The Pac-Man Game Nobody Wanted

It is possible to mess with traditional traditional gameplay and have it be fun, but it needs to be excecuted properly. When Mario stepped through the looking glass into the third dimension on the N64 it was a natural progression of ther gameplay. Now instead of playing and jumping in the realm of 2D Mario 64 added another dimension to the gameplay. Platforming works in 3D and some would argue it works better in 3D than it did in 2D. One form of gameplay that doesn't translate well to the 3D environment is maze chase. This is the type of game that Pac-Man fans know and love, so while it's not strange for Namco Bandai to attempt to create a family friendly 3D platformer making it a Pac-Man game maybe a huge misstep.

lol,

Namco seriously tries hard to give Pac-Man a new spin and the real treat isn't the 3-D re-imagines it's the new spin on the classic gameplay. Pac-Man CE and Vs has already proven that a new take on an old formula is just as fun.

Let's rephrase that. It's "The Pac-Man Game Gamers Never Wanted."

Kids and parents will most likely love the show that Disney XD are creating and they'll buy the game. I previously worked in retail and there were next to little selection for younger gamers especially for the Xbox.

We are not the target demographic for this game and that's perfectly fine because if this is successful, it supports Namco's other products for the core audience including Tales of, Tekken, Ni No Kuni, Project X Zone, etc.

Well I'm a little excited, my sister and I used to enjoy the pac man world games. If the game can be as good as the pac man world series, especially the first 2, then I might go check it out.
