Sega and developer Amusement Vision return with a spirited sequel in Super Monkey Ball 2. Think Marble Madness with the twist that you control the environment instead of the marble, tilting the levels to guide the monkey ball to the finish line. The follow-up adheres to the play style and mechanics of the original offering, but adds an overwhelming supply of new single-player levels, expands upon the sizeable multiplayer mini-games already featured with several fantastic entries, and updates the graphic look so that environments are flashier and more animated. As a single-player game SMB2 is more difficult and satisfyingly challenging, but its multiplayer mode makes it the perfect party game for all ages.
With so many so-called party games out there trying so hard to create a frenetic multiplayer experience, it's almost amazing how Super Monkey Ball 2 makes it all seem so effortless and manages to include a compelling single-player game to boot.
The mini-games are deep and complex, and require strategy, not endless button-mashing. So to me, this is much more than a party game.
With inspired, intuitive controls to boot and 150 challenging new levels that are more difficult -- sometimes frustratingly so, the single-player mode alone is worth the purchase.
