Pros: Easy to play, More or less free, Multiple mazes
Cons: Limited options, no handicapping, No single-player, not even AI, Not everybody has a GBA-GC link cable. Hope you got ten bucks!, There could have even been more mazes, like the Ms. Pac-Man ones at least

Excerpt: Birthed from a brainstorming session between Nintendo and Namco, PacMan Vs. puts an original spin on a classic that everyone knows and loves. Well, anyone who’s been an enthusiastic gamer at least in some point of their life.
Conclusion: One of the tough things about slapping a score on Pac Man Vs is that it's a lot cheaper than normal games - in fact, it's free when you buy Namco's (admittedly bloody awful) R:Racing, and will apparently be packed in with other games in future.
Conclusion: Pac-Man Vs ontpopt zich als een enorm leuk spel, waarmee Nintendo laat zien dat simplistische spellen ook leuk kunnen zijn.

Pros: Heel leuk, Heel verslavend, Plezier met vrienden, Gratis bij een ander spel
