Namco Museum Remix review

You're better off with the memories

If you were stepping through the Museum curtain anticipating a classic romp through the likes of Rally-X, Galaga, and Pac-Man prepare to be dissappointed, horrified, and possibly a little offended. These are the unfortunate titles infected by the Remix. Just look at how Galaga has been reduced to a idiotically easy light gun game starring Pac-Man's head in a flume.

Above: How could this be anything but Galaga?

Museum Remixseems to be obsessed with Pac's limbless head, because you'll spend a lot of the game controlling it with the analog stick. From the lame overworld to Pac Moto, a king-of-the-hill knock about you've seen a thousand times better in many a Monkey Ball, rolling his little yellow noggin just plain sucks. If you need further proof, try the re-imagined Pac 'n Roll (This ain't yo' daddy's Pac-Man!) although we don't recommend it.

As for remaining remixes, Gator Panic and Rally-X: Absolute shit. They're not justbad updates.The motion controls are incredibly stupid, andthe game compensates with gameplay so easy it's almost insulting.
