Long Lasting

  • Summary: I have had Ape Escape 2 for 7 years now and it is honestly the best game I have ever played. It takes a good long time to beat it but it is just so much fun. For this time period, the graphics are unbeatable. Every boss you get to is so fun to beat, and they all look very cool.

Still play it after years of ownership

  • Summary: I have had this game for years and I still find it to be fun to play. The levels are pretty big, the monkeys can be tricky to catch, and the boss battles are interesting and fun. I would defiantly recommend this.

  • Summary: I used to play ape escape 1 when I was about 6 , and I remember that I loved it! Last Saturday, I went to game stop and bought ape escape 2, I'm completely in love with it! It's so funny and addictive, it's not just a kid's game (even though my little 4 year old brother loves it too) , it's for the whole family .

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. If you pick up the game knowing that it'll entertain you but will never surprise you, you'll have a lot of fun. But otherwise, prepare to be disappointed.
  • 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 stick, with jumping on R1. So far, so humdrum, but the fun comes with the right stick, which uses the gadget you're holding. First of all, the system is easy to use. Gadgets ca...
  • Cons: First of all, the boss battles are too easy. Although, they have a nice, retro feel about them with predictable patterns and big glowing weak spots, this system becomes overfamiliar, with the final boss in particular a real letdown, especially considering how good bosses are in games like Ratchet and Clank. Also, the new gadgets are a real letdown. All the innovation behind the controls of the new gizmos - to use the magnet or the water sprayer, just point the right s...

Not as good as the original, but worth a look.

James Kirk, MobyGames

  • 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. Old powerups from the original plus some new ones add a nice game experience. The graphics are much better than the original and the controls are intuitive. finally, catching monkeys in a net is just plain fun.
  • Cons: The game was bleeping easy. I caught every single monkey in less than 30 hr. of game time, so older gamers may feel cheated.(like i did) The bosses were WWAAAYYYY too easy.(If Specter's helmet makes him so smart, why did I beat him so easily??!!) Some of the powerups were useless. the kind, you use it once in one level and you never use it again. The "secret" gadget was the same as the original, so I was disappointed.*SNIFF* In the game, you can gather coins you can u...
