Ape Escape On the Loose





Ape Escape On the Loose 


I normally review sports games for Family Friendly Gaming, and felt like spicing things up by playing Ape Escape On the Loose for the Playstation Portable. It was a bit of an impulse purchase on my part, but I found out later that Family Friendly Gaming has not yet sounded off on the Ape Escape franchise. The storyline revolves around your character traveling through time to catch monkeys who have been transported there. You do this with a net. Once you have acquired enough monkeys the level is over. This should be a slam dunk for a family friendly game right? Well there is content in Ape Escape On the Loose that will raise some eyebrows. There is also some things that could have been done better.

The colors are okay in Ape Escape On the Loose. Various worlds will rely heavily on a certain color. The details are lacking, and Ape Escape On the Loose does not look as good as a lot of other PSP video games. Where this hand held game really suffers is the camera. I had to lie down with a nasty headache after playing this game on more than one occasion.

The music in Ape Escape On the Loose is pleasurable to listen to. I enjoyed the sound track, and felt like it really fit the theme of this adventure title. That is the good side of this section. The bad side to Ape Escape On the Loose is it has some evolution religious teachings in it. I am really surprised in an ultra sensitive to not offend people culture that such indoctrination is not caught.

Ape Escape On the Loose contains enough levels to keep gamers busy for a few weeks. Since there are camera and control issues it may take even longer to get through this hand held video game. I got Ape Escape On the Loose for a very low price, but feel like I wasted my money.

Ape Escape On the Loose is the most frustrating game I have played in awhile. I almost always had to hit the monkeys before capturing them. Even then I would not always catch them. There were times I was sure I hit a monkey, but the game did not register it. I also feel the controls are clunky in this PSP game.

The attire of one of the female characters could have been better in Ape Escape On the Loose. The whole evolution fiasco is something else that hurts Ape Escape On the Loose on the PSP. This game is portrayed as family friendly, but you have to violently subdue the monkeys before capturing them. I wonder where PETA stands on such concepts?
