    First, the good: it's Ms. Pac-Man, and that puts it ahead of every Namco release on Live Arcade except Galaga. Now, the bad: just like every other Namco release on Live Arcade, this one has NOTHING NEW, and just like every other Namco release on Live Arcade so far, this has already been released on countless arcade compilations, most of which you can probably buy for $5 and get 10x First, the good: it's Ms. Pac-Man, and that puts it ahead of every Namco release on Live Arcade except Galaga.

Buy only if you're a die-hard fan, all others avoid this. Expand

  1. For a quick-hit classic gaming experience via XBLA, you really can’t go wrong with Ms. Pac-Man. Sure, the game is way simple, but 1981 was a simple time; maybe not in terms of synth pop, but definitely in terms of video games.

    Ms. Pac-Man has about 256 maps, 250 of which you'll never likely to see. It's also tough. But watching a really good player is impressive and encouraging. I hooked a few younger IGN staffers and they now love Ms. Pac-Man.
  3. Are you dying to play some more Ms. Pac-Man? If so, then pick this up, but keep in mind that it's a very barebones emulation of the original game.
