    A perfect balance of old and new with a wonderful presentation. Pac-Man Championship Edition 2 is simultaneously inventive and nostalgic, and worth playing for anyone who likes arcade style games.

    A worthy sequel in Bandai Namco's hyper-frenzied Pac-Man series, with a highly competitive gameplay and some important new mechanics. It might have used some more variety, but it's undoubtedly a must buy for all lovers of this genre.

    Inventive and original, this is retro done right. Another success for Pac-man. [Dec 2016, p.87]

    Pac-Man Championship Edition 2 tries to be bigger and bolder then the first, but it just doesn't seem to provide the same type of quality execution. That's disappointing because I love how different companies interpret Pac-Man and I know this could have been done a whole lot better, especially since I enjoyed the first one so much.

    It’s a step up from the original Pac-Man Championship Edition versions and offers hours of fun and tons of replayability if you want to aim for the high score. Unfortunately, the levels feel uninspired even though they add various features like jump pads. That’s mostly due to the fact that they’re all mostly the same with different visuals.

    Pac-Man Championship Edition 2 still has the fast, smooth and responsive gameplay of the first title in this offshoot series, but it takes a lot of work to get to the meat and potatoes of the game.

    It is still a very enjoyable game that, with any other name, would standalone as a fun, feature rich and exciting title. Unfortunately, what I wanted was something that resembled the first Pac-Man Championship Edition (and the Pac-Man games I love) a lot more closely. Newcomers and speed runners will probably love this version, but those looking for nostalgia will find the game sadly lacking.

    At first I was skeptical of this game; it looked like it had little to offer over the original, but it's incredibly fast, fun, and addsAt first I was skeptical of this game; it looked like it had little to offer over the original, but it's incredibly fast, fun, and adds incredible replay value, especially through Adventure Mode.
