Game Informer Magazine
Even though multiplayer is offline, thankfully, the entire game doesn’t suffer the same fate. Unlike the home console version, players can upload, download, and rate created levels from a central server. Even if you don’t care about crafting your own stages, the virtually limitless stream of everyone else’s content will keep replay value high long after you’ve beaten all of the on‑disc levels.

Gamer 2.0
The game’s boxart or title may not be enough to captivate the casual gamer, but N+ is new wave old-school gaming at its best. The gameplay is simple and easy to master, but it is also challenging enough to keep gamers pounding themselves in disgust because of whatever mistake they make in the game's 200+ levels.. If you’re looking for a platformer with quick and responsive gameplay, N+ is the game you’re looking for. Just be aware that while the PSP version has the superior presentation, it also suffers from horribly slow load times.

Without a doubt one of the most addictive platform/puzzle games on the PSP, N+ is one of those games that will complete consume you in the best way possible. What looks like a rather basic game is really a challenging and involving game with a lot to offer.

N+ does a great job providing a modern system with a classic style game. Its focus is sharp and challenge smooth and relentless at the same time. It’s also nice that the game only costs a Jackson. Interested people can check out the game at The Way of the Ninja for free and see if the game is up their alley.

Gaming Nexus
It may not be the best looking game on the PSP, but N+ proves that it can more than hang with the big boys. Atari's newest action game features hundreds of levels, downloadable content, compelling multiplayer levels, a level creator and much, much more ... and it's only $20. It's not perfect, but for that price you can't afford to pass up this retro platformer!

UGO (UnderGroundOnline)
Even with its control differences, N+ on the DS and PSP is well worth your time, especially if you're a fan of the series or love hardcore platforming games. The game will also only run you 20 bucks, which is a steal for a game that has so much content packed in there.

Game Shark
Idiotic menu issues aside, N+ still provides a great value and tons of fun for anyone who picks it up. With over 40 different levels and a near-endless supply of downloadable user-generated content, it's hard to not see the value in such a simple and fun game.

Cheat Code Central
N+ is a great game to take on-the-go. Unfortunately, if you're not very good at platforming, you may suffer greatly. The game will make you sweat, curse, and yell. If you're actually fairly skilled, you may curse a little less. Whatever the case may be, I bet you'll keep playing this game for a long time and even come back to it after forgetting about it. You should give it a go and see how it pans out for you. $19.99 is not that bad for a fun game like this…

GameFocus
There are 200 levels and you can build your own levels if you get bored with all of that. For $20. Need I say more? Another note, this game is great for the handheld market. The levels are short enough that you can knock off a few levels waiting in line at the bank or whatnot. You can feel accomplishment if you only have 5 minutes to play.

Destinés aux amateurs de challenges corsés capables de plier n'importe quel oldies en quelques minutes, N+ pousse la plate-forme dans ses derniers retranchements. Partant d'un concept simple mais ultra exigeant dans son gameplay, le titre nous fait réapprendre la persévérance et fascine plus qu'il ne rebute. Une expérience à ne pas manquer, en solo comme en multijoueur.

Games Radar
The drawbacks are minimal, including some uneven difficulty and graphics that look as if they were ported directly from the DS. Had to be said - but the N+ experience is preserved and pleasant as always. Plus, you’ve got 2-player infrastructure and ad-hoc multiplayer, a level editor to customize your own sequel (N++?) and tons of unlockables to discover. Even if you’ve played N+ over Xbox Live, or the free PC version, $20 is a small price to pay to brandish this bundle of gaming bliss in the palm of your hands anywhere you damn well please.

GameDaily
Some levels are harder than others, and the presentation never rises above what the freeware game offered back on the PC. With those slight issues in mind, N+ still ranks as one of the better PSP games available. For $20, you can't go wrong with slick gameplay and sharp-thinking design. The best part? You don't have to dress like a ninja to play it. (Though we wouldn't blame you if you did.)

