  1. If anything Super Monkey Ball: Step & Roll is the simplest in the series if played with a Wii Remote and possibly the most difficult if using the Board, for all the wrong reasons.
  2. The original Super Monkey Ball wasn't designed with a balance board in mind, any more than monkeys are meant to wear waistcoats, and the end result is just as odd and incongruous. It might well be time to stop grinding that organ.

    Ill-advised from concept to execution. [Issue#93, p.112]

    The newest Super Monkey Ball is an perfect example of how one big screw-up takes the whole game down the drain. The absolutely horrible controls immediately destroy all the fun that the game can offer. This is a shame. The lovable main characters are definitely in a wrong game. [Apr 2010]

The gameplay is fun but using the Wii Balance Board constantly is bad, just make a regular Super Monkey Ball game but add some original addition that doesn't effect the controls. Full Review »
