    There isn't much to complain about with Maze Madness, except that the game is short and easy.
  2. If it weren't for the extra $10 you have to pay for the privilege and the Sega/Dreamcast boot-up sequence, there's no way you would know that this is a DC game from looking at it on a TV screen without the PSX version nearby for comparison.

    Ms. Pac Man sometimes gets a mind of her own when you tell her where to go, but the simple controls keep gameplay chomping along.
  4. It shouldn't be ignored because it has playability, fun, solid multi-player modes, good music, and enough to give a gamer a good time.
  5. It ultimately does what few updated classics do well - it brings new concepts to a well-known game while keeping the fun and magic of the original game.

    Pretty good, but the ending stinks. But overall, I'd recommend it, and once you start playing, you can't stop.
