As the great Gwen Stefani once sang: "This s*it is bananas. B-A-N-A-N-A-S." And we suppose that Ape Escape 2 is a bit bananas, seeing as it sees you attempt to scoop up monkeys with a futuristic fishing net. The second game in the series launched on the PlayStation 4 last night as part of Sony's PS2 Classics initiative, where it will set you back £7.99. PlayStation Plus subscribers, however, can secure a 25 per cent discount until 9th August.
There's no word on this releasing in North America just yet, but we wouldn't be surprised if it popped up as part of tonight's planned PlayStation Store update. The port's decent enough, upscaling to 1080p and running at a smooth chop. The controls do feel awkward from a contemporary perspective, however, and the voice acting is beyond abysmal. Still, if you're looking for some early noughties platforming action, then this is top banana.
