  1. Lack of replay value relegates this game to a rental.
  2. Nothing can save Pac-Man World 3 from feeling simply average, and that extends to the game's presentation as well. This is not helped by some crippling technical issues, which are highlighted by an unmanageable and nearly-broken camera.
  3. Game Informer
    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]
  4. A platformer, characterized most notably by its fusion of classic Pac-Man moments and generic platforming gameplay.
  5. 69
    Blitz Games has to its credit delivered Pac-Man fans a sequel with tight controls and occasionally engaging level designs. There studio has also successfully merged new and old styles, presenting in-game challenges that require you to play nicely emulated original Pac-Man levels.
  6. A painfully routine affair then, and a missed opportunity to boot.
  7. 50
    You only have to see the opening cutscene to realise that Pac-Man World 3 isn't a game for adults. As a children's game it's not bad at all, with some 3D platforming gameplay that treads a familiar path, and plenty of variety to keep things interesting.
  8. What is new is very good, sadly the new material is in fairly short supply in Pac-Man World 3.
  9. 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.
