    You're the last surviving astronaut of a deep space mission, marooned on a desolate, savage world. A world where humans are prey and apes are their masters. Welcome to the Planet of the Apes on PS one (cue: suitably dramatic music). This third-person, 3D action adventure is based upon the original two Charlton Heston films Planet of the Apes and Beneath the Planet of the Apes, as well as drawing upon the original 1963 novel (so no Marky Mark action here!). As Astronaut Ulysses (AKA Taylor in the films), you must overcome your ape captors and save the human race from the nefarious simian plans. Use stealth, acquired weapons and stolen equipment to get past the ape defences and if you're discovered do your best to defend yourself with whatever to hand - it's either them or you. Make contact with sympathetic chimps Doctors Zira and Cornelius if you hope to survive long enough to save humanity. It won't be long before you're shouting "Get your stinking paws off me, you damned dirty ape!"

    • New enemies to overcome including Mandrill Assassins and Renegade Baboons as well as gorillas and chimps

    • Use stealth or your fighting prowess to complete your objectives

    • Encounter familiar character from the classic movies, such as Zira, Cornelius and Dr Zaius

    BATTLE FOR THE PLANET

    Fight for humanity as Ulysses, a deep-space astronaut shipwrecked on Earth nearly 2,000 years into the future. To his horror, a deadly breed of intelligent apes have evolved from mankind and now dominate the Earth. Hunted to near-extinction, the rag-tag human survivors huddle in fear of the Ape Empire.

    Against impossible odds, Ulysses must infiltrate the simian society and halt the genocidal plan of Ape General Ursus to exterminate mankind forever. Familiar faces like Cornelius and Dr. Zaius - even new terrors like Mandrill assassins and renegade baboons - await in this pulse-pounding tribute to the sci-fi cinema classic. The future of the human race lies with one. It lies with you.

    Join forces with ape allies, Dr. Zaius, Zira, and Cornelius as they aid you in your fight for survival.

    Battle savage new foes like mandrill assassins, renegade baboons, giant rats, hyenas, and mutant bats.

    Summon powers of instinct, stealth , and raw strength to survive a world where humans are the prey.

    Discover the mind-blowing secrets of the Ape Empire in APE CITY, the FORBIDDEN ZONE, CITY RUINS, and other hostile environments.
