I have always been a big fan of monkey ball games. We have all of them up to the wii one. I'm glad that we rented it before we tried it because i will for sure not be buying it. We thought that it was cool using the balance board for the main game but they took off some of the mini games that made us fall in love with monkey ball in the first place. Monkey fight for example. The first time we played this on game cube years ago. I laughed til i peed my pants! How could you take a mini game like that off.
