Summary: I'm surprised at the harsh reviews this game has attracted across the internet and here on Amazon. Super Monkey Ball is fun. It's simple, addictive and challenging. A lot of disgruntled reviewers appear to be mothers or fathers who mistakenly believed that Monkey Ball is child's play. It isn't. Just because a game isn't brown and full of guns doesn't mean it's for kids. To finish the last levels of Monkey Ball you're going to have to be good. Very good.
Summary: I very much enjoyed the original GameCube version and also had a lot of fun with the first Wii title, but this game is terrible. The balance board makes the game so difficult that even getting to the goal on the early stages is a challenge, you can forget collecting bananas along the way. The Wii remote is much better but still feels less precise than in banana blitz.
