  • Excerpt: Shortly after Nintendo unveiled the N64 analog controller to the world, Sega followed suit quickly thereafter by pairing an analog controller of their own with NiGHTS. Then Sony saw that bet, added two anolog sticks to their controller, made them both have internal buttons (Officially labeled "L3" and "R3"), and offered rumble capabilities. This controller would eventually be known as the "Dual Shock".

Ape Escape

Playstation Illustrated

  • Excerpt: The graphics in Ape Escape are truly beautiful. They have an almost anime feel to them, but more of the ‘cutesy’ type. There was a whole lot of thought put into the characters; every ‘ape’ in the game has a bio you can see once you’ve caught them, with a snapshot and short note about them. The sound effects and voice acting are really good. The background music is nice and up-tempo, but is repetitive. Altogether, Ape Escape is a nicely polished game.

  • Excerpt: When Sony revealed their new platformer entitled Ape Escape, everybody thought it was a Donkey Kong killer. After Sony explained the plot, which was to catch crazy monkeys, the title DK killer disappeared. Ape Escape in my opinion is one of the most original title in it's genre on any console. Standing up there with such titles as Parrapa the Rapper, and Bust a Groove.

  • Excerpt: In the very first attempt for an analog controller only game, Ape Escape rises. You heard right, you must have an analog controller to play this game. At first the control may seem awkward and a little tough but it grows on you.
