Excerpt: Sega has gotten Super Monkey Ball on a lot of different systems. Super Monkey Ball Touch & Roll is specifically designed for the Nintendo DS (editor: mainly in the controls). Many of the favorite monkeys are back inside their balls rolling around in some of the most annoying puzzle levels conceived by the brilliant minds at Sega. The ESRB rated this game ‘E’ for Everyone, but forgot to mention the very crude humor found within this Nintendo DS cartridge.
Excerpt: Super Monkey Ball Touch & Roll is the latest attempt by Sega to incarnate a version of their puzzle-like game on yet another platform. This time around, the globed simians try to roll their way into gamers' hearts on Nintendo's DS while making use of the touch screen. When I tried the game I was appalled, but fortunately some time showed me that the game wasn't a throw-away port effort from the developers-and I found a magic moment where I enjoyed time spent with my...
Excerpt: I love monkeys. Anyone who knows me reasonably well will know this fact. When I was younger I would apparently badger my mother for a pet monkey and even today, if I were to get a pet dog, I'd try to name it Monkey, or at least Abu (the monkey from Disney's Aladdin, if you're not up on famous monkeys). So, Super Monkey Ball, with the cute little guys rolling around in balls, appealed to my monkey loving side, as it did to gamers all over the world.
Excerpt: The idea of playing Super Monkey Ball on the go is one that’s intrigued me for a while. Initially, I thought that it would be better suited to the PSP’s analogue stick, rather than the touch screen of the DS. However, the DS is what we’re looking at here, and we’re talking touch screen all the way in Super Monkey Ball: Touch & Roll . And that control system is where the focus will be for most players, so I’ll start there.
Excerpt: After a three ½ year absence, gaming’s most bizarre bunch of simians have returned to a portable system. In that time, you’d think that a newer version of Super Monkey Ball on superior hardware would result in a better game. Sadly, that has not happened. Like a lost love recently reclaimed, there are some things that seem okay upon first glance and then as time goes on, the flaws become more and more pronounced.
Excerpt: The Super Monkey Ball series on consoles started back in 2001 when the Nintendo GameCube launched. It became a popular series due to its simple concept and addictive gameplay. After a few titles and even more success with the series, SEGA decided to bring all of the monkey-rolling action to the Nintendo DS. Unfortunately, Super Monkey Ball: Touch & Roll isn't the best of the series but it's a fun game that fans will really enjoy on-the-go.
