Access, there are bugs. Unfortunately, some bugs are game-breaking and lead to goals and can single-handedly cost you games or win you games (for example, a shot too hard on the post sometimes counts as a goal. Or VS's right click shot on Hiro's Ult goes in and out of the net and doesn't count)
-Goaltending, once you're a good goalie, is too easy. Sure, VS and Hikari have strong shots but other than those 2, every shot is a pass and if you're positioned correctly you should make the easy save. Also gets repetitive a bit, you don't really have to do that much as goalie, it's not like in hockey where the goalie is like a monkey in the cage, or anything you're just moving and rotating tbh.
-2v2(goalies not included) means very little strategic depth. You can do plays but you can't have a set system like 1-3-1, 1-4, 1-2-2, 3-2, etc.
-One of the players in this game is way too good and can beat the next 3 best players with bot teammates almost (Actually I'd genuinely want to see if he could). Too far ahead of the game :(
+/- Every 5 levels you get a free skin OR a free hat, chosen completely randomly. This means everyone has multiple skins. So skins have very little value... But free skins and hats! Whoever could complain about this? ;)
All in all, the positives far outweigh the negatives.
I suggest you get this game and tune in every day on Spearheadgames' hitbox tv channel and meet the community, maybe join in the tournaments and find out what this game is all about.
