Super Monkey Ball: Banana Blitz review

  • Feels like a sequel
  • Unlockable courses
  • Minigame marathons
  • Jumping bits get iffy
  • Bosses are kinda lame
  • Minigames aren't all great

Banana Blitz won't be converting any Monkey haters, but for those who can't get enough of the perpetually trapped simians, it's a great sequel and strong part of Wii's launch lineup. The visuals are clean and smooth, the music's right on target and the motion controls generally function well (we had a few hiccups with slowing and stopping the ball). Solo play should last a good while, but it's the minigames that'll keep Blitz from collecting dust well into the new year.
