The Xbox Live Deal of the Week this week belongs solemnly to Pac-Man Championship Edition DX. If you haven’t tried out any of the Championship Edition’s of the new Pac-Man games then this is the week you should hop on. This game has you chasing lines of pellets down and as you collect fruit, more of the map is revealed with new pellets, they aren’t available all at once. As you are chomping at pellets, you are passing sleeping ghosts who wake up and start a train of ghosts following you. Collecting enough pellets unlocks the power pellets where you turn around and eat all the ghosts in the most satisfying way ever.
Now my explanation sounds simple yet its the presentation that sets this apart. For starters, the music in the game is that type of techno that anyone can get behind. Plus the noise building up as you eat ghosts and watching your score build up is what keeps bringing people back. 400 Microsoft Points is cheap for a game that will steal hours out of your life and thrives on the competitive nature of beating your friends top score. Their is always the demo for you to try before you buy.
