If you're still suffering the lingering effects of Pac-Man fever, you'll be excited to hear that Namco's Pac-Man Collection repackages the infectious original with three other Pac-Man-themed games in a new anthology for the Game Boy Advance. Pac-Man Collection contains the original Pac-Man, plus Pac-Attack, PacMania 3D, and the never-before-seen-out-of-the-arcade Pac-Man Arrangement game.
Pac-Man plays just like you remember, and like Namco Museum's picture-perfect re-creation of Ms Pac-Man, it features spot-on control, graphics, cartoon cut-scenes, sound effects and, best of all, music from the coin-op (who can forget that opening theme?). As such, it's easily the best of this collection. PacMania 3D is basically a 3-D version of the original, and is just about as uninspired now as when it came out. Pac-Attack is a cool variation on such puzzlers as Tetris and Columns, and as such it's perfect for handheld gaming. Pac-Man Arrangement is an odd little game that plays much like the original but adds weird power-ups that, for example, make you gigantic.
Because Pac-Man Collection contains perfect replicas, there isn't much to gripe about, save that Ms Pac-Man is a far better game than the original, and you'll have to shell out for Namco Museum if you want that one. But if you're a retro gamer on the go who also want to track down ghosts and eat power pills, this package is sure to satisfy your appetite. --Andrew S Bub

There are 4 games in the one cartridge. Pac-man, Pac-attack, Pacmania and pac-man arrangement. If you are a Pac-man addict, you'd love this game, and if you're not, i still believe you should have a go in the dot eating scheme of things.
My favourite is Pac-man arrangement, where you don't only have to deal with bigger and badder ghosts, but also a variety of delightful mazes. And tie this in with the catchy tune you are sure in for a treat.
I was a Pac-man addict, but now after playing this game i am a Pac-manoholic. My advice is buy it and enjoy!!!
If puzzles are your game PACMAN COLLECTION is your game.
WARNING: Can be highly repetitive. Not for people that get bored easily!
I love the original arcade pac man but my partner loves the others alot.
My only issue is that some of the games were designed to not let you see around the corner like original.
As for the packaging and delivery, I could not be happier. It looks brand new a leven though the description was conservative. It can in 3 days looking brand new. I turned it on without needing to blow on the cartridge or anything. Very happy with the product and service.
On the other hand, if you want the original Pacman and Pacmania, then it's worth the price. I personally enjoy the latter... which of course can be used via various emulator programs.
Did I say emulators? I retract that statement, and claim total ignorance of these "less legit" means of playing games that all own (honest) :)
