I recieved a NEO GEO POCKET COLOUR for my birthday in March and have been stuck on it since. It has outstanding colour and graphics for a console its size and great sound too. Many of the games are identical to the Mega Drive but considering the size and weight the Neo Geo Pocket Colour comes out above the mega drive any day. I currently own all three game boys, All three Nintendos, a playstation, dreamcast and game gear so I know a good console when I see one. This is a must buy and an essential for travelling or long journeys.

NEOGEO. This faithful pocket-sized reproduction of the early-80s arcade classic offers instant gratification for those who want to gobble up some spare time. Unfortunately, the joystick on this portable unit doesn't respond extremely well on sharp turns, which can be the kiss of death when you're being chased by those pesky ghosts Pinky, Inky, Blinky or Clyde. Play takes place in full-screen or scroll modes. Scroll mode poses more of a challenge as you can see only one corner of the board at all times, which can make it hard to avoid ghosts. It may not be as advanced as many other titles for the NEOGEO, but nothing beats the addictive arcade action of Pac-Man. If you are looking for a game to just pick up and play, snatch up this title. It's still as much fun as when you first played it at the arcade all those years ago. --Carrie Bell Pros: Retains all the charm and excitement of the original arcade classic One of the best games for short spurts of gameplay Safe for all ages Cons: Joystick response is weak on sharp turns No new additions to the original version
