If you’re looking for something with a deep story, items to collect and a leveling up system, then Ape Out is not what you’re looking for. However, if you want something that gets straight to the point and plays like Quentin Tarantino’s take on the Cowboy Bebop opening, then get ready for some whiplash whilst spanking the monkey.
This is not a perfect game, however, and if you don’t take to the aesthetics or need a narrative function to your bid for freedom you will be left wanting. However, if you remember the cathartic joy of Carmageddon or love Hotline Miami, there’s something in Ape Out for you. Get your gorilla on and Ape Out, it’s fantastic! Ape out is available now on PC and Nintendo Switch. Alternatively, check out more information on the official website.
That leads me to my next point; Ape Out certainly doesn't have much longevity gameplay-wise. By this, I mean that shortly into the 2nd disc, everything started to feel very samey and boring. Unfortunately, that feeling didn't go away until I completed the campaign and by then, I realised that Ape Out is quite a short-lived novelty. That being said, it does provide a ton of fun for the short while that it lasts so if you're looking for a bite-sized action-packed game to play for a couple of hours then you won't be disappointed.
