    Monkey Ball is a hard series. This is my favourite of the series so far largely due to the adventure mode in this game. Highly addictive, frustrating and cute game.

    This is such a great game! I LOVE the adventure mode! It's so much like an RPG and it's challenging without being impossible. However, the multiplayer options are limited, which takes out of the fun...but it's still a fantastic game!

    I loved Monkey Ball 1 and 2 (and Deluxe) but this thing is gawd awful. First: The puzzle mode is 1-player only. No more sitting with friends playing the puzzle mode. Second: Loading screen! For example, in Monkey Target, you must wait almost a full minute to load the screen... and that is between each attempt--and you are playing on the exact same level each time. What is it loading?!

The puzzles are tough--very tough, and about all that is worth spending any time on. Oh, and Monkey Race has a grand total of 3 courses! Expand

    I played monkey ball 1 and 2 and they were challenging and at times too hard. This game is just too hard. The adventure is boring...just boring. The first 10 levels under beginner are equivalent to the advanced levels in the other two. Why do people think that making games harder and harder is fun? I do things at work all day that are too hard and boring...I dont want to do a video game I played monkey ball 1 and 2 and they were challenging and at times too hard. This game is just too hard.

    It just doesn't work for me, I like the first two monkey balls but this is, as the most reviews I've seen say, too frustrating to be any good.

  1. Long story short, the adventure motif simply didn't catch. [Sept. 2006, p.88]

    Super Monkey Ball Adventure is not worth your time, money, or frustration.
  3. Play Adventure for the solid traditional modes and adequate multiplayer, but don't expect to get too much enjoyment out of the dull platforming. [Sept. 2006, p.98]
