  • Excerpt: The gameplay is relatively simple. You must take your monkey from the start of each level to the goal by tilting the level to make him roll there. But fear not, they have made it a billion times easier (and funner) by giving you a third person perspective behind your monkey...ball. The player uses only the control stick to control the level, although sometimes, you press the A button out of habit hoping for your monkey to jump.

  • Summary: Sega’s Super Monkey Ball for Nintendo GameCube will keep you rolling! Tilt the stages just right and your monkey will zip down ramps, launch across a vast ocean, and maneuver through party games galore. Because they inhabit a transparent ball, the four versatile monkeys can act as a bowling ball (with pretty impressive spin), golf ball, and billiard ball. And the party doesn’t end there!

Super Monkey Ball

Game Ratio
31 October 2003
  • Excerpt: This game resembles Marble Madness but is much harder. You control a ball with a monkey inside to the goal of each level. The entire screen moves instead of just the ball when you are rolling the monkey around, making the game pretty to control. Graphics, sound and control are decent, but the real draw is the unique gameplay and multiplayer modes.

Super Monkey Ball – Second Opinion

GameCritics.com
25 February 2003
  • Excerpt: While I agree with Peter's review for the most part, I wouldn't say that the barrel of monkeys was completely full. I had to knock a few points off, partially because I don't think monkeys are intrinsically entertaining, and mainly because I found the game's technical shortfalls were serious enough to detract from my overall enjoyment. Looking at the main game, I found it to be incredibly too difficult for anyone except experienced players past the Beginner level.

Super Monkey Ball 2 – Second Opinion

GameCritics.com
25 February 2003
  • Excerpt: Brad says in his review that a sequel can't get a good score by serving up "more of the same." But despite his claims to the contrary, Super Monkey Ball 2 serves up what is essentially the same experience as the first game. Super Monkey Ball 2 doesn't reinvent the concept of rolling monkeys around in balls, and it doesn't have to.

  • Excerpt: There's just something charming about a game in which you must roll monkeys around in balls to collect bananas and avoid falling off to your untimely demise. Maybe it's the simplicity of the concept, or maybe it's just that the execution is just so solid that you can't avoid but to like the game. In a word, Super Monkey Ball is fun.
  • Pros: Fun, yet simple gameplay, Addictive multiplayer modes, Catchy music
  • Cons: More single player modes would have been nice, Camera can sometimes cause unfair deaths

Super Monkey Ball – Review

GameCritics.com
5 October 2002
  • Excerpt: When I first heard about Super Monkey Ball , I was looking forward to a couple of other high-profile GameCube titles, like Star Wars: Rogue Leader and Super Smash Bros. Melee . Super Monkey Ball had nearly slipped under my radar screen since the arcade game from which this game is ported never saw the light of day outside of Japan, and I knew very little about it.
