Don't come to Jackass: The Game for the PSP expecting epic, nigh-artwork quality work. This isn't a Kojima Productions work; this is a video game that tries — and admirably succeeds — at being, well, "Jackass," low entertainment at its lowest. Forty mini-games are not going to last too long, but the difficult challenges, consistent design and hilariously sick scenarios make it last just long enough to be worth borrowing from your friend for a couple of weeks if you like the "Jackass" style of humor, or renting from your local games shop. This isn't going to attract new fans, but it is going to be eaten up by existing fans, and it's exactly the sort of game that feels just right on the PSP, best enjoyed in short bursts when you have 10 minutes to kill.
Jackass: The Game can be fun for a bit, but mostly because the content of the stunts is funny. Actually playing them isn't as exciting as simply seeing what happens next, which is unfortunate. If you're into unlockable items then there will be a lot for you here, but if not, you'll find that the whole thing is over rather quickly. It can be a reasonable time waster, but that's about it.
Jackass: The Game is the definition of mediocrity, but when you don’t expect much this makes the title really impress you in some areas. The visuals, the audio, and much of the gameplay will actually keep a Jackass fan occupied and impressed. Now for how long that fan will stay occupied and impressed is completely variable. Personally this was entertaining for about one night (or two to three hours of play). This makes Jackass a perfect rental, especially if you’re going for the PS2 version. The PSP version includes the director mode and the extra multiplayer and looks, sounds, and feels much the same as the PS2 version making it a better choice if you’re looking to purchase it. In other words it’s not a terrible game, it’s just not a very good value. Either way you spin it, the game reeks with the awesome essence of Jackass.
Jackass was the ultimate example of "don't try this at home" television, making it fertile ground for a video game adaptation. Even though it's missing the schadenfreude element that permeated the show, Jackass: The Game has the right attitude, and it still manages to elicit the occasional chuckle with its sophomoric hijinks.

Jackass isn't a finely tuned or sophisticated form of entertainment; it's the kind of stupid enjoyment college freshman have when they're drunk and while you don't need to be drunk to have fun with this game - it might help.
Ce multi-épreuves déjanté s'adresse à un public ciblé, friand des crétineries et autres pitreries télévisuelles prodiguées par la team de Jackass. D'un strict point de vue ludique, cette adaptation de la célèbre émission US n'est pas vraiment des plus réjouissantes. Certes, les épreuves sont originales et tout aussi décalées que les cascades de l'émission mais ce qui ressort le plus vient de la maniabilité imprécise et de la faible durée de vie du soft. Si vous parvenez à dénicher trois neuneus supplémentaires pour une partie entre potes, pourquoi pas, mais dans le cas contraire, autant acheter les deux films sortis à ce jour.
Jackass: The Game isn't completely devoid of fun, though. The voice-over work by the Jackass crew is nice, and as awful as most of the games are, you still can't help laughing every once in a while. But ultimately, the game is just a flat and uninteresting take on the otherwise awesome Jackass franchise.
