Barely played the originals so went into this pretty much blind. Loved all the story levels and some of the alternate modes were cool. Challenges seemed great at first but then you see the stage counts and realize you can't just pause or suspend. You have to do them all in 1 sitting and without hitting retry once like I did because dumb. Finished all the main game levels but master(should come back eventually) and marathon which is 100+ stages together fuck that. Tried out all the party games which seemed good except for Monkey Target. Went back into the original to feel the difference and yeah its trash in this game. Favourite party games are fight, golf and shot.

Unfortunately like that 1 annoying thing in challenge modes, there is another annoying thing present in all of main game. If you die like <5 times in a stage it asks you if you want to turn helper mode on. It repeats this for every stage in every session with no option to turn it off???? Seeing that graphic every time, pressing no everytime, having to also press skip each time to get past the replay. So many little things added up to bring down this game which they could have easily circumvented by having toggle options in the menu. Yeah the dlc is shameless too.


A collection of Monkey Ball levels from 1,2 and Deluxe with added content on top of it and online capabilities. It simplifies the story too much though making it the same as any other levels in the game.


Why tf does this game have so much content packed in it’s insane

This game is just really great, a huge love letter to the monkey ball series and a great way to experience previous Monkey Ball titles imo. Sure the physics aren’t quite what they were originally, but they’re still fun and super bouncy and addictive so as far as I’m concerned I still had a lot of fun with this. 2’s story mode has a lot of highlights and surprisingly not a whole lot of frustration (well, outside of the clock tower level personally. That entire level and all stages associated with it can go dive under a tractor for all I care). On top of Monkey Ball 2’s campaign, you can the stages and challenge modes from 1 2 and deluxe with all different difficulty styles (which is, you know, a lot), a heap of cosmetic options including additional playable characters like Sonic, a heap of party games that all feel great to play apart from Monkey Targets for obvious reasons, sure the story mode presentation could’ve been better and sure the physics could be tweaked some more to deliver something even better, but for what this is, this was a lot of fun to play.

Also you can play as lil Kazuma Kiryu in a lil ball. The dame da ne man himself!
