    Pac-Man and the Ghostly Adventures 2 was released less than 12 months after the first in the series, and it absolutely shows. While there's still a solid platformer in here, it's a bare-bones attempt which underwhelms for the sole reason that it could have been so much more.

    A dull and uninspired platformer. [Christmas 2014, p.78]

    Vast improvement over the original. The two biggest changes the game makes is the set camera and high score mechanic.
    The game has an excellent camera, especially compared to the original, showing everything you need to see, and just enough for you to catch on to secrets. The camera also helps make the game more platform based than the original, a concept that is echoed throughout the reapplication of the power-ups such as Fire Pac's ability to glide.
    The high score mechanic changed how the game gets played itself. The normal Pac-Man boo power, normally useless in the original, becomes so necessary for scoring high scores that the game introduces switching between your current power and normal Pac-Man, outside of a few power-ups. This system changed how the game was built, 3 bonus collectible like star coins can be found in all normal levels, giving a 2x multiplier at the end of a level to help with high scores, coin's giving you temporary bonuses, health ups in stages, it all works together nicely in the best of application of High Scores I've ever seen.
    There are also challenge levels, 3d shoot-em-up levels, and unique bosses that change the game. They feel very polished and add tons of replay value.
    The story is better than the original, but if the game didn't have a story at all it would still be better than the original. It would have done better with scenes from the show than the in game cut scenes and the voice acting is just as bad. The story, while they try, doesn't seem to go anywhere, so you'll be good to just skip all the cut scenes they present. The graphics are basically the same as the original, and thus a bit week but it doesn't hurt the game at all.
    By the end, the game is full of imagination and fun. It's very easy, seemingly throwing lives at you, and will only challenge you in High Scoring all stages. Overall, its a fun experience, doing the Pac-Man franchise justice.

    This game is awful. The controls are clunky and awkward, the music is forgettable, And the voice acting... OH the voice acting! It sounds asThis game is awful. The controls are clunky and awkward, the music is forgettable, And the voice acting... OH the voice acting! It sounds as if a 12 year old died and came back to life and started vomiting! That's how bad it is!

    Pac-man's design is awful, he has little to no personality other than being the main character. He sounds as annoying as nails on a chalkboard (If not more annoying.) and he looks like a mutant cow of sorts.

    All his friends have pretty much nothing to do with the story whatsoever and all the graphics are bland and boring.

    The music tried but failed. I won't let this slip by as they've made great music for Pac-Man World and Pac-Man World 2.

    Overall this game is a horrifying mess that nobody, not even a 3 year old should play. It decreases brain cells as you're playing it, causes migraines and is an annoyance to everyone in the household. Don't buy this game. It's horrible. But at least it's slightly better than the first Pac-Man and the Ghostly Adventures.
