Imagine you woke up in a maze, filled with ghosts that hunt you without hestiation, you somehow end up eating yellow dots from the ground till you end up taking a bigger one, you find around 20 to 25 ghosts behind you waiting to devour you, but all of the sudden they start to run away from you, your senses say that they look, smell and taste good, until they find themselves inside the stomach of the hunted.

100/10 this game never gets boring; unless you hate games like these, which is a shame.

I can't recommend this game enough. It's amazing. Even if you're not the biggest Pac-Man fan on the planet, this game packs a ton of excitement and challenge into it. It's not like the classic game where your goal is survival. It's more about how high you can score in the time given, and the drive to keep getting a little better each round is so overpowering you'll find yourself saying "just one more round" for hours on end.

PRO:
+ New mazes and a few bits of extra content(Championship III, Big Eat, Mountain and Highway II)
+ Leaderboard
+ The core of the game is the same
+ New visual themes
+ Achievements on steam
+ Achievements and medals can be posted to Facebook if you are so inclined
+ Electronic soundtrack

CONTRA:
- The social integration often doesn’t work
- In order to gain 3 of the medals, and thus the classic Pac-Man skin, you have to post to Facebook.(The fact that Pac-Man CE DX Plus has the audacity to require Facebook posting to unlock medals is bad enough)

CONCLUSION:
While playing you will be lost in the game and trying to better your score, but take a step back and there is a brilliance to Pac Man Championship Edition DX Plus that often goes unnoticed.

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.

TL;DR: Worth a purchase, especially on sale; DLC is terrible and adds no value to the game

A worthy successor to both the originals and CE, I found my self addicted within miniutes of playing and planning out strategies for increasing my high consumed my waking moments. The visuals while excellent, sometimes interfere with the gameplay and make it difficult to decern the locations of certain elements, mainly ghosts. This is rare and one gets used to it quickly.

A few negatives:
-They should have made medals into achievements as well.
-Rampant cheating on the leader boards
-Completely inconsistant ghost behavior, almost random
-DLC is absolutely lackluster, not worth the money

This game is fun. Its faster paced then the classic version of Pac-Man.
It is also good gameplay, like how you can grind around the corner, and the game slows down when you to close to a ghost.
Its just like the classic but better graphic, and levels.

I spent far too much time with Pac-man Championship Edition when I owned my 360, so it's great to see the next evolution of the game here on Steam. It's worth a play just to see what they've done with the classic Pac-man formula!

I'm hooked after just one game. PAC-MAN with bullet time?!? Snakes style ghost chains?!? Post game stats and graphs?!? This looks really addictive and really dangerous. This is a worthy reboot of a classic title.
