I had originally read this issue as a kid when it was reprinted in Classic X-Men and it's a story that has always stuck with me if only for the basic premise. It's a pretty wacky issue which sets up for an equally silly plot twist (that really could only have worked at the time this book was written) and all in all just a really fun read.
The premise of this issue is a bit whacky. But with an antagonist like Arcade that is to be expected. But the wackiness does make for some fun action. There isn't much depth to story but this issue is just pure fun. The X-Men get captured by Arcade and made to play is his twisted creations. The art is excellent again. All in all a very enjoyable issue.
