  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. While I commend Human Soft for packing in as much content as they could, the single-frame stills from the console and PSP movies are no substitute for the actual movie, and the total lack of voices, especially considering the amount of humorous Pac-Man and Orson banter, is just too detrimental to the overal presentation and gameplay experience.
