Did You Know?

Crazy Credits

After clearing the game, you are placed into a bonus "level" where you try to get as many bananas as you can. Meanwhile, the credits appear in the sky. Then, the letters from the credits actually fall down into the play field at random. You must try and avoid the letters, because if you crash into one, you'll lose bananas. See more »

It's the Super Monkey King!!
23 May 2002 | by Odd_RedeyeSee all my reviews

If you want "graphics" and "serious games" get a PC.

If you want to have a laugh and enjoy yourself get a games console.

Get a Gamecube

Get Super Monkey Ball.

Its got Monkeys in Balls, and it ROCKS! - Get it now, I did, and my friends PS2 hasn't been touched for about 3 days now. Its one of the best multiplayer games i've ever played and even my friend paul who won't touch games usually has been heard shouting "Super Monkey Target - Who wants to play Super Monkey Target with me?". Want to sit in front of the TV bored? Or want to roll monkeys around with your friends - its your choice.

If you wan't to know what will come out best in the console wars, look no further than Super Monkey Ball! - I couldnt rate it higher if I tried!
