Will Monkey Man be a benefit in The Highrise?

25 replies 42 views Edited Apr 20, 2010

I was curious if ND could shed a little light on it's intended benefit.  It says "Climb Faster", but I have done some testing and it seems to do more in that you can move around more quickly when climbing and jumping, etc.

 

Is it me, or does it just help you climb faster?

 

BTW: Please don't ban me -- I have been a ND fan religiously since U1!  You guys ROCK!

You wouldn't realize anyone running faster because there is nothing in the game that affects running speed except terrain. Now, if you're like most people and use X jumping to climb the booster has no effect. If you just climb regularly you are a tad faster.

I think it will vary from a person to another. If someone knows how to use it and when to climb, then he can choose not to use it. Besides, there are alot better boosters than this one. Why waste a slot instead of having something help you?

Monkey Man is still useless as ever. If it affected all climbing instead of just ladders, a lot more people would be using it.

I use Monkey Man all the time. I always thought I felt a difference, even when pressing X to jump while climbing. Overall, I just feel more... flexible. I feel like I vault over obstacles easier, and can jump up stairs instead of running up them.

 

Then again, this may all be psychological. Eh.....

Monkey Man only increases your speed when climbing ladders, yes ladders only.

 

It's the worst booster in UC2, along with Break Up.
