Super Monkey Ball 3D Review

25 July 2013
  • Excerpt: When Nintendo's senior director of corporate communications, Charlie Scibetta, said the 3DS would help quash the perception of the company as a haven for casual gamers, I think we're safe to think he wasn't using Super Monkey Ball 3D as an example. Older fans will remember when the game was released as a launch title for the Nintendo GameCube. Despite the cutesy monkey approach, it used elements that made similar titles like Marble Madness as good as they were difficult.

Super Monkey Ball 3D

Family Friendly Gaming
2 February 2013
  • Excerpt: I pre-ordered a Nintendo 3DS on Amazon because of the $25.00 credit they were offering towards a Nintendo 3DS game. That way Super Monkey Ball 3D did not cost as much. Yes I am always looking for a good deal that is legal. The Super Monkey Ball franchise has been a good one for families over the years. I was curious to see how Sega made the jump to the 3DS. There are some good points, and a few not so good.

Super Monkey Ball 3D 3DS Review

21 January 2013
  • Excerpt: Of all the 3DS launch games, Super Monkey Ball 3D is the most disappointing. Sega had a great opportunity to make a huge impact, as it did with the original SMB on GameCube, but the publisher dropped the ball with a title that feels hastily cobbled together.
  • Pros: Excellent use of the circle pad, varied and attractive worlds, traditional Monkey Ball style of play, looks cool in 3D.
  • Cons: 3D effect useless with sub par tilt controls, not enough levels, lackluster bonus modes.

Three-in-one game has good value, mild cartoon violence.

Common Sense Media
18 September 2011
  • Summary: Parents need to know that Super Monkey Ball 3D isn't just a ball rolling game, as past entries in the franchise have been, but also a kart racing and fighting game. Neither of these additional modes warrant much concern. The kart racing stages see karts spinning out of control and falling off of ledges, while the fighting game has simians whacking each other with gloves and mallets. Both are very cartoon-like in their presentation.

Test Super Monkey Ball 3D

Generation NT
30 August 2011
  • Conclusion: Super Monkey Ball 3D n'offre pas le jeu que les fans pourraient attendre. Le centre du jeu, c'est à dire le mode Bulle de singe si cher à la licence est ici bien malmené, dans le sens où les développeurs se sont contentés de peu. Ce mode premier manque cruellement de contenu et fait plus office de démonstration que de vrai mode de jeu. Les développeurs ont voulu apporter à ce Monkey Ball 3D un peu de diversité dans la présence de deux autres modes de jeux.
  • Pros: Deux prises en main différentes pour le mode Bulle de Singe, Un effet 3D convainquant, Toujours cette bonne humeur propre à la série
  • Cons: Un mode principal trop léger, Deux autres modes de jeux pas plus consistants, Un manque de contenu général rédhibitoire

  • Summary: A great showcase of 3D, but not much else
  • Pros: Both circle pad and motion controls are tight and responsive; 3D effect looks great.
