  1. The perfect example of a good game that just takes a bit too much from other games than it should.

    Will quickly be overshadowed and fade into obscurity. [Nov 2002, p.134]

    The difference between the two games is night and day, with "Mario Party 4" being the better of the two by a wide margin.
  4. The three boards are each a little on the dull side and the play mechanics are uninspired.
  5. Just another shallow party game.
  6. 49
    Though it has the formula down, it has failed to capture the incentive to play and the depth to sustain continued play.
  7. Party game gone to hell thanks to its poor execution.

    This game, although it has a lack of voices, is a very good game. Really!

    Sure its sort of like a Mario Party rip off but Namco was trying something different for once and i think that was good for them too do that.

    People may say that this game has no sound affects or any kind of voice acting of such kind? But did PAC Man really had a voice actor back in the day come on now? you really expect voice acting in this game?

    The music is good. but gets a little annoying once and a while to be honest

    Mini games

    They were okay but they could of had a better ideas

    Design

    Looks great!

    Pac man and everyone else seem too look fine as long as there is no glitches, but other than that im fine with

    Anyway 8.0 Great! Game

    Should i recommend it?

    If your a real fan of Pac man and party games then this is for you my friend

    But if you dont really know what Pac man really is then your not going to get the real concept of it and how it works... so no to that

    Namco has some really cool characters but surprisingly none of them are seen here. Clearly, what you got here is a mario party rip-off. You Namco has some really cool characters but surprisingly none of them are seen here. Clearly, what you got here is a mario party rip-off. You travel a board collecting coins, tickets, and a bunch of other useless crap, and at the end you just want to waste your tickets on buying those very fun mini-games. Board game sucks...mini-games fun. Expand

    Do not expect Pac Man eating dots. Otherwise it is fun when small children are part of the mix.
