Super Monkey Ball 2 stars AiAi, a monkey with supernatural ball-forming powers, and his quest to save his wife MeeMee from the evil Dr. Bad Boon by collecting bananas in a maze. This ain’t no Shakespeare, folks.
Art: This game is pretty old (circa Gamecube 2002) so there’s not much to look at here. If you like Dole bananas, you are in for a treat.
Gameplay: You’re a monkey. In a ball. That rolls to collect bananas. This gets devilishly hard somehow.
Replayability: Medium. It’s cute and fairly tough, and the party mode is fun.
Would I recommend? I guess? Depends on the audience really. This was definitely not my favorite game but it wasn’t the worst I’ve played (*cough cough* Hatoful Boyfriend *cough cough*). If you want something ridiculously mindless then you’ve come to the right place – but in all reality I’d pick Katamari over this anyday.
Have a recommendation? Leave a video game you'd like me to review in the comments section with the tag #whiteboard and if I haven't tried it before I'll give it a try!
