Namco Museum 64 User Reviews
Namco is back yet again with another collection of past arcade favorites. This time they have given us Pac-man, Ms. Pac-man, Galaga, Galaxian, Pole Position, and Dig-Dug. There is not much to begin with, but I have one question. Can this game have the addictive feel that the arcade versions once and still do have?
Pac-man is a fairly simple game. You control a small circle shaped character whose main objective is to clear all of the dots out of a maze, by eating them. At the same time, you are avoiding contact with four enemy ghosts that are chasing you. If you touch a gh...
6 perfectly-converted classics. Customizable options. Can save high scores to memory card.The bad:
One of the best N64 classic titles released late in the system's history, this compilation features Pac-Man, Ms. Pac-Man, Galaga, Galaxian, Pole Position, & Dig Dug. All the games look just like they did in arcades back in the 1970s & 1980s, plus they include special operator-adjustable options (for changing difficulty, extra lives, etc.)
Controls are excellent, easy to learn, and customizable. You often need only to use the control pad or stick and one button for other actions-worth noting that there's no sterring wheel compatibility/option for Pole Position, which takes a little bit of the...
Perfect conversions of 8 1970s & 1980s arcade classics. All the games can be configured to a certain degree. 3 games have Arrangement versions which mix them up nicely.The bad:
12 classic Arcade games for under 30 bucks sure is hard to beat as far as value goes. This disc features Pac-Man, Ms. Pac-Man, Dig Dug, Galaxian, Galaga, Pole Position, Pole Position 2, Pac-Mania, and 4 games that weren't in arcades: Pac-Attack (first debuted on Sega systems), plus "Arrangement" versions of Pac-Man, Galaga, and Dig Dug, which add gameplay variations such as power-ups, boss battles, and 2-player co-op/competitive play plus continuing! Thest games have been perfectly converted from the old arcade machines down to play controls, although it takes a little time to relearn the P...
Six games for the price of one.
Pac Man, dig-dug, Galaga, Ms. Pacman.
Galaxian and Pole Position aren't really that great anymore.Summary:
I like these compilation games. It allows us to expirience the games that used to be the best. Pac-Man and Ms. Pac-Man are still really fun to play. Dig-Dug is still fun and Galaga is still an adicting game. However, Galaxian hasn't aged well and neither has pole position. It gets kind of annoying whenever you bump into another car your car will blow up. Still, the game is still worth checking out just for the four games that are good. Another fun thing is that the game is set up like an arcade machine. You push a button to get more credits. Unfortunately, this kind of is redundant...
this is one of the best games Ever!!!
Buy this game
A bunch of arcade hits, kept in there origanal form.The bad:
There are a bunch of games, all in there origanal form, including: Dig-Dug, Galaga, and Pole Position.
But Namco, in all there smarts included there "Arangements" of these games, from the 80's. The Galaga Arangement is really good, but the Dig-Dug and Pac-Man arrangements don't get bragging rights.
Namco will probably continue making these collections for every system.
I'm giving this game a 4.9, not a 5.0 because of Pac-Man arrangement.
