  1. The animation is solid, and there's a plot to boot. [Aug 2002, p.79]
  2. It's no "Mario Party," but it is a fun romp through an abbreviated Namco Universe. [Aug 2002, p.71]
  3. Takes a good idea and executes it in a mediocre way.
  4. Pac’s newest adventure involves playing cheesy boards and minigames with his sappy friends (obviously his wife’s pals), who look like they hopped out of a Barney video.
  5. This is the kind of plague that should see Pac-Man quarantined and approached only by trained disease control experts in the shelter of a hazardous materials suit.
  6. 40
    Without even a hint of fun multiplayer competition, you and your friends will certainly catch an unfavorable fever caused by a dismal showing of Pac-Man Fever.
  7. This is a snore-fest made all the more yawnsome when you discover you have to watch the computer players take their turns in their geriatric entirety. [Oct 2002, p.194]

However, it'll keep the kiddies entertained with its wacky mini-games. Pros: A variety of mini-games; good board designs; lots of comic mischief. Cons: Average graphics; dull visuals; limited characters and unlockable content; it's a sad attempt at ripping off the Mario Party series. Expand

    Some of it's games ARE rip-offs. Music does get repetitive, and I'm not sure who that disco guy is, or any of the other humans in Some of it's games ARE rip-offs. Music does get repetitive, and I'm not sure who that disco guy is, or any of the other humans in this game. The repetitive music is kinda good, most games are mildly enjoyable, the variety of characters is nice. Graphics are nothing to mention, they are pretty generic. This game does more wrong than it does right. Expand

    The horror of it all! The repetitive music makes my mind scream in agony as I suffer through one game of this sick disgrace of a video game. The horror of it all! The repetitive music makes my mind scream in agony as I suffer through one game of this sick disgrace of a video game. Please make it stop! Board game games got unbelievably old after Mario Party. Totally upsetting... Expand
