Do you like pac-man? Do you want to feel like a champion?
This game is basicaly the game you played as a kid sped up with more ghosts and modes than you know what to do with making it challenging and fun.
This is definetly a great game however the slow motion that happens when your about to run into a ghost feels like a cheat at times but the game is still without a doubt enjoyable.

Meanwhile...while Ubisoft can't even make a proper Tetris remake...

This was a title that took me from surprise. A friend had gifted me this game, but I simply set it aside. I now regret not playing it back then. I just thought, well, I played PAC MAN before. What could this game possibly offer? Turns out, this Championship Edition is still the PAC MAN that everyone loves, but with some adjustments...and I absolutely love it.

Story:
Umm...there's this guy called "Pac-Man". He's trying to eat all these dots while being stalked by ghosts.

Gameplay:
Oh man, I did not expect this game to be so much fun. It is still the "you have to collect all the dots and avoid ghosts, but like I said "with some adjustments". A new mechanic is a bomb that Pac-Mac can use to clear ghosts within range. In the original Pac-Man, you pretty much committed suicide if ghosts came at you with no place to escape.

Another neat feature for newbies like me is that there is a slow motion effect when you are about to make a mistake. In Metal Gear Solid V, time would slow down if you were detected to give the player a "second chance". Same idea here.

There are modes such as time trial and 5 & 10 minute modes for you to play. There are also a lot of boards to choose from if you want a different layout to play on.

There are leaderboards to see how MLG you are against other people in the world.

When you eat ghosts, it feels extremely satisfying to clear a whole row of them :)

Sound:
Sound effects still stay faithful to the original. Pac-Man eating dots and the sounds ghosts make are still the same. The soundtrack is something you will love if you are an Electronic person. (Pac Rainbow has got to be my favorite to get my adrenaline going).

Is it worth $10?:
I'd recommend grabbing it when it's on sale. There's even a demo you can download to give the game a try.
It might take you around 2-3 hours to complete all the achievements. Even then, there are still lots of board to play on so you can still have some fun. From what I see, the DLCs add some extra boards, skins, and soundtracks.

While this game doesn't entirely capture the magic the original had, this is the closest they've come to recapturing the magic. Racing around and giving Inky, Blinky, and the others a hard time is just as enjoyable and the bombs are a nice new touch even though I rarely use them. As for the DLC, I highly recommend all of the DLC for re-play value and the Dig Dug and Racer-X skins are just fun for nostalgic purposes. I'm not sure how much this game was when it originally came out but these days you can usually grab it for sale for 1-5 dollars during Steam and Humble sales and it is easily worth 1-5 dollars, especially since its usually the version that contains all of the DLC.

I highly recommend this game to children of the 80's who spent all of their quarters playing the original at arcades, bowling alley's, and pizza joints.

Fun game with lots of different levels and designs. Either I got better at Pac-Man or this is easier then the original game. Good game to sit down with for a few minutes or a few hours.

Achievements are easy to get 100% completed.

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.

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 Pacman, you may want to look somewhere else.

But I still recommend it.
