I'm genuinely impressed by how much I enjoyed this game. This fast paced twist on the original Pac-Man is very addicting and very fun to figure out. Most modes will start out slow (maybe even slower than the original), then slowly works it's way up to being one of the fastest, most mentally demanding games I've ever played. Every bit of focus is required to survive and get an enormous score. Turning around after collecting a power pellet to devour the 40+ ghosts that have been gathering behind me is so satisfying. This game is a staple what a good reboot/tribute game should be like. Enough to feel like it's still part of the same franchise, but with enough variety and new concepts that it's still a totally new and enjoyable experience. I give this game a solid 9/10. I would have given it a 10, but I found that the replays are super buggy and don't work correctly. Besides that, it's a great game. Deffinitely worth the $10 (or $15 if you bought it with all the DLCs like I did).

This literally fixes everything I didn't like about Pac-Man.

- Fast Gameplay, without being overwhelming.
- ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥t-death opportunities are kept to a minimum.
- Great, trippy graphics which are suprisingly not too disorienting most of the time.
- New gameplay mechanics like bombs and new ghosts that spice it up a little.

For ten bucks, it has a TON of replay value. Highly reccomended.

Good old Pac-Man, how can anyone hate it?
Although on pc its nothing like the old days it still brings back memories and is an enjoyable little game to have.
Not the kinda game I would personally spend hours and hours on but it also comes at a really good price.

The idea of online scoreboards is something old consoles back in the day never had so now you get to show off your skills to the world :P.

A solid 8/10 for this guy.

Fairly easy to get all the medals and achievements if you know how to click your arrow keys really quickly. Good game to have if you're going to go head to head against your friends.

I love me some good old Pac-Man. This game captures the fun of Pac-Man very, very well. I, for one, wanted that calssic skin incredibly bad. It took me quite a while to do so. But it was so worth it as I ended up just enjoying the game to the fullest. With a variety of stages and game modes, this game stays fresh and fun, with so much to do in it. My only problem is the DLC seems a little bit lacking, if I am honest, with the PAC IS BACK DLC just being a shotty advertisement. All in all, I feel like if arcade games are your thing, this is the best of the best.

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.

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.

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.

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
