Super Monkey Ball – Review

When I first heard about Super Monkey Ball, I was looking forward to a couple of other high-profile GameCube titles, like Star Wars: Rogue Leader and Super Smash Bros. Melee. Super Monkey Ball had nearly slipped under my radar screen since the arcade game from which this game is ported never saw the light of day outside of Japan, and I knew very little about it.

According to ESRB, this game contains: Mild Violence

Super Monkey Ball

Game Description: In Super Monkey Ball, you're in control of a cute little monkey trapped inside a transparent ball. The objective of the game is deceptively simple: tilt the floor with your analog stick so that your monkey ball rolls towards the goal. Your success is all in the thumb: the more you tilt, the faster the ball rolls. Just be sure not to fall off the edges! You can play with up to four others to see who can master the tilt and get their monkeys to the finish line ahead of the pack.

Super Monkey Ball – Second Opinion

While I agree with Peters review for the most part, I wouldnt say that the barrel of monkeys was completely full. I had to knock a few points off, partially because I dont think monkeys are intrinsically entertaining, and mainly because I found the games technical shortfalls were serious enough to detract from my overall enjoyment.

Oddworld: Munch's Oddysee

Game Description: The power-packing Xbox hardware delivers the third Oddworld title in one of the most brilliantly realized settings to grace any gaming system. Blending unique gameplay, humorous characters and interactions, and the aforementioned graphics, Munch's Oddysee simply feels unlike any other game in the 2001 console gaming lineup. Players control two characters in the game: Munch, a wheelchair-bound hero, and Abe, a character some gamers will recognize from previous Oddworld games. Their goal is to find and free the Mudokon queen, keeper of the remaining eggs of an endangered species.

Oddworld: Munch's Oddysee – Second Opinion

I really had high hopes for Munch's Oddysee, as I feel that the Oddworld series is one of the most unique and beautifully realized game concepts of the past few years.

Oddworld: Munch's Oddysee – Review

Innovation is not the end-all and be-all that turns dirt into gold. A great example of this is Oddworld: Munchs Oddysee, a game that combines its own original, undercooked ideas with redundant elements culled from many different genres to form an innovative, uneven, tedious mess.

According to ESRB, this game contains: Comic Mischief, Violence

Chu Chu Rocket! (Game Boy Advance)

Game Description: Take a trip to outer space with some very hungry cats and some very scared mice. You control a pack of rodents, placing arrows and other directional information on the floor of each level in order to help steer your friends away from danger. In a race against the clock, you'll have to move faster and faster as the game progresses. Full of addicting gameplay, Chu Chu Rocket! is a well-detailed test of your reflexes—not to mention a one-of-a-kind classic straight from Japan.
