Excerpt: PlayStation Move Ape Escape is a particular love-it-or-hate-it game based on the series alone. If you’re a longtime Ape Escape fan, a fan of arcade-style games where improving your own score is the name of the game, or just looking a new take on rail shooters, it may be worth a shot.
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.
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.
Summary: With its casual style, energetic feel and chaotic adventures, younger gamers will probably take to Ape Escape with greater appetite. But it is a pity that the option for two-player co-op is not featured in the game’s story mode.
