Nintendo Wii - Super Monkey Ball Banana Blitz - First Impressions

Super Monkey Ball Banana Blitz is my first Nintendo Wii game purchase. I have been playing Wii Sports for the last several weeks and have managed to obtain 'Pro' status in most of the games. I decided to pick up a Nintendo Wii specific game, rather than the general releases that are available for other consoles.

For that reason, I picked up both Super Monkey Ball Banana Blitz and Rayman Raving Rabids at the same time. There are very similar games, but I started with the Super Monkey Ball game first.

First impressions include:

  • Great party game. This game is great for when you have two or more people playing, and especially for large groups. The games are short and a lot of people can join in over a short period of time.
  • Great selection of mini-games. There is a great selection of mini-games. My favorites include the Hammer Throw, Frisbee Golf, Darts, and Hurdles. Be careful with the hammer throw, you will be sure to have a sore shoulder in the morning!
  • Individual game. I have not had a chance to get into these. Apparently a lot of puzzle levels and new bosses, but has not appealed to me yet.

I plan on spending more time with Super Monkey Ball Banana Blitz and comparing it heads up against Rayman Raving Rabids soon!
