Super Monkey Ball: Banana Splitz

  • Summary: Monkey Ball hasn't done much to change up its tried-and-true formula in the past decade, and tends to play things fairly close to the chest. You're a monkey, you're in a ball, and you have to roll around to collect bananas. Full stop, you know what you're getting here when it comes to most of the franchise.

Super Monkey Ball: Banana Splitz PlayStation Vita Review

Modojo
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 impressive. You can chalk up this inconsistency to the publisher dreaming up different ways to reinvent the franchise.
  • Pros: Over 100 quality Monkey Ball levels, vibrant graphics, adorable cartoon monkeys.
  • Cons: Gimmicky party games, unimpressive creation tool.

  • 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.  There are a series of different trails that you must navigate through.

  • Summary: Sega’s band of banana hunters return, bringing their unique mix of puzzle gaming and party tricks to the PlayStation Vita. Given the hardware’s multitude of abilities, it should be the perfect venue for the game but a few slip-ups prevent Banana Splitz from reaching its full potential.

  • Conclusion: Super Monkey Ball on Gamecube was an instant classic. Brilliant controls and level design paired with some classic mini-games (Monkey Target), made for one of the best launch titles on the console. Sega followed it up with a good sequel, but lately they have been struggling to recapture that initial magic, mainly a result of trying to attract a younger audience and making use of various new methods for controls.
  • Pros: + The core concept is still fun. + Plenty of monkeys to roll around with. + Monkey Target still rocks. + Some great levels to conquer.
  • Cons: - Lots of gimmicky mini-games. - Random level editor. - Bland visuals. - Touch screen only menus. - Vita goes into sleep mode when gyro is used.

  • Excerpt: En pratique, cela se discute. A l’instar du petit singe Aiai enfermé dans sa bulle la série tourne en rond. Diriger la sphère sur des parcours étroits et sinueux suspendus dans le vide, gérer l’accélération et l’inertie, trouver le bon compromis entre le ramassage de bananes (synonyme de vies supplémentaires) et l’impitoyable compte à rebours du chronomètre… le concept en lui-même demeure amusant mais reste figé.
  • Pros: Un concept toujours efficace., Des niveaux retors., Des minijeux…
  • Cons: … pas très intéressant., Rien de neuf., Caméra qui donne la nausée.

  • Summary: Super Monkey Ball: Banana Splitz is een leuke game voor tussendoor. Het heeft een hoge verslavingsfactor en biedt alleszins een uitdaging. De trophies zijn een leuke bijkomstigheid, maar wij betwijfelen of er überhaupt mensen zijn die er het geduld voor kunnen opbrengen om alle glimmende bekertjes binnen te trekken. De game is zeker niet slecht, maar op één of andere manier voelt het niet als een volwaardige game.
  • Pros: Hoge verslavingsfactor, Koddige graphics, Veel uren voor trophyhunters, Uitdagende gameplay
  • Cons: Voelt niet volwaardig aan, Meer iets voor tussendoor, Gaat snel vervelen, Saaie menu's, Weinig tot geen spelers online

  • Conclusion: Super Monkey Ball auf dem Gamecube rollte sich direkt in unsere Herzen. Steuerung und Level-Design waren brillant. Zusammen mit den klassischen Minispielen wie etwa Monkey Target war es einer der besten Launch-Titel für die Konsole. Sega brachte dann noch eine gute Fortsetzung, aber in letzter Zeit hatten sie sehr damit zu kämpfen, die anfängliche Magie wieder einzufangen.
  • Pros: Im Kern macht es immer noch Spaß, viele Affen zur Auswahl, Monkey Target ist immer noch toll, ein paar großartige Level
  • Cons: viele Gimmick-Minispiele, Leveleditor nur Zufalls-Generator, langweilige Optik, Menüs nur mit Touch-Steuerung, Vita geht bei Bewegungssteuerung in den Ruhezustand

23 October 2012
  • Conclusion: Super Monkey Ball su Gamecube divenne subito un classico. Ottimi controlli e un level design ispirato, il tutto abbinato ad alcuni classici mini-giochi, realizzati per uno dei migliori titoli di lancio della console. Sega ha proseguito con un buon sequel, ma ultimamente sta facendo a pugni per ricreare quella magia iniziale, cercando di attirare un pubblico più giovane e facendo uso di vari sistemi tecnici per il controllo.
  • Pros: Il concept è ancora bello, tante scimmie, Bersaglio Scimmia è divertente, in alcuni momenti è piacevolmente difficile
  • Cons: Tanti minigiochi sono pessimi, l'editor di livelli è casuale, grafica scarsa, touch screen obbligatorio nei menù, la console entra in modalità Risparmio Energetico durante il gioco
