A compilation that only for its historical value is already of incalculable value, especially for fans of Pac-Man.

The new collection is definitely worthwhile for those looking to collect the old gems of video games, however, for the rest of us it seems there are a few problems that might make us think twice before buying like control delay issues and sadly not fully supporting the swift movement of controllers' analog sticks

Pac Man Museum + is certainly packed full of arcade entertainment, but not all of its games were created equal.

PAC-MAN MUSEUM+ is yet another compilation of PAC-MAN titles, most of which fans have probably played before or purchased in previous compilations. It’s not a bad mix of games, and it was a fun way to show my kids these classic PAC-MAN games. However, I still feel like this was ultimately a cash-in for PAC-MAN’s 42nd anniversary. I would hope we’ll see a better, more complete collection on his 45th or 50th anniversary. I’d love to see some PAC-MAN World Rally, the PAC-MAN World games, and PAC-MAN Vs. all included in a future compilation. For now, if you’re new to PAC-MAN, this is a great entry point. If you’re a die-hard fan, there might be a couple of PAC-MAN titles on here that you’ve been jonesing to play. For the casual fan, you’re probably better off sticking with a previous compilation you likely already own.

Overall, this is a handful of games and a legal settlement away from being comprehensive, but it undoubtedly gives you a flavour for Pac-Man’s storied career – and between the ups-and-downs, there’s plenty to chew on.

Lots of games, but not all stars among Pac-Man's birthday guests. The essential emulation gives a no-frills experience to the old glories in a context tailor-made for chasing the online leaderboards, but the absolute lack of extras is a great disappointment.

For fans of Pac-Man and his historical pedigree, this is the best round-up yet, spanning decades and featuring his most notable titles. It's the kind of collection the current Wonder Boy release should have been. The arcade overworld is a nice touch, although the frame rate is a big letdown and really should have been ironed out. And, while you might spend a while tinkering and designing your arcade space, the attraction of the gimmick is ultimately short-lived. Presentation deficiencies aside, though, one can't really fault the comprehensiveness of the collection, nor the quality of the titles themselves (well, except Pac in Time). It's a Pac-festival, and while it certainly has limited appeal, it offers countless hours of gaming fun and an interesting historical insight into the yellow orb's evolution.

A good collection for long-term Pac-Man's fans, but the beloved character deserves a bit more than this.

Pac-Man, which has experienced more than 40 years of vicissitudes, is still popular in the game circle, as a perfect display of the charm of this series. However, this game is just a collection of fourteen previous game works of this series, without any new element. But for nostalgic persons and game players interested in Pac-Man, Pac-Man Museum+ not only represents a collection of the whole series, but also offers the best opportunity to rediscover the charm of the Pac-Man series.

In a collection celebrating a character via a customizable arcade, it's unfortunate there isn't as much care put into the customization of the player experience. Will I still be playing it often? Absolutely. A handful of these titles both promote Pac-Man's historic legacy, while standing on their own. Others, however, get lost in a game that is ironically all about mazes.

All in all, this is a good collection. It’s a shame about some of the flaws and omissions — particularly the rather raw deal Pac-Attack has ended up with — but perhaps the most troublesome issues can be patched. It’s certainly a decent celebration of the life and times of our spherical yellow hero — and the metagame element should keep you busy in the long term if the games included here aren’t already compelling enough!

While there are some notable omissions and questionable additions in this collection, PAC-MAN MUSEUM+ is just the thing for those looking for a trip down memory lane.

It doesn’t contain every Pac-Man game ever made, but Pac-Man Museum+ is the most complete collection yet, for better or for worse. We love its arcade presentation – jarring sound effects and all – and even outside of the games, there’s fun to be had trying to collect everything and decorating your arcade as you see fit. There are some duff games here of course, but you’ll likely find a gem that you never even knew existed – for us it was block puzzle Pac-Attack. Either way, this is a very nice little trip through Pac-Man’s history, and one we’ll keep jumping back into time and again.

As a Pac-Man fan, I love Pac-Man Museum+ as it features a fantastic variety of fun-filled games while also including clever challenges and a virtual arcade that you can decorate however you wish. Now, all we need is a Pac-Man World compilation.

Like all retro collections, PAC-MAN Museum + relies on nostalgia to sell itself, but its qualities go further: the games offered are varied and interesting, even though they all revolve around a single franchise. The quest mechanics give the title a huge replayability factor and more competitive players will be able to face the world comparing their scores, although the collection lacks online multiplayer. It is a collection suitable for retro game enthusiasts and anyone looking for a collection for parties and family gatherings.

The final result of Pac-Man Museum + is quite positive, especially if the player enjoys old games. With two occasional exceptions, the collection is full of good games, including some titles with addictive gameplay mechanics. The multiplayer options are great, the rankings are interesting and we have an interesting customization system. More technical options and extra content were lacking to make this an unmissable experience.

The end result is a package that surely carries quantity, with quality coming in at a close second. The good games included within are amazing, but in order to enjoy them you’ll have to delve into some very questionable ones first, which in the case of Pac-Man are some of the most questionable arcade games ever. Then again, having an easy pick-up for Pac-Man Championship Edition is awesome to have, and even then it’s a shame it’s presented the way it is.
