  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. I’d rather be playing this than sitting through another boring half-time show on a Sunday, or while waiting for a few friends to come online to play Left 4 Dead 2, and I’m looking forward to hitting the gridiron again.
  4. You will find yourself picking it up and having a blast if you have a spare 10 minutes and don't fancy a longer lasting game.
  5. While Madden NFL Arcade gives little attention to the single player game types it is rooted in sharing the experience either locally or online. The gameplay is easy and fun enough to lure in the non-football gurus as well as the seasoned Madden veterans.
  6. Pretty fun. It won’t stop me from occasionally busting out NFL Blitz 2000 for the Dreamcast once in a while, but I know it will be a hit when the friends come over to watch the NFL this weekend.
  7. A little expensive considering not many of us play American Football in Europe, but if you enjoy the sport and have a few friends then considering purchasing this as it is well worth it.
