Pac-Man World 3 Gameplay Movie 4
Score distribution:
  1. Positive: 0 out of 8
  2. Negative: 4 out of 8
  1. With few novel twists on basic platformer elements and passable visuals, Pac-Man World 3’s only shot at investing Pac-Man with the charm of a Ratchet or a Clank rests with its story. It disappoints severely on that count.
  2. Every platforming challenge is camera related. It's sad, because there is a lot of untapped potential in Pac-Man World 3.
  3. The technical ambition is overcome by nonsensical design and a general lack of creativity.
  4. Generally a frustrating game that will leave you crying tears of boredom after you're finished.

    While there is some fun to be had at the most simplistic of levels, no effort was put into making this a stand-alone great DS title.

    Suffers from one of the worst cameras in recent memory, killer slowdown and bland levels rife with invisible barriers. [Feb 2006, p.97]
  7. Ultimately, this might be the worst game on the DS yet. The camera alone ruins it, even if the rest of the game wasn’t utter garbage.

    El resultado es un estado donde llegas a la perfección,y al equilibrio mental y físico mientras olvidas el mundo tridimensional y asciendes en una forma espiritual donde te vuelves completamente inmerso en el juego mismo,en el que la DS pasa a ser una extensión de tu propio cuerpo,y se convierte en un portal hacia el alma del videojuego

    Such a bad game, has too many glitches, rifes with invisible barriers, and there are only 4 levels through the whole game. Don't play unlessSuch a bad game, has too many glitches, rifes with invisible barriers, and there are only 4 levels through the whole game. Don't play unless you have a DS and are a World 3 fan. All other versions are way better, and this game is garbage. Expand
