Nintendo DSThe Review Busters (Sep, 2008)
Even though the sound isn’t quite up to par I have to say that this is a perfect purchase for anyone that owns a Nintendo DS. For only $20 you will get about as much gameplay as a normal over priced DS game. Online play is fun and playing with your friends wirelesses is more enjoyable that certain modern games. If you own a Nintendo DS then buy this game right now.

Don't expect a graphic tour de force or a storyline that has more twists and turns than a twisty-turny thing; N+ strips away such superfluous elements and delivers an essential experience that harks back to the days of 16-bit 'reaction' gaming - it's challenging, invigorating and often frustrating, but once you've had a taste you'll almost certainly come back for more, despite the disarmingly minimal presentation.

Look, folks. If you have any interest in challenging platformer gameplay, you need to play this. Period. This game makes all of the other titles in the genre look like a joke. Many of these levels are specifically designed to test what platforming is all about: timing and skill. Pure and simple. Bottomless pits and bouncy walls aside, the sheer amount of brutal hazards and the ridiculously high learning curve are not for the faint of heart. If you get N+, be ready to fail at what you might consider yourself good. Be sure to take advantage of the multiplayer gameplay; both local and Wi-Fi options ensures that you won’t have to suffer through the ordeals alone. The real key to this game’s success, however, comes with its surprisingly deep Level Editor. In the hands of the right gamer, N+ could be one of the best titles in the DS’s library. Needless to say, ninja training has never been so fun.

This is an extremely polished game that fits the DS like a glove. It's got style, grace, and attitude, and it feels good to play. The physics are great, and almost every level is fiendishly clever. It's also one of the rare titles that are presented better on a handheld than on a console. No question, N+ is one of the best DS games of the year.

Overall, N+ is a must-buy for both those who love the N series of games and those who have not yet had the opportunity to check it out. The second screen really adds a great new dynamic to the gameplay, and the classic feel of the game is as sharp as ever. I really can't recommend this title enough; it is very fun to play, and the online modes provide endless replay value. And, when you factor in that the DS is budget priced at only $20, there really is no reason for you not to run out and grab this title. Unless you hate ninjas…you don't hate ninjas, do you?

Nintendo DSWorth Playing (Sep 26, 2008)
Overall, N+ is exactly the kind of game that's tailor-made for the DS, and I don't mean that it uses the touch-screen. Quick and simple, this is the kind of distraction that can easily be picked up for five minutes and put right back down again, making it ideal for killing those last few minutes of a lunch break. Sure, some might be put off by its lack of superficial gloss, and there will be people for whom the difficulty level is a turn-off, but aside from those two gripes, N+ is a stellar port that's worth a look. Now, excuse me, level 22 is calling ….

Nintendo DSGame Informer Magazine (Sep, 2008)
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.

Nintendo DSGamer 2.0 (Aug 20, 2008)
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're bound to 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.

If you’ve never played N or N+, then it’s suggested you pick up N+ on the DS as soon as possible. You definitely won’t regret the purchase of this stellar platforming puzzle title.

PSPGameZone (Aug 25, 2008)
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.

PSPGamersMark (Sep 13, 2008)
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.

PSPDefunct Games (Aug 26, 2008)
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!

Nintendo DSUGO (UnderGroundOnline) (Aug, 2008)
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.

Nintendo DSGame Shark (Sep 22, 2008)
Thankfully the rest of the game is not. While it does get difficult and can get frustrating to some extent N+ is a great example of solid platforming mechanics with shades of a puzzle game built into them. Every level has a solution now matter how crazy it looks at first, and it is up to the player to flex their ninja prowess to make it happen. Its multiplayer is disappointing, but the single player experience which is the real meat of the game is as solid as it ever has been and marks a great entry for the franchise onto the DS.

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.

PSPCheat Code Central (Sep, 2008)
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…

PSPGameFocus (Sep 01, 2008)
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.

Nintendo DSGameSpy (Aug 26, 2008)
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.

Nintendo DSGameSpot (Aug 26, 2008)
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.

Nintendo DSModojo (Aug 15, 2008)
There's simply no excuse to not buy N+. It's frustrating and the music isn't everything it could be, but the rest; the graphics, the gameplay, the hundreds of levels and co-op/level creation tools; are stupendous. It tests your dexterity, wits, and skills, and you don't even have to buy rubber ninja stars.

Nintendo DSGamesRadar (Aug 26, 2008)
Multiplayer co-op and competitive matches are just as much fun as they were on XBLA with modes such as racing and tag to take part in. Still, the bread and butter of n+ is the single-player ninja action and while the game can be quite a frustrating slog, it never truly feels crushing.
80
PSPGamesRadar (Aug 27, 2008)
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.

PSPGameDaily (Aug 25, 2008)
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.)

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.

PSPGamernode (Aug 29, 2008)
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.

PSPGamers' Temple, The (Sep, 2008)
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.

PSP4Players.de (May 14, 2009)
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.

PSPIGN (Aug 27, 2008)
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.

Nintendo DS1UP (Aug 26, 2008)
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.

Nintendo DSDestructoid (Aug 26, 2008)
Overall, N+ on the Nintendo DS is a fun, polished game for what it is ... a collection of obstacle courses. But it’s a polished and tight experience, to be sure, although I do feel that the game could benefit from having a tighter overall goal structure versus an open series of mini-challenges. Still, for those looking for challenging, bite-sized gameplay, N+ contains some of the best you’ll get on the DS.

So—if you're a die-hard platform fan who thinks nothing of dying 65 times trying to jump a gap, then N+ is your dream game, available now on DS, PSP and Xbox Live. If game-induced hypertension is not your idea of fun, then N+ may not be for you. But if it is, the $20 price tag will also be a... plus.

Nintendo DSGamePro (US) (Sep 04, 2008)
Personally I'd say the real draw to go beyond the browser game is if you really want to create your own N levels, which personally, I don't. While N+ is a polished game, I am fine leaving N as a nice Internet distraction, even if the controls aren't quite as tight as when you play these handheld versions. Don't forget, too, that N+ is already an XBLA game for just 800 Microsoft points, a cheaper option unless you really want to draw your custom levels with a DS stylus.

PSPWorth Playing (Sep 06, 2008)
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.
