All monkey ball chat here please!
I loved SMB and SMB2
In fact the reason I bought a cube was for SMB.
I find the controls on the mini games confusing and often they don't do what you want.
In the main game it's great in patches but there are times I could murder to be able to use a stick instead of contorting my wrist at weird angles.
Also the tune isn't as addictive as SMB's.
Must agree, the controls on some of the mini games just don't seem to work that well, its not a bad game probably more fun with a few friends and a few more beers.
Just got a copy of Rayman Raving Rabbids and for anyone who can't decide between That and Monkey Ball please get Rayman, played it for over 4 hours last night and its excellent.
I'm sad to say it but I'm really disappointed with Monkey Ball, I absolutely love the party games on SMB2 on the GC, but the 50 included with the SMBBB are almost all entirely awful. I think i'l try and trade this one in soon.
