Excerpt: "Super Monkey Ball was one of the first games that I bought for the Nintendo Gamecube. I bought it because it looked fun and because you can play with up to four players. Just the thing when your mates are round for a session. The idea of the game is to collect as any bananas as you can and get through the goal as quickly as possible using a monkey in a ball. There are four characters to choose from AiAi, Meemee, Gon Gon and Baby. The game ...
Summary: Basically this is the best game on the cube. The multiplayer is good but average if truth be told. The main game is where it is really at for skilled gamers and it rocks. If you love games were you try to beat your high score then try it and if you dont then avoid. The gamecube controller was designed for this game and works better than the x-box and ps2 controller thus making the gamecube version the most sought after.And before i go if you like monkeyball then you will...
Summary: It has always been quite difficult for me to get interest in computer games for any longer than half an hour, if i can't do something i give up easily!

Summary: Super Monkey Ball is the finest multiplayer experience on the Gamecube without doubt. The 6 games on offer are a perfectly designed blend of accessibility and addictiveness - simple enough for anybody to play yet maddeningly difficult to stop.

Excerpt: "This game has been around for a while now, but I have only just happened upon it after seeing on sale for £10! Its great. You control a monkey in ball! Thats basically it! Oh and you have to get him (or her - there are a few different monkeys to choose from) through the goal after navigating a predetermined course which has more and more hazardous obstacles as you progress through the game. Only this morning - I had to go for a walk as I thought I ...
Pros: Monkeys in balls chasing bananas ! Need you know more?
Cons: There's monkeys in balls Man ! There are no disadvantages other than the game can be so infuriating sometimes you have to go outside and count to ten !
