This is the best PAC-MAN version I have played since the original, although it has a bit of a twist. All the game modes are time based so you could have a 5 or 10min run at a score, or have a specific challenge like how many ghosts you can eat in one go or how quickly you can collect a certain number of fruits. There is a ton of maps and PAC-MAN themes you can unlock too, although I wish the classic theme was unlocked by default.

It feels like an authentic PAC-MAN game; it has all the sound effects you would expect, good soundtrack and responsive controls. You need those responsive controls as it gets really fast when you survive longer! To make it more forgiving, you do have bombs and a slow motion "bullet time" effect giving you an extra split-second to make the right move. Even with these tools at your disposal there still an excellent challenge for your reflexes; Online leaderboards as well to challenge your friends :)

One thing that could definitely have been left out is the Facebook medals to earn in-game; this should not be part of the games' achievements! At most it should be an option for those who want to use FB, not required to get all the in-game achievements nor plaster the icons with a 'Share' tag till you do share it!

Facebook farce aside, the game itself is a great trip down memory lane introducing a modern twist to the PAC-MAN legacy.

This is probably the best 3.75 I have spend this year. No words can describe how much I enjoyed it. If it's on sale, it's a steal and you should be arrested for buying masterpeices at such low prices.

Before I begin to explain myself why I highly encourage you to buy the game, I would love to say that I am a huge Pac-man fan. I grew up playing Pac-man acardes since I lived in a small neighbhorhood with an acarde not to far from my house. Walking to school, I would spend 25 cents to play Pac-man. So, to play a modern Pac man game that does everything exactly right and BETTER just brightens my heart.

This game simply does everything right, and if you love pac-man as much as I do, you will quickly agree that this is your favorite purchase.

To begin with, the music is fantastic. Reentrance( DLC song) is probably my Video Game music of my Year almost beating DuckTales's legendary "The Moon". It's very techno-ish. I am not usually a fan of this type of music, BUT surprising, I instantly fell in love with it. It does its job right of making you feel very intense as your heart beat raises as the game rapidly gets FASTER. It's freaken intense and the music overall just enchances the experience. MUSIC DONE RIGHT.

The game offers the original calm relaxing game we all know love in stunning beatiful visuals. There are servals skins and colors to pick from! From 2D outlines to fully 3D. There even Dig Dug! Just look at the screenshots! They're the perfect colors and visuals for this game. There is simply no complains about the graphics. HOWEVER, there is no resolution settings, and I believe it runs at 720p.

In addition, Championship Edition DX+ is able to convert a unviserally claimed game, which is played for calming and relax, into this instantly fast, suspenseful, intense game that is can be VERY addicting. This is where the game shinies the most. Besides the usual collecting orbs and trying to get high scores, now they included a rate of speed, bombs, and slow down feature. Being honest I hated them. I felt that it made the game too easy. BUT, as soon as the game blasted to 40 speed of rate, the game completely changed as I grateful for the new features. Now, when you're close to a ghost, the game slows down, so the player is allow to make better decisions on where to move next. In addition, if you're about to die due to being trap, you can use the bomb feature to destroy all the ghost. I try as much as possible to avoid the bomb, but I still enjoy using it as it can be a lifesaver to achiveing a higher score. Overall, if you love fast gameplay, you will love this game. At 50, the game went soo fast that my eyes couldn't catch up. However, I eventually got used to it.

My favorite feature is the Free mode where the player is allowed to set a time limit. It's basically like a time attack and your goal is to see how many points can you can obtain. I am a college student who has been dying to find a game where I can pick up for 10mins and return to homework. I've even played it on campus as many commented saying its "pac-man on acid" or "What is this sonic?".

Overall, there are a TON of gamemodes. I could explain them all, but its just something a player has to try on their own.

To conclude, I'm glad to see a new Pac-man game isn't just clone of the original with HD fancy graphics. To those who would rather play it on a TV Pac-man console or on a flashgame, I'd like to mention that the game introduces so many new features and visuals elements that it entirelly changes everything, and you'll get a FAR better experience than playing it on a flashgame on TV console.

I can see a TON of effort put into the game, and it simply stands out. This is by far the best Pac-Man game you can buy on a console or PC.

This is the Pacman gameplay you know and love with a twist. The additon of ghost chains makes the classic Pacman gameplay way more intense and addicting. Combine that with amazing music and a wide variety of visual layouts and you have one little fun-filled package. The game is on the short side since you can unlock all achievements and modes in an hour, but just like the original pacman, you can play this in short bursts for as long as you want.

Pac-Man Championship DX+ is a hell of package. It’s super stylish. There’s a bunch of different art styles for the different maps. Some are glossy and 3D, some are pixelated and retro. All of this is layered on top of a great soundtrack of electronic dance type music that really helps you to zero in and focus. It’s a bit trance-like to be honest! (Oh hey, that’s probably trance music, isn’t it)

Then, you get to the game play modes. This is where the true hook lies. Much like it’s grand father from the 80’s, the game play is simple. each map has a series of challenges, score attacks, time attacks and ghost combo’s. Some last five minutes, some last ten, while some are just a matter of ‘collect X many apples’ to complete. All of the modes are straight forward on what the want you to accomplish and soon, you’ll find yourself revisiting the maps over and over just to out-do your previous score.

DX+ does have a scoreboard where you compare yourself to your friends scores on steam. This is another carrot to keep you going back to improve. The only real beef I have with this one is that the scoreboard functions are pretty clunky. It’s not always clear on how best to compare your scores, but the game itself is so addicting, you’ll keep on playing regardless if you’re frustrated without competing.

Man, I love this game.

This is pretty much good old Pac-Man on drugs. Lots of modes and levels, lots of visual styles (both with and without its DLC) and a pretty kick ♥♥♥ soundtrack. Not much else I can comment on. If you like Pac-Man you will most likely love this game.

Very straight forward achievements for mostly trying all the modes at least once and some of the features. There are four achievements tied to getting certain scores on the score attack modes (5 and 10 minutes), but they are quite easy with some practice as I was I able to do them and I am very much a Pac-Man noob.

Time to 100%: 1-2 hours
