  1. Despite its flaws, ‘Madden NFL Arcade’ packs a solid quick pick-me-up take on the pigskin classic. Football fans wishing for a more accessible ‘Madden’ experience now have a home. Until a solid competitor comes along, ‘Arcade’ is the best at what it does for the PS3.
  2. Madden NFL Arcade provides a nice break from the more serious Madden NFL 10, and even though it’s not without its share of minor issues, none of them are detrimental to the overall experience.
  3. Madden NFL Arcade does a great job of providing a more casual, arcadey experience for football fans that long for the days that NFL Blitz ruled the arcade football genre many years ago.
  4. Madden NFL Arcade is a very entertaining little game. It doesn’t attempt to be an NFL sim, so don’t buy it expecting one. The arcade feel with real NFL teams and players included is a nice combination, and at only around ten bucks this will be a great addition to your library that you can fire up and enjoy a few minutes of fast-paced arcade fun.

A great game, especially for such a low price. Full Review »

    Madden NFL Arcade is unpolished and light on features, but the core gameplay is so much fun that it is easy to overlook its flaws. The game Madden NFL Arcade is unpolished and light on features, but the core gameplay is so much fun that it is easy to overlook its flaws. The game is stripped down to the basics and has tons of fun power ups to add to the over the top nature of the game. The Madden games are generally too complex for me to spend time on, but the low learning curve of Madden NFL Arcade makes it the perfect pick up and play sports game. Full Review »
