No really, this should have been a game that I really enjoyed...history, museums, not overflowing with action yet challenging, but no. First of all, I understand that everything is taking place at night, but does it have to be so dark in the museums? I mean, really, even with that "super" flashlight I could not see a darn thing - especially in the Air & Space Museum. The controls were all over the place, I would have to stop and think about what button I had to push for the flashlight, the key chain, the map, changing the powers of the tablet, etc etc. I must have fallen off the playform in the A&S museum 30 times and finally gave up after having to hear Napolean's speech each time I fell! The historical information was very condensed and didn't really bring much to the game, and the blue circles that you came across wherever you were supposed to do something either made it too easy, or left you scratching your head. I really wished this was more fun!

I had just received this game and was pleasently surprised by how good this game is. The controls are very easy to use walk with nunchuck and perform actions with the A button. The replica of both the museum of natural history in nyc and the smithsonian in washington are like really being there. there are maps built into the game after you find them so you can not get stuck. this is one movie that translated well into a game. It is cool to have ben stiller as the voice of larry just like the movie. this is a definite buy if you enjoy the movie.
