Summary: Monkey Ball is a simple idea: roll your cute little monkey who is enclosed in a ball through levels and make it to the goal without falling out. I am a huge Monkey Ball fan. I bought a lot of the other versions and have always loved every single one. So when I saw Super Monkey Ball: Banana Blitz, I thought "I have to buy this!". So I did. My sister and I excitingly turned on our Wii and inserted the game hoping for a lot of fun. I was instantly dissapointed.
Summary: I was looking for a game for us to play with our 4 year old. Monkey Ball has a lot of games, but a lot of them are too difficult for her to enjoy. She has much interest, but ends up getting frustrated with most of them. I'm decently wii skilled, and some of them made me mad too. Maybe better for a little older kids...the price is good though, so I think we will probably get our money's worth...just not what I was looking for.
Summary: This game is very difficult to figure out and play. It was a gift for my 10 year old and she has difficulty with it. My 6 year old definitely can't play it properly and that frustrates them when it should be fun! They still attempt to play it and I hope that it will eventually be fun for them but for now it just isn't. Disappointment for sure...
Summary: I have loved all the Wii games so far, so we were excited to get this one for this kids. Most of the kids (ages 4-8) found it too hard and frustrating, and when I played it, it made me half motion-sick trying to roll the characters all over the place. I guess we just didn't understand the premise of the game. I've never played the original, so if you have, you'll have a different frame of reference.
Summary: The Main game is enjoyable- but that is a formula that has been set in stone. The controller adds a new element- and its a blast. However- they are trying to sell most people on the MiniGames- and they just aren't good. I have played a handful of them- and they all control very poorly. Half of the time- we just started over because one of the controllers would go eratic. I hope that this isn't a sign of what is to come from SEGA for all of their Wii games.
