This games strongest points are its characters, its animation and its story but thats not to say that the gameplay is poor, because it isnt.
The game plays like a cross between Prince of Persia and Uncharted with jumping, swinging platform sections between combat that has you use the available cover to get into a position to use your fighting abilities. There are also a few sections that have Monkey ( the lead character ) hop onto his Cloud which is basically a hoverboard, during these sections you can explore areas covered in water or chase after fast enemies to rescue your companion Trip.
Graphics are excellent, the odd frame rate issue crops up from time to time though I suspect this is due to the system loading up data for the next area in the background. Other glitches include slow loading textures on objects and some odd blurring effects when panning the camera quickly. On the whole though, the environments are stunning. Cut scenes deserve lots of praise, the characters facial movements are subtle and convincing.
Controls are fairly simple but manage to cover a wide range of moves. From time to time, reactions can see a bit slow.
The story will draw you in and push you to have a go at one more chapter, of which there are 14. None of the chapters are that long, so you feel like you are making good progress and you will never feel stuck thanks to your objective being clearly marked.
There is already one DLC pack available which gives Pigsy his own adventure.
I really hope there is a sequel, I want to know where the story goes next.
