Madden NFL Arcade

Family Friendly Gaming
2 February 2013
  • Excerpt: Madden NFL Arcade is a 5 on 5 arcade style football game. Players have four downs to score a touchdown. The fields are not as long as the real ones. There are four offensive, and four defensive choices available. A slot wheel (editor: sort of thing) gives players various bonuses, or detriments. An example is the play is run in turbo, or ultra slow (molasses). Madden NFL Arcade is a very fast paced game where the focus is on passing.

Talking About Games
21 February 2010
  • Excerpt: 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. Madden Arcade brings back the wild touchdown passes, spine-crushing tackles, and high-speed gameplay of NFL Blitz and NFL Street in glorious HD.

Madden NFL Arcade Review

UGO
22 January 2010
  • Excerpt: Despite its immense popularity, EA's Madden NFL franchise has a bit of a problem when it comes to courting the average consumer: It's gotten way too damn complex. Hell, it's even gotten too complicated for me! I know the difference between a 3-4 defense and a slant pattern, but even I have a tough time parsing the myriad formations and immense, bloated playbook of the modern Madden experience.
  • Pros: Madden's complicated controls are too hard; looks, too real; and price, too high.
  • Cons: you're expecting an heir to Blitz 's arcade football throne or at least a title on par with Tecmo Bowl .

Game Over Online
11 January 2010
  • Excerpt: On defense, you will play with a lineman, a linebacker, two corners and a safety. On offense, you get your own lineman, a quarterback, running back and two wide-outs. The game is preset with the best five players from each team (in EA’s opinion). This is the team you’ll have the whole time. They won’t get hurt, so you don’t have to worry about protecting your players, and there is no option to substitute players into the game, as there is no bench.

Game Over Online
11 January 2010
  • Excerpt: 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 type of feel to the game. EA has taken America’s sport and created an ultra-accessible, fast-paced version.

Gamer Limit
9 December 2009
  • Conclusion: 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 $10, give it a shot.

  • Excerpt: It’s sometimes easy to forget that video games are a business like any other -- run, not by consumers, but by corporations and shareholders.
  • Pros: Great local co-op game., Powerups mostly fun., Full NFL license.
  • Cons: Lacks modes, features., Online quitters unpunished., Inherits Madden 10's gameplay flaws.

Madden NFL Arcade Review (XBLA)

Gamers Daily News
25 November 2009
  • Summary: Like I said, it’s great arcade football. They just forgot to put in the rest of the game before releasing it. Won’t win any awards, if it does, it’s rigged.
