  1. With a large variety of extra collectibles, four-player simultaneous multiplayer, single-player trophy achievements, a level editor, and three difficulty settings, Marble Saga: Kororinpa is a huge offering in a tiny package.

    Marble games aren't everyone's idea of a thrilling adventure, but Marble Saga: Kororinpa may very well sneak up and show the curious a good time.
  3. The intelligently designed stages offer a well-balanced challenge even without bumping the difficulty to hard. [Mar 2009, p.86]
  4. The story stuff isn't important, but the gameplay is really solid and well worth checking out.
  5. It retains some of its predecessor's faults, but Marble Saga is still a leap forward for the Kororinpa series.
  6. One for Balance Board owners only, because if you're going to be using the Wii remote, Kororinpa is the better game. [May 2009, p.84]
  7. Like any good sequel, Marble Saga manages to build upon the unique game play ideas of the original, not to mention addresses the serious lack of levels the first game was plagued with. But for every step forward the game takes, it takes two steps backward with its sluggish physics implementation.

    this game was really fun to play, I dont have much time usually but it was so addictive I finished it within a week. Im not sure what some ofthis game was really fun to play, I dont have much time usually but it was so addictive I finished it within a week. Im not sure what some of the critics are referring to - there is no technical issues, you could only really have problems with the playing the game if dont know how to play a console called a Nintendo Wii or simply have trouble controlling your hands.
    That being said, after the first 20or so basic levels, the game does start to get challenging and requires some skill to get record times (you will hopefully pickup those skills if you enjoy the game)
    For me it was the increasing (but not impossible) challenge of passing the levels that made it enjoyable to play, I recommend this for moderate gamers.
