Namco Bandai's second release for Wii is a compilation of nine original coin-op games and five enhanced titles designed specifically for the motion-sensing console. Classic arcade games include Galaxian, Dig Dug, Mappy, Xevious, Gaplus, Super Pac-Man, Pac & Pal, Pac-Mania, and Cutie-Q. All are emulated versions of the classic quarter munchers, with original cabinet artwork appearing as static backgrounds. The Wii-exclusive titles are re-imagined versions of past Namco hits, including Rally-X, Galaga, Gator Panic, Motos, and Pac'n Roll.
Rally-X Remix incorporates Mii characters in go-karts as they race across maze-like tracks, while Gator Panic Remix involves quickly targeting and whacking 3D chomping gators. Galaga Remix is styled after light-gun shooters, with players aiming the Wii Remote at swarms of incoming 3D targets to protect a perpetually rolling Pac-Man from harm. Pac 'n Roll Remix, inspired by the DS game, involves guiding the yellow mascot through an assortment of 3D, hazard-filled mazes. The final title, Pac-Motos, has players bumping enemies off a grid-shaped playfield. ~ Scott Alan Marriott, All Game Guide
