Pac is back in an all new experience for a whole new generation of fans. Pac Man and the Ghostly Adventures game has an original story that is inspired by the show as well as all the charming characters from the highly anticipated Pac Man and the Ghostly Adventures animated series created and produced by Avi Arad, acclaimed director and founder of Marvel Studios. The story begins as the menacing ghosts escape from the creepy Netherworld to invade PacWorld. These frightening ghosts, ghouls, and goblins wreak havoc on the population and cause nothing but trouble wherever they go. Pac and his pals rise to the challenge of protecting their home and embark on an epic battle. Pac and his 2 best friends, Spiral and Cylindria, rise to the challenge of protecting their home, in a big, bustling, bonkers world of action, adventure, and just plain wackiness. All the while fighting for: Friendship, Freedom and the Future. Pac is Back.

4.0 out of 5 stars A-Maze-Ing November 5, 2013
Platform for Display:Wii U
Platformers have never quite been the same since the end of the PS2 era. It's a genre that has mainly fallen into the hands of various indie developers, who seem to try and reinvent the wheel several times with each passing year. Sure, we'll get our Marios and Donkey Kongs, but for the most part, platformers have become an increasingly less marketable genre. Heck, even the latest Banjo game had the formerly lovable mascot driving Lego-esque vehicles. As a whole, the market has become incredibly cynical, and not open to games that, well, feel like games, and most of the AAA platformers we do get are stale or outright bad, with the exception of most Nintendo products.

Which brings me to Namco, who has had a very similar struggle to reinvent Pac-Man, its flagship character for over 30 years. You name the genre, there's been a game with his bright, rounded face on the cover. Yet, with the exception of a string of great 3D platformers about a decade ago, and some wonderfully trippy Championship Edition entries, the old dog has relied mainly on ports and retreads to survive, while his wife has been a permanent fixture in bowling alleys, laundromats, and bars the world over (along with Galaga, of course.)

So it's fitting then, that these two struggles collide headfirst in "Pac-Man and the Ghostly Adventures", an attempt to reboot the character inside of a 3D platformer. The result is a refreshingly uncynical romp that hearkens back to the early 2000's, when a game didn't have to do anything more than be a game. Surprisingly, in today's cutthroat world of people criticizing games for not having enough "emotion", this carefree formula delivers in spades.

There's not much here in the way of narrative, but for formality's sake, here's the basic set-up.

5.0 out of 5 stars Pac-fun for the whole family! November 5, 2013
By JC SD
Platform for Display:Wii U
Even though I'm a Pac-Man fan since the 80's, this game feels like Pac-Man world but more like a Super Mario 64 game.
The graphics are beautiful and the difficulty it's like that of Mario 64. I love the game and would highly recommend this title to any Pac-man fan. It sure is a welcoming title for younger generations but the whole family would enjoy it.

5.0 out of 5 stars I love it. December 29, 2013
By Kevin
Platform for Display:Wii U
Bought it at target when it was on sale.

Thought it'd just be a goofy game like the T.V. show.

Found out I like it a lot more than the new cartoon. The play style is just like the ORIGINAL PS1 Spyro Games (the Insomniac Trilogy, you know, before Universal took it away from Insomniac and the franchise went to crap).

I just love it. If you know what the original Spyro games are like, you know what this game is like.

One major difference graphically - the colors don't give me a splitting migraine (it's true, Spyro gives me a terrible headache after I play on it for a while). The colors are nicely diffused but still bright and enjoyable.

Grab this game, young or old, if you are a fan of this type of gameplay.

Edit: Thought I'd give an update - I just beat this game. The ending may be considered lacking by some, but it had me laughing my butt off. If you know the cartoon, you'd enjoy the humor. The bosses are also very easy, that's alright for me, I enjoyed the game. The game is definitely geared towards kids. My only complaint is the controls for the balloon form are lacking. Thankfully the devs put a ton of save spots all over the place to compensate.

Still 4-5 stars.

5.0 out of 5 stars Super Mario Pac-Man Style November 2, 2013
Platform for Display:Wii U|Verified Purchase
The game is a must have for fans for the Pac-Man franchise though obviously meant for the younger generation with this game it's still a fun and entertaining one to play for almost everyone especially those fans of Mario Bros too. The game style feels almost exactly like Super Mario's Bros throughout each level from battling enemies to power-ups which are a mixture of unique and others copied somewhat like with the fire/ice abilities Pac gets and some levels.

The graphics are great and the soundtrack fits nicely throughout the levels again though it plays almost exactly like a Mario game so if you have played those games you'll feel a sense of deja vu though don't let that turn you away from this game overall it's still a fun one. So for fans of the Pac-Man and looking for a new game here's one to take a look at.

4.0 out of 5 stars Pac is back! December 21, 2013
Platform for Display:Wii U
While the 3DS version of the game is fun, the Wii U one is hands down better in every aspect. The graphics and voice acting is far superior and the mutliplayer and arcade minigames add replay value after defeating the wimpy bosses.

4.0 out of 5 stars Even the Pac-Man purest will enjoy this version December 28, 2013
Platform for Display:Wii U
I have a Wii U system and this game is very addictive. Even though this was specifically designed for the Wii U, I find myself using the Nunchuck device to navigate the course. Instead of going around a static maze of the original Pac-Man arcade version, gamers are able to enter an entire environment where the Pac-Man, ghost and other characters live. The only annoying aspect to it is the very beginning of the game where there is a lot of talking by the characters.

Audience: This is a game for a general audience (ages 8 to 100).
Pace: Those who are more experienced Gamers may find the pace a bit slow.
Violence Level: This is a mild game.
Environment: The environment is colorful and not complicated.
