    Maybe if the characters were more iconic. Maybe if this would’ve been a true sequel instead of a party game. Maybe if the game were fun. Maybe if monkeys could tango.
  2. If turning the third installment into a party game is Sony's idea of fun, then the franchise (if you can even call it that) is dead. I like the cel-shaded graphics and the music is all right, but the gameplay is a huge let down, especially when you consider the other party games on the market.

    Unfortunately, I defeated the entire game in about 3 hours.

    An awful game. Controls are never explained and the camera angle is almost always useless. Not sure how many times you can play 'run An awful game. Controls are never explained and the camera angle is almost always useless. Not sure how many times you can play 'run around and hit things' but for me, the answer is two. If you want a party game, skip Ape Escape P&P and wait for Monkeyball to come out on March 15th. Full Review »
