PAC-MAN needs very little introduction, regardless of your age or gaming knowledge. Namco’s original simple dot-eating mascot, Pac-Man, has always stood the test of time as an iconic character and, even now, is beloved by many. However, apart from the original simple game, people might not remember that Pac-Man took a fun trip into the 3D realm, but not the super-famous game simply called Pac-Man World. Well, it’s been several years since one of these 3D games was released and Namco (formerly Bandai Namco) has decided to return to its roots in a remake of PAC-MAN World, not surprisingly called , PAC-MAN World: Re-PAC. Is this remake worth returning to the lesser-known greatness of Pac-Man’s 3D adventure or should you stick with the classic 2D title? We find that in our review of Pac-Man World: Re-Pac for Nintendo Switch!
Pac-Man World: Re-Pac-Man The story follows the journey of Pac-Man, who was supposed to join his Dot-like family for his birthday, but they are all captured by ghosts and a powerful entity called Tok-Man. went. With no one to back down when his family and friends are in danger, Pac-Man travels to Ghost Island and saves the day! The story for Pac-Man World: Re-Pac is pretty simple based on the story, but it works to keep everything on top of the lot. Pac-Man doesn’t have to be a complicated narrative and does the best he can by watching our round hero eat ghosts, dots and fruits, which is legendary even in 2022. Plus, Pac-Man World: Re-Pac’s story is silly and fun which makes it perfect for all ages. Plus, we always enjoy a simple cartoon-like story.
Besides the simple story, Pac-Man World: Re-Pac is also a very simple game to play. Like the original, Pac-Man World: Re-Pac is all about simple gameplay and it works wonders. As the legendary yellow mascot, you’ll have giggle points that can be used to shoot and destroy threats and you can apparently eat super pellets to capture ghost enemies. When you’re not paying attention to the digital dots, you’ll be passing levels by climbing platforms, turning off buttons to unlock doors and pathways to progress through different levels. Nothing in Pac-Man World: Re-Pac is a real challenger—again a game made for all ages—but everything from attacking to advancing through the levels is solid and very well works from.
Unlike Crash Bandicoot and Spyro games, Pac-Man World: Re-Pac Again is pretty simple. Honestly, we hardly found any challenges while playing, which can be a bit easy for those who want a little more out of their platforming experience. There’s even an easy mode that seems really pointless but again, it’s E for everyone for a reason.
Pac-Man World: Re-Pac is only $29.99 which is an excellent price for a remake—and there should be more games at this price when they only improve on so many elements—but we can’t deny that. It’s not much different in Pac-Man World: Re-Pac. Yes, we have seen that the intro has been updated a lot and something has been done with the boss but not much is different. The whole game looks better with updated visuals to make it more HD than the early original PS1 title, but even so, it shows some age here and there and doesn’t really seem like a big difference overall.
