Excerpt: Would you like to know how powerful the Nintendo 3DS is? Compare Pac-Man Party 3D on the 3DS to Pac-Man Party on the Wii. Yes the 3DS version is a scaled down version, but it looks awesome. The transition to the hand held has been a good one.
Summary: Parents need to know that Pac-Man 3D Party is a collection of mini-games in which players have to tap the screen, press buttons, and follow on-screen commands more quickly and with more accuracy than their opponents.
Summary: Missing the point entirely " Pac-Man Party 3D " is an ill-conceived port of a party game that I assume was only ever mediocre. While some fun I am sure could have been gleaned with it during a night of drinking and friends in front of a Wii, in the palm of my hand it was frustrating and misplaced.
Excerpt: To start off with, I'm going to answer the question that is no doubt going through your head. I'm sure you're thinking "Pac-Man party...like Mario Party?" The answer to that question is yes, it's a lot like Mario's party. Now I'm not saying that's a bad thing.
Pros: And old arcade titles, Includes a boatload of minigames, Single-card download play
Cons: Graphics and sound are lifeless and generic, Takes a dog's age to play through even a two-player game, Wii's pointer-based games don't always translate well, You're unlikely to find three other people to play this with
Excerpt: As Pac-Man Party's story mode tells us, "Stories are like cookies. Some are sweet, or hard to swallow, and everyone has a favourite." If we extend this analogy to games, then Pac-Man Party 3D would be a stale pack of Jammie Dodgers with a best before date that expired in the late 1990s.
Conclusion: Mit etwas mehr Liebe zum Detail, einigen neuen Ideen und vor allem einer richtigen Umsetzung auf den 3D hätte Pac-Man Party 3D sogar wirklich Spaß machen können, aber eine derart plumpe Umsetzung für den Handheld kann natürlich nicht gutgehen.
Pros: 50 Minispiele, Simples Prinzip
Cons: Steuerung schwach umgesetzt, Kein Online-Modus, 3D-Effekt unnütz, Game-Sharing-Funktion nutzlos, weil sie nur 3 Spiele teilt, Alleine total langweilig und unterfordernd, Minispiele ähneln sich zu stark
