    This game is almost good. The pleasant music and sound effects an collectibles make it seem like this game would be joy to play. But its not.This game is almost good. The pleasant music and sound effects an collectibles make it seem like this game would be joy to play. But its not. I had fun with the first few levels, then it just when down hill.
    First lets start with the mechanics of the game. The Rev Roll. Aside from almost thinking i was playing Sonic the hedgehog the Rev Roll mechanic is a messy unresponsive thing to even attempt in this game. You can never land on platforms that you need to use that to get to and its very, very hard to control.
    And now the biggest and probably only serious issue with this game. The level design. Oh my god.
    Pacman World 2s level design is atrocios! Rev roll leaps of faith, unexplained scenarios, so many jumps that you can just barely make regardless of how close you jump from the edge, Pacman will jank around and just about grab on to the edge giving you a mini heart attack in the process.
    Simply put, the levels are not designed well to have fun with and with an IP as big as Pacman, this a big deal. This game isnt good, but you can play the original arcade pacman in it. So thats good.

    Brilliant! Graphics and gameplay are very enjoyable. Perfect for those who are simply tired of blowing off heads in violent wargames.
