Hail to the Chimp Review

IGN Entertainment
11 March 2010
  • Conclusion: Hail to the Chimp is designed to be played with others, and whether you play online or offline, four player matches are a lot of fun. Playing against flesh and blood opponents in heated competition adds a whole new level of excitement to the experience. Between ganging up on your buddies or stabbing allies in the back, you never know what to expect and you'll love every minute of it.

Politics represented as a party game, just OK.

Common Sense Media
19 June 2009
  • Summary: Parents need to know this game pokes fun at the presidential election process by creating minigames that have silly connections to politics. While there is minor violence involving cartoon animals, it's all pretty tame. There are some drinking and smoking references but nothing too graphic and the "crude humor" is light, including references to monkeys flinging their feces and a female animal's estrus cycle (the equivalent of a human's menstrual cycle).

  • Summary: Very little in the way of variety, which kind of hurts a party action game to the point beyond repair.

Hail to the Chimp review (X360)

5 August 2008
  • Excerpt: The humor is practically non-existent with even the puns falling flat (and I usually love those). This wouldn't be a problem if the rest of the game were an improvement, but it's really not.

Expert Review

7 July 2008
  • Summary: When you first see the box art featuring a big-eared primate with a goofy smile jumping over a cartoon White House, it's clear that Hail to the Chimp, "The Presidential Party Game," is all about satire. What's not clear is exactly what sort of game you can expect, and this disparity is a good metaphor for the game itself. Hail to the Chimp is so keenly focused on delivering humor that it seems quite unconcerned with offering entertaining gameplay.
  • Pros: Witty social satire, Humorous animal jokes, Vibrant artistic style
  • Cons: Dull, one-dimensional gameplay, No real variety in game modes, Lame puns

Gamer vision
6 July 2008
  • Excerpt: Name: Hail to the Chimp Genre: Party Game Platform: Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 (Reviewed on Xbox 360) With America nearing another presidential election the country is gearing up for the typical mudslinging that precedes the actual vote. Comedians are preparing for a few months of easy jokes, and Wideload Games has decided that it was the perfect time to release a satirical comedy based on the electoral process.
