5.0 out of 5 stars SMB2: Brilliantly Addictive, 30 Dec. 2004
This review is from: Super Monkey Ball 2 (Video Game)
Super Monkey Ball 2 is the follow up to the highly successful original Gamecube game, and it makes all the right moves in being as addictive, and fun, as before.
The formula here hasn't been changed much, but it would have been nigh on stupid to have done so. The simple, addictive, and often highly frustrating gameplay is what makes SMB2 work, and with 150 odd new levels it will keep you busy for a very long time. However long you spend on the single-player mode will often depend on your patience levels, but the new story mode offers the chance to choose different levels when stuck.
Add to this a multiplayer mode which cannot be beaten for it's light-heartedness and simple, uncomplicated mini-games, you have a cracker of a game. Arguably the best mini-game from SMB was monkey target, and this has been improved with the ability to have multi-players taking flight at the same time. Throw in some new yet still addictive games like monkey soccer and monkey tennis, along with old favourites such as monkey billiards, SMB2's multiplayer mode succeeds, and succeeds well.
The flaws to this game are minor, but they are noticeable. The difficulty has a tendency to fluctuate wildly, and many levels leave luck as the deciding factor as to whether or not you will succeed, as opposed to raw skill. This will probably determine the condition of your joypad after playing SMB2.
This game deserves 5 stars for the levels of replay value and fun to be had from it. Although not perfect, its one of the best on the system. A definite must-have.
