REVIEWS PAC-MAN and the Ghostly Adventur Review
Is the entire Ghostly Adventures series, including the TV show, a prequel to the rest of Pac-Man’s life? Because in my childhood I seem to remember Pac having a girlfriend and a kid, not worrying about Pac-puberty.

Yes, NBA Live was horrible last year. But this year's entry is a vast improvement. Just give it a try.

The Good: Mini-games are fun for awhile, some of the dialog can be funny

The Bad: Horrible graphics, Simlish speech is annoying, bad animations, repetitive, and just plain awful

There was a brief period when a bunch of adult oriented games came out to capitalize on The Sims style game play and this was one of them. 7 Sins stars you as a man who is trying to strike it rich, and get laid at the same time. While there's no overlying story other than this there's just barely enough here to keep you playing, but most will quite after just the second level.

The game is comprised of mini-games that are pretty crude and rude, and what these are for will be revealed in a bit. You're main goal is to invite women in an area to talk to you. You wander areas different areas and sit down with them, or engage in that activity, and try to reveal their sensitivites through dialog. Different icons represent these and you have to use trial and error to figure them out. There is rating bar that's broken up into six pieces that represents your relationship status with that female. Once you reach the top of a piece you can engage in an advancing dialog to further the relationship.

Different types of dialog represents things like machoness, sensitivity, being cool, showing off, being intellectual, funny, etc. When a chick doesn't like what you say they'll respond in that manner, and you also have three different meters to watch out for: Lust, Anger, and Stress. If you reach the peak of any of these you freakout and run out of the are and wind up dropping the meter of any relationship you were working on. This can be frustrating because you then have to go back and wander around everywhere trying to increase that meter again.

You can play mini-games to decrease these meters, but some are sepecific and some decrease them all. These range from peeing on bugs, jumping sheep over a saw, oogling boobs, viewing upskirts, or just some that decrease the meter without a mini game. If you do these they are sins so if you make at your sins you must do something to repent which is an angel icon. This can be done by eating a salad or just enganging the icon in a dialog with a chick.

This doesn't sound too bad, but it is when you have to get up and move to a different spot to engage in the same dialog you just did five minutes ago until you reach your peak then you can get laid. Even this has mini-games involved, but after you play each one a few times you're done. The animations are horrendous and the graphics are terrible, and the game uses Simlish type speech. Animations range from goofy things to awkward humping. Even with the nude patch this game isn't very interesting since each woman looks the same and there's just no character or charm to the game. Sure it's fun for a couple of hours, but after that you get sick and tired of the game.

It wouldn't be too bad if you could fly through the game, but even in the second level woman take forever to get high up enough to bring home and your meters fill up so fast that you have to play a min-game every 5 minutes and it gets so repetitive and stupid. Do everyone a favor and stay away from this game unless you're a real pervert or just plain bored.
