29. Ape Escape: On the Loose
With countless Ape Escape games running amok in the gaming world, it's easy to want to hang up the net and give up the chase. Ape Escape: On the Loose, however, offers a return to simpler times, while keeping the next generation of simian snatchers interested.
A remake of the PS2 original, On the Loose provides another opportunity to get in on the ground floor of the series, this time with upgraded graphics and a smattering of new monkey-themed minigames. The translation isn't perfect, and the controls are lacking, but the game's mixed bag of platforming challenges, gadgetry, and charm overshadows these few complains. Ape wrangling is messy work, after all, but in the end it's worth it.
