Extremely good graphics, top notch response, variety of maps and designs, Really like the fact that it slows down when near death (although a little too easy, even on hard), but an overall enjoyable experience for the eyes. Just not to be played for 2 hours straight or else you'll end up seeing color everywhere o-o

Quality-9/10
Responsive-10/10
Variety-9/10
Price- 11/10

Really brings back the memories ;)

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.

If you're looking for the orginal Pac-Man game, you came to the wrong place.
But if you like fast-paced games with flashing colors, a crap-ton of ghosts chasing you everywhere, and the base mechanics of Pac-Man, but with different maps, modes, and songs to chew pellets by?
Knock yourself out.
But seriously you should get this game. Don't buy it now though. Only idiots buy games in full price.
Wait for a Steam Sale you dingus.

Last time I took Pacman for a spin was around 2004, when Pacman World 2 came out. Boy, did I regret that decision. Fixed camera angles and a difficulty that went up and down like a whack-a-mole's hammer ruined the game and I tossed it out the 3rd floor window. Funny thing is, that game came with additional versions of past Pacman games but I felt at an extreme disadvantage when it came to survival, whether you were to jump or not.

Red about this game and I realised I have been missing that drive to complete a game 100%. It either needed to be an extremely specific genre and game (Arkham Series) or something I could do in a week or so (Shadow Of Mordor). There was no feeling of replayability and a strive to perfection, like say, Wipeout HD. I now know that I am starving for arcade games like Burnout and this one.

A constant need to get better at this is ever present due to the ranking method. I have only completed Championship II with an S ranking and this has taken me a considerable time. It is extremely addictive to figure out the nooks and crannies of every course and trying to maximize your score by eating up a long chain of ghosts is the best way of saying ♥♥♥♥ you to these guys. It is revenge, pure and simple but as sweet as it is, it also has to be planned out. The patterns of the dots and the fruits appearing is something that has to be memorized for successful progression, not to mention that the game speeds up to ridiculous proportions. And if you get stuck, try watching someone else's replay, it's always helpful.

It's arcade, it's addictive for perfectionists and colorful as hell, something that's been missing from today's market. If it weren't for my army tour, I would have clocked 50+ hours already cause I am dying to finish this and get me GW: Dimensions.

An award-winning title for a good reason, Pac-Man™ Championship Edition DX+ is definitely the best Pac-Man game that has ever been produced, it's incredibly fun and never gets boring, even if you aren't really a Pac-Man fan, it's just simply that good.

This game offers you the chance to play classic (or not) Pac-Man however you feel like playing it, tons of variation, options, alternate-graphics and play-styles to choose from gives this game a really long lifespan and tons of replayability. There are game modes and challanges for almost every factor that exists in Pac-Man too, I'm pretty sure if you can think of a challenge, there is an option or game mode for it available somewhere in this game. There are also global and local leaderboards, ranking systems and many variations of maze-layouts to choose from too!

Whether you are a fan of the game series or not, I couldn't recommend this game to you enough, particularly when it goes cheap in the sales, pick up the All You Can Eat Edition if you want to add even more variety. This game is definitely more than worth the money, I would also recommend buying this over Pac-Man Museum (if you want a more modern Pac-Man that is) as the Pac-Man Championship Edition featured in that collection is vastly inferior to this version.

Oh wow, where to even begin on this one.

Pac-man has been one of my all time favorite games (instant top 3 in all time favorite arcade classics)
Whats wrong with just going around in circles all the time catching those ghosts? "because I ain't afraid of no ghost"

Pacman is known now for 35 years as the spiritual successor of the arcade world. If you threw a rock at someone in a crowd, about 99% of the time you've probably hit a pacman fan. How ever, after 35 years the original version of pacman has gotten rather stale. So what's so great about this version you ask?

This version is a revamped pacman experience. With all new puzzles, and all new levels you've got countless hours to waste in this maze chasing ghosts in all new ways.

To any new comer or veteran of the franchise I'd highly would recommend the championship edition.



CHALLENGE : Just try to see if you can hit 1,000,000 in the championship edition on expert level. Its not easy.



Now, you're probably asking yourself : Why should I buy this game? : One simple answer. Because its just fun. Its a great game to kill time and its just easy to get lost in trying to beat your highscore after every match (and then before you know it hours fly by)

Bought this for £2.99.
Expected a mediocre game which i'd play for an hour or so but would enjoy having in my library.

I was wrong.

Very amazing pacman game. Seems tough and challenging at first, but then you quickly realize how simple it can be. It's easy is really easy for those who are inexperienced, and hard is really hard for those who want a challenge. It's simple to rack up points (On the 10 minute Score Attack I got 2 million first try). It's new graphics but still gives that nostalgic feel. New maps and everything is nice, and I reccomend it to any pacman fans, and people who have spare 10-15 bucks and want an arcade classic. $13.99 is an amazing deal for this game.

You want to play Pac-Man? Because this is how you play Pac-Man. The classic arcade game you might've played all those years back has been updated to offer diverse ways of playing combined with leaderboards and different level layouts. For any fan of Pac-Man, you'll be playing this game alone so much, you'll eventually get arthritis because of how much you're carefully navigating the yellow chomper through these abundant yet glitzy mazes all the while avoiding those pesky ghosts.

A Review Mostly for me so I know I’ve completed the story, as well as feedback on the game.

My Thoughts:- A brill game for the Pac-Man fans, loads of maps and other modes of play, leader boards to compete with friends as well as medals and achievement’s. Get them Pills into Pac-Man and teach them ghosts who’s boss.

Achievements:- 12 of 12 (100%) Achievements Earned

What Could Be Added:- Not really sure what could be added.

Rating:- 8 / 10

yes i would recommend this game but after 30 minutes of playing i decided to look at the scoreboard, i noticed several scored of 2,147,480,000 and decided to watch one of the replays, it was a video of pac-man stuck in a corner for 1 minute and 40 seconds tossing bombs and getting killed by ghosts, the people who keep track of the scoreboard on this game need to clear out that ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥ to let real players into the top spot that way we have real scores to beat and not hacked scores, other than that this game adds a nice twist to an old favorite and is really a good buy especially when it was on discount.
