    Super Monkey Ball was one of the most anticipated apps for the 2.0 app store. When you first start the game it shows off its already amazing graphics.

    when you get to the menu you have these choices. ive really only dug into the main game and options. options really has nothing to offer besides volume. theres no calibration or anything. that disappoints me. once you press on main game you get this screen.

    this has your 4 basic monkey ball characters. nothin special to it. then you get to the world select menu. you only start with the first world. doesnt surprise me.

    then you get the level select. you can only start with easy.

    then after all that you get to the actual game.

    when it started panning across the course, i was surprised by the graphics. they were actually really nice. very well done for this kind of game. but then came the point when i actually saw my little aiai awaiting departure.

    the one thing that you look at most in the game... IS 2D!!!! why?? it has like 6 angles around the monkey and the ball just remains the same. this is one of the only problems i have found with this game. also the controls are a little tough to get used to but they work out nice. another problem i have found with this is that i dont think it can save. i just havent found how to do that. if there is a way please let me know so i can put it in here. but from what i saw theres no way.

    so overall, i give Super Monkey Ball a 4.5/5 star rating. its very well put together. it only has a few bugs to work out but im sure they will be fixed in upcoming updates. I do highly recommend this game.

    Yeah it does take time to get used to but I figured out how to save. You have to beat that world in easy/hard mode for it to save no matter how far you actually get in the main game. Then you can just press home at the main screen. I don't know if completing a level in practice mode counts towards the main game because that would be cool.

    ehh i would give it a 3.5/5. This was the game that i upgraded to 2.0 for! When i finally ran it on my ipod today i was disapointed. Sure, the graphics are extremely amazing! But, the controlls suck and there is no callibration wizard. I expected its release to be a bit more professional. The game is fun but hard to get used to.

    yes im hoping that they include calibration in the next update cause normally when i play my ipod is angled at like 45 degrees. monkey ball makes you play at about 5 or 10
