RUNDOWN
========

LIKES:
- PAC-MAN gameplay with enough to keep the new gamers satisfied
- great graphic and sound design (if PAC-MAN was a genre, this'd be it)
- the graphs showing progress in levels

DISLIKES:
- i'm pretty sure i paid for this game, so why is it still trying to sell me more?
- not many choices for visual themes/effects (i mean i know they were trying to revive a classic, but can't they add bits to the game as well?)
- no classic mode (AT ALL. seriously, if you want random movemets from the ghosts, this isn't your day, they mostly follow you)

OVERALL: maybe get it at a special or something, but it's probably best to use you cash on something else first

I didn't care much for old arcade pac-man but this is fun! The graphics are really good, too. I want to build an arcade cabinet and get a pro joystick for this little game.

Wish it was 2-player somehow but it's definitely fun to compete with scores.

I'd got this game for years and out of all the games I have on my Steam library, this is the only game that I kept going back to because the controls are intuitive, the music is catchy and I'm enjoying all the DLCs and stages I can finish. It's repetitive in a good way that you'll have to redo all the missions and only have slight variations between each stages, but if you want to play a game that you can always come back to on lazy days, bombing ghosts and gamepad support, this is the perfect game to pick.


Pros
  • Intuitive gameplay
  • High replayability value
  • Bombs
  • Catchy tunes and cute sound effects
  • Compare scores
  • Mindless fun
Cons
  • Boring and better played every once in awhile
  • Repetitive missions
  • Music gets stale if just the base game

Get the game, it's worth every penny!

I have played very few other games that look this great, play this tight, and clench your butt cheeks as hard as this game does. This is game design perfection, and an absolute must buy for any fan of the twitch gameplay that made the arcades so great!

This is by far the best game of Pac-Man since the original and one of the best remakes in video game history. This game is much faster and more insane than the original. This will push hardcore Pac-Man fans to the limit. You ever think you'd play a game of Pac-Man being chased by dozens of ghosts and the game speeding up by about 50%? The correct button input is critical here.

It's Pac-Man, only on steroids and LSD. Everything about this game was made with love to celebrate the big yellow ball. This is the definitive version of Pac-Man, and I easily recommend this game. If you like comboing and fast-paced games, or if you're just a fan of Pac-Man, then you owe it to yourself to play it.

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.
