Apparently Bandai Namco is doing this summer one for the PlayStation platformer remakes! Pac-Man World: Re-Pac is out today on Switch and, following the Klonoa Phantasy Reverie Series, it shows that the Japanese developer is acknowledging and showing some love to some of our childhood favorites.

Early reviews have been dropping all week, and as we work through the NL verdict, we wanted to share what others think about Pac-Man’s return to 3D platforms. We’ll let you know what we think as soon as our review is ready!

So far, there is only one Switch review at the time of this writing, from Pocket Tactics. The outlet gave the game a disappointing 5/10, saying that other platformers have already done everything Pac-Man World does better:

“That’s the nagging question that keeps me from playing Pac-Man World Re-Pac, the millionth remaster of a classic 3D platformer I’ve seen in recent years, where exactly does the remaster train stop? loved Donald Duck’s Quack Attack, another classic platformer from the PS1 era, but is it worth a remaster? and the money could be better spent on a new IP.”

Our friends at Push Square were a bit more generous, giving the game a 7/10 on PlayStation 5:

“Pac-Man World Re-Pac is a fun Pac back in time from an era when 3D platformers were much more prominent than they are today. While it doesn’t top some of its contemporaries like Crash Bandicoot Warped and Super Mario 64, Pac-Man World is not to be missed if you’re looking for another solid 3D platformer.”

Destructoid felt the same way about the remake on PS5, also giving it a 7/10:

“With low-key stakes (along with a low-key $30 price point) and a firm consistency with level design, Pac-Man World Re-Pac It still kept me interested at all times. I’m not sure Pac-Man World Re-Pac It’s going to attract a lot more fans, but the ones it already had should be happy with this new packaging.”

God is a Geek reviewed the game on PC. They gave the remake a 6.5/10, citing that the underwhelming collectibles and underwhelming arcade-style levels don’t help Pac-Man stand out from the pack:

“The variety of levels is certainly nice, but the rather puny collectibles and underwhelming arcade-style levels let the game down. If you’re a fan of the hungry yellow disc, you’ll probably have fun with the remake, but don’t.” go thinking it’s an essential purchase otherwise”.

Digitally Downloaded takes us back to the PS5, and they gave Re-Pac a solid 8/10, acknowledging that it’s more for fans of the original and those nostalgic for ’90s 3D platformers:

“When I discover that my complaints largely have to do with wishing there were more contents in a game that’s already perfectly enough, I know I’ve had a good time. The original game sold 1.5 million units, was well received by critics, and warranted several sequels. Bandai Namco is more than justified in testing this to see if there is room to revive the Pac-Man World property.”
