    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.

    So there are some great classic arcade games in here that you really can't find in any other compilation - Rolling Thunder, Galaga 88, Splatterhouse, Tank Force, and Rolling Thunder 2. However, I think it missed a LOT of games that should have been included - Dig Dug 2, Pac-Mania, Ms. Pac-Man, Pac-Man Jr., Pac-Land, Mappy and MUCH more.

    A decent but bare-bones compilation.

    Namco Museum does the bare minimum. It includes 10 games, far fewer than previous collections. There are no fancy menus or special features either. Pac-Man Championship Edition 2 is a decent addition that some people may enjoy. Overall, this collection is worth owning if you want some arcade fun on the go, but it's not worth $40.

    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 was initially so stoked about finally being able to play galaga after how many years, even dig dug...but when you’re playing the games the screen shrinks and then it sucks. Great to play again but wish the screen size didn’t shrink

    This game is just an okay game. It would’ve even nice if they made it a little bit more visuall appealing. Is like they jus put the game in a disk so we can play it on the switch.

    It has a average selection and they're fun, but the games play in reduced image. They should've allowed the switch to play in vertical mode to make full use of the original arcade dimensions.

    This is a really good value for the money. You get a lot and pay a little. Unfortunately, these games are not as inspiring as more premium titles. It is definitely worth the money though.

    Pretty good collection of classic games but overpriced in my opinion. If you remember playing any of these and find it on sale then it’s worth it.

    It has fun games but the actual game play is on a subscreen w/ a background resulting in a very limited screen size, about a third of the nintendo switch screen.

    I brought this game on Black Friday because it was a nice price. We have not opened it yet but I am hoping my son will like it because he loves the Museum.

    Pac Man is fun but could be better. The screen is too small and from level 2 on the ghosts are much faster than Pac man

    Was not all of what I expected. These games were the old school Atari games without the bling. Couldn't beat the price in the end.

    Can get a little boring, guess this is just a classic that needs to be played in an actual arcade.

    Simply put while the arcade classics are there was hoping to be able to play 3+ players on all the games.
