  1. Each level is a discrete entity; after solving one puzzle you may want to do the next, but if you're tired or hungry it is easy to put the game away for a while.
  2. There's no pretense here--this is a portable Lemmings game, as fun or frustrating as you remember. [July 2006, p.113]
  3. If you’re unfamiliar with the game, but you enjoyed "Exit" or some of the older (not the new crappy 3D) "Worms" titles, you’re sure to enjoy the simple yet engaging gameplay that Lemmings has to offer.
  4. But while the suicidal rodents look sharp and the gameplay is still some of the best puzzle gaming around, there’s no escaping the fact that Lemmings simply doesn’t bring much that’s new to the table.
  5. Purists may cringe at the pause option, allowing players to assess levels and assign abilities without fear of Lemmings bumbling into trouble, but it helps pinpoint creatures in a chaotic herd.

    The game isn't a huge innovation upon it's predecessors but remains as addictive as ever. One of the best games in the Lemmings franchise.

    Lemmings on the PSP is basically the same game it was 15 years ago. But with new-and-improved eye candy and on-the-go play, Lemmings is worth a fresh look, because some of the new (and old) levels will no doubt challenge that gray, gooey mass that sits in your skull.
  8. It's a great puzzle game, but be warned: aside from some never-before-been-scene levels and the ability to design your own, there's nothing truly new here, making the $40 price tag a little dubious. [July 2006, p.87]
  9. The pick up and play action of Lemmings make it perfect for quick runs, but the addictive nature of Lemmings might keep you around longer.
  10. Not much has changed in this latest take on Lemmings. [Aug 2006, p.64]
  11. Overall, Lemmings for the PSP is it still one of the best puzzlers of the sort around, and will keep even Lemmings fans busy for quite a while.
  12. But $40 is a lot to ask for yet another PSP port with tacked-on content--especially when you can find free versions of the game online. [July 2006, p.94]

    A historic game but a flawed puzzler with little to tempt hardcore thinking fans. [Apr 2006, p.113]
  14. The portability that saw the game through its tour of every major format during the '90s has finally failed the test of time, and it's the trawl of the cursor between one lemming and the next that does this interpretation the most damage. [Mar 2006, p.92]
  15. But we've all done Lemmings at one time or other, there's nothing new about this, and as much as it might sound like a good idea in your head it's a nostalgic itch you can scratch without spending £30 on another PSP game that makes you wonder why you ever doubted the DS would kick it all around the playground until its shiny little face was thumbsmeared to death.

    This game is just too bare. Sure, some reviewers will pick this one up, play it for an hour, and slap on a decent score, but not this reviewer.
  17. The only real draw here is the startingly robust level-creation tool. [July 2006, p.82]

    Lemmings. Not much more needs to be said. Who ever remembers the original Atari/Amiga/Mac/DOS version will instantly love this. It containsLemmings. Not much more needs to be said. Who ever remembers the original Atari/Amiga/Mac/DOS version will instantly love this. It contains all the levels from the original game and some new ones. I think it also comes with a level editor.

    This game is simple and can be complex too. You need a lot of strategy to beat some levels and you can also create your own levels andThis game is simple and can be complex too. You need a lot of strategy to beat some levels and you can also create your own levels and challenge your friends. It doesn't have a plot but this is not the kind of game that really needs it. Great game, you would pass hours with it, on the creation mode or beating the hard puzzles. Full Review »

    Its lemmings, and with that expectation is perfect. It cant get frustrating at times, but its fun.
