Still an age old classic that many will enjoy.
More could have been done with the license on Xbox Live.

Pac-Man is renowned around the world for being one of the most famous titles ever. Fortunately players can now relive the simple mechanics that made Pac-Man so great on Xbox Live. For the cheap price of 400 points, the very least you will be walking away with is an easy 200 achievement points.

Placed inside a maze, in control of what can best be described as a half eaten cheesecake, you must eat all the dots whilst avoiding four ghosts that are constantly trying to find you. In each of the four corners you can eat a power pellet that will allow you to eat these ghosts for a short period of time. As you progress through the game you will quickly notice that the enemies are faster, smarter and can easily outwit the best of players.

Whilst the game could have been greatly improved with graphical upgrades, additional features and possible online play, Pac-Man still provides an enjoyable experience and frantic situations as the artificial intelligent is still as sharp as ever. Whilst the artificial intelligence is not quite comparable to those seen in current generation gaming titles, you will still find yourself caught out due to the relatively clever and simply game design.
