“So Damn Good”
Reviewed September 7, 2012

Great Arcade. It has new games, its got old games, its got games you have never heard of but you wish you had earlier. I had a great time here. But I do have one warning, if you go make sure you have nothing else to do for the rest of the day, because if you go you are gonna loose track of time and 4 hours will fly by without realizing. When I left my eyes had to readapt to the sunlight. Fantastic.

“Best Arcade In South Florida”
Reviewed May 21, 2012

I paid my first visit to Arcade Odyssey yesterday and WOW! was I pleasantly surprised. What a cool arcade!!! This is the one and only "True" Classic/Modern Video Arcade out there that I know of in South Florida. When I was growing up in Miami there were video arcades all over the place in the late 70's, 80's and into the early 90's from stand alone locations to places in the mall to Pizza Parlors and Laundromats. And sadly, those places disappeared until now! The "True" Video Arcade experience is back at Arcade Odyssey and does not disappoint. This is a place that will appeal to everyone from video game purists to little kids to big kids to parents with kids and even those that are a kid at heart.

Now, there's a little bit of something for everyone. You have the classic arcade games for those that grew up playing games like Pac-Man, Robotron, Burgertime and Joust, and there's the rider simulation games like the Sega Wave Runner, Nascar Car Racing and Tsumo Ball which I call the "Red Dome Battleship" artillery game. You have the first person shoot'em ups like House of the Dead killing zombies and the like. Then there's the Terminator pinball machines which are a lot of fun to play. And let's not forget the room dedicated to network connected PvP games with rumble seats where fans of Call of Duty can congregate to show off their skills. And of course the ubiquitous Street Fighter series video games are always the consummate crowd-pleaser. Now there's many, many more games to chose from. But what makes this place unique and not just another Video Arcade is the attention to detail and the fact that all of the games are in excellent working condition which is a rarity at most places with video games. And you can play video games only seen in Japan which is really cool when you belly up to a machine that has the original pricing of 100 Yen per play. And the best part is they rotate their games every month so it never feels stale and never gets boring.

And for those that like Japanese Anime there are flat screen TV's all around the place showing movies and you can also enjoy a Ramune Japanese soda with a cleverly designed glass marble as the bottle seal and a box of spicy Japanese potato sticks along with traditional Japanese candy.

As far as I'm concerned, this place is a must see in Miami no matter where you live in South Florida.
