Excerpt: For many years we have been extremely supportive of the Super Monkey Ball video games from Sega. Unfortunately even the best franchise can have a flop here and there. Super Monkey Ball Step & Roll is that flop. Sega tried to mix in the Wii Balance Board with Super Monkey Ball.
Excerpt: Monkeys inside balls, rolling around like hamsters set loose inside your living room, has made for a pretty popular franchise. SEGA's Monkey Ball series has moved beyond its arcade origins to become a home favourite, especially on the Wii.
Summary: If this were the first Super Monkey Ball game on the Wii, I’d be more inclined to give it a higher score. The basic mechanics are solid. When the game works the way you want it to, it can be very fun.

The trick is that you're not so much moving the monkey as you are the tracks, mazes, and obstacle courses that separate the aforementioned Points A and B.
Summary: AiAi and all his friends are stepping onto the Wii Balance Board in an all-new party game for the Wii. Super Monkey Ball Step & Roll brings back what you love about Super Monkey Ball and promises plenty of surprises around every turn.
Conclusion: If anything Super Monkey Ball: Step & Roll is the simplest in the series if played with a Wii Remote and possibly the most difficult if using the Board, for all the wrong reasons. Even if you have fun playing with the Remote you’re still playing a stripped-down and easier version of a title released...
