    Pac-Man Championship Edition DX just does what a game should do : it's fun to play and play again, it doesn't break too much away from the mold that made it an instant classic back when it originally released and adds a few variations here and there along with leader boards to give it replayability. Forget spending quarters over and over; for 10$, you'll be able to play this gem of a game without fear of running out of change. Expand

    Yes it looks cool and yes it appeals to nostalgic Pac-Man players. But lets be fair after you play one of the neon lit 'new' levels you still come away thinking "meh". Sadly it still plays like a game which was only averagely playable 30 years ago. This is one for people with too many psn points or indeed gamers who don't want any depth or excitement to their titles.

    What's so special about this? It's pacman, but not as I remember it. It's fun for a few rounds. And way to expensive. No idea why this is getting such good reviews.

    The game is awesome, although I wish the campaign progression was more linear like the original. My biggest gripe is lack of local multi-player. Would have given this game a 10!

    Easily the most enjoyable adaptation of Pac-Man I have ever played. It feels great to play and will leave you coming back for better high scores time and time again. A must own game

    this game is fun but a bit overrated. first of all the price of this game is too high.. should be around 3 or 4 bucks could be nice. and then its nothing new here.. its just the classic pac-man.. i think it deserves 7/10..

    Yeah it's true. This game is really good. Doesn't matter if you're a fan of pac-man or not. this game is absolutely addicting in the best possible way. You can play for 10 or 20 minutes while you wait for the pizza guy to ring the bell or you can play for a a few hours. It doesn't require much video game skill to play, but it does require skills to get the highest scores.. and that's what makes the best games. remember how annoying it use to be to move pac-man left but he goes up or down and you die? Well that rarely happens anymore. 1st of all, the PS3 has the best d-pad on the market so errors on your part are slim to none due to a bad d-pad (like the useless 360's) and you can also use the analog stick if you wish. But as I was saying, the action slows way down before you're about to get killed by a ghost so you have TIME to respond. You or your girlfriend. And the satisfaction of eating all the ghosts that start following you, is extremely addicting. And if all else fails and you find yourself in a corner about to die, you have a bomb you can use by pressing any button and all the ghosts that are chasing you bounce back to their home base in the middle. So you don't need to be a pac-man expert or a video game junkie to appreciate and have fun with this game..and if you are those things, well, there's plenty of challenge for you here too. It's seriously the best 10 bucks I've spent on a new game. Only reason why not a 10, is there's no 2 player or online modes. Expand

    The best $10 you could ever spend on the PSN store. This game will drain hours and hours of your life if you are not careful! It's simply a must buy for anyone remotely interested in Pac-Man.

    The huge quantity and variety is only superficial: Whether in time trial or in score attack, each level is built to require the same thought pattern by the player. The new touches freshen the game up, but I can't help but feel they stuck too much to the formula in the end. For a few hours of diversion, it's an entertaining game, just one you can expect to easily work your way through if you have enough patience (especially the trophies require patience more than anything). A game should require more than patience. Creative thinking. Ideas. Knowledge. Such are only required for climbing its leaderboards. The tweaked gameplay shows that they were willing to take chances, but there's a lack of that special idea to really make the game impressive in 2014. Expand

    Arguably the best pac man game; even better than the original. The graphics are beautiful, the soundtracks are catchy, the gameplay is addictive, overall a great buy.

    One of the most exciting titles available. It is, in short, a game any sort of player – casual or hard-core – will take a shine to.
