    This is a great game. It takes the good parts of madden nfl and makes them into a user-friendly game. The game also gets roster updates, so you always have the newest rosters. This is a must buy.

    This game is perfect for casual football fans, or anyone who enjoys the more simple arcade style gameplay to the overly complex and sometimes confusing gameplay of the more recent madden 200X titles. A great game, especially for such a low price.

    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 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.

  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.

    At 1,200 Microsoft Points on Xbox Live and $15 on PSN, Madden Arcade simply isn't the bargain of the $10 NHL Arcade. While it's $5 more, the experience isn't appreciably better -- in fact, I'd peg it as slightly worse.

    It doesn’t have the depth of a sim, nor does it engage players fully as a standard arcade styled football game, but Madden NFL Arcade provides some amusing football action in spurts – provided that you’re willing to overlook some shortcomings. The controls could be tighter, the game changers could be harder to acquire and disperse and there could be a season or franchise mode to play.
