It's an over-priced, bare bones collection of Pac-Man variants with a dull, grindy gamesroom customization element.

Ms. Pac-Man was even cut and sold as DLC. Cheers Namco.

Go with Championship Edition DX+ over this.

This has Pac Man, Super Pac Man, Pac Attack, Pac Land, and another Pac game or 2. Ms. Pac Man costs extra.

Its barebones emulation, with few options. I wish the speedup versions were available for Pac Man and Ms. Pac Man.

I got it for 75% off and it was worth paying that much to me.

Its a good time waster and fun in short bursts.

Game Rating: B-
Pros:
-Several classic Pac-Man titles in one collection
-Eight stamps to unlock in every game
-Unlimited continues and other little additions
-Online leaderboards for each game

Cons:
-Doesn't include the good Pac-Man Arrangement game
-Ms. Pac-Man is DLC for some reason

The specs on the Store Page are quite a bit off, I should add.

Namco has officially lost the right to complain about losing business to emulators like MAME.

The menu is unintuitive and clearly not designed for keyboards. People use those for PC games a lot of the time, and they're a valid input method even for super complex games like Pac-Man.

The game is locked to 1280x720 resolution. With my 1920x1080 monitor, this means it's letterboxed and the picture is distorted. Fullscreen is also forced on, bypassing launch commands. I think that needs emphasis because that has to be an aspect of the program written in and passing the inspection of at least one or two supervisors, tacitly approving something as bizarre and completely unnecessary as locking fullscreen in a final product.

I can't tell if this is all because of some kind of lazy porting of a collection made for the iPad or something, but these are not problems people should be running into in 2014. It's worth noting that none of these things are issues with unofficially built emulators, which double-downs on how pathetic this package is. I feel ripped off and would ask for a refund, but those don't exist, putting publishers beyond accountability in the Steam/Origin era.

10/1/2014 EDIT: So uh, Namco Museum 1-5 just came out on the NA PS Store, which led me to play some of these games again. One thing led to another, and it turns out I was completely wrong about something: the "stuttering" the ghosts do sometimes in Super Pac-Man and Pac & Pal is apparently intentional behavior. I have no idea why, but that's that. Multiple sources seem to confirm this. Now don't I look like a jerk! That said though, I'm still preeetty sure Ms. Pac's sprite isn't supposed to jitter like it does in her game. Correct me if there's an explanation for this or if I'm crazy.

Also, something I neglected to mention, while it's true that shutting the arcade cabinet off for most of these games would delete the scores, most past collections of these games would save the scores when you quit anyway, as if it was left running until you came back. You can still see your top score in the leaderboards, this just bothers me for some reason.

I still don't think this is an ideal compilation, but credit where it's due, my review wasn't entirely accurate and I apologize for that.


Original Review Follows:


How do you mess this up?

I love Pac-Man, I really do, but this is not a very high quality collection. Let's go game by game, shall we?

Pac-Man, Pac-Mania, Pac-Attack, Pac-Land, Championship Edition, and Battle Royale work as intended, as far as I can tell. Pac-Mania looks really washed out and some of the music sounds like a garbage disposal is going off, but hey, it was always like that. And of course, Pac-Land is like, some kind of shoddy MS Paint platformer. It's alright. A smaller version of CE is included in the superior and faster paced CE DX (The Championship 1 stage), which is already on Steam, so if that's what you're after, you should probably check that out first. Battle Royale is best played with friends, having no proper scoring system (each player is assigned a title like "Most Pac-Man Eaten," or "Won Most Rounds"...etc etc.). There is no online component to speak of.

Some of the games seem to have emulation problems. In Pac & Pal, sometimes the ghosts freeze and jitter in place. The same thing happens in Super Pac-Man. I somehow doubt this was intended behavior. In Ms. Pac-Man (which, by the way, costs $5 to download after March) the player's sprite seems to wiggle around when heading up or down.

And I just want to take a minute to talk about Pac-Man Arrangement here. You may be thinking it's THIS game, but in fact it is some other, uglier, sort-of related but also not related at all type 3D game from the PSP Namco Museum, with some tedious bosses and slow freakin' ghosts. I have no idea who could have looked at both of these side by side and said "Yes, this is the better version." Why not include both Pac-Man Arrangements? Why are there two games called the same thing in the first place?

The menus are okay. You can unlock badges from getting achievements in the games, which themselves unlock character models and maybe other stuff, I don't know; I haven't played long enough. Each game has some options, but no option to turn off the really bright borders around the screen. Not a deal-breaker in itself, but odd.

So then comes the matter of price. Is $20 worth it for these games, and then $5 additionally for Ms. Pac? Considering Namco has released many much more fully featured, and properly emulated collections in the past for typically similar prices, I'd have to say: unfortunately, no. Heck, if you can navigate the Japanese PSN store, you can find all the old PS1 Namco Museum collections, and those are still as awesome as ever, complete with actual "virtual museums" to walk around in filled witth all kinds of obscure pamphlets and magazines and such. The version on my phone is better! And as far as I'm concerned, nothing has topped Tengen's Ms. Pac-Man port on the Sega Genesis/Megadrive.

So if you get anything from this review, it's that classic Namco arcade games are awesome, but this is not the best, or even a "good" way to play them as it is right now. Find some other way to play these games, unless this gets a major patch and a price drop. Sad times.

P.S. the cartoon sucks too.
