    Had the game for the playstation and it was awesome but the PSP has slightly changed the controls and was definitely for the better..Id say if you liked it for PS1 or just like adventure games this a challenging must have game for your collection.

    This is awesome. I just got it and I love it! Some idoits may tell you it is just the same as the first, but being a die-hard Ape Escape fan I know its different. They added a whole new level, redid other levels, updated the audio and visual, added new minigames (duh), changed monkey descriptions, and replaced most Specter Coins. All Ape escape fans MUST buy this game!

    I really enjoyed it, but it is the first game i purchased so i guess the bar was none. It plays like a solid adventure platformer, and the gadgets were inventive.

    Near perfect remake of the original hit on the PS1 Ape Escape. Only thing that would have made it better is if it was remade for the PS2 or PS3, and if they kept the same control scheme.

    While it was a decent games for the PSOne, especially popular with the kiddies, it seems a waste of the PSP.
  2. The only major problem with Ape Escape is it doesn't really offer a thrilling gameplay experience. Much like the original, it lacks that all important "wow" factor.
  3. The finely tuned control that made the first game such a hit seems to have been lost in translation, but the game still has considerable charm.
