Proceed with Caution....

First and foremost there is one big problem with renting Super Monkeyball 3D. For whatever reason Sega didn't include ANY way of erasing data for this game. So needless to say when you get this game, most likely ALL of the levels and collectibles will be unlocked already. Now for me thats a big problem, because I like to start a new game with a new file.

I suppose if that doesn't bother you, and you like monkey ball go, right on ahead.

But if you're a new comer, like myself, you should probably try something else.

Another one of the Super Monkey Ball games brings disgrace to the series. This game would not be suggested to any of the Monkey Ball Trainees. This game is easy to master, which would draw newbies to it, but sadly it is too easy. This game can be completed in less than an hour. There are 3 Hard points in the game.

1. Special bananas. They sound easy to get, but they are really tough. There is one for each world. It could take longer than couple minutes to get these.

2. Monkey Fight. It adds a new suprise to the game, but it is very poor. If you have ever heard of Super Smash Bros. Brawl, and love it, this will be a major downgrade.

3. Monkey Kart. Two difficult, but important, abilities. Steering, and Picking up items. Unlike the Mario Kart series, the tracks are almost completely flat, and have no intrest.

The #1 problem for Monkey ballers, New and Old, is the fact that there is absolutely NO way to delete data. To wrap it all up, here are the bad facts: Bad 3D graphics, Monkey Kart, Monkey Fight, Too easy, no way to delete data, and ripping of Nintendo's games. If you are a "OMG SUPER MONKEY BALL ROCKS!" freak then get this. Just note that you are renting a completed game. SEGA is doing two things: Either freaking out that they forgot to put a DELETE DATA button on the game, or forgetting to put a way to delete data on the upcoming game Sonic Generations.

Sorry for how long this is. Get back to gaming! Just not this game...
