An enjoyable experience
21 December 2010 | by Heimski_HannesSee all my reviews

What is it exactly that makes the Ape escape games so fun? Well not having played Ape Escape 2 I'd say it has to be the game-play, the music and the fact that you get so many gadgets along the way to catch those darn monkeys.

I bought Ape Escape 3 a few years ago but I put it away for god only knows what reason. I picked it up again a few day's ago and finally managed to complete it. One thing I just have to say is that it was really fun. The different gadgets were cool and each one was unique and had something to do with catching the monkeys, you always had to use some gadget over the course of the game.

A new feature to this game was the costume system, while playing you could change costumes if the meter above the cracker life bar was full. Those were really fun to play as and most of them were really useful, although some of them were just there and had no real potential.

My only complaints have to be about the difficulty and the length. The game was really easy and with the ninja costume you can just ram your way through enemy's like there's no tomorrow. The length of the main game is also an issue, seeing as you don't return to any levels or do any mini-games. It took me only 4 hours (and 44 minutes) to beat the game.

So to finish this review I'd say that it was one hell of a game. Although it didn't exactly live up to the original, but it try'd its best.
