Super Monkey Ball Banana Mania
Top Critic Average
If you’re after a fun, pick up and play a game to pass the time or to enjoy party games with family & friends, look no further than Super Monkey Ball Banana Mania
Without the nostalgia goggles, Super Monkey Ball Banana Mania quickly rolls downhill.
There are missteps and a new look that doesn't quite pop, but Banana Mania ends up an enjoyable celebration of the series in its prime.
Another sub-par remaster of Super Monkey Ball that ruins the precision and elegance of the originals and replaces it with janky, unpredictable controls and shoddy presentation.
There isn't much new in this best-of compilation, but when the core package is this well-made and feature-packed, that's easy to overlook.
Super Monkey Ball Banana Mania was a pleasant surprise, in that it doesn’t mess too much with a formula that works and it makes strides to welcome newcomers into the fold. Not all of its stages are created equal, but this is a great entry point into a series that’s been lacking one on modern platforms for a long while.
Super Monkey Ball Banana Mania is a solid, unglamorous return to the series greatest moments. We’ve been steering monkeys in balls across increasingly difficult landscapes for 20 years now, and while Banana Mania doesn’t return the series to its hallowed position of old, I don’t want it to stop quite yet.
Super Monkey Ball Banana Mania delivers a mostly delicious and nearly never-ending buffet of bananas and challenges to keep pretty much any player rolling for a good, long time.
All the best of Super Monkey Ball in a great smoothie of content taken from twenty years of history. Fans will go crazy and newbies will have so much to discover.
