My family had some friends come over last weekend and we played this game like it was going out of style. Our friends were absolutely amazed by it. I leave you with this, if you are looking for an exact arcade port, this is pretty close, even though more precise ports exist for other consoles of course due to emulation and newer technology. The cool thing is, this is NOT a direct arcade port, its BETTER. There, I said it. I know some of you guys with Pac-Man fever may try to track me down for saying such a thing but its true. Try it and you will agree.
Power Play (Feb, 1992)
Logischerweise kann das einfache Spielkonzept mit der Komplexität moderner Geschicklichkeitsspiele nicht mithalten, trotzdem hat mich das Modul überzeugt. Entweder man liebt's oder man ignoriert's - das Prädikat "Beste Ms. Pac-Man-Variante aller Zeiten." ist der Tengen-Adaption allerdings nicht zu nehmen.
Mean Machines (Feb, 1996)
You can get used to the controls, but it's still a compromise.
Joystick (French) (Apr, 1992)
Très lassant pour ceux qui connaissent peu ou pas Pac-Man (si ils existent), hyper génialement extraordinaire pour ceux qui dépensaient, il y a dix ans de cela, des sommes indécentes dans la borne, Pac Man est un jeu qui ne devrait pas être noté car deux chiffres ne peuvent traduire plus d'une décennie d'existence, plus de dix années de bons et loyaux services, même si, et je me répère, Pac-Man n'est pas et n'a jamais été ma tasse de thé.
The Video Game Critic (May 03, 2006)
Ms. Pac-Man's directional movements are extremely touchy and unforgiving to say the least. Almost every time you die, it's because the defective controls sent you off in the wrong direction. The Genesis controller is definitely no substitute for a good joystick. There's another issue regarding the two-player simultaneous play. Since all the mazes (except mini) scroll up and down, when the players spread out, one tends to scroll off and is forced to play "blind". Despite its flaws, there are some terrific variations in this cartridge that you won't find elsewhere. The new mazes are well designed, and the boost option allows you to be super aggressive and clear out each maze in a hurry. But if you ever wondered why this cartridge never made much of a splash, now you know.
