  • Summary: 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

Review: Ape Escape (Move)

TheSixthAxis
29 December 2011
  • Excerpt: The original Ape Escape game on the PlayStation heralded a new control system – the dual analogue stick.
  • Pros: If you haven’t used Move in a while it gives you a chance to charge it., Bright, might entertain the youngest members of the family.
  • Cons: Unimaginative gameplay and little variation in the level design., Nothing new or different and it doesn’t excel at the old, tired things it does., Almost completely bereft of the charm and character in its namesake.

Ape Escape Review (PS3)

  • Excerpt: You’d be bannanas to even give this a glance Is it a remake? Is it a sequel?! No, it’s a spin-off featuring the Playstation Move…damn. Arguably my favourite platformer of the PS1 era, Ape Escape was a fun and frenzied catch-‘em-up revolving around the prospect of lunatic monkeys lost in time.
  • Pros: Brilliantly colourful graphics, Makes a change from other on-rails shooters
  • Cons: Gameplay grates all the more the longer you play, Dismal mini-games, Controller feels overloaded with commands

  • Summary: Ape Escape se prostě a jednoduše pro Playstation Move nepovedl. Nabízí totiž jen velmi krátkou zkušenost, kterou dohrajete za nějaké dvě hodiny. Navíc hratelnost je neustále stejná a záhy se dostaví nuda.

  • Conclusion: Es ist so schade, diese Serie schrie schon seit Anfang an nach einem Move Controller. Die Entwickler haben dies zwar erkannt, waren aber zu ängstlich etwas Tolles daraus zu machen.

  • Conclusion: I Sonys jungel av Playstation-ekslusiver kommer man ikke foruten Ape Escape -spillene; spillene som kombinerte alien-invasjon, tidsreiser og apekatter, og som ikke minst satte analog-stikkene på Playstation-kontrolleren.
  • Pros: God presentasjon, Move-kontrolleren er like presis som alltid.
  • Cons: Utrolig ensformige og kjedelige spillmekanikker, dårlig utnyttelse av potensiale på de fleste plan, lite innhold, uinspirert.
