A sensational audiovisual experience that starts to drag around halfway in.
Ape Out is an intoxicating fusion of percussion and destruction that oozes style from every angle.
Ape Out is a beautiful and bloody game that's given surprising depth by a tremendous soundtrack.
A fantastically entertaining action game that combines gameplay, visuals, and audio into an irresistible orgy of violence and… improvisational jazz.
Ape Out is a wickedly inventive, ultra-violent romp that doesn't overstay its welcome
Ape Out prioritizes style over substance, but it's weird and interesting enough to justify a play.
Like so many games, Ape Out is a power fantasy. Unlike so many games, Ape Out seems keenly aware of its purpose.
Ape Out is a marvelous example of what can be done with gaming when a handful of talent think outside the box. Challenging, occasionally annoying, but addictive gameplay, painted in gorgeous splashes of colour and quirky, attractive visuals, all backed with a breathless score. This odd release is proof positive that creativity in gaming remains alive and well. Go Ape.
Ape Out breaks its cage with an amusing aesthetics and a wonderful and jazzy soundtrack, both of them procedural generated. In some way, it plays like Hotline Miami, with its own ideas, and a constant feeling of urgency. A game with an owerhelming personality, that even shows up when our ape dies, in a memorable and stilysh death recap screen.
