This is garbage. Another lazy, resolution-locked optionless piece of trash port crapped onto the PC.

Skip this title and play Pac-Man CE DX+ instead, or run the older games in MAME.

So astoundingly bad that it manages to transcend nearly every boundary put forth by some of gaming's absolute worst of the worst and easily makes it into that dubiously extraordinary category of being one of the most atrocious collections ever published.

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.

This collection would have been fantastic if there were options to change resolution. Battle Royale is stuck in a crappy purple boarder. (which isn't shown in the video on the store page, something I find extremely deceptive.) This'll be a thumbs down for me until they fix something which sould be standard in any PC release.

It's not a bad game. This game uses the engine of Namco Museum for XBOX 360 for displaying the arcade games. Unfortunately there is no way to turn off the sometimes distracting borders that some of the games have. You'll have to play in a well lit room to not be affected by it. Could make some people dizzy or sick.

Arcade perfection wise, these games are the originals. but you can't see the games opening attraction because once you start a game, the software automatically inserts a credit for you to play so you can't see it. Also if you notice the copyright messages on the original arcade games have been modified to say NBGI on them so its not really an original game if you modify the original copyright on the screen.

The controls are good. I'm using a Logitech F310 gamepad in XInput mode so it's just like playing on the XBOX 360 except its for PC.

Finally I read through some of the complaints about glitchy graphics . I don't have them here. Windows XP SP3, 4GB Ram , Nvidia Geforce 8400M GS , Intel Core 2 Duo 2.4ghz Processor. Runs pretty smooth.

If there is one complaint I had is that the initial demo offering really did not convince me to buy the full game initially but once I saw some gameplay videos of this game, I had to have it. I don't own an XBOX 360 so my gaming choices are limited but I'm happy that Namco Bandai Games decided to show some love for the PC audience and release this game. Despire some complaints about it.

Maybe it does need patching, but for now I'll play it as is.

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.
