Summary: I haven't really been that up-to-date with the Super Monkey Ball franchise, since the only other two games I have of the series are Super Monkey Ball 2 and Super Monkey Ball Jr. Both of which I did not really play too much. Then again, I haven't played them in a while, so maybe my experiences with them may change if I get back to them, but I recall them giving me a pretty hard time with their stage designs. So is it just me or is Super Monkey Ball 3D easier?
Summary: BUYER BEWARE! You cannot delete pre-existing data from the cartridge, so if you buy a used copy there is NO WAY to delete the data. I searched all over the web and its unanimous that you cannot delete the data. Capcom did a similar thing with Resident Evil Mercenaries where you cannot delete the save data. Developers do this to try to cut their losses from the used game market. I bought this game used from a gamestop and returned it quickly.
Summary: The game is great, I mean the classic Monkey Ball-style gameplay is perfect and the controls are great... the only problem is the game is WAYYYY too short. I beat it in like an hour or something.
Summary: I know this game is three years old, but I feel a need to write this review because its average rating is 4 stars, while Banana Blitz has an average of 3. This may lead some people to think that the Super Monkey Ball series was revived with this game. This could not be more wrong. Here's my theory: Banana Blitz got poor reviews because fans of the GameCube games had high expectations of it. These disgusted fans decided not to buy any more Super Monkey Ball games.
