  • 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). Why SCEA decided to pass up the sequel to one of its PSOne Greatest Hits titles is beyond anyone. But you have to thank Ubi-Soft for giving the game a second chance.

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. Subsequently, a semi-sequel was released in Japan in 2001 and Sony developed a true sequel in 2002.
  • 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

  • Conclusion: THE VERDICT: A great platformer peppered with wacky boss encounters, engaging scenarios and solid gameplay. It can get tiresome, but the same can be said of many titles in this day and age.

Ape Escape 2

  • Conclusion: On the downside (and there isn't much of a downside with this game) AE2 certainly could have been bigger or more difficult, but again it matches up well to the likes of Jak & Daxter, Ratchet & Clank or Sly Raccoon. Unlockable 1 or 2 player mini games certainly add to the lifespan; Dance Monkey Dance is a sort of rhythm action game; Monkey Climber is a thumb and finger twisting climbing and collecting game; and the brilliant Monkey Football could teach some of the more...
  • Pros: Monkeys are great., Monkey chasing is great., The gadgets are great., Monkey football is brilliant.
  • Cons: The control system is tricky at first., Visually rather unexciting and linear levels by today's standards., It's VERY Japanese in places.
