Summary: We had higher expectations for this game since we have Super Monkeyball 2 on our old GameCube and have always enjoyed playing it. It's a quirky and unusual game for that platform, so we thought this would be a good choice for our daughter. So, onto the DS version. While it is challenging, the controls leave a lot to be desired.
Summary: This game is not for everybody, but what it does, it does well. The premise is simple--use the D-pad or the stylus to roll your monkey character around the screen, collecting bananas and trying not to fall off the edge of the platform. This is ALL the game is, so if you're used to games that have an arcing storyline, this isn't really going to be your thing. It's just a bit of arcade fun. This isn't to say it's not challenging.
Summary: i recentaly bought this for my daughter, and she hates it, there is nothing you can do and the quality is very poor, the screen is all fuzzy, and it is not just our Ds, we play other games and it works just fine, but monkey ball is a rip off! dont buy it!
Summary: Sega's Super Monkey Ball series has always been one of those kind of franchises that offer simplistic fun, but what's made the series so memorable has always been it's unique charm and presentation. The series makes it's debut on the DS with Super Monkey Ball: Touch & Roll; and while it offers much of what fans would expect from the series, there's nothing here you haven't seen before, and haven't seen done better either.
Summary: I Bought this game thinking that it would be as good as the other versions of this game. i ended up being pretty disappointed. the story mode on this game is extremly short and once you beat that, the only reason to play this game is for the mini games. 2 of the minigames, out of the 6, are actually fun (Golf, Air hockey,). if you like to play repetitive mini games, then buy this game. otherwise don't.
A little problem with the new mini game Monkey Wars

Summary: This game has a main game like other Monkey Ball titles but this time you can control the monkey with your stylus instead of the d-pad. I think the stylus sucks completely on this game and I hate HAVING to use it. Yes you MUST use the stylus for all the mini games and for some main game levels (I am impartial to the use of the stylus on Metroid Prime Hunters as well so if you use it there you might like it here).
Summary: I'm a giant super monkey ball fan and this one might be the worst. The stages are 3-D and the monkeys are 2-D....blech. The party games are awesome, but the story mode is impossible, the controls are pretty skectchy, but maybe be enjoyable for some younger and beginner gamers.
Summary: 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.
