Very fun...and very challenging.       Product Reviews

I knew I liked this game when I began to play it at my best friend's house. This game had everything to offer. It had immense replay value, a lot of challenges, and fun multiplayer modes too. Thing is, I never played the original Super Monkey Ball before, so I won't be able to compare the two games in this review.

For starters...Monkey Ball is like a puzzle game. A game in which you have to roll your monkey through a series of paths to get to the goal at the end of each stage. Every level has a time limit. And on each level there are a number of bananas--collect a hundred of them, and you gain an extra life.
There are multiple modes you can play this game on. There's adventure, challenge mode, practice, and mini-games. Mini-games are all the simultaneous four-player games you can play, such as bowling, golfing, and racing. I have not played these mini-games much at all, so the only thing I can tell you about them is that you unlcok them by earning "play points," and you earn these points by playing single player challenge mode.
Adventure/Story mode is basically a one player adventure, with a plot (not a very good one though) behind it. Story mode is broken up into many different "worlds," which are then broken up into individual stages.
Challenge mode can be played from one to four players, but only one person can play at a time. You basically take turns playing, meaning you only need one controller for four people to play! Challenge mode is the heart of Super Monkey Ball 2. It is broken up into three difficulties: Beginner, Advance, and Expert. Beginner has 10 stages, Advanced has 30, and Expert has 50. Beginner is something a 6 year old can master. Advanced is something that will take much practice. And expert...well, you gotta be out of your M.I.N.D. if you think you can beat it! Some stages have hidden goals. These hidden goals allow you to skip over the next level. If you beat a difficulty without losing all your lives, you get to play through its hidden stages, which are harder than the normal ones.
I should also add that challenge mode's stages are slightly different from those in story mode. And now for the summary of practice mode...it contains all of the story mode stages you've played before so you can get better at them to your heart's content.

And that is Monkey Ball 2 for you. Very fun. Very addicting. And very challenging. I suggest you play Challenge mode. It's probably the best reason for getting the game.

We bought this game for our 6-year-old. She and my 4-year-old actually both love it and have no trouble playing it together. As to how much learning value it has? I guess teaching spatial and fine motor skills would be the thing here. Honestly, for the times when you aren't taking your kids to the museum or reading to them--this is a nice break.
Amazing Game       Product Reviews

In a gaming world dominated by big names such as Halo, Half Life, Warcraft, and Final Fantasy, the Monkey Ball series provides players with a new meaning of fun.

First off, it is an easy game to pick up play. Similar to Katamari Damacy, you don't have to be a gaming master, or "gosu" as people call it, or devote hundreds of hours to hardcore practicing to play the game at a competent level. In fact, the beauty of Super Monkey Ball 2 is that you don't have to be good at all and you'll still enjoy it. This game is undoubtedly harder than Super Monkey Ball 1, but learning is part of the process to any game.

The main part of the game itself consists of you having to maneuver your way through different courses and worlds to reach the end, while collecting secrets on your way to "beating" the game. Those secrets range from unlocking new multiplayer games to obtaining new music. Besides that, there is a plethora of party games that can keep children and adults alike entertained for hundreds of hours.

All in all, this game is just plain fun. The game tries to keep cutthroat competition at a minimum and makes it enjoyable for everyone.
Pulled out of the shelf       Product Reviews

I was 9 when I bought this- I had previously wanted a game (I can't remember the game, unfortunately.), I happened out to pick one that looked pretty interesting. It was Super Monkey Ball 1.

Judging by myself, I had a pretty hard time. I haven't played it three years, because I had been playing it wrong.

Here is, you're a monkey in a ball, rolling to get in the goal. It may look kiddy, but is fun to master, and the physics are great. 6 mini-games in the original, 12 in the sequel, the replay value can get pretty high if you're into the games.

The mini-games are:
Monkey shot (like Time Crisis), Monkey Boat, Monkey Tennis, Monkey Soccer, Monkey Dogfight, Monkey Bowling, Monkey Golf, Monkey Billiards, Monkey Target, Monkey Fight, and Monkey Race.

As I sit and watch the records on Vortiginous (http://server1.vortiginous.com/smb/), mostly by the famed Packattack, both games are fun.

If you want somethinnng more challenging to master, Super Monkey Ball 1 is your best bet. If you love mini-games, go for #2.

(If you buy this, don't forget: if you complete Expert without a continue, you get Expert Extra. Expert Extra without a continue: Master. Master Mode without a continue, Master Extra. Expert EX to Master EX is NOT story mode stages.)
