The Video Game Critic
In general though, the colors appear more vibrant than most Atari 7800 titles. This version of Ms. Pac-Man is faster than most, and even in the very first stage she moves at a brisk pace. The controls are responsive but could be more forgiving; it's possible to get hung-up on turns if you're not exact with the controls. But the biggest flaw is the fact that you begin with five lives instead of three. If Atari was trying to emulate the original arcade game, why water down the difficulty with excessive lives? Even so, this game is a true classic, and it's as fun to play now as it ever was.

The Atari Times
Actually, there isn't really much of a review to do after just explaining the game, since the 7800 version plays a lot like the arcade version. The controls are good, as are the graphics in comparison, the sounds are sufficient (nothing huge to them or anything, but they work), and you get some intermissions too. You also get the choice of starting a game from one of the later levels as well, if you want. What else can I say, except to pick up this lady if you haven't already.
