  • Summary: Includes classic Namco arcade hits such as Pac-Man, Ms. Pac-Man, Galaga, Galaxian, Dig Dug and Pole Position. But the fun doesn't stop there, since Namco has added all new arrangement modes plus other hidden games. [Namco]

  1. If you're a retrogaming fan (like I am), then Namco Museum is a no-brainer, if only for the Arrangements.

    Everyone who enjoys video games owes it to themselves to try these titles at least once. If, however, you enjoy arcade reflex contests where you play for high scores, this will be perfect for you.
  3. Excellent arrangements of Dig Dug, Galaga, and Pac-Man maintain the integrity (and brilliance) of the originals. [Feb 2002, p.85]
  4. Easily the best compilation of quality classics ever seen on a console. [Feb 2002, p.108]
  5. 70
    They're still fun, but they definitely aren't pretty.
  6. Nostalgia freaks and curious geeks could use the history lesson that this disc teaches - it's an emotional purchase.
  7. But come on, do we really need FIVE different "Pac-Man" games, TWO "Pole Position" games, TWO "Dig Dug" games and TWO "Galaga" games on a compilation CD-ROM that only has 12 titles? I mean, it's a CD-ROM for Christ's sake!

    If you like retro games this might be for you, graphically the games look like they did when they came out, and the sound is the same, it's got some fun co-op, and the controls work, add some secret games and there is really no reason to turn your nose up at this just because there old. Expand

    Pac-man, Galaga, and Dig dug are very fun to play whether it be the original or the newer version. Me and my dad used to always play dig dug together and always compete in galaga for the highest score. Expand

    Namco Museum doesn't have that much variety a collection pack should -- aside from rebooted versions of Pac-Man, Dig Dug, and Galaga. In fact, you'll probably find more enjoyment out of the PS1 versions. Expand
