    It's no "Mario Party," but it is a fun romp through an abbreviated Namco Universe. [Aug 2002, p.71]
  2. Takes a good idea and executes it in a mediocre way.
  3. Just another shallow party game.
  4. The very definition of ‘AVERAGE’ (which is what the number ‘5’ represents in our review scale), “Pac-Man Fever” neither diminishes or improves on the “Mario Party” formula set in stone back in ’99 by Hudson Soft.

    Isn't bad - it's just not that great. It's good for a couple plays, but not much more. [Sept 2002, p.32]

    This is a game that, as its title aptly implies, you can quickly get sick of. [Oct 2002, p.40]

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. Full Review »

    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. Full Review »

    An alright game, but a complete rip-off of Mario Party. But an avereage party game non the less.
