    Ape Escape is quite funny, but the gameplay is too repetitive and boring to keep you motivated.

    It's a shame where the series has headed lately, and fans should skip out on PlayStation Move Ape Escape altogether.

    In conclusion, Ape Escape provides a relatively short game for the gamer and doesn't add anything new to the franchise nor makes good use of the Move capabilities. It's unfortunately one of those stock standard Move games that seems to be the go at the moment.

    A disappointing game, that although succeeds in being a game for all types of public, is too repetitive and has a very limited cooperative gameplay.

    With a super-casual experience Japan Studio ruined the name of Ape Escape. Game feel funny only for a couple of minutes and then sink into a spiral of boredom and frustration.

    It still manages to feel hackneyed and ignorable. [Issue#208, p.89]

    La saga de Ape Escape siempre ha innovado, sido divertida y dando libertad al jugador para cazar a los monos. Este juego de PlayStation MoveLa saga de Ape Escape siempre ha innovado, sido divertida y dando libertad al jugador para cazar a los monos. Este juego de PlayStation Move es aburrido. Lo unico que haces alrededor de unos cuantos niveles es mover la red con el mando move para cazar a los monos, tambien puedes usar un tirachinas y un aspirador reuniendo baterias para atrapar a todos los monos de una vez, los graficos son buenos, pero que no os engaƱe; la jugabilidad es simple, la camara se mueve de forma automatica y tu solo mueves el mando move de forma casi aleatoria por que el juego es muy facil, y, en general, se hace repetitivo y aburrido, ademas de practicamente nada rejugable.