GameSpot
If you have already downloaded the free version on the PC or the port to the Xbox 360, the gameplay in portable versions are only made more compelling and rewarding. At $19.99, N+ is more expensive than previous releases, but new puzzles and a renewed commitment to collaboration mean the opportunities available via the online community are endless. Regardless of your jumping skill, platforming history, or dodging prowess, N+ will be sure to keep you on your toes no matter where you are playing.

GameSpy
It may not be an easy game, but N+ is certainly addictive, and its design makes it a fantastic portable game. In addition to the single-player challenge, the community aspect supplied by the level editor means that the dedicated player will be flipping out ninja-style for a long, long time.

N+ is wicked fun and a steal at $19.99. Figuring out how to solve each puzzle, creating your own and sharing them with others makes this an essential addition to your PSP library. Buy it, and be kind to your ninja.

N+ is a blast, and is perfect for the PSP. It's easy to jump into a game, complete a few levels, and then jump out in a matter of minutes. At higher difficulty levels, a well-trained hand is required to achieve one's goals and extract the maximum appreciation for the title. Being able to create and share custom levels is a huge plus, but I question whether this game is worthy of a higher price tag ($19.99) than all existing versions (curse the cost of physical media). Either way, N+ retains a solid core of refined gameplay that all gamers should enjoy.

Gamers' Temple, The
N+ is a great game for a portable system like the PSP. You can play a few levels here and there, put it down for a while, and then instantly jump back into the game. Some of the levels can be pretty challenging, though, so if you're easily frustrated or looking for a puzzle game that doesn't require quick reflexes in addition to quick thinking N+ may not appeal to you. There were times when I found my patience stretched thin by some of the levels and I didn't find N+ to be the kind of game I could play for hours on end, but it was fun short play sessions and I'd definitely take it along on short trips or while commuting.

N+ hat mir vor gut einem Jahr auf der 360 frustrierend viel Spaß bereitet, und auch heute komme ich nur schwer von dem PSP-Strichmännchen los. Das intelligente, wunderbar diabolische Spielprinzip ist nach wie vor unverändert, die Steuerung präzise wie eine Chirurgenhand, das Leveldesign eine Mischung eine stetig gemeiner werdende Ansammlung aus pixelperfektem Anspruch. Zwei Dinge sind es jedoch, die das mobile Gehüpfe im Vergleich zur XBLA-Fassung schlechter dastehen lassen: Zum einen fiel der spaßige Online-Modus komplett unter den Tisch, via Infrastructure können lediglich Levels rauf- und runtergeladen werden. Zum anderen ist die Musik nach den fantastischen Chipklängen der Arcade-Fassung eine bittere Enttäuschung - die billigen Breakbeats und schlaffen 4/4-Stampfer laden schon nach kurzer Zeit zum Abschalten ein. Davon abgesehen ist N+ auch auf PSP ein gelungenes, herausforderndes und wunderbar anderes Jump-n-Run der abstrakten Sorte.

IGN
Despite my problems with the game, N+ is still an enjoyable PSP title with a ton of levels and a healthy number of options. The real beauty of the game comes from its pick-up-and-play nature (X is jump -- that's all you need to know) mixed with its price: $19.99. Hundreds of levels for about twenty bucks sounds like a fine deal to me, so I recommend N+ to PSP owners looking for some basic platforming action. Even though I didn't like it as much as other gamers out there, the abundance of content and highly diverse level design make N+ an appetizing offer for anyone looking for gold. After all, this is a good game for on-the-go play sessions.

As an enjoyable, pick-up-and-play package with a sublimely simple design, N+ succeeds, and it's hard not to recommend for the price. Just be wary of the inevitable eyestrain, and if you're only going to play it at home, make sure you've exhausted the XBLA and PC versions first. It's still the most badass ninja simulator around...just less so.

Worth Playing
Despite some of these nitpicks, N+ for the PSP is still as great a game as it ever was on XBLA or the Internet. While the formula is getting a bit passé, the physics and levels are still as sharp and tightly constructed as ever, even if the sound is repetitive and the multiplayer modes are inaccessible to most. N+ is a good game, but it's not exactly cost-effective if you're going to play against a friend.
