Summary: Perhaps I just don't have the magic touch required to get this game going. A friend and I tried it out and quickly grew frustrated with it; it is VERY difficult to get the ball rolling using the Wii remotes, the balance board is a bit easier but still VERY CHALLENGING.
Summary: I started with the Wii fit plus and like the table tilt game. I have marble kornicopia and Monkey Ball Step and Roll and like them a lot. So i bought this and not sorry i did! I love the challenge. I play the games only with the balance board.
Summary: Thanks to the balance board the game is most fun. It's a lot like the Marble Saga games, that's a good thing. You roll around a ball and defy gravity, while listening to mildly entertaining music.
Challenging Ball Rolling Game - Controls are precise but a little awkward
9 January 2011
Summary: Basics: You tilt the wiimote to move the ball over winding courses toward the goal. There usually are several checkpoints throughout, that you can start at if you fall off the track. Once you fall off three times, you have to start the whole course over from the beginning.
Summary: If I could give this game negative stars I would. The game froze 3 times on me before I finally gave up. None of my other games have done that before or since so it was clearly this travesty of a game.
Summary: Maybe you have to have the balance board which I don't, but with the wii remote it is horrible. Standing still is pointing the remote at the screen, holding it completely level, pointing it to the floor controls going forward, then rotating it left or right is what makes you turn.
Summary: My 6 year old son loves this game. By far his favorite on the Wii. It is difficult for him, but he is able to complete most of the levels on his own. It is a good concept, and well implemented, although some of the more difficult levels are just frustrating.
Summary: this is a very good Marble Mania type of game with excellent controls. I just found the game to be too difficult to master. for the price, it's a good buy. make sure you use the wrist strap though, because you may throw the Wiimote at the TV.
Summary: Very well done ball rolling game (I guess this is a genre now!) Graphics have seen a huge boost over the original PSP version and the motion controls work great. Level design can cause headaches at times, a lot of practice needed.
