    Pac-Man tries eating dashes instead of dots!

    I am in the minority on this game. Most reviews I have ever read about this game talk about how terrible it is. Now, compared to the arcade version of Pac-Man, there is no comparison. Maybe it's nostalgia. But this i... Read Full Review

    True to arcade form

    Pac-man, not one of the better games to get on the wii's virtual console, but still, a pretty good classic game.

    The good parts of this game is the the gameplay, the gameplay is the same as it has been for the past 27 years. The old sound effects will surely bring back memories of playing it on the arcade. There is the same challen... Read Full Review
