While Super Monkey Ball is a classic and beloved series, Banana Blitz suffers greatly from bad motion controls. The Wiimote just wasn't up for the task of the accuracy required for these tilt stages- which leads to a really aggravating experience on the console. Banana Blitz was re-released in recent years for modern consoles and I'm sure with a traditional controller it's a much better game but on the Wii it just wasn't cutting it. At least there were a lot of decent multiplayer minigames to check out which were fun for a few hangouts as a kid.
