Much like George of the Jungle the movie, we suspect this would suddenly become massively entertaining if experienced under the influence of various intoxicants. As a platformer it’s not awful, but that’s probably the best that can be said about it. Still, despite its licensed nature and similarity to so many other genero-games, the Wii controls are actually decent enough. Often intuitive, they make pretty decent and unintrusive use of the remote and Nunchuk. Still, you wouldn’t need so much as a YouTube video promo to know what’s in this one: fight monkeys, jump, swing on vines - it’s harmless, but hardly worth bothering with.
