Namco Museum Arcade Pac Reviews
However you choose to play it, Galaga ’88 is worth experiencing. For those who struggle to engage with the older fixed shooters, it’s a nice game to bridge the gap between those classics and more modern shoot ’em ups. And for those who have been happily following the series since its earliest days, it’s a fascinating and well-designed evolution of the formula. It’s one of Namco’s best arcade games — and one that doesn’t get talked about nearly enough these days.
Namco Museum Arcade Pac tries to let retro game lovers have more of their cake and eat it, too, by throwing in the more modern Pac-Man Championship Edition 2 Plus into the mix. While it dishes out a nice serving, I wish this particular treat came with a few more slices as it's missing several old-school Namco classics. Still, it's a pretty good mouthful for fans of retro games who also want the sugar rush of Championship Edition 2 Plus.
If you're a Pac-Man diehard, you'll find a lot to love with the Namco Museum Arcade Pac. Otherwise, I'd give this one a pass.
