Good

Just shy of a Bad Movie to Game Adaption

Nowadays we are seeing alot of movies turned to games, more repetitive than it needs to be. But don't get discouraged! Ingame graphics remind me of the 90's Ghostbusters cartoons, sortta PS2 retro, Ingame voice is funny to listen to and never gets old. Unfortunately its easy to walk off an edge, causing you to climb all the way back up where you was before. The puzzles and gameplay is easy and hint menus on what to do is a constant pop-up. Achievements are easy to get, and if you miss anything you can always replay a level at the start screen. This game is a great addition for kids, achievement seekers and fans of the Night at the Museum movie series.

Not Bad...Worth A Rental

In all honesty, this game isnt bad it all. I enjoyed it quite a bit. Although its a very shot game, (took me a little over 2 hours) its pretty fun. It may be a bit child-ish, but its worth a rental in my opinion.

Gameplay is easy to learn, graphics are decent, and so is the sound. Achievement wise, there are 37 of them. Very easy game if your looking for a quick 1000. A majority of these are story related, so you cant miss them. And those that are'nt story related deal with collectables. The collectables are very easy to find. Most are in plain sight or behind boxes/shelves. Theyre not out to trick you in this game. If it so happens that you end up missing one, you can always replay a level and obtain the collectables you missed before. Overall, I didnt face a single problem within the game. No glitches, no errors, nothing of the sort. Believe it or not, Ben Stiller actually voices himself in the game! The cutscenes and dialogue actually proove to be pretty funny. All the more reason I feel this game relates more towards the movie.

I feel the game deserves a 6/10. The only downfall of the game is perhaps the length of the game. Its extremely short and can be completed in hours. If you have absolutely no other game to play, definetly check Night at the Museam out! Its worth the rental.

First off, I played this game knowing its made for kids between the ages of 2-8. But honestly as easy (and it is the easiest game ever) and fast as this game was, it wasn't very bad of a game. I personally beat the game and got 1000g in under 3 hours. but for the actually gaming it was fun. I don't see this being a game you would ever want to buy. but for a rental for kids 100%.. and if your an achievement hog (like myself) this game is as easy as can be, and I promise at no point during the SHORT SHORT game will you be bored.

The Graphics were nice, the controls are easy and the story rolls very fast.. Downside-- Final Boss is a Pain in the Butt.. a decent amount of Glitchy aspects in the final boss scene, but other then that.. no major issues.. (to beat the final boss, always have full health)
