  • Excerpt: So I got my copy of this game named “Ape Escape 2”. Erm, I wasn’t really excited by hearing the name, in fact I have to admit I had never heard of the original Ape Escape. So after some background searching, I found out the game was quite a success.

Ape Escape 2

Into Liquid Sky

  • Excerpt: The original Ape Escape managed to make full use of the Dual Shock controller for the Playstation by making players use both analog sticks to control the action. Even with this innovative element, the original game ended up a sleeper hit in the platformer genre.
  • Pros: Fun gadgets and gameplay, Monkeys are pretty funny, Familiar voice cast
  • Cons: Graphics could be better, Too easy, Some pretty lame prizes to be earned

  • Excerpt: It's been some time since the last Ape Escape was released (with the intention of making full use of the Dual Shock controller)...unless you lived in Japan, where a semi-sequel dedicated to simian nudity was released between then and now (oh those crazy Japanese).
