Hail to the Chimp

Playstation Illustrated
4 April 2009
  • Excerpt: Hail to the Chimp is a very entertaining title, with more than you might expect. Sure, at its heart, it is a presidential election-themed party game comprised of several different flavors of mini-games with cel-shaded graphics that give it a very animated and cartoon-y appearance, but Wideload went to great lengths to breathe life and a heavy dose of tongue-in-cheek comedy into this game.

Hail to the Chimp (PS3)

The Review Busters

  • Conclusion: Is there a reason to play a game like this? No, there is no reason to play Hail to the Chimp. Gamecock has dropped the ball with their latest game. It makes no sense to me and not only that there are hardly any mini games in this party game. Pass on this game, either wait for somebody to toss it in the trash or rent it for a weekend.

  • Summary: Hail to the Chimp proves that personality can't make up for bad gameplay.
  • Pros: Very funny political satire; great voice acting; team attacks are interesting.
  • Cons: Gameplay is too simplistic; frustrating level design; repetitive gameplay; difficulty level is beyond unfair; some characters are way better than others.

Hail To The Chimp

  • Conclusion: While great in concept, Hail to the Chimp proves that it takes a little more than a high concept for a video game to become great. If Wideload Games was to ever create a sequel, I'd hope they could retain their humor but add in a lot of gameplay aspects that were sorely needed in Hail to the Chimp to be a quality game.

Expert Review

PSX Extreme
28 July 2008
  • Excerpt: The presidential election is right around the corner, so perhaps it makes perfect sense to have a zany spoof video game designed to entice multiple players in the never-ending quest to secure “clams” for ultimate victory.
