  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
  4. Generally a frustrating game that will leave you crying tears of boredom after you're finished.
  5. Suffers from one of the worst cameras in recent memory, killer slowdown and bland levels rife with invisible barriers. [Feb 2006, p.97]
  6. Every platforming challenge is camera related. It's sad, because there is a lot of untapped potential in Pac-Man World 3.
  7. The technical ambition is overcome by nonsensical design and a general lack of creativity.
  8. 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.
