Critic Reviews for Chasing Ghosts: Beyond the Arcade
Visually arresting look at the dynamics of competition and camaraderie that animated a fascinating geek subculture will entertain just about anyone who's ever tried their hand at Pac-Man, while paying affectionate tribute to a bygone era.
...some who see this film will laugh at its protagonists, others with them. A little of both feels about right
Audience Reviews for Chasing Ghosts: Beyond the Arcade
Not bad, but not as great as 'King of Kong' was. Still a nice insight into classic gaming.
A decent documentry over the arcade game craze of 80's. The movie is more about the young players that made names for themselves playing arcade games and where they are now. Some bits are pretty funny over champs getting there high scores debunked by other players. The documentry feels like it runs long with nonsense fillers when it could have added advertisements from the era instead. The people interviewed are quite the characters.
Pretty fun doc about some of the people in a way more fun doc, The King Of Kong, and their 80s cohorts. Worth watching if you play video games.
