Summary: So here we have another installment of the famed Namco Museum series. There are some good titles and some weak ones. The most impressive turn-on is the game intro/music, where Pac-Man interacts with a bunch of other characters such as Mappy and Dig Dug. You wouldn't be that humored on previous Namco Museum installments. Now on to the games themselves. Pac-Man -- 5 stars - playing the original Pac-Man on ANY platform, even the DS, is always a grand ol' time.

Some good and some bad , Average collection overall

Excerpt: Popping in here with another compilation game review, because honestly what could be better than 7 games on 1 cartridge. Especially when they are all Namco classics like these. Released in 2007 , this title packs in seven of Namco's best known titles including Pacman, Dig Dug 2, Xevious, Galaga, Galazian, The tower of Druaga and Mappy.
Conclusion: I'm sure we've all bought Namco's previous Museum Pieces from PS1 - Xbox, so the format is far from original. However, I would have hoped that Namco could have stretched to more than 7 games as featured in this DS collection. You can extend this to 9 but the extra 2 are merely revisions of Dig Dug II and Xevious which are already included in the initial 7 line-up.
