Summary: Take this review for what it is. I am not reviewing this as a family/kids game. I am reviewing it as a hardcore marble/ball game fan who adores the original Kororinpa: Marble Mania. On it's own, this game deserves 2 stars, however I am giving it a one, because I am so angry at them making a terrible follow up to one of the greatest games of all time! All they would have had to do to make a great game was to reuse the same game engine and make new, decent levels.
Summary: This is the sequel to another game called Kororinpa. Their both fun and addictive, as well as maddening and annoying. The graphics are really nice and the worlds you play in are imaginative, but the controls need improvement. In the first installment of this series the controls were to loose feeling and you had to move your wrist pretty quick to do special tasks in the game.
Summary: I bought this because I loved the marble run which came with the Amiga 1000 back in 1981 and have yet to find anything that matches it. Our family enjoy logic puzzles and games which present some challenges. We have a few that fit the bill, abeit with some annoying quirks: probably mercury madness is the closest to hitting the mark and least annoying. We have super monkey ball, which has more challenging runs, party games, speed challenges...
Summary: I found it very difficult to play this game, probably because I am not super coordinated. However, my 5 year old loves this game and can work the remote very easily. He loves mazes, puzzles, and video games, so this is a good combination of all of those things.
Summary: This is a MUST HAVE GAME FOR YOUR WHOLE FAMILY. It is so much fun and you will be laughing the whole game. It takes a steady hand and a be careful or you will find yourself yelling at the T.V. when it is you moving not the T.V.
Summary: So I truly loved the first game, so I figured this would be even better. Wrong... First, the controls are not nearly as intuitive as the first games (this is my husband's complaint). Second, you can't make progress through the game if you want to play multi-player or use the balance board. Third, this game is geared towards the younger crowd and seems to have many quirks that are neither neccessary nor funny.
Summary: Well, this has been a big hit with my boys. It is quite similar to Monkey Ball Jr. in the rolling through mazes. BUT you can use the wii balance board to go through them OR the controllers. My kids have really enjoyed it. I like that they have to get up to do it with the balance board. You do get dizzy though watching it for a while... it moves fast and changes angles.
