  • Summary: People with low attention spans seem to be the target audience for Madden NFL Arcade, a scaled-down game that turns the clock back to the days when you didn't have to take a week off work to learn team playbooks. This Xbox Live and PlayStation Network game is the kind of dumbed-down, old-time arcade football that Tecmo used to make, with just five players a side, a handful of plays to call, and no kickers in sight.
  • Pros: Strips the complexity out of the main Madden games, Good casual game for friends hanging out in the living room
  • Cons: 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

  • 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.
