not as insanely bad as people say? it's honestly a mid monkey ball game rather than an outright bad one imo. The motion controls are kinda lame, yeah, but they work reasonably well enough to have the game be properly controlled plus the levels are more designed around the more imprecise control scheme. There's also a jump button for some reason, which is really a love it or hate it addition. I haven't played much of the minigames because my friends don't trust this game so can't say anything about that. If you have a wii and like monkey ball maybe give this a shot with an open mind?
