Super Monkey Ball: Banana Splitz – Review (Vita)
7 September 2013
Excerpt: One of the more iconic Sega franchises that is not named Sonic makes its long await return to the handheld consoles with Super Monkey Ball: Banana Splitz. 11 years since it was originally released, Super Monkey Ball has been unfortunate for not being able to recapture the magic that was contained in...

Super Monkey Ball: Banana Splitz PlayStation Vita Review
21 January 2013
Excerpt: Super Monkey Ball was a welcome surprise during the GameCube launch, circa 2001. Since that time, Sega has released a new game in the series on just about every platform since, and something has been lost with each new entry, save for Super Monkey Ball 2: Sakura Edition for iOS, which was quite...
Summary: Thankfully " Super Monkey Ball Banana Splitz " is available at a budget price straight away on the Vita. Even despite the system’s relative lack of games, there’s not enough here to justify a full price.
Excerpt: The Super Monkey Ball series has seen many releases over the years since it was released. The idea is simple. Get a monkey to the goal within the desired time, while collecting bananas. While the monkey is, as the title suggests, in a ball.
Conclusion: Super Monkey Ball Banana Splitz has a little something for all ages. The difficulty levels mean younger players can have some fun playing the main game, but expect even the first few worlds in normal difficulty to provide a challenge for them.
Pros: Lots of worlds to complete. Graphically very good. Some excellent mini-games.
Cons: Not being able to move the camera whilst moving. Gyroscope as a control in the main game is useless.
Excerpt: After the brilliance of Super Monkey Ball and its fantastic sequel, it seems Sega cannot hit the right note with the series any more, especially on the handheld, where the franchise has yet to supply a good enough game worthy of the Super Monkey Ball label.
