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

Searly, MobyGames

  • 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. 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...

Feels like the original

  • 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...

One of the most memorable games in PS is back!

  • Summary: Wow! There are just not enough words to describe how cool and fun this game was back in the PS. Most mature gamers will probably come to this game and say things like "This is too childish for me" or "Too many monkeys in one game".

Isn't the review section for people who've played the game?

  • Summary: This game definitely lives up to the first game. I stumbled across the first ape escape and played it obsessively for hours. The graphic are very good in this version. The weapons are similiar to the previous game (there may be one or two new ones--I can't remember).

  • Summary: Basically everyone has the same opinion, Ape Escape was an amazingly original playstation game. They tried to repeat the magic in Ape Escape two and came off as not much of a sequel but as the same game retooled.

Great game but i have a few gripes

Amazon
29 September 2003
  • Summary: Ape Escape 1 was one of my favorite games. It was fresh and original and far more innovative than any other platformer then and now. But after having played a good deal of Ape Escape 2, I've noticed a few things. The first, obviously being the main character switcheroo to "Jimmy".

Great Game

Amazon
29 September 2003
  • Summary: Ape Escape 2 is fun and wacky. I can't imagine how big of imaginations the makers had. There are a few bad parts to it witch are: 1. It switches from being so easy it wasn't even funny, to so hard it wasn't even funny. 2. The views of Jimmy are terrible. I want to know which way I am going. 3.
