  1. Behold - the finest score attack arcade game on Live Arcade since "Geometry Wars." [Sept 2007, p.96]
  2. 95
    Combining the old-school feel with new-gen intensity, Pac-Man World Championship is the best Xbox Live Arcade game since Geometry Wars.
  3. For the price tag of 800 MS Points, Pac-Man Championship Edition is priced right. The action is fun and simple to enjoy while keeping a traditional approach with a few presentation and gameplay upgrades.
  4. If all retro games received remixes this compelling, you would hear gamers begging for them rather than bemoaning them.
  5. Filing stuff. [Issue#23, p.98]
  6. Great to look at and the new mazes rock. [Aug 2007, p.103]
  7. 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.

    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 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! Expand

    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 original concept of pac man. Expand
