Staying loyal to the AFL rules and regulations, Arena Football was aiming to keep sports junkies hooked on the juice during the off-season. However, unlike real-world NFL, Madden NFL 06 has no off-season, thus the need for another game is eliminated.

The visuals in Arena Football are noteworthy, but they sparingly make up for poor game audio and the less than impressive game design.
