    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.

    Simply a masterpiece. There's really no reason why this one shouldn't be in your collection, whether you are a fan of the saga or not. It's so funny and polished you really can't miss it.

    Championship Edition DX is superbly balanced. It rewards skilled players with a great challenge and extremely frantic gameplay, while those that initially struggle won't feel unfairly punished when the game speed knocks itself down every time Paccers dies. You will crave to beat your highscore on the litany of tables, and every time you complete a round something new opens up. [February 2011 p80]

    One of the best Pac-Man games you can get at the moment. The game looks pretty nice, the gameplay is oldschool but fun and it works great on the PlayStation 3. Beside the classic Pac-Man gameplay the game contains a lot of different modes to keep you playing.

    The different modes have enough variety to add a measure of replay value, with minor changes in the gameplay and some new mazes to chomp your way through.

It feels great to play, sounds great, and has so much to do that I've put tens of hours into the game without repeating a single challenge. Expand

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. Expand

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

Its simple yet challenging. It reqiures fast reflexs and improves dexterity and muscle memory. It can help u loose weight if u play it long enough without eating. And its tripped out, maniacz. I never gave 1 turd bout the old pacinator till i playd this version. This is by far the best most addictive version ive playd. Should probly give it a 10 but its pacman. So i wont. I mean hes just this yellow thing that eats dots, anyone could do it. Expand

Needless to say, this a flashier take on the classic, that gives your the same entertaining gameplay it had then, WITH A TWIST!

    Stages change, speeds increase and the challenge ramps up the higher the score gets. This may not seem like a big deal to you, the reader right now. But, trust me, this version breathes new life into Pac-Man!

    Overall, its pretty fun and worth a play when you want a simple arcade game to play!
