Review For the original launch of the Nintendo Wii, SEGA was right there with a version of its popular Super Monkey Ball series on the motion-controlled console. Banana Blitz took the established "roll the monkey in the ball around the maze" concept and applied tight tilt control that fit the design. Super Money Ball: Step & Roll takes it one step further -- along with the same Wii remote controls, you can choose to hop onto the Wii Fit balance board and shift your weight to maneuver around the courses. Beyond this added control, Step & Roll doesn't do anything particularly new for the franchise except clean up a few rough spots in presentation and introduce new mini-games outside of the main level progression...The Monkey Ball series is a game design where you simply try and maneuver your ball-with-monkey through a series of course challenges, trying to get him to each level's goal in the allotted time and without falling off the edge of the course. Along the way you can collect bananas which will increase your stock of lives, useful for when you get to particularly difficult courses that are next to impossible to roll around without plummeting through a gap or over the side...Super Monkey Ball games have always segmented their designs between the main rolling challenge and a grouping of mini-games, and that's no different here. And just like in previous Super Monkey Ball games only a handful are worth your time. There isn't a single new addition that I liked -- the only games that I kept coming back to were variations of the mini-games in previous Super Monkey Ball titles. Monkey Target, where you fly your monkey through hoops before landing on a platform in the middle of the ocean, and Monkey Race, a Mario Kart-like run, are the two champs of the 17 mini-game collection. I miss Monkey Golf and Monkey Bowling...Super Monkey Ball: Step & Roll, like the previous Super Monkey Ball: Banana Blitz, is a fun ball-rolling design with a nice stack of challenges and a hit-or-miss pile of mini-games. There are some neat inclusions like the Super Mario Galaxy-like co-op mode where other players can shoot obstacles out of the players' way. The added balance board support wasn't that much of a selling point for me -- on paper it sounds like a match made in heaven but in practice it's just a great big load of frustration. Skip the balance board support and you'll have a good time.
