So, got to play this game last night. Here's my review on it:
First, like Shaggy said, the game is defentily best with 3 or 4 players. It's a really fun game to do aganist other humans.
The gameplay has some similarties with the recent two Pac-Man games for 360 and PS3. All of the Pac-Men play at once, on the same maze, and the overall shape of the maze stays the same, but the lit areas and the paths with the dots and power pellets change as you play it. There are fruits you can eat for bonus points, the four ghosts chase you around, and the classic Pac-Man tune plays when you start it.
The major twist in this game, though -- when you eat a power pellet and become Super Pac-Man, you truly become 'Destroyer of men, killer of worlds!'
Cause besides the ghosts, you can also eat the other players!
In fact, that's how you win -- be the last Pac-Man left standing.
When you 'power up', you gain in speed also, so you can outrun those normal 'puny' Pac-Men and have them for lunch. It does seem like the control and handling of your Super Pac-Man is a little harder then when normal, so if you're trying to surive, use the tunnels and stick and move in the tight corners and sharp turns, and you can perhaps outlast the power up effect. Woe to you, though, if you get caught between two Super Pac-Man, or two of you are racing after a power pellet and he beats you to it!
If two normal or super Pac-Men make contact with each other, you 'bounce' off each other, like in Joust if you hit someone at the same level as you.
There's three rounds of play each game. Whoever wins the most rounds in the game is the overall winner.
This is really quite fun to play with other humans -- a great update to the old Pac-Man style of playing and is really a blast to play.
