    Not likely to be star in anyone's "Top 10 games of 2009" list, Night at the Museum 2 (the video game) is a solid, straightforward, platform game particularly suited to the 7 to 10 age group. The game's museum environments are scattered with audiologs with information on natural history from dinosaurs to space flight. Each log is short enough to keep my 7 and 5 year olds interested, andNot likely to be star in anyone's "Top 10 games of 2009" list, Night at the Museum 2 (the video game) is a solid, straightforward, platform game particularly suited to the 7 to 10 age group. The game's museum environments are scattered with audiologs with information on natural history from dinosaurs to space flight. Each log is short enough to keep my 7 and 5 year olds interested, and they break up the action nicely. There's no combat, per se, there's puzzles to defeat the enemies, and there's platforming to spice things up a bit too. Add in a load of item collecting, and a plot that *sort of* follows the movie, and there's a nice solid game in here. I've given in 8, but you can add or take away a point if you're under 10, or in your teens, respectively.... Expand

  1. A few cute moments can't disguise this movie tie-in's biggest problem: its criminally short length.

    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. The biggest gripe about Battle of the Smithsonian – aside from the fact it’s simply a straightforward marketing tie-in to help rake in extra cash alongside the film – is that it just doesn’t offer much length or substance for the $40 you’re being asked to spend on it.
