Summary: Pac-Man Championship Edition DX is definitely a fun turn on the traditional Pac-Man games, but I found it to be a bit over-priced. If you are a Pac-Fan, then by all means... download. The graphics are nice, sound and music are more modern (and not annoying), and gameplay blends old and new together quite nicely. And the developers added one feature that will always be a favorite: Matrix-style slow down right before colliding with enemies.
Summary: Simply outstanding. It's got the old school 80's gaming mechanics, the insane high speed action of current arcade games, and the rainbow euphoria of Peggle all wrapped up into one package. Great for short bursts of gaming or longer periods of trying to get the new high score. It is addicting and just plain FUN.
Summary: Unbelievably addicting. Pac-Man Championship Edition DX will have you playing 'till the wee hours of the morning. From the variations of music, colors, characters and mazes to the highly competitive formula, you won't be able to tear yourself away. Pure adrenaline-pumping fun.
Summary: This game is proof positive that game developers' time and effort is better spent on exploring new gameplay mechanics than on striving for photorealistic images and Hollywood-style cinematics. The developers at Namco, instead of asking themselves how to make Pac-Man look and sound better, poured their energy into figuring out how to make the game more fun.
Summary: OK so you have Pac-Man. Now you have this Pac-Man. This IS Pac-Man. I am amazed how they could improve the formula. This game is addicting. It's fast paced and there is nothing more satisfying then eating a train of 30 ghosts and wiping out the rest as you keep extending the power pill time. I even enjoy the Matrix time effect whenever you are close to getting nailed by a ghost. I can't think of any negatives.
Summary: Pac-Man Championship Edition DX just does what a game should do : it's fun to play and play again, it doesn't break too much away from the mold that made it an instant classic back when it originally released and adds a few variations here and there along with leader boards to give it replayability. Forget spending quarters over and over; for 10$, you'll be able to play this gem of a game without fear of running out of change.
Summary: When Namco released Championship Edition a couple years ago, I was completely blown away. Somehow, they've done it again. They've beefed up the gameplay yet again, this time adding more modes than you should get for $10. This game is awesome. Go get the trial!
