What Gamespot Users have to say about Super Monkey Ball: Banana Blitz

  • User Rating 7.3

    Great mix and selection of mini-games but hit-or-miss with control scheme.

    Overall Super Monkey Ball is a fun game if you're buying it for all of the party games. It has quirky, comical fun for both a young and mature audience. If you're buying it for the single-player mode,...

    A good sequel with frustrating but fun single-player gameplay, but poor multi-player gameplay.

    A great single and multi-player game which is let down only very slightly by a controller issue.
