PlayStation Move Ape Escape Review

GameSpot
19 August 2011
  • Excerpt: There are at least two things wrong with Move Ape Escape's title. First, as fans of taxonomy no doubt realize, the simian antagonists of this Move-required capture-a-thon appear to be monkeys, not apes. More troubling, these furry funsters have little interest in escaping from your grabby wrath.
  • Pros: Monkeys behave in silly ways and have funny backstories
  • Cons: Second half of the game is excessively difficult, Problematic shooting controls, Net doesn't always capture monkeys, even when it makes contact, No way to adjust the difficulty

Ape Escape

  • Excerpt: Ape Escape was one of the first dual stick games way back in the days of the PSOne and its simplistic and addictive gameplay has been a welcome addition to console gaming ever since. After Sony decided not to release the last PS2 title Million Monkeys over here it seemed that the simian psycho’s had been retired to mini games on the PSP; but all is not lost and SONY JAPAN have set those pesky primates loose on the PS3.

Ape Escape (PS3)

EL33TONLINE
15 July 2011
  • Excerpt: Ape Escape is a great example of a budget-priced game that doesn’t skimp on features just because it’s inexpensive. There’s plenty of fun, unique PlayStation Move-controlled action to be had in Ape Escape, and the game offers up a fair challenge along with plenty of replay value.

Ape Escape PS3 Review

Console Obsession
6 July 2011
  • Excerpt: The original Ape Escape was the first PlayStation 1 game to be specifically created with the DualShock in mind, and it really displayed the advantage that dual analogue sticks had over a simple D-pad. After a long hiatus the series is back and this time around supports Move, so from a control standpoint, it’s easy to expect something special, given the history of the series.

Ape Escape PS3

  • Excerpt: The PlayStation Move is an interesting control system, however just like the Nintendo Wii, there are far too many older titles that are being updated with this new control system. Although some of these games work, they don't offer the world of games anything new and from a gaming viewpoint, developers should be trying something different as opposed to porting older games to the PlayStation Move system and then tweaking the gameplay.

Expert Review

Contactmusic
24 July 2011
  • Excerpt: The Ape Escape franchise has been somewhat absent of late. Like Sony's other successful platformers of yesteryear, it has been demoted to spinoffs and remakes on the PSP for the past half decade. However the advent of the Playstation Move has provided the perfect output for family-friendly games like this: the first instalment in the Ape Escape franchise on a home console for over six years.
