We posted about this a little while ago, but I forgot to post my impressions about the game as I recently had a chance to see one in person. Namco has released another Pac-Man cabinet for arcades but this one is quite a bit smaller than your standard arcade cab – it’s meant for countertops. By using a high-quality LCD screen they have basically taken the large 25th anniversary edition of the game and stuffed it into thismore compact and space saving box. It actually looks really nice in person and plays just as you would expect it too, although the joystick itself is a little bit small so an avid Pac-Man player may have to get used to that. This unit also has Ms. Pac-Man and Galaga available to play. There are two units, one for coin-op and one for home, the home edition being slightly cheaper due to the lack of coin-mechs. Now I would like to see Namco release a coin-op version of Pac-Man CE (available on Xbox Live Arcade) as Pac-Man belongs in a real arcade!

    That does sound like an ideal home cabinet, though as cool as Pac Man is, I’d spend most of the time playing Mrs. Pac Man. (Though Galaga would get considerable play time from me and my Dad.)
