I bought Super Monkey Ball for Vita mostly out of a misplaced sense of nostalgia. I was a huge fan of the original Gamecube game, spending all hours of the night with college friends playing Monkey Target and other great minigames. And 11 years later, I was ready to recapture that fun.

Unfortunately, that's all SMBBS really is: fan service and little more. All the components are still there: solid level design in the main challenges, minigames, and so on. But what's there is not really well implemented on the Vita. Optional tilt controls are best avoided, as the Vita's gyroscope is simply not up to the task of handling the precision required by the main levels. Sadly, the left analog stick doesn't fair much better, as the rather loose Vita analog doesn't allow for much of a range between barely moving and full throttle. You'll find yourself rocking the analog back and forth uncomfortably in jarring motions, constantly fighting the game's singularly awful camera.

Unfortunately, much of the gameplay just hasn't held up well. The main stages quickly ramp up in difficulty and are well designed, but everything else feels rote and by-the-numbers. Even the supposed track creation function only allows you to generate a semi-random track using found/photographed objects. The minigames are largely the same as those you've seen before, and the once highly-addictive Monkey Target and Monkey Bowling are relegated to easy, poor-controlling shadows of their former selves. If you're a fan, you've seen this all before, and probably in a better-controlling form.

The graphics are decent but not exceptional. Colors pop on the Vita's screen but textures are poor (the water in the Monkey Target stage looks like something from the N64 era).

Banana Splitz makes a great addition to the Monkey Ball series, and is a must-own for fans.

For those who are familiar with the first two games and enjoyed the challenge of trying to complete all of the courses, Banana Splitz will still challenge the heck out of you on the Advanced setting. There are 50 Advanced courses which start off at a high level of challenge, rivaling the hardest levels on the first two games right from the start. You'll struggle to make it to the end, but for a game like Monkey Ball, that's a good thing! What other replay value would there be if you didn't have to learn the stages in order to succeed?

For those who are new to the series, there is plenty of casual-friendly content, too. The Beginner and Normal modes are very accessible, and there are tons of mini games, some of which are worth spending a couple hours messing around with.

A new feature is the ability to generate random levels by having the game turn photos into courses. You take a picture of anything, and the game will attempt to make a stage that looks like the picture. The level variety in this mode is a little lacking, but if you buy a $2 optional DLC from the Playstation Store, you can add a lot more pieces which add tons of challenge to it, and I've even seen it generate a course I was unable to complete. This adds a lot of replay value for anyone, as you can just mess around with random levels if the main game is frustrating you. This is also a great mode to play to hone your skills when you don't have enough time to play through the full game in one sitting.

For new players, one thing that may confuse or irritate you is how you move the ball in the main game. You actually tilt the level itself rather than move the ball.

This game is a very unique game and a game vita owners should get if they want to experience all of what the vita can do. the graphics are perfect for the cartoon look and the gameplay is smooth and fun. its very challenging and very fun. the only thing wrong is that the game gets boring after a long time playing it. otherwise overall great buy

Other than this installment I have only played the Gamecube version of Super Monkey Ball. The Gamecube version is fantastic, rewarding, and simple to control. But SMB Banana Splitz lacks almost any camera control at all making it nearly imossible to steer or aim. I expected a challenge, but this is inaccessible and downright frustrating in the worst possible way. Don't waste your money.

I have always been a fan of the Super Monkey Ball series, even back on the Gamecube/PS2. This game however I found dissapointing. I do not like the new graphical extremely animated style, and I believe the levels are altogether far too different from when the series started.

Good game. If you've played the previous ones, this will be no surprise. Controls well. Good price. Would recommend it.

I love the Monkey ball games and was looking forward to the Ps Vita version and it did not disappoint. It is great. I love the mini games, they are especially fun with another person. And the challenge courses are the same as the on the counsel, but on vita you can choose to use the stick or tilt. Awsome
