Namco Museum DS

Family Friendly Gaming
2 February 2013
  • Excerpt: One of the most under rated video games of all time is Pac-Man Vs. In that game three players play as the ghosts while the fourth player gets to be Pac-Man. Countless hours of fun was had by myself and college friends on the Nintendo Gamecube version of Pac-Man Vs. When our always grammatically correct editor in chief let me know there was a Nintendo DS version of Pac-Man Vs. - well I just had to play it.

Namco Museum

Strategy Informer
6 October 2011
  • Excerpt: You know that feeling where you just want to be a cynic, you want to look at the negative side of things but something just won’t let you? It’s like secretly enjoying one of those cheesy, British romantic comedies that make an appearance once a year, every year, without fail. If one of your friends asks if you enjoyed it, you’ll casually laugh and say it’s formulaic, you’ve seen over a hundred of the same type of film before, it offers nothing new, relies on obvious gags...

Take a trip back in time to play classic arcades.

  • Summary: Parents need to know that these are faithful recreations of classic arcade games. They're old, kind of silly, and at times frustrating, but ultimately rewarding.

  • Excerpt: “Namco’s museum enables gamers to explore retro classics for inspiration, learning and enjoyment.” Adapted from The Museums Association definition, 1998. Veteran gaming companies usually put very little effort into re-mastering their golden oldies for the new generation. They know that Generation Y and the next lot wouldn’t care much for them anyway, especially in the HD-thriving world we live in today.

Namco Museum DS Review

GameSpot
19 September 2007
  • Summary: Namco Museum DS is a decent collection of arcade classics, but you'll have to turn your DS on its side to see them properly.
  • Pros: Lots of options let you configure each game's display and difficulty to your liking, Pac-Man Vs. provides some multiplayer fun
  • Cons: Have to turn the DS sideways to play properly, There's nothing "classic" about Dig Dug II

  • Summary: The collection itself is great, but the way it's been fleshed out is really impressive. The full-fledged treatment of each game makes this edition of Namco Museum really feel like a museum. Sceptics wondering whether it's worth it should be more than satisfied, especially with Pac-Man Vs. in the line-up. Retro gamers, head over to the DS aisle.
  • Pros: It comes packed with tons of extras including game descriptions, a music/sfx sampler, and gallery shots of original instruction cards, fliers and the list goes on
  • Cons: Sometimes the resolution isn't that good so you won't be able to read the Japanese writing that comes up on the screen (if you can read Japanese in the first place is a whole other thing...)
