Decent Game If You have a Balance Board

I thought the game was pretty decent IF YOU HAVE THE BALANCE BOARD. It took me a while to get used to the controls, but here is a helpful tip I found if you have trouble turning.

- Turning is pretty difficult because when you turn by leaning toward a direction on the balance board, you have to adjust for the rotating camera.
--- A better way to turn is to use the D-Pad on the Wii Remote to rotate the camera while you lean forward and backward on the balance board to control the speed. Rotating the camera will change the direction of the ball if you continue to lean forward.

It takes a little while to get used to, but this control is A LOT Better, and I could actually finish a lot of the levels! The same rule applies if you use just the wii remote.

I also thought the bowling was pretty fun. I had some friends over, and we played the Xorb bowling, and it was pretty exciting once i got used to it.

OVERALL, I don't think the game is as bad as some of the other reviewers made it out to be, but the game designer should have spent more time fixing some of the flaws in the game.

Decent game, just hard to control

Would be more fun if there was a slower moving / beginner version. Otherwise good graphics, fun if you are patient, looks good on a big projector screen

Poor Controlls

The Kororinpa marble series in much better in my opinion. This game is alright a little at a time, but it does get annoying after a while because to me the controls aren't sensitive enough to properly take full control of your marble. What I do like about this game compared to Kororinpa is the fact you aren't turning the board to roll your marble, you actually control the marble. Definately worthy of a try!
