Madden NFL Arcade


Madden NFL Arcade is, well, exactly what the title says. Take your standard Madden game and strip it down to one game mode, make the players look kind of funny, and put five players on each side of the ball. This makes for an NFL Street meets NFL Blitz...

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...

Review: Madden NFL Arcade


Madden NFL Arcade is the antithesis of the realistic, complex Madden NFL series. EA Sports' latest effort is more like a throwback to the glory days of arcade-style football games.

In the current economic climate, with studios suffering layoffs every other day, many publishers have stated a preference for sticking with established IPs that are almost guaranteed to sell well...

Madden NFL Arcade


Warmed-over, ahem, "extreme" football that leaves us yawning

Easy to jump in and play ; Controls are simple, too ; Lag-free online games

No real single-player modes ; No announcers, either ; Should be $5, not $15

Even so, for fifteen bucks we wanted a lot more game than Madden Arcade delivers. A bland on-field experience coupled with no single-player season/tournament/anything translates into another failed attempt at “extreme” football. Please, just give us...

Madden NFL Arcade


Long have I missed the days of the N64 NFL Blitz games. Since those golden years, I like to think I have matured somewhat; and with that maturity, a sim sports fan has emerged. But going back to my arcade football roots is something I have always been...

Madden NFL Arcade is a very approachable game for a majority of casual sports gamers. However, the game's issues make online play unbalanced and unenjoyable. And at a $15 price tag, the little you get just isn't enough. Should the game ever drop to...

Madden NFL Arcade Review (Xbox 360)


It's sometimes easy to forget that video games are a business like any other -- run, not by consumers, but by corporations and shareholders. Like many businesses outside of the video-game industry, many game companies have recently been forced to...

Great local co-op game. Powerups mostly fun. Full NFL license

Lacks modes, features. Online quitters unpunished. Inherits Madden 10's gameplay flaws

Madden NFL Arcade [Xbox Live Arcade]


Madden NFL Arcade is a five-on-five version of American football with exaggerated player models and revamped rules. All 32 NFL teams from the 2009 season are included, with both five-man squads trying to be the first to score 30 points. While you are stil

Feel the excitement of the NFL with a fun, fast-paced, 5-on-5 football experience. Madden NFL Arcade for Xbox LIVE Arcade brings the 10 best players from each of the 32 NFL teams on offense and defense together to battle it out on the gridiron. No...

Madden NFL Arcade


Madden NFL Arcade straddles the line between over-the-top arcade sports games and buttoned-down sims but doesn't wind up pleasing anybody.

Strips the complexity out of the main Madden games ; Good casual game for friends hanging out in the living room

Feels like a cut-rate Madden with an identity crisis ; Very limited number of offensive and defensive plays ; Not enough game changer power-ups to liven up the gridiron
