Im Großen und Ganzen ist das Spiel wirklich gut gelungen. Nicht allzu teuer, Spielspaß pur und lange Story. Ein Game für die ganze Familie. Die verschiedenen Aufgaben und das Nachdenken in manchen Situationen macht gemeinsam viel mehr Spaß. Wie bereits erwähnt, kommt kein Blut im Spiel vor und so ist das Game auch für kleine Abenteurer sehr geeignet.
You can tell the developers tried to make a good game with Space Chimps and it shows. The gameplay is varied and the levels are pretty well paced. I'd honestly like to give the game a higher score, but there are a lot of medium to minor flaws that prevent me from doing so. Luckily, nothing prevents the game from working. Although Space Chimps does borrow elements from superior games that have done certain mechanics better, it still works relatively well and is a moderately fun action platformer for the kids. For $20 to $30 bucks, depending on which platform you get it for, you should be able to go bananas.
Spanning double the length of its on-screen counterpart, Space Chimps is a brief, albeit fun romp. There's not a lot to really rag on and there's not a lot to really applaud - "average" is the key word for this platformer. Kids should have a fun enough time, but don't expect this title to push past its core audience.
It doesn't offer anything new, and in fact offers most everything old. That's nice in some respects, but between that and the short length, the gameplay just doesn't justify the price.
Whether you’re traveling through the belly of a giant sand beast or swinging through the alien jungle, the double-jumping, swinging, switch-flicking and so on are so exhaustingly familiar that you can zip through with your eyes closed from the word ‘go’. The truly dire visuals are just the canker on the cake. Some children may enjoy the mediocre movie, but even they will recognise a complete rip-off of a game when they see it. This is a worthwhile game purchase in the same way that a greasy Happy Meal is a healthy source of nourishment.
If you couldn't tell by now, I did not enjoy Space Chimps. The gameplay is flawed from the moment the game starts and right up to the end it never really gets better. Some rare pieces from the occasional stage stand out as an offering from a mediocre or less than average platform title but those moments are few and far between. This title is an afterthought that was pushed out the door to milk a little extra money off the license and considering the film itself was overshadowed by better, more successful kid movies I suppose it shouldn’t be surprising that this feels like a second string effort. If your kid wants to play with monkeys in space buy him a barrel of monkeys and a toy rocket ship; it'll be cheaper and probably more enjoyable for both of you.
What really brings this game down is the fact that it’s providing us with nothing new. As you might have noticed in the text above, the game has nothing going on for it. You will surprised by some of the graphics here. Some games on the PS2 and Xbox even looked better back in the days. If you are after a simple and fun platforming adventure, you are looking in the wrong direction. The only excuse you have for buying Space Chimps is if you are gifting it to someone that you really dislike. At the end of the day, movie licensed games just took a step (make that a jump) to the worse thanks to this game.
Adaptation du long métrage d'animation actuellement sur les écrans, Les Chimpanzés de l'Espace fait figure de trou noir vidéoludique. Il engloutira tout : vos espoirs, votre patience, votre argent. Heureusement, dans l'espace, personne ne vous entendra crier.
