Super Monkey Ball: Banana Blitz Review

"Super Monkey Ball: Banana Blitz is a great Wii launch title and I highly recommend picking it up if you at all liked the previous games (discounting Adventure, which was an unfortunate departure). This is also an ideal choice for casuals looking to play Wii with friends or family. The title's easy-to-learn controls make it immediately accessible to newcomers or the uncoordinated among us. However, like with all solid Monkey Ball games, the puzzle arenas grow increasingly more difficult and later stages are downright insane – hence, although everybody can enjoy the experience on some level, only the skilled and dedicated will beat the title.

If you've been on the fence about the Wii controls, put those fears to rest. True, there is a different technique involved, but once you get the hang of it you will be flying through levels with precision and speed. Now that I've played through Banana Blitz, I would not want to go back to the older control configurations.

The single-player affair is engaging and rewarding, but although 100 levels seem like a lot, some of the previous outings actually included more. Given that some of Banana Blitz's 50 mini-games are throwaways, I'd have preferred that the developer spent more time making the single-player mode bigger and better and less time upping the mini-game count. All of that noted, there are still quite a few minis that are worth playing, such as Monkey Target, and they are also four-player-compatible."
Final Score: 8.4 RENT IT!
