  • Summary: The classic gaming character Pac-Man is back for the third iteration of the Pac-Man World series. The game features the classic Pac-Man powers and adds a few new abilities--such as superstomp and electric shock--to assist the yellow-ball-like hero against his ghost foes. You will also be able to take control of two different ghost characters. The game takes place in both 2D and 3D and includes the original Pac-Man arcade game. Expand

  1. A fantastic action-platformer that, despite a few technical hitches and minor camera problems, delivers well over 10 hours of 3D Pac-Man goodness.
  2. Call me crazy but I really loved this game... maybe more than I should, but keep in mind I grew up with this game character.
  3. It's a good title for kids. It controls well, the levels are interesting, and the references to Pac Man 25 years ago are respectful.
  4. Lack of replay value relegates this game to a rental.
  5. The dialogue is actually charming and sometimes clever, but the loose controls found in the main game also plauge the arcade port to a degree, which to me, is the biggest bummer of this outing. [Jan 2006, p.138]
  6. A painfully routine affair then, and a missed opportunity to boot.
  7. Mind-numbingly repetitive. [Jan 2006, p.75]
