chaossebba's Pac-Man Championship Edition DX (Xbox 360 Games Store) review

Epileptics be warned.

My previous encounters with Pac-Man were a long time ago, and I decided to get this since I had a case of Pac-Fever.
 
I did not regret it.
 
There's not actually alot to say about Pacman:CE DX. There's a ton of different mazes to play in, different visual styles, and even a couple of different game modes such as:

  • Ghost Hunt: where your only goal is to get as much ghosts as you can in one Power Pellet chain (My current record is 99)
  • Score Attack: 5/10 Minutes of score attack, nothing special
  • Time Trials: a game where you have to collect a certain amount of Fruit within a time limit
  • Free Mode: Just play however you want
 
All of these modes combined with all the maps and visual styles available will probably keep high-score junkies entertained for a while. But if you're not the kind of guy to shoot for high-scores, there's not THAT much of a draw to keep playing.
 
There's still something strangely addicting about just getting a chain of 30 ghosts behind you, then rushing to that power pellet for massive points. And I didn't exactly think to spend my evening playing Pac-Man, but I'm not complaining.
 
So to the point, you could certainly do alot worse for 800 points.

Perhaps years of being restrained by the limited amount of ghosts and pellets on the classic Pac-Man board gave me a greater appreciation of the fact t...
