Ape Escape Academy

Defunct Games
2 March 2006
  • Summary: If you can get over the game's sluggish controls and short story mode you will still be left with a game that is no fun to play. With uninspired mini games that with either bore you or frustrate you, Ape Escape Academy is one school you might not want to apply to. This product was submitted by the publisher for review. As a rule, Defunct Games does not review games we spent money on. However, that does not always apply to classic/retro games.

Expert Review

PSX Extreme
31 January 2006
  • Excerpt: There's a story to AE: Academy, but it's pretty horrific, so I'll spare you the details. There are over 40 mini-games covering three categories: mind, body, and technique. In the single-player mode you're presented with a tic-tac-toe grid with a game mapped to each square. A game gets picked at random, and if you pass, you get a circle. If you fail, you get an X.

[Mini-Review] Ape Escape Academy

23 January 2006
  • Conclusion: A poor showcase for the hardware and a sloppy attempt to cash in on the pick-up-and-play fun of mini-game collections like Wario Ware, AEA is anything but a top-tier game. Stay away from this one.

Ape Escape Academy

23 June 2012
  • Conclusion: Ape Escape Academy is een spectaculaire misser, zowel op technisch als op designvlak. Gooi liever je zuurverdiende euro’s naar de apen in de zoo dan dat je dit koopt want Sony heeft het aangedurfd om een stinker van een game uit te brengen! Onwaarschijnlijk lange laadtijden, hemeltergend saaie minigames, slechte controls, mislukt design… Als je minigames wil, koop je dan een Gameboy en WarioWare en geniet van echt leuke spelletjes in plaats van deze collectie...
