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 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.
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. 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.
