3.0 out of 5 stars Not a bad mostly 3rd person balance game August 10, 2009
By Layna S
Fun: 3.0 out of 5 stars   
Gameplay Style
Unlike the Kororinpa games (Marble Mania & Marble Saga) or Super Monkey Ball where you tilt the environment like a classic wooden labyrinth game, this you move the ball itself like the Marble Madness on the NES from the 80s.
Control Types/Music
The music is mostly Techno, you move through worlds with your driver in your orb/ball like your traveling through them. Simple wii remote tilting, the balance board is WAY too sensitive & you'd have to be a tai chi master to use it.
Customization/Controls
You can customize your orb in terms of color of the middle, sides & hatches & lines with great textures unlocked from the beginning. You also can collect small pink orbs that are on the path or off the path that give you power to customize your max speed, acceleration, traction, air control, bounce, brake (you have a brake button), etc. you can customize the levels of where you want the power to be anyway you want & you can change it at every level. Now, what's great is that the controls work VERY well & are very sensitive which makes this game challenging. This isn't a game you will be able to breeze through or for little kids.
Extra Modes
You can play any level at any time in practice mode.
This game also has bowling (youtube video authors some loved it), but I hated it, I didn't feel the physics were good. This game also has multiplayer shooting as well as a soccer like games using orbs.
Conclusion
I got this at first because it was more a third person cam, but when you turn left/right, then your are viewing the orb from the side & it reminded me too much of Kororinpa marble saga which I already own & this doesn't have happy/cheerful feel though. This is not shovel ware at all, but it could still use a lot of tweaks.

Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Basics:

You tilt the wiimote to move the ball over winding courses toward the goal. There usually are several checkpoints throughout, that you can start at if you fall off the track. Once you fall off three times, you have to start the whole course over from the beginning.

If played perfectly, most of the courses can be completed in about a minute or two, but with some courses requiring you to jump across gaps and clear other difficult terrain, they quite often will take many attempts before you manage your ball with just the right speed and direction.

There are several pellets you can collect on each course, which you can use to customize your ball's physical properties(like max speed, traction, braking, acceleration etc). For most of the courses the default properties are perfectly fine, however on a few courses I did find that I needed to adjust these properties to handle that course's specific challenges. All the customizations are reversible.

Two ways to unlock new courses:

In Arcade mode, the courses are arranged in approximate order of difficulty with just one unlocked to start with. When you clear it before the reasonably-fast time-limit, two more open up. You then can clear those to open up one or two more at a time and so on.

In Career mode, the courses are grouped by their design theme in worlds of six courses each. Two worlds are open initially with new worlds not unlocked until you clear all six courses of a previous world. Here there is no time limit(though you can earn medals for fast times) and you can do the six courses in any order you want.

Control:

When you point the wiimote directly toward the screen, the ball stays still. Point it down toward the floor and the ball goes forward.

5.0 out of 5 stars challenging Balance board game December 21, 2011
By TTT
Verified Purchase
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I started with the Wii fit plus and like the table tilt game. I have marble kornicopia and Monkey Ball Step and Roll and like them a lot. So i bought this and not sorry i did! I love the challenge.
I play the games only with the balance board.
I would rate them as: 1) Marble saga Kornicopia as Beginner
2) monkey ball step and roll as advanced player. (very challenging) and
3) Vertigo as expert
vertigo seems to be more responsive to slight movement on the balance board.
Also you really get a workout.

3.0 out of 5 stars FRUSTRATING! November 14, 2009
Verified Purchase
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
this is a very good Marble Mania type of game with excellent controls. I just found the game to be too difficult to master. for the price, it's a good buy. make sure you use the wrist strap though, because you may throw the Wiimote at the TV. trust me on that part ;-)
I have tried it with the balance board and the game responds very well to the balance board. I couldn't keep up, although I sat down on the balance board and did very well. If you are an expert with the Wii balance games, I highly suggest this game.
