Pac-Man Championship Edition DX Review


Pac-Man Championship Edition DX introduces a number of terrific new elements that make it a superb update of the arcade classic.

Sleeping ghosts completely change how you go about scoring big ; Slow motion and bombs are terrific new elements ; Eating dozens of ghosts at once is immensely satisfying ; Variety of game modes, mazes, visual, and musical options ; Difficulty options...

Poor leaderboard integration

Three difficulty levels mean that players of any skill level can start at a speed they're comfortable with, offering a terrific experience to both those driven by a competitive desire to dominate on the leaderboards and those just looking for a fun and...

Pac-Man Championship Edition


It's not easy staying fresh in the game industry, a place where change whips along at a rapid pace. As Xbox Live Arcade lends a new lease of life to retro titles of old, some don't translate too well and others are, to be honest, a bit embarrassing....

Pac-Man Championship Edition


As represented by the turnout at the recent Pac-Man Word Championship, Namco Bandai's iconic yellow dot is a cultural phenomenon whose influence is still felt by gamers and developers alike. Everyone knows Pac-Man; in many ways he is the industry's...

For several reasons, the announcement of Pac-Man Championship Edition met groans from the 360 community. First, the Microsoft hype machine went into overdrive hinting that there would be a giant gaming announcement that would drastically change...

Also corrected are the game's clunky controls, as the 360 controller actually holds up well when playing the game with much more responsive controls. You will still turn the wrong way every once in a great while, but it is far less frequently this...

Although I havent been much of an Xbox Live Arcade gamer so far, I have played my fair share of games that have appeared on Microsofts interesting game service. Ive played many of the big-shots to grace the service thus far, however, there havent been...

Pac-Man: Championship Edition


Well now this is unexpected. Here we have an interesting reworking of one of videogames' oldest and most classic franchises, and Microsoft and Namco Bandai kept it under wraps until a few days before the game was released. What's more, while Pac-Man:...

Different spin on the old formula breathes new life into old-school Pac-Man gameplay ; Excellent new presentation perfectly fits the “old meets new” theme

Could have used more gameplay modes and options ; If they’re really serious about the competitive angle this new game is taking, the leaderboards could have been made a bit easier to navigate, and provided more information ; 800 points ($10) seems like...

Pac-Man: Championship Edition is a surprisingly fun retooling of the classic that may even find fans in those that didn’t care for the original. It’s just a shame it’s a tad feature-poor and a little pricey. Still, give the demo a try - you may find...

Pac-Man Championship Edition


Were people "upset" when the "big news" last week was the release of a new Pac-Man? Sure. Is that fair to the game? Not at all.

If you already have the other Pac titles on XBLA, there's no need to buy this. If you have none of them and have a craving to eat some dots, this would be the choice to make.

Pac-Man Championship Edition


Pakku-Man, developed by Namco, was released in Japan in 1979. The game was later renamed and released in North America. Pac-Man was born. Pac-man quickly became an icon of the 80s and a staple of videogame history with its simplistic yet addictive...

Pac-Man CE is a solid arcade title. It doesn’t revolutionize the game but it does add some new elements to keep it fresh. 800 points is a tad pricey for a game with slight variations on game modes, but at least you know what you’re getting into with...

Pac-Man Championship Edition - Xbox Live Arcade


The Pac Attack is Back

Frantic new game play ; Shiny new graphics ; Ghost linking

Too few game modes ; Lack of original game ; Super-fast ghosts

They're about the only thing that's stayed the same. At the center of each maze, four ghosts begin to chase Pac-Man as he attempts to raise his score. Eat a power pellet and you can chow down on said ghosts, earning more and more points while you do....

Pac-Man Championship Edition


If you're expecting a replica of the Pac-Man coin-on arcade classic of the 1980s, you're going to be in for a surprise. A pleasant surprise. That's because Pac-Man Championship Edition is the best version of Pac-Man to come along in years, and it's now...

So is there anything wrong with Pac-Man Championship Edition? Well, I suppose it would have been a bonus if they had included modes that weren't timed, but that'd be going away from the tournament nature of the game. For me, that's what makes Pac-Man...
