    While the first two monkey ball games were great this one is even better. The increased number of stages is a bit challenging and i has the perfect number of minigames. This game seems to have everything balanced out.

  1. There is some undue frustration thanks to an uncontrollable camera, but this is still the Monkey Ball game to get. [March 2005, p.58]

    The constant loading times in between levels and in the menu screen put a damper on the fun. Other slight visual issues like drops in the frame-rate mean that this isn't the cleanest Monkey Ball to be released, but the game play remains accessible and fun.
  3. It's a simple premise in that brilliant sort of way, and it's helped along by fantastic level design full of undulating terrain, holes, ramps, bumpers, and who knows what else. [Apr 2005, p.76]
