Why It's a Damn Dirty Ape

NOTE: PlayStation and Microsoft Windows versions only.

  1. Poor controls.
  2. Terrible combat mechanics. All you do is mash a button until the enemy dies, hoping that they don't block your attacks.
  3. The PlayStation version has horrible game design, such as moving walls and other glitches.
    • It should be mentioned that the "moving walls" were a common occurrence in many PlayStation games, but in this game, they are painfully obvious.
  4. Near useless weapons. Probably not strong and/or as if there's some kind of a small hitbox.
  5. The camera is too sensitive.
  6. The club is sorta useful. However, it can still be blocked, can miss, and the third swing leaves you wide open to attacks for a moment.
  7. The knife is likely worse than your fists. It barely does any damage and can be easily blocked by apes.
  8. You are required to fake a cardiac arrest and call an ape via an alarm on the first level. However, there is a probability that the game will glitch, causing the ape to never show up to take you to the morgue which you are required to do in order to progress, unless you go into a room where the ape will show up and fake the cardiac arrest there.
  9. The medical kit is rare and it doesn't fully heal you, unlike every game with a medical kit.
  10. No extra lives nor checkpoints. If you want continue, you must save the game after completing the level and load the game as continue, just like Castlevania: Symphony of the Night.
  11. It was released fairly late for a PS1 game as it was in 2002, they didn't bother releasing the game on PS2, GameCube and Xbox even though those consoles have been around since months ago.
