    Starts getting old fast

    Ape escape academy is a so-so game, but it doenst come close to ape escape on the loose. All it is is that Specter hypnotizes monkeys, and trains them, and YOU! are going to be one of the monkeys getting trained. In stor... Read Full Review

    Monkey is monkey... burrrp!

    But not the worst. This is my first venture into the world of Ape Escape, and I can't say it was horrible, but not particularly interesting. This is a bunch of mini-games where you're at an academy trying to advance on t... Read Full Review

    With minigames having varying difficulties and luck almost never on your side, you'll have a share of frustrations.

    Starting this game, I expected great gameplay, monkey-rific fun, and absolute nonsense. I got the last two. The game starts off laughably easy, with some challenges needing a bit of thought to win, but unfortunately, you... Read Full Review

    Ape Escape Acadamy Is very difficult!

    Fun, but not on my top 50 fav. games. It has some good minigames, but not enough to make it a great game. Not nearly as good as Ape Escape on the loose, but better than some party games. I think that the main problem is ... Read Full Review

    Makers are trying to expand there horizands with more ape escape and failing

    It's terribly hard some of the games are impossible and the whole game reeks of chessyness. To be honest it cost me £5 which was fine but for anymore i'd really not be happy. Its an okay game but i feel the games ... Read Full Review

    It has it's moments of fun, but when they're gone it's just annoying.

    I ignored the mediocre reviews and bought Ape Escape Academy simply because I love the series. I saw clips and assumed it would be fun and although it is, some games are just annoying. Ape Escape Academy is basically ... Read Full Review
