Super Monkey Ball Adventure


After five years of filling the console scene with just puzzle-filled games, Sega has enlisted the services of Traveller's Tales to take the Super Monkey Ball crew out of that comfort zone and place them in a pseudo-platforming adventure, with classic...

Taken as a whole, this isn't a terrible game, just a very disappointing one. If you want to get the most out of it, buy it for the new puzzles and not the story mode. Also, unless you've got a burning desire to play new SMB puzzles right now, just wait...

Super Monkey Ball Adventure


For those who haven't been paying much attention in recent years, SEGA has had a new puzzle/platforming game that has been quite successful. The

It is really unfortunate to see a game that has had so much success in the past struggle as much as Super Monkey Ball Adventure does on the PSP. Most people who pick up this game I believe are going to be disappointed from start. This is a game that...

[Mini-Review] Super Monkey Ball Adventure


So this is why the monkeys never left those puzzle stages before.

With only the puzzles of Challenge Mode and the Party Mode games to save it, SMBA would have been better off as just another puzzle game -- except it's not nearly as good as the puzzle games.

Super Monkey Ball Adventure


It's got monkeys and it's got balls, but this adventure is anything but super

The controls remain solid ; Minigames and arcade levels distract ; Traveller's Tales got some work

The adventure is not worth taking ; The camera system is lacking ; Inferior to its predecessors

Super Monkey Ball Adventure


Monkeys have a lot of fun, but they're just no good at adventures.

Packs in classic puzzles and party games; Monkey Cannon is a great new mini-game

The main adventure just doesn’t hold up; annoying loadtimes and other small irks

In fact, for a game with a storyline out of a second-rate children's cartoon, the game can feel pretty punishing. When you take on a task like helping a beekeeper collect his bees (by precisely bouncing through a series of midair trampolines) or...

Super Monkey Ball 2


Sega seems badly stunted in the anal phase of Freudian development. Not only is their game based around monkeys running inside balls maneuvering about hazardous environments, Super Monkey Ball 2 is full of cut scenes that declare "The magic spell is...

Super Monkey Ball 2 review


Just a few words can rap Super Monkey Ball 2 up: the ultimate party game. Super Monkey Ball 2 is a flat out huge puzzle game with 150 new solo-player levels to adventure through, new characters and 12 multiplayer games, including monkey tennis,...

Really, the only major complaint that I have is the sound, which really isn't a huge complaint. Solo-player gets repetitive after a while, but it still has very fun, unique and challenging gameplay. Controls and multi-player action are both great,...

Super Monkey Ball


There's just something charming about a game in which you must roll monkeys around in balls to collect bananas and avoid falling off to your untimely demise. Maybe it's the simplicity of the concept, or maybe it's just that the execution is just so...

Fun, yet simple gameplay; Addictive multiplayer modes; Catchy music

More single player modes would have been nice; Camera can sometimes cause unfair deaths

Super Monkey Ball is a multiplayer game that everyone who isn't jaded about their games should own. It's downright fun and you'll find yourself having a hard time pulling yourself away from it. While the single-player feels a little underdeveloped, you...

Super Monkey Ball review


The GameCube launched with a new Sega franchise known as Super Monkey Ball, a 3D puzzle game, involving of all things, monkeys in balls. As odd as this concept might sound, it turned out to be one of the best games on the Cube during the retail 2001...

For GCN gamers that don’t own a GBA, this is the next best thing you’ll come to Monkey Ball gaming on-the-go. For those that just don’t buy Nintendo systems, it’s highly suggested that you look into this game. For those used...

Super Monkey Ball 2


Super Monkey Ball - One of the first great games for the GameCube, and the sequel is a worthy addition to the disturbingly cute, primate series.

150 (!!) new floors; Brand new mini-games; Good, simple fun

Boring Story mode; Out-of-date sound; Graphics are nothing special

While it is a fun romp, it does have a few glaring flaws, and hopefully Amusement Vision can clear those up before the next title. If you're already finishing up Super Mario Sunshine and need something to gnaw on for a few weeks, than meet your new...
