  • Excerpt: When you start playing this game, and I urge you to right now (you can get it for 9.99!) you’ll see all the pretty colours and monkeys and think, “Ahh, how cute. All the little monkey’s prancing round with pretty little trousers on.” Or something equally as scary. But upon further playing you’ll see this ain’t a game for kids. And when you’re trying desperately to sneak up upon a monkey for the billionth time you’re just about to swipe at it, and it sees you.
  • Pros: Monkeys .  Great controls .
  • Cons: Shitty camera .

Childish Fantasy

  • Excerpt: The game is very good for its time in terms of grpahics and origionality but it does lack a lot behind most other games from recent times. The game basically involves collecting these monkeys that their leader has set free in time, you get plenty of whackey inventions to do this. The inventions and general look of the graphics are childish and very boring for anyone over the age of 12.
  • Pros: Good Graphics
  • Cons: Very Childish

  • Excerpt: Ever wondered what those new sticks are on the Playstation Controller are for? Well meet Ape Escape. A 3D-platform game of the highest quality, and all will be revealed. The idea of Ape Escape is to rescue A LOT of monkeys on 25 MASSIVE Levels. I stress - massive, it really is big. A Huge fun 3D worlds set in various times in Arctic conditions(yes lots of ice to slip on), jungles, beaches, you name it - its there.
  • Pros: It'll make you laugh
  • Cons: Need a Dual Shock Controller

A really good game

  • Excerpt: Ape Escape is, without doubt, the most graphically advanced platform available to purchase on the Playstation. It is also a lot of fun to play. Although the ideas are basically the same on each level (ie. catch the monkey) the game is very clever in that it introduces new ways to catch the monkeys, on average, one new way per level. This makes the game extremely interesting. Another aid that it has are the bonus games.
  • Pros: 3D, good graphics, original
  • Cons: Easy, can get repetitive

Monkeys frighten me

  • Excerpt: This game is the best platformer since Mario64. The controls are slightly hard to master but when you do it's very intuitive, and chasing down cute monkeys is just fun. hehe. In this amusing platformer it is your job to travel through time capturing delinquent monkeys who have escaped from a themepark, and are attempting to change the past.
  • Pros: Funny, cute, great gameplay
  • Cons: odd controls that take a few minutes to master

  • Summary: Este juego fue uno de los primeros que jugue en mi playstation, y de cual recuerdo unas buenas tardes de diversion. El juego consiste en atrapar un nuemro de monos determinados en cada fase, un planteamiento orginal y parece simple; pero claro a medida que vamso avanzando los nivieles son mas grandes, hay que atrapar un mayor numero de monos y tambien estos estan mas escondidos.
  • Pros: Original y divertido
  • Cons: Sistema de control

La invasión de los monos

marco_gandara, Ciao
5 January 2002
  • Summary: Estamos ante uno de los plataformas más divertidos, más largos y complejos del momento. Su principal virtud reside en su originalísimo planteamiento y en su innovador control basado en el uso del Dual SOC. Además de ser un juego bonito y divertido, Ape Escape es un reto para la habilidad y la astucia. Un reto difícil de superar.
  • Pros: Divertido
  • Cons: Ninguna

molto carino con una alta giocabilità

16 January 2001
  • Excerpt: Ape scape sipuò definire in teoria come uno dei tanti gioche x la play station. Ma ciò che lo contraddistingue da giochi simili a questo è l'alta giocabilità e la geniale idea di far utilizzare obbligatoriamente entrambe i joy pad. Infatti mentre il pomello di sinistra, viene utilizzato x far muovere il protagonista, quelo di destra viene utilizzato x dare vita alle armi o agli oggetti che vengono selezionati. Lo scopo del gioco, cosa che ho omesso ...
  • Pros: alta giocabilità, almeno 24 ore di gioco assicurate
  • Cons: il doveri ricominciare tutto da capo x finire il gioco

  • Excerpt: Ape Escape non e' un platform dell'ultima generazione, ma resta sempre secondo me uno dei titoli piu' originali. Il vostro obiettivo sara' catturare scimmie, e per farlo avrete bisogno della vostra abilita' ma anche di un joypad dual shock (senza cui il gioco non funziona). Il livello di difficolta' e' ben bilanciato e andando avanti oltre che ad aumentare la difficolta' aumenteranno le sorprese (unica nota negativa la difficolta' di certi livelli ...
  • Pros: bel platform
  • Cons: ci vuole il dual s .

  • Summary: Los juegos de plataformas en 3D, hace tiempo que hicieron su aparición, pero solo recientemente se han hecho mayores. Como cualquier juego en un género popular, estos han sido clonados decenas de veces. Ape Escape es bueno precisamente por su innovación y su sólido diseño, que devuelve a los plataformeros donde se merecen.
