Pac-Man Party was released as a celebration of the 30 anniversary of the original Pac-Man arcade game. As such, it could have been an afterthought to developers, but it turns out to be a surprisingly fun package of mini-games. The cookie-hunting storyline is admittedly lame, and the rules to the board game that frames the mini-games can be a tad hard to grasp. But the mini-games themselves are quite enjoyable. There's a ton of variety among them and a lot of very creative premises -- something we can truly appreciate in a market flooded with Wii mini-game collections. Plus the whole package is made all the sweeter by the inclusion of three old-school arcade games that will entice parents and (hopefully) intrigue curious kids.
