    Time to sink my teeth in a BAD game. And I mean a BAD game.

    I like Pac-Man. But I HATE the 2600 version. This port epitomizes an AWFUL port that sucks a golfball through a garden hose.

    This version of Pac-Man has HORRIBLE graphics, even by 2600 standards, HORRIBLE gameplay, HORRIBLE sound. This game is so HORRIBLE I gave up on it after 30 seconds. The mazes barely represent what they're supposed to, the dots aren't even dots, Pac-Man looks like a horribly mangled mutant, and oh yeah, gotta love this... the ghosts blink, so if you gobble a power pellet, wish to your lucky stars your timing is good to kill the ghost, otherwise you're dead.

    Even if you're a classic gaming enthusiast and a Pac-Man fan, do yourself a favor and skip the 2600 version of Pac-Man. Owners of a 5200, however, have access to a SUPERB port of Pac-Man which is absolutely worth it for 5200 owners.
