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

Pac Man Revamped

                Too many titles have been recreated for the HD era. Not too many, however, feel anything like their older counter parts. Along came Pac Man: CE and changed all that. CE feels like Pac Man to the core. The changes made make it all the better, but the creators were very careful not to change the formula. Pac Man has all ways been about scoring the most points. Because of this, Pac Man CE has taken out the levels. In its place is now a continuous timed session. The mazes consist of two halves, the right and the left. When all the Pac dots (along with the power pellets) have been consumed on one side, a fruit shows up in the opposite side that when consumed redraws not only the dots but the maze it itself. The game is much  more fun and fast paced.
               The other two major changes are the look and sounds. The colors are ultra bright and the music has a heavy beat, and to top it off it all runs in 1080p. Its been described by many players as Techno Pac Man. Rightfully so as it does strangely resemble the genre. This strange look compliments the fast exciting game play perfectly.                 
              Those who may complain about a lack of multi player, the best advice for them is to play the original. Pac Man: CE is exactly like Pac Man, one of the best single player experience.

Spawning countless sequels, a horrible cartoon, and that cool "Pac-Man Fever" song, Pac-Man is one of the kings of the game industry. Now in 2007 Namco comes with the crazy idea to re-do Pac-Man, to bring the gaming icon into the modern era. So how exactly do you dust off the o...

    This Pac-Man iteration is a refreshing take on the series. 0

    Pros Updated look that's a welcome change. Catchy soundtrack. The new features and game modes are a fun addition. Cons Ghosts are just as frustrating as always. Dieing in this game is harsh. Pac-Man Championship Edition is a revival of the classic game that I feel is the best in the entire array of Pac-Man games out there. This release for the Xbox Live Arcade costs 800 Microsoft Points ($10), is Single-Player, has 6 new game modes and an array of achievements. Championship Edition changes th...
