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: Graphics: Same As The Orignal just sharper and high definition Sound: And Music: the music is the same as the classic the sound is slighly better than the orignal Achievements: All achievement are simple such as eat x on round x there is a pretty challenging on which makes you eat 4 ghost within a stage the 200G is still pretty easy.
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.
Excerpt: Everything here is represented almost precisely the way you would expect. The center of the screen is taken up by a vertical bar that depicts the action in its original aspect ratio. The edges have artwork that adorned some original cabinets. They’re a nice way to fill the space that otherwise would have existed. The bleeps and beeps you hear as Ms. Pac-Man explores each arena also remain untouched.
Excerpt: Ms. Pac-Man, the sequel to the most popular arcade game of all time, is a paradigm for sequels everywhere. While retaining all of the necessary gameplay elements of the original, Ms. Pac-Man adds just enough twists to be distinctly interesting. In fact, although some might argue otherwise, Ms. Pac-Man is by all measures an improvement upon Pac-Man, with multiple level maps and more-complicated artificial intelligence. Ms.
Pros: It's Ms. Pac-Man!, Sound effects are well done, Great port
Excerpt: Hey, great! Pac-Man! Everybody loves Pac-Man, right? Right? The original game is 20 years old, and you're still yearning to play it, right? Why, I'm sure you just got out of line down at Blip's Arcade just to read this review! Well, here's the pertinent info, right up front: The Neo Geo Pocket Color version of Pac-Man really isn't very good. Sure, it's Pac-Man.
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.
