This version of Ms. Pac-Man never pretends to be an exact Arcade duplicate (for that you need Namco Museum Volume 3 for the PlayStation), but it works quite well for its intended purpose: entertainment.
What is there to really say about Ms. Pac-Man? The original arcade was a whole lot of fun. Sure, it wasn't a Mario 64 with the flashy graphics, but it was a blast to play. This new version of Ms. Pac-Man for the Super NES is the same way. It doesn't have scaling and rotation effects. It doesn't have cool sounds or cool graphics. For some, I can see how this is old-fashioned but for me, it's refreshing. I liked all of the various modes you can change like the size of the board and they type. The turbo addition is a nice touch, too. I was a little surprised to see slowdown at times when the board scrolled up or down.
Total! (Germany) (May, 1997)
Letztendlich ist Pac-Mans weibliches Gegenstück, ebenso wie er selbst, heutzutage nicht mehr gerade das Gelde vom Ei. Bedenkt man das fortgeschrittene Alter des Spiels, ist das ja auch wenig verwunderlich. Daß das Spiel mit der Dame dennoch 90 DM kostet, ist allerdings kaum zu verzeihen, zumal Ms. Pac-Man außer dem Zweispieler-Simultanmodus keine Neuerungen zu bieten hat.
