Conclusion: It’s going to take a bit of skill to complete a few of Ms. Pac-Man ’s achievements. Here’s a look at how they break down: Strawberry – Eat the strawberry that appears after eating a set number of Dots (5 GS points) Cherry – Eat the cherry that appears after eating a set number of Dots (5 GS points) Orange – Eat the orange that appears after eating a set number of Dots (10 GS points) Pretzel – Eat the pretzel that appears after eating a set number of Dots 15 GS points)...
Conclusion: At a price of 400 MSP it's hard to pass up. If you happen to find the Namco Comp. Disc for xbox which comes with that plus 8 other games that would cost 400 MSP each GET IT! You'll be rewarded with 9 XBLA titles for the price of 4 and have about 20 bonus games ( with no achs ) to go with it. Either way this game is a strong buy.
Conclusion: In 1980 people didn’t play every day because it cost money to do so, but if you had this, let’s say on your Xbox, and played it every day you could get bored really quick. For its time, and even today if for nostalgia alone, it is still a pretty good game and everyone should play this if they haven’t. If you are into Pac-Man, I would buy the arcade version on Xbox Live because it is only five bucks and takes you down memory lane.
Summary: I don’t think I have to tell most of you this: If you played one Pac-Man you’ve played them all. You can’t really make this 2D arcade classic much better than it already is, and it is a great title, but it shows it’s age, and the fact that it is re-released more than any
film doesn’t help. My suggestion is to pass it up unless you are a hardcore fan in search of some achievement points.
Conclusion: Pac-Man was created by Namco and was first released in 1980 by Midway. Both developer and publisher are still with us now and occasionally release updated, 3D versions of Pac-Man that never recapture the charm of the original arcade title.
Summary: Condemned 2 could be described as a blood bathed horror title in which you spend countless hours beating up anything and everything with sharp, heavy and disgustingly crude objects. Whilst this description could be deemed as accurate, it is clearly missing the finer details of such a title, such as the skull crushing sound effects as you compress a head into a closing door to even the screams of a drooling drug addict, as you blow his face off with a point blank shotgun.
Pros: Fantastically eerie atmosphere, Improved combat and forensic systems, A varied and complete experience
Cons: Not for the faint hearted, Nor for people who feel tempted to kill, Or even gamers who expect good multiplayer
Conclusion: If Lumines and Geometry Wars can bring something fresh with a retro feel, can Pac- Man not offer us a new adventure? Perhaps not. As it stands, Ms. Pac-Man is well worth a free trial download, but we can think of better Arcade games to spend your MS Points on.
