The lead player, viewing the entire maze on the Game Boy Advance, must avoid the other three players controlling the ghosts on the television screen. To raise the tension factor, the three ghost players can only see part of the maze around their characters. Pac-Man must clear all the pac-dots in each maze to progress to the next level. Expand

    We never would have thought that adding some multiplayer functions to a 23-year-old arcade game would result in one of the most fun and addictive games out there, but Pac-Man Vs. is just that.
  2. One of the most unique experiences you can get in a home console today.

    Easily one of the most interesting, if not most fun, multiplayer games to grace the GameCube’s purple presence.

    It’s just weird enough to be worth owning for posterity.
  5. So basic that you'd think it couldn't possibly be this much fun. A tremendous multiplayer game, but be warned - that's all it is. [NGC]
  6. Doesn't match the frantic pace of a good first-person shooter or the complexity of a turn-based strategy game. Instead, it’s a clever reinvention of something old into a multiplayer experience.

    Simply put, it's just not that fun. [Jan 2004, p.141]
