    Just about everything is bland, from the gameplay to the graphics. [Jan 2006, p.80]

    Even as a generic 3D platformer Pac-Man World 3 fails to satisfy.
  3. At least the level design in this one is vaguely interesting at some points. As a competitor to the likes of Ratchet and Jak, though, Pac-Man is starting to look ten times his age. [PSW]

    Not an awful game by any means, but one totally devoid of anything to recommend it. [Mar 2006, p.106]
  5. It has neither the charm, nor the innovation, nor the wicked guns, and therefore ultimately feels like a bit of a chore.

It has this strange mix of darkness (not in lighting, but in tone) and being light hearted with comedy. At first, this game was pretty fun, though a little repetitive. Then you realize that repetitiveness is the whole game. It has some platforming and stuff, but in some ways it feels watered down from PMW2. This one is still better than the first one, but not as good as the second one. Full Review »

After a wonderful experience I had with Pac-Man World 2, a simple, fun and hard platformer/collectathon, this generic (that's even better than what I really think of it) wonky, glitchy game gave me a real headache. The levels aren't nearly as creative, the dialogue completely ruins our silent hero, the story is just plain annoying, and the fight mechanic is horrible and unneeded, at most. It's Crash of the Titans all over again. Why couldn't they just stick with the gold? I loved 2 so much! Full Review »
