Super Monkey Ball: Banana Blitz

 

The Monkey Ball series has been around for quite some time. Sega has done a number of things with the series over the years and it remains one of the most unique franchises in gaming. When the Nintendo Wii came onto the scene, its motion sensing...

Super Monkey Ball: Banana Blitz is one of the most fun Wii titles out there, and makes the best use of the controls. It's a sign of great things to come for party games on the system-let's just hope developers follow up. If you're a fan of the series,...

Super Monkey Ball Banana Blitz (Wii) Review

 

As one of the Wii's launch titles, we finally get our hands on review. Will we go bananas for Super Monkey Balls or will this installment slip and fall?

Super Monkey Ball: Banana Blitz

 

What a wonderful way for Sega to kick off its support for Nintendo's fledgling Wii console. Much like the console itself is designed to do, Super Monkey Ball: Banana Blitz delivers a simple, fun gameplay experience that makes it an excellent choice...

Accessible to players of any skill level, but only be mastered by those with a lot of practice and/or skill ; Highly addictive single-player mode and fun multiplayer mode with mini-games on par with Mario Party's best ; Appealing look, despite the...

Not enough music variety, and what there is grows annoying quickly ; Some of the mini-games feel like filler, or simply aren't that fun

Aside from Zelda, Super Monkey Ball: Banana Blitz is as close to a must-have retail title as the Wii has right now. Whether you’re playing alone or with friends, it’s a simple, but addictive experience. It’s so good that if Sega’s upcoming Sonic and...

Super Monkey Ball: Banana Blitz

 

It was almost five years ago when the Nintendo GameCube first hit store shelves, and with it a handful of launch titles that would drive Nintendo into what is now considered the 128-bit generation. Among a majority of rough ports, a few games stood out...

Super Monkey Ball Banana Blitz

 

I wonder how the Monkey Ball franchise got started. Who decided that what video gaming was missing was monkeys and balls, and more specifically monkeys in balls? Well, no matter how the idea came about, Super Monkey Ball was the result. A surprise hit...

Conclusion:Super Monkey Ball on the Wii is still an idea that excites me. But Banana Blitz isn't what it should be, with controls that are overdemanding when they should feel natural. And while the game boasts an impressive amount of multiplayer...

Super Monkey Ball: Banana Blitz

 

Those adorable little monkeys are at it again, this time on the Nintendo Wii.

Single-player game offers familiar Monkey Ball gameplay with easy-to-grasp controls

Touchy remote-control response results in hit-or-miss party games, with far more missing than we'd like

Super Monkey Ball: Banana Blitz review

 

Five years ago, Super Monkey Ball launched with the GameCube. Sega had just gone through bankruptcy and ceased production of the Dreamcast. It was the first time that the company had supported a Nintendo console. Their former arch-rival was now a...

Super Monkey Ball: Banana Blitz is not a radical change in the direction of the franchise that Super Monkey Ball Adventure was. That's a good thing though. Sega managed to improve upon a formula that has worked for five years by implementing new...

Super Monkey Ball: Banana Blitz

 

: Mediocre design meets an adorable premise.

Worse yet, though it contains 50 mini-games, Banana Blitz finds itself unable to match the limited offerings of past Monkey Ball titles. The popular and addictive Monkey Target lacks the additional maps and options that made it such a hit in the first...
