    I made this account just to express my views on this game. It is amazing! Every time I play 3 on 3 with friends we laugh the whole way through, until I win. It is the most consistent fun I have ever had with a game and 3 on 3 has stood the test of time. I don't no what compelled me to buy a hockey game, but I'm glad I did.

  1. This tongue-in-cheek offshoot of EA's core NHL sim is a smooth zamboni ride that mixes goofy gameplay with razor-sharp control, just as "NBA Jam" did when it pioneered this genre over 15 years ago. [Mar 2009, p.83]
  2. NHL 3 on 3 Arcade can be fun in the right hands, albeit in very short bursts, but hardcore hockey fanatics aren’t likely to enjoy this simplistic title very much.
  3. Varying levels of seriousness in the users that gather to play 3 on 3 NHL Arcade in ranked or unranked online matches creates a fresh, party-style atmosphere that works within the confines of XBLA.
