There are several different modes of play in Ms. Pac-Man for the NES, but the original arcade mode is the best part of the game. Everything else is just icing on the cake. The strange mazes, the two-player simultaneous modes, the Pac-Booster (which lets you go super fast), and the crazy difficulty level: these things are fun and add a little more bang for your buck, but the standard arcade mode alone is reason enough to add this game to your collection of early 1980s arcade classics.
Playing it now, Ms. Pac-Man is a slightly flawed port of an arcade gem. I was impressed with the presentation and had a lot of fun trying to beat my high score. This may not be a very impressive cartridge, but it gets the job done. If you have to choose between Pac-Man games, Ms. Pac-Man is always the right answer.
