  1. What you're buying into is a fantastic celebration of a timeless classic, and one that does something genuinely interesting with the gameplay to make it relevant now. The problem is, basically, is that it's been put in totally the wrong price bracket for what is an impulse buy. A curiosity.
  2. As it stands, if only because this is a fantastic reimagining of a game everyone has played, Championship Edition is amongst the top tier downloadable games on Xbox 360.
  3. 'Championship' mode though is an ingenious spin on presenting level-based gameplay in a whole new way as there is virtually no pause in the action. For all intents and purposes, Pac-Man has turned into a gruelling video game marathon. 'Championship' mode alone makes this download worth it for any serious Pac-Man fan.
  4. If you still have Pac-Man Fever, this game is a must-own. Otherwise, just sample the remix with the free demo. [Sept 2007, p.76]
  5. Pac-Man Championship Edition is awesome, but just doesn't feel like a full game. It feels like a bonus mode to a more full-featured title.

    Classic arcade. Even now it's still addicting and doesn't get old. So simple, so good. Not as fun as DX but definitely closer to the originalClassic arcade.

    I played this one game in an arcade that had an xbox machinme hooked up to look like an arcade cabinet but really it was a lie box becauseI played this one game in an arcade that had an xbox machinme hooked up to look like an arcade cabinet but really it was a lie box because xbox machines are not arcade cabinets but this game is an arcade game. The arcade also had a slush puppy machine and a friendly man changing notes for coins. he was sat behind a glass shelf which I at first thought peculiar but it was just for safety of said man incase of gun attack. The game is perfect apart from the ghosts. A CONTINUOS NUICANCE! Full Review »

    Best game I've played on XBLA so far. Unlocked all the achievements but I love coming back to try and beat my Championship score.
