  1. Here we have a game about a character-driven movie, where the character shines. It may not be stellar, but Napoleon is plenty fun all around.
  2. As a game, it's a little bit hard to recommend this, especially considering that it's basically just an assemblage of Flash-style games, the kind you could play for free on a movie promo site.
  3. 45
    The real reason why you should just forget the game in general is that it's simply not fun. There are moments where the mini-games approach mild entertainment, but you can have just as much fun -- if not more -- playing a free Flash game. Gosh.
  4. 40
    In the end, Napoleon Dynamite: The Game does little to fight the stereotype of low quality licensed games.
  5. 40
    Unfortunately, this collection of average minigames and overused sound bites is likely to be a disappointment to even the most diehard Dynamite fan.
  6. It looks and sounds good enough, but an annoying and punishing difficulty level - right off the bat - kills any genuine fun most people could have would a game like this.
  7. Basically, avoid this one at all costs; it's pretty much the "ET" of the PSP.
