    what is wrong with you people! this game is amazing! just because you suck at games you give this a low score? yes the game is challenging but it's not impossible. anyone who is decent at games should be able to finish it.

    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!

    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.

    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.

    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]
