It is a very good game. It has 3 game modes on it. One of them is monkey fight. It is where you try and get the most fruits. Then there is racing on it too. Then there a game mode just to go through levels.But I would rent it if I where you.
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.
This game has excellent effects, but prepare for vertigo because it will make your head spin like a roller coaster! If you're not into that kind of thing, the game is best played with the 3D slider at 1/4 to 1/2 of the way up. I beat this game in under 2 hours. It was fun, but there's very little replay value. In the "Monkey Fight" minigame, the object is to gather more bananas than your opponent. The game is something like a cross between Super Smash Bros. and Sonic in that the level looks like the side-scroll-style levels in SSB, and if you get hit, you lose bananas like you lose rings in Sonic. Unfortunately, unlike SSB and Sonic, the Monkey Fight minigame isn't much fun, and it gets old fast. Then there's the Mario Kart racing game--because seriously. It's just Mario Kart with different graphics, but then, Mario Kart was a good game! The Super Monkey Ball racing minigame is cool too. Overall, Super Monkey Ball 3D is a pretty fun game. It's not worth buying at $40, but it's definitely worth a playthrough!
