I did have one complaint, though.
This is very close to the logic of Pacman, but you can tell that it has different logic than the arcade version of Pacman. In the arcade version, the orange ghost follows a random pattern that is close to you but isn't chasing you directly. But in this version, the orange ghost chases you directly.
It does visually resemble Pacman exactly, but the logic of the ghosts is off. If you're just playing for fun or getting this for your grandkids, nobody will notice. But if you're trying to beat some world records on Pacman, then this product will probably throw your game off.
All the games are:
*New Rally X
*Pac & Pal
+Appears to be a faithful clone of all games but Pacman
+Has a lot of old 80s games
+Lots of Pac-games
+Good, solid hardware
-Isn't a true clone of the regular Pacman artificial intelligence
-Only has one audio out, so you either need a splitter, or sound will only play from half of your TV
Its a good buy. I would say better than the atari flashback 2.0 console (the only good game on that was Centiped).
would recommend this for sure - I think I am playing it more than my kids.
Then the hardware. The toy is a great upgrade from the first pacman and ms pacman toy. The stick is more solid and the buttons look real. But there is one big mistake. The joystick must be on the left, and the fire buttons on the right! And those buttons are too stiff. So forget beating any Galaga high score on this. Firing the bullets will kill your left arm. It needs right arm muscles and good training to score reasonable. So the best thing to do with this toy is buy a real arcade joystick, 3 real arcade buttons, built yourself a nice stand up arcade cabinet, grab an old TV and put the things together with this toys PCB in the cab. Then this toy really becomes legendary!
Update: 2/13/11 The controller is response is fine. It just took a few games to get used to playing that old style joystick. The only thing I don't like is the buttons are situated on the controller for left handed players. I totally recommend this product.
The video looks great on LCD TV. Images are clean and movement on screen is fluid. I read that there were lag issues in earlier reviews, however, I can say that I experienced no noticeable lag issues when playing. The sound is what you expect. All familiar tones.
There are no surprises with the gameplay. You won't be getting anything new here. The game is still fun. Love competing for the high score. The game saves high scores.
Overall I'm pleased with the purchase and am having lots of fun with it.
