Ape Escape 3


Unfortunately, that little extra from the costumes is everything Ape Escape 3 adds to the main game. Gadgets are fun to use as always, but remain the same. Puzzles are also fun to solve, but aren't exactly challenging. And the overall level design,...

Ape Escape 3


Sony's monkey mayhem is still cute, but we could've sworn that we've captured these monkeys before

Lots of apes to catch ; Costumes add interest ; Story is kid-friendly

The series is stagnating ; The aiming and camera are iffy ; The game stutters and staggers

Ape Escape 3


It looks the same and plays the same, but once you've started chasing down those cute monkeys you won't want to put down the control. Ape Escape 3 gets nearly every element right, it's just not very ambitious in its goals.

Ape Escape 3

Plenty of funny monkey hijinks ; Transformations and gadgets make snagging monkeys a blast ; Mesal Gear Solid

Some of the transformations aren't all that useful

Grab your net and get to it. There be monkeys to catch!

Ape Escape 3 Review for the PS2


A nice catch.

Monkeys!; Pop-culture humor; Morphs and gadgetry; Tons of content

That can only be stomached in small doses; Annoying anime characters; Repetitive

The delivery is pleasant enough. While each song matches the theme of its level, all of the compositions are bright and happy renditions of generic soundtracks. The game looks like it sounds, so colorful and giddy that it must have been dipped in...

Ape Escape 3 - ps2


You'd have to wonder if there is any life left in a series that revolves around catching a bunch of runaway monkeys, but rest assured, there is more humor and more originality in this game than ever before

Ape Escape 3 Review


SCEA's monkey game delivers solid and fun gameplay that is a little bit above the average.

So, Ape Escape 3 is still a solid, fun game and fans of the series are probably going to enjoy this installment too. On the downside we have a game that has not seen much innovation, is not that aesthetically attractive and has fairly annoying camera...
