  1. The game can be repetitive at times, and it certainly wasn’t made for the action-hungry crowd. But if you to spend a night with the world’s most interactive museum, Battle of the Smithsonian is a fun ride.
  2. 75
    Not exhilarating, not mind-blowing, but surprisingly solid. Good job, Pipeworks, you made a game that's educational, simple, and, best of all, never outstays its welcome.
  3. 60
    One of the better movie-based games, and one that packs in a lot of variety, even if it does feel somewhat-limited in parts.
  4. Official Nintendo Magazine UK
    Bland and unimaginative. [July 2009, p.93]
  5. Games Master UK
    Go and see the movie instead - it's cheaper, it stars Ricky Gervais and they serve popcorn. [July 2009, p.82]
  6. A few cute moments can't disguise this movie tie-in's biggest problem: its criminally short length.
  7. You’ll breeze through this game in about two hours and have nothing left but three mini-games pulled directly from the story and perhaps a few collectibles to find. A real travesty when you consider that watching the film takes just about as long but is much cheaper.
  8. Nintendo Gamer
    Contains tiny needles of goodness, but they're buried in a giant haystack of vomit, poison and rabid dogs. Not fun. [July 2009, p.61]
