Pac-Man: Championship Edition takes the classic Pac-Man gameplay, and lets you choose how you want to play it. Whether you want to use new maze setups, play by new rules, or use new graphic styles, Championship Edition offers all that and more.

You want to see how quickly you can eat up fruits within a time limit? There's a Time Attack for that. Want to score as many points as possible within a certain time span? We've got a Score Attack just for you. Want to see how long you can eat ghosts without losing your oppotunity to do so? Say hello to Ghost Combo. And with the leaderboard function, alternate maze layouts, grading system, and more, the possibilities and replay value are practically endless.

In short, if you like Pac-Man, but want to set your own rules, then this is the game for you.

One of the best Pacman games ever made (Ms. Pacman 3D on PS1 is a masterpiece) and after you ace the achievements you are still only a third of the way through unlocking the tables. Infinite replay value, truley. I love showing this game to friends and playing a few tables to show them why I speak so highly of it. Fascinating graphical effects, infinite difficulties for every table, at least 10 tables without DLC, great music, great soundtrack DLC's (I bought a few, no regrets), fascinating themes that affect every layer individually, global ranks where every millisecond from every trial counts for table ranks and individual challenge ranks. There's even some DLC skins for a Dig-Dug or RadRacer expierience. Like most things on Steam I bought it on sale to justify buying a few pieces of DLC throughout its life, but it on sale if you can to do the same ;D

Get it, if you're into the whole "global competitive" thing. The point is not to beat a level, but give it your best, and seeing how I got into the first 2000 overall, people barely try. Too bad, it's actually fun and worth your money.

Extremely good graphics, top notch response, variety of maps and designs, Really like the fact that it slows down when near death (although a little too easy, even on hard), but an overall enjoyable experience for the eyes. Just not to be played for 2 hours straight or else you'll end up seeing color everywhere o-o

Quality-9/10
Responsive-10/10
Variety-9/10
Price- 11/10

Really brings back the memories ;)

I never really got into classic pacman. I played the arcade machines occasionally but was really bad. I picked up this game on sale because it looked like it had a little more depth. I think this is the best version of the game, Then again I never played the original much. This game adds some "wubs" to the "waka-waka". It also features a unique "bullet time" like effect when you get close to a ghost. Pretty neat little game. If you like score attack and competing with your friends this is the best it gets :)

Neon Lights, Ghost Chains, and a game that spans way back to the retro days of quarter-popping action. Pac is back for a ghost-gobbling frenzy. Gobbling ghost chains makes you feel epic.

You get a number of modes. 5 minute marathon, 10 minute marathon, time trial shorts, time trial marathon, and a challenge to see how many ghosts you can gobble in a single Power Pellet charge. Can you beat my scores?

Problem? It's a bit easy in difficulty and may feel rather tedious at times. One thing it lacks is "Plain Vanilla" Pacman mode. If you want Pacman with a twist, this is for you. If you want plain vanilla elsewhere, you may want to look somewhere else.

But I still recommend it.

An award-winning title for a good reason, Pac-Man™ Championship Edition DX+ is definitely the best Pac-Man game that has ever been produced, it's incredibly fun and never gets boring, even if you aren't really a Pac-Man fan, it's just simply that good.

This game offers you the chance to play classic (or not) Pac-Man however you feel like playing it, tons of variation, options, alternate-graphics and play-styles to choose from gives this game a really long lifespan and tons of replayability. There are game modes and challanges for almost every factor that exists in Pac-Man too, I'm pretty sure if you can think of a challenge, there is an option or game mode for it available somewhere in this game. There are also global and local leaderboards, ranking systems and many variations of maze-layouts to choose from too!

Whether you are a fan of the game series or not, I couldn't recommend this game to you enough, particularly when it goes cheap in the sales, pick up the All You Can Eat Edition if you want to add even more variety. This game is definitely more than worth the money, I would also recommend buying this over Pac-Man Museum (if you want a more modern Pac-Man that is) as the Pac-Man Championship Edition featured in that collection is vastly inferior to this version.

Last time I took Pacman for a spin was around 2004, when Pacman World 2 came out. Boy, did I regret that decision. Fixed camera angles and a difficulty that went up and down like a whack-a-mole's hammer ruined the game and I tossed it out the 3rd floor window. Funny thing is, that game came with additional versions of past Pacman games but I felt at an extreme disadvantage when it came to survival, whether you were to jump or not.

Red about this game and I realised I have been missing that drive to complete a game 100%. It either needed to be an extremely specific genre and game (Arkham Series) or something I could do in a week or so (Shadow Of Mordor). There was no feeling of replayability and a strive to perfection, like say, Wipeout HD. I now know that I am starving for arcade games like Burnout and this one.

A constant need to get better at this is ever present due to the ranking method. I have only completed Championship II with an S ranking and this has taken me a considerable time. It is extremely addictive to figure out the nooks and crannies of every course and trying to maximize your score by eating up a long chain of ghosts is the best way of saying ♥♥♥♥ you to these guys. It is revenge, pure and simple but as sweet as it is, it also has to be planned out. The patterns of the dots and the fruits appearing is something that has to be memorized for successful progression, not to mention that the game speeds up to ridiculous proportions. And if you get stuck, try watching someone else's replay, it's always helpful.

It's arcade, it's addictive for perfectionists and colorful as hell, something that's been missing from today's market. If it weren't for my army tour, I would have clocked 50+ hours already cause I am dying to finish this and get me GW: Dimensions.
