The apes are charismatic and the storyline is passable, but this interactive drama tie-in forgets to find a role to cast the player in.

The Imaginati Studios' first game is an interesting experiment. Unfortunately, its façade of consequence and choice falls apart on repeat sessions

Planet of the Apes: Last Frontier is an exciting narrative adventure that fans of the recent film trilogy will love. Its biggest drawback is perhaps how little interaction you actually have with it and that some of your choices make no difference to the game's direction, but as a fantastic-looking, branching story in a loved world, there's nothing else quite like it.

Planet of the Apes: Last Frontier is the perfect fusion between film and video games as it moves away from other games of the franchise and focuses on the narrative. In this way, it offers us a completely different point of view of the war between apes and humans.

As an animation movie, Planet of the Apes: Last Frontier would be better. Understanding this product as a videogame, we believe that it is quite limited and we only have a couple of dialogue options to choose, being irrelevant in most cases.

Planet of the Apes: Last Frontier creates an engaging narrative that makes both the humans' and apes' predicaments and actions understandable, even when violence is involved. I truly cared about characters on both sides of the conflict, which made for some tough decisions when the two sides would clash.

While this game is a good addition to the existing lore of the Planet of the Apes franchise, it offers little in terms of actual gameplay. The plot of the game is strong, but it's just not enough to totally carry the experience. Final Frontier feels like a valiant attempt at storytelling in a new environment, but it just doesn't quite stick the landing.

Far too many times, the game moved the plot forward through a story beat that I specifically chose not to explore, instead opting for the other side of the tale.

A glossy though ultimately shallow use of the Planet of the Apes license, Last Frontier stands as an acceptable use of Play Link technology but little else.

Planet of the Apes: Last Frontier features a story that manages to excite and get players invested in despite it not going too deep into the lives of both apes and humans. It's also an important experiment in storytelling, and one that largely winds up being successful. Hopefully this leads to more titles that aren't afraid to challenge the established ideas of interactive narrative.

A beautiful interactive movie, which will appeal mainly to the fans of Reeves' trilogy. In its genre it's a great and pleasant, yet a little bit repetitive story for about three hours – and nothing more.

A beautifully cinematic story set within the current Planet of the Apes film continuity, as players direct decisions made by both humans and apes as a conflict brews.

An ambition cinematic outing that just doesn't have that much to offer.

Planet of the Apes: Last Frontier is basically a story driven tie-in, inspired by the trilogy from 20th Century Fox's franchise. Too short, too smart. In one word: forgettable.

I really wanted to like Planet of the Apes: Last Frontier. The Apes world is fascinating and a Telltale-esque game set in that universe has all the makings for an amazing experience.

I can see right ideas, but ultimately the Last Frontier feels like a demo for greater things to come, the apes behave like the actual movie versions but lacks the needed detail. In a nutshell, a good experience is deep inside the game but final results needed more cooking in the oven.

Planet of the Apes: Last Frontier is a decent but flawed adventure romp.

Planet of the Apes: Last Frontier is a game at odds with itself that's near-essential for fans of the film series but a snoozefest for anybody else.

Planet of the Apes: The Last Frontier is a mess of a title that tries to ape TellTale’s style to unfavorable results.

This is a great addition to any fan of the Planet of the Apes franchise as the story is both engaging and interesting. However, don't expect actual 'gameplay', think of it more as a 'choose your own adventure' where 90% of the story is pre-written but you choose how they play out the scenes they are going to have.
