  • Summary: Help Pac-Man uncover Erwin's evil plot and save the real world from the collapsing Spectral world. Fortunately, Pac-Man is not alone this time - Pinky and Clyde, the classic Ghosts, will help him along his journey. Pac-Man World 3 will have an arsenal of power-ups that will let Pac-Man be victorious and save everybody from Erwin's evil plans. Expand

  1. With few novel twists on basic platformer elements and passable visuals, Pac-Man World 3’s only shot at investing Pac-Man with the charm of a Ratchet or a Clank rests with its story. It disappoints severely on that count.
  2. Every platforming challenge is camera related. It's sad, because there is a lot of untapped potential in Pac-Man World 3.
  3. The technical ambition is overcome by nonsensical design and a general lack of creativity.
  4. Generally a frustrating game that will leave you crying tears of boredom after you're finished.
  5. 40
    While there is some fun to be had at the most simplistic of levels, no effort was put into making this a stand-alone great DS title.
  6. Suffers from one of the worst cameras in recent memory, killer slowdown and bland levels rife with invisible barriers. [Feb 2006, p.97]
  7. Ultimately, this might be the worst game on the DS yet. The camera alone ruins it, even if the rest of the game wasn’t utter garbage.
