Digital Spy writes: "The path developers tread when creating movie tie-in video games is rarely an easy one. While impressive, the successful conversions are vastly outnumbered by the failures; of which there have been some absolute stinkers. Therefore, the odds were fairly stacked against Night At The Museum 2, which is based on the big budget sequel Night At The Museum: Battle Of The Smithsonian starring Ben Stiller. Unfortunately, the game does little to provide a classic gaming experience. Despite recreating the 'museum coming alive' feel fairly well and also offering some decent puzzles for a younger audience, its flimsy nature and quite insultingly short length make this one museum to avoid."
