Sega's loony Super Monkey Ball series makes its Wii debut with motion-sensitive controls and a barrel full of new features. As with previous entries, the action in Banana Blitz involves tilting the environment so a monkey-encased orb rolls safely toward the exit. Eight themed worlds, ranging from pirates to outer space, feature eight puzzle stages apiece, and for the first time in the series, a climactic boss encounter. The Wii Remote tilts the environment left or right so players can collect bananas and avoid traps that threaten to burst each monkey's bubble.<br><br>Another new feature is the jump ability, which panicked primates rely on to advance through multi-tiered stages and to succeed during the boss fights. Of course, a Super Monkey Ball game wouldn't be complete without an assortment of mini-games to partake in, and Banana Blitz features an eclectic mix of over 30 sporting events and arcade-style challenges. Up to four players can challenge each other in hammer throws, foot races, golf matches, squash games, hurdles, a home run derby, and more. Each event uses the Wii Remote in different ways, as players swing, shake, tilt, and flick the controller for more monkey merriment. Less

The 2010-released edition of the popular game show title features more than 8,000 phrase-based puzzles, and virtual, big-headed versions of hosts Pat Sajak and Vanna White. Wheel of Fortune is a word game in which players take turns guessing letters to gradually reveal the hidden phrase in a puzzle. The amount of money awarded for solving the puzzle depends on the values of the letters the player correctly guesses, determined by spinning a large, colorful wheel. The contestant with the most money after several rounds of play wins the game, and earns the opportunity to try for additional prizes in a bonus round. A flick of the stylus spins the wheel, and players call letters and fill in puzzle answers by tapping an onscreen keyboard. As many as three players can compete on one DS, with the computer controlling the additional contestants in single-player and two-player games. Less

INTRO:
Back on November 17, 2001 when the Nintendo Gamecube FINALLY released, there were three main titles that really stood above the rest; Star Wars Rogue Leader: Rogue Squadron II, Luigi?s Mansion, and the one that a lot of people went for, Super Monkey Ball.

Pros Simple, addictive gameplay, lots of extra modes to play with

Apparently, in order to work as a game designer at Sega, you either have to be really creative, or really disturbed. Probably a nice mix of both. Super Monkey Ball pretty much proves that theory. I can only imagine the meeting where one of the designers stood up and said, "I want to make a game... Read full review »
