The motion controls of the Wii original are stripped out for this remaster, leaving an entertaining if not quite excellent outing.

A welcome revival of a much-loved franchise, although Banana Blitz was never the best entry and Sega has had to accept too many compromises in porting it from the Wii.

This remaster of a previously solid entry in the Super Monkey Ball franchise initially thrills, but the shine fades fast.

As a return effort the core of Super Monkey Ball is there with Banana Blitz HD, it'll just be hard to turn people onto it unless you're going in with a solo mindset. If you haven't ever experienced monkeys in balls before and plan on coming in as a rogue agent, that budget pricing helps.

The new remaster version of Super Monkey Ball is a good choice to have fun without huge pretensions. Revive old experiences in any platform.

I wanted to like this game, as I am a huge fan of the franchise, but this banana does not pass the smell test.

As fun as its original release, Super Monkey Ball: Banana Blitz HD could have included more extras to justify its remastered relaunch, because Sonic, no matter how cool it is, is not enough.

A disappointing package which fails to showcase the appeal of the classic series. Bad boss fights and bad mini games make this remake hard to recommend.

In the end, Super Monkey Ball Banana Blitz HD will satisfy fans with its lovingly new remade visuals and presentation. While the single-player mode is much more improved thanks to analog controls, the new multiplayer elements are drab and will damper your experience should you want something to play with friends. These are some Super Monkey Balls you should probably play with yourself rather than others

On the one hand, the game has lost its arcade drive and charm, on the other - it's still a good Monkey Ball, albeit not without drawbacks in the form of inappropriate bosses, wacky mini-games, outdated graphics and a little different cartoon style.
