    Pac-Man Party was better as a Wii game, though one has to applaud Pac-Man Party 3D for trying to replicate the experience on the portable scene.

    Plays like a second-rate attempt to rip off a series that's not enjoyed a distinguished recent past itself. [March 2012, p.99]

    If you're thirsting for some Pac-Man partying, I'd go out and find the Wii version, as it's more accessible and, for pete's sake, the game was clearly designed for the Wii.

    Only the most passionate Pac-Man and mini-game compilation gamers need to attend this Party.

    To make matters worse, the game's 50 or so activities are seldom satisfying, and the stylus controls can be frustrating. [Nov 2011, p.85]

    Filled to the brim with minigames and old classics, but sadly most of them just aren't very fun.

    A party without fun is merely a gathering. Played alone, this is a bit of a disaster. [Apr 2012, p.96]

    One of the most meager party games we've seen in a while.
  9. A soulless title with poor mini-games, this is a party that needs no pooping.

    Ultimately, the game tries to be more than what it turns out to be: a poor, unexciting take at the Mario Party formula. The game is littered with cool little additions that would usually make the game great, but sadly, they're all bogged down by inconsistencies, glitches, and what appears to be a lack of effort.

    There's just not much here, and what is, feels rushed and half-hearted.

    Honestly, I love this game. It's slightly better on the Wii, but if your on the go, this game is perfect. Playing Pac-Man Party with my friends is a blast. I also love how you get to play classic Pac-Man and Dig-Dug. Full Review »
