  • 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.

  • 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.
  • 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

The Next Level
27 November 2001
  • Excerpt: I have to confess that Super Monkey Ball didn't really interest me at first glance. The concept of monkeys in balls alone may be enough to satisfy a whole bunch of people, but unfortunately, I've become a bit more jaded than that, and I need a bit more than a few cute monkeys (and, damn, they are...

Super Monkey Ball

Nintendo World Report
20 November 2001
  • Summary: After spending four days with GameCube and the majority of that time with Super Monkey Ball, David is ready to render the final verdict on Sega’s quirky launch title.
  • Pros: Difficulty ranges from extremely easy to extremely hard, Engrossing solo modes and extensive multi-player support, It has Monkeys!, Seven different modes of gameplay, Simple intuitive control scheme and a gradual learning curve
  • Cons: A few more options for some of the mini-games would have been nice, Some expert levels in the normal mode can be absurdly hard, The ability to move the camera with the c-stick could have been helpful on some expert levels

Super Monkey Ball GameCube Review

  • Conclusion: Sega have created another master peace its wrong to call this a game it’s a peace of art painted marvellously on a simple canvas. With monkey ball 2 on the horizon and monkey ball Jr, there is even more reason to get excited about monkeys…

Super Monkey Ball, le test

Nintendo
1 January 2004
  • Summary: Bon je ne sais pas ce qu'il vous faut si vous n'êtes pas encore convaincus. Je peux cependant encore vous dire que l'ambiance sonore de Monkey Ball est bien qu'enfantine, très amusante, vous prendez plaisir à entendre les petits cris des singes, c'est mignon tout plein.
