Pac-Man World 3 – Consumer Guide

Tera Kirk's picture

According to the ESRB, this game contains: Cartoon Violence

Parents don't have much to worry about with Pac-Man World 3. The game's violence is tamer than that found in most action cartoons, and there's no bad language. There is, however, some minor innuendo. When a friend warns him about a sudden surge of spectral energy, Pac-Man declares, "Details of my spectral energy should be between me and Ms. Pac, thank you very much."

Platformer fans will find nothing new or interesting here; this game is just a rehash of moving platforms, powerups (electro-shock pellets that make Pac-Man shoot lighteing when he punches, a pellet that encases him in chrome, etc.) and lots of useless things to collect.

Pac-Man fans will find that, after having his gameplay vastly innovated, the hungry yellow ball is more of a conformist than ever—and that's just sad.

Deaf and Hard of Hearing gamers should have no trouble with Pac-Man World 3: there are captions for all the cutscenes, and no significant auditory cues. Even tthe interview with Pac-Man's creator Toru Iwataru is subtitled.
