    It's nice to get new equipments, especially the fire sword / ice sword and the electric sword, they are very cool! ^_^

    It was a pretty decent party game, though could've been a little better. The controls aren't really the best, but they handle well enough. Some weird things can happen here and there, like weird live action videos, so that's pretty charming. Most mini games are fun when you can get use to them. It's not as good as the main AE games, but it's a good spin-off.

    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.

    It's good enough for a little while, but if you're looking for a party game that will keep on going and provide kicks for more than one party you're looking in the wrong place.
  2. Ultimately, though, even "five Pipo monkeys in different colored pants!" aren't enough to make the same repeated games and gadgets interesting—unless you're a 7-year-old or a stoner.

    The gadget-filled action gameplay has been deflated into a fairly typical party game. [Holiday 2004, p.92]
