Super Monkey Ball Adventure
1 June 2012
Excerpt: An ape in a ball. Next to picking up bananas it can also solve puzzles and save the world in some bizarre way. And that’s exactly what’s about to happen in Super Monkey Ball Adventure, the x-th title in the Monkey Bal series and now for the first time on PSP.
Excerpt: More Monkey bizniz from SEGA as Aiai and friends embark on an epic quest across the five kingdoms of Monearth. Strange forces are affecting each of the lands and you must discover what's at the heart of each problem.
Excerpt: No flies on this monkey in the graphics department. Super Monkey Ball Adventure for PSP is chock full of variety and good looks. Things sometimes are too micro to really be appreciated, but the detail in each level is nice.
Excerpt: Who doesn't love monkeys? I'm not embarrassed to say that I do. Ever since I was a small boy I've wanted a pet monkey, and even today my sister makes monkey noises when she sees me, as if to remind me that owning a pet monkey is a dream that will never come true.
Conclusion: THE VERDICT: Super Monkey Ball aficionados will get more out of this game from the get go than those new to the series. However, those that persevere will find an enjoyable, cute and fun take on your standard platform adventure with moments of pleasure and pain along the way.
Excerpt: Some things go together so well that you should never mess with the tried and tested formula. They just work. I’m thinking bacon sandwiches and brown sauce, chips with vinegar, Morecambe with Wise, Kylie with gold hot pants.
Excerpt: Super Monkey Ball Adventure is the latest in what is now a long line of SMB games and is the series’ first attempt at something new. So far the series has gone through three well received puzzle titles, each with their own set of mini-games, each title expanding on what its predecessor gave us.
