i don't know why I keep coming back to this game, its just very addicting for some reason.

This was an interesting sequel in the Pac man world. It added keys and power ups and a little more strategy. I like the simple Pac-Man format better. One new feature was the ability to become giant and super powered. It's fun but not memorable.

Hard to improve on perfection (although Ms. Pac-Man did just that). Super Pac-Man falls flat for me. It retains the gameplay of its predecessors, but not their charm. I guess it has better graphics (shoes instead of dots?), but the original Pac-Man isn't about graphics anyway. His design couldn't be any simpler, but it is iconic, and in a way the presentation here seems like a step backward. They slapped a bow on him and called it Ms. Pac-Man and it was great, making him bigger wasn't super.

discovered this one a few years ago,and found myself playing it more than even the original pac mac which i loved the the late 80's

from the planet kripton. he can leep tall buildings in a single jump. its super pac-man.

Super Pac Man!...It's okay. Not the best Pac Man game, but it's fun. Just eat your way through plenty of levels, although it looses some of it's charm from the original, super pac man is worth a game. So try it and see if you enjoy it. It's really personal preference.

 Top Gun - NES
"The legendary cockpit view shooter for NES. For 1987 this was like whoaow... I get my own F-14 simulator in my house!!! The game itself wasn't bad, with competent missile lock-on & satisfying gun fire. And of course its infamous landing sequence... I could never land it in the day. How was I supposed to know the correct velocity... And it kept saying Right! Right! Did that mean "correct" or move to the right?? Always ended up flying over the carrier and exploding. Ha-Haah! Part of its charm." - leaon79s

 Top Gun - Konami - Crappy Handhelds
"For an LCD of the time it's really not that bad. At least you get to shoot down enemies in a cockpit view and compete for a high score (provided you had friends around) - pretty much all the important stuff. For Konami to put their name there it has to have some semblence of quality… And the sticker & design of the device itself does make it look kind of cool… But it's not really Top Gun without the landing sequence…" - leaon79s

 Half-life - PlayStation 2
"The pioneer of the immersion via cut-sceneless in-game storytelling style, and the one that made me feel REAL FEAR for the first time in a video game. Having this big-as giant robot monster thingee chase you from behind…oh, scary-scary… Defined by a lengthy campaign in an immensely elaborate setting & impressive enemy AI. The PS2 DS2 is undoubtedly a poor substitue for keyboard & mouse, which makes this version inferior to the PC original but… An FPS gamer's prerequisite regardless of platform." - leaon79s

 Mega Man Anniversary Collection - PlayStation 2
"It sure beats having to try to keep up copies of all of these games individually. If this collection had only half of the games it actually has on it, even the worst half, it would still be a great compilation! Anyone wanting to get into Megaman, this is all you need to own for quite awhile." - whtevrhpnd2mary
