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

    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.

    Long-term Ape fans will be disappointed. [Sept 2011, p.92]

    Short, boring and not very inspired. This is exactly what we feared about Move: a rerun of Wii's worst mistakes.

    Not even nicely suited apes are able to save this repetitive, visually obsolete and boring game. You better get drunk before trying this ape hunt. [Issue#207]

    A wasted opportunity to show off Move control. [Sept 2011, p.102]

    The original Ape Escape was charming and innovative, but this entry is as basic as motion gaming gets. What really hurts is that there's no reason why Ape Escape couldn't have been the game to take the waggle genre to the next level, if only it had a bit more passion behind it.

    I am really surprised why you have rated this game so low. Of course it is not a must-have production, but just an entertainment to fulfillI am really surprised why you have rated this game so low. Of course it is not a must-have production, but just an entertainment to fulfill short time. Yes, the goals are almost the same, but I could really enjoy 20-30 minute`s sessions with Ace Escape. If you don`t predict a lot from that game, you can be surprised how much fun it it gonna give you. I paid for that about 3000JPY, which means about 28 USD and I do not regret. I am sure I will be back to Ace Escape after tiring day at work or during relaxing days at home for make me a good mood. Expand

    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.
