  1. But Despite the artful simplicity of the game we just can't justify paying money for this. Throwback kudos and nostalgia value aside, the game involves too little skill in comparison to the likes of Joust or the aforementioned "Geometry Wars."
  2. There are no added features to speak of. There’s no online multiplayer or split screen – there’s not even a 2 player hot seat game, which is a pretty big omission.

The graphics look like they were made in the 1980's and all you do is eat pellets in a maze avoiding ghosts.Really Namco? That's all you could do in all your laziness you made this complete piece of junk that seems like it ran on an Atari in the 1980's. I mean come ON! There is no multiplayer or no story. Just one tiny thing. This "game" is for people who decide to clear up some storage to put a game their three year olds just might appreciate. Full Review »

The controls aren't what they are on a arcade--- because the 360 isn't an arcade machine, but none the less it's a great playing game and awesome exactly as it is. Yes, the controls seem sluggish, partly becasue the original controller was a 4 way digital stick... not an analog joystick.

    As for updated graphics... I hate those games that have the "evolved" levels... leave the classics the way they were and don't mess with them.
