    Good Collection of the Classics

    This game collection includes some of my old-school favorites (but not all). And while it's fun to kill some time eating ghosts and blasting invading alien ships, the game screen areas are small and the controllers can be a bit difficult to quickly manuever. Overall, it's a fun addition to the Switch.

    The real treat on this collection is Pac-Man Vs., which hasn't been available since the day of the GameCube, but the other games on here are good stuff. It could probably stand to have a few more titles on it but Rolling Thunder, Galaga, and Pac-Man Championship Edition 2 are all highlights on what's an overall pretty sharp collection. Stuff runs well on both portable and stationary modes with the Switch so this is ideal for concentrated play or a quick break.

    What else can you say? If you want pacman and a few others, then get it. Wait for a sale of course

    Namco Museum Arcade Pac has a plethora of old Namco arcade titles. Ranging from titles like Pac-Man to Splatterhouse there's something for any retro gamer to enjoy. This game also comes with a two player version of Pac-Man Championship Edition 2 and Pac-Man vs.

    Bunch of classics on here and a few arcade games that rarely see a re release. Splatterhouse 1 being the big stand out for me. MUST PLAY SPLATTING!

    This collection is not just PAC MAN or DIG DUG. This is worth picking up for SPLATTERHOUSE alone. There are some other rare arcade games on this that when bought separately will cost many times more then this collection.

    Available games in this compilation: Pac-Man (1980) Galaga (1981) Dig Dug (1982) The Tower of Druaga (1984) Sky Kid (1986) Rolling Thunder (1987) Galaga '88 (1988) Splatterhouse (1988) Tank Force (1991) Rolling Thunder 2 (1991) Pac-Man VS. (2003) Pac-Man Championship 2 (2018) This is a very good compilation with Pac Man VS. and Championship 2 having 2 player modes in addition to some classics like Pac-Man and Galaga. If you are a fan of these old school arcade classic games or if you enjoy the new modern style of Pac-Man Championship you will love this collection on Switch. Having these titles portable is something I could not have imaged back in the day.

    This collection of NAMCO arcade hits is really good provided you can appreciate their place in history. Some of these games are still great, but a few show their age (looking at you Tower of Druaga). If you are into preservation of classics, it's a must buy. If not, consider carefully whether you like the selection.

    I know it's supposed to be a remake of an older game but for the price you pay for everything the game/setup could've been a lot better. Even though Pac-Man is a classic they shouldn't of used the same "classic" graphics from the early 1980's. It looks exactly like it did 40yrs ago when you were playing it in an arcade. For the price you pay for a Nintendo switch they could of put some more effort into their product.

    I forgot how unforgiving games were. The nostalgic factor is great. Quite amazing how far games have come but it's always fun to revisit the classics and pass them along to the next generation. Worth the purchase.

    It's cool to play these classic games, but as usual, nintendo doesn't make it easy to play these games with a second player. I still have not figured out how to play anything with a 2p. Should not be made this hard. Game is to tiny to play on the switch itself, so I recommend not buying this to play on the go.

    I had seen the original Namco Museum Switch game but had missed it. When I saw this included several great games including up to Pac-man Championship 2. I somehow missed that this also includes Pac-man Vs which uses the free app released with Namco Museum to allow multiple Switch console play with only one person needing to own the game. Pac-man Vs is a great title and really fun to play in this set. All around this set is a nice improvement over the original Namco Museum game in both content and menu set options.

    I bought thos mostly for my 5 year old son to play. He's interested in gaming but his reading isnt quite strong enough for most modern games suitable for his age. I'm loving introducing him to all these classics and find myself playing more than him. The attention to detail is great. Having the ability to rotate the screen in handheld mode for a more accurate ratio these games were intended for and remapping the controls to suit the screen change is great. Any retro fan, older gamer, or ex arcade junkies should own this

    Trim, but solid compilation

    The Namco Arcade Pac for the Nintendo Switch is the successor to the Namco Museum compilations that we have been receiving for the past several years on several older systems. While we have seen most of these games before, what makes this particular compilation stand out? As you might expect, many of the classics are here. Pac-Man, Dig Dug, and Galaga are accompanied by a few new faces I have not seen in these Namco compilations before; a few more complex titles such as Splatterhouse and Rolling Thunder. Additionally, the recent Pac-Man Championship edition 2 is included, a game that sells on its own digitally. All the games seem to play very close to their original versions and I didn't notice any difficulty running them on the Switch. The menu screens are nice and the games do have some limited customization options, but I think the real breadwinner here is simply the fact that with the Switch we now have an easy way to play these classics on the go and then back at home without swit hing between a portable and home system. This let's your high scores stay aligned and intact. The game has online rankings as well. Even though this compilation is smaller than previous entries and doesnt include a few staple games like Ms. Pac-Man, I would still recommend this to anyone who likes to play these on the go. The quick nature of these games are perfect for portable play.
