Xbox 360, PS3 2.5 stars out of 4 The NHL lockout may mean that no real-life pro hockey will be played this year, but there's certain to be lots of gaming on the ice this fall with "NHL 13." For this edition, EA has added more advanced A.I. that more authentically replicates the explosiveness, momentum and speed of the best players in the league. It's especially cool that you're now able to backwards skate at any time. The computer players also are quicker, smarter and display more true-to-life decision-making, meaning it's a tougher gig for newcomers. Sorry, gamers, you can't call Coach Q for pointers.
