Pac-Man Party

Family Friendly Gaming
2 February 2013
  • Excerpt: We work tirelessly, and do not bother to keep track of hours making sure we can bring all of the big titles to you our wonderful readers. There are games that fall through the cracks, or for whatever strange reason we do not get a copy of. Pac-Man Party impressed me at E3 2010, and we reported on it online and in the magazine. Through the huge Christmas rush, and all those games coming in, we realized that Pac-Man Party did not arrive.

Pac-Man Party

Game Revolution

  • Excerpt: This is how the cookie crumbles. So. That Pac-Man guy, eh? How about him, huh? He turned 30. Yep. That do anything for ya ? Yeah, me neither. Funny how Mario and Zelda turn 25 and we all view that as a big deal, but Pac-Man turns 30 and no one bats an eyelash. The reason is probably because the prior two franchises are still relevant and iconic while Pac-Man has kind of lulled around in the background, his recent Championship Edition being the only wave he's made in...
  • Pros: Bright, lively presentation and animation, Unique ideas in party board games, Original Pac-Man, Galaga, and Dig Dug, Mini-games are uninspired and unresponsive, Pacing is way too slow for a party game, Classic arcade titles are more engaging that the main content

Pac-man Party Review

Cheat Code Central
21 June 2011

Decent mini-game set, plus sweet retro games included.

Common Sense Media
11 June 2011
  • Summary: Parents need to know that Pac-Man Party is a collection of mini-games, presented in a board game fashion, intended for up to four players. Pac-Man and other old '80s video game characters appear within. There is some minor violence in a few of the mini-games, but on the whole, there's not much to worry about as far as objectionable content goes.

Defunct Games

  • Summary: Pac-Man Party has a lot of the right elements, but Namco wasn't able to fit them together to make a worthwhile game. The end result is a board game that overstays its welcome and forces players to suffer through one uninspired mini-game after another. Not even the addition of the original Pac-Man arcade game can push me into recommending this generic Mario Party clone! Tweet This product was submitted by the publisher for review.
