3.0 out of 5 stars Good game UNLESS you want to use it with balance board., March 20, 2009

= Fun:3.0 out of 5 stars 
This review is from: Marble Saga Kororinpa - Nintendo Wii (Video Game)
This game was heavily advertised as a balance board game, (I've been reading reviews for months) but no where I ever saw stated "but you can only play CERTAIN levels with the Wii board." (until the reviewer right before me. should have checked Amazon right before I bought it.)

The graphics are nice, and the controls are very intuitive and fluid. If you enjoyed the first one you'll probably enjoy this one, just note that despite the fact that the set up for the balance board is there (shown in the fact that you CAN play a handful of levels with it), it is not really a balance board game. Why the company did not make it an option for all the levels when they already created the programing for a few levels, (and not the story line levels) I would really like to know.

For me, the fact that SOME levels can be played with a balance board but not all, really alters my opinion of the design of the game. It should be either none or all.

On the balance board complaint -- Could you please tell me how to navigate the boards which go completely inverted using a balance board? The reason only some boards are balance-board compatible is that they don't require complete 360 degree inversions.

So all but 30 require a 360 inversion?

If the inversion is gradual, I don't see the problem. You're putting weight on one side until you've flipped over and then balanced again. If the inversion is sudden, you could step off the board as a specail command.
