I loved Super Monkey Ball on Gamecube (easily my favorite), the 2nd was pretty good too, but after that most of the Monkey Ball games haven't been very good. Banana Blitz was really good, too... but I prefer a standard controller for these games over a Wii Remote. Has anyone heard if this Super Monkey Ball for 3DS is suppose to be good or not? Any word on reviews from Japan or anything?
i've read a few previews--one thing I've heard a few times is that if you play using the tilt sensor (like using the wiimote, but tilting the system) you can't play with the 3d on, as the tilt makes your eyes lose the 3d effect. It is playable with the circle pad though, which is how I'll be playing it (Super Monkeyball 2 for Gamecube was my favorite)
I like the main Monkey Ball mode but this time around they got rid of the great mini games like monkey golf and monkey target. Now they only have 2 extra modes called "Monkey Fighting" and "Monkey Racing". The extra modes, this time around, are supposed to be full tier modes of the game instead of mini-games but they still seem like really stripped down modes.
If I get this it will be for the main story mode alone. The 2 other modes don't seem all that well done or polished. Wish they would have just added 5+ mini-games instead of these 2.
