    Oh crap. I accidentally put 10 instead of 5.5 (5). Well there now they even each other out. Read my actual review if you want an in depth look in the game. Yeah. . . .

    Dear god i'm so glad I got this game free and didn't buy it. The only original part of this game (monkey ball) is boring after about 5 min. No story line at all. The other 2 modes seem to be a copy of better Nintendo games. Save your money for something like Mario kart7, super Mario 3d land or resident evil. No matter how cheap you can get this it is not worth it.

    Gráficamente el juego es increíble y hace que logremos olvidar lo malo que es en realidad. El problema llega en la dificultad del juego, que es muy pobre incluso jugando con el giroscopio los niveles son muy sencillos y nada innovadores, cosa que se extrañó realmente en esta entrega.
    Pasar el juego no te lleva ni un par de horas por lo que recurres rápidamente a los minijuegos, pero es
    aquí donde todo se torna gris: todos ellos sin excepción son malos, llenos bugs y nada divertidos, la música es siempre la misma por lo que suele fastidiar y el gameplay es un caos total, absolutamente nada responsivo. Sin duda este juego es un intento fallido de repetir la grandiosidad de Super Monkey Ball Banana Blitz y la complejidad de las primeras entregas, haciendo de este un juego mediocre, fácil y sin sentido con minijuegos absurdos, aburridos y repetitivos que lo empeoran aún más.

    It's tough to recommend this game to newcomers to the Monkey Ball world based on the two rough game modes, and the otherwise decent Challenge mode likely isn't long enough to justify the high price tag of 3DS titles. The use of 3D is novel, but completely unnecessary – as we've all played these games at home since the Gamecube launch.

    Technically sound, but the gameplay is way too easy and unimaginative. [May 2011]

    Overall, there's just not enough content in Super Monkey Ball 3D to justify the purchase. The only mode worth playing is Monkey Ball, and although it is fun, it doesn't last very long. Both the 3D effect and motion sensor controls work great, but they can't be used at the same time. And no online functionality really strips the game of any prolonged use. Unless you're a Super Monkey Ball fanatic, this one's a pass.
