A lot of fun, and what's wrong with that?

  • Conclusion: This game can be recommended as the PS2's finest average platformer. Practically a genre in itself, the average platformer offers pretty visuals, minigames, a fair lifespan and a complete lack of proper innovation. And Ape Escape 2 does this flawlessly. Now, this doesn't have to be a bad thing.
  • Pros: This game was one of the PS2's greatest platformers when released. Although it's now a little dated, it retains it's unique charm and, more importantly, sense of sheer fun, years after it lit up my life. So what makes this game so likable? First, the control system. You run around with the left s...
  • Cons: First of all, the boss battles are too easy.

  • Conclusion: If you liked the original, you should rent this. If not, there's not much point in getting it.
  • Pros: The humor. You'll see puns in the monkey names from the beginning. There are 300 something monkeys, so you will have plenty to do.

Some of the powerups were useless. the kind, you u...

  • Summary: After looking at some internet pics and you tube footage from the game I was unconvinced that this game would live up to the original which I played to death. I've only played a little so far but I'm pleasantly surprised so far, I'd say if you liked th4e first one and want more of the same then it's...
