Super Monkey Ball is a 3-D racing game featuring monkeys inside transparent balls that race on suspended tracks. This makes getting around a bit of a challenge--go too fast in one direction and you can send your monkey sailing off the edge and into the abyss (accompanied by a sad wail on its way down).

Super Monkey Ball is all about the racing, the core component of the game's GameCube predecessor. But the mini-games and multiplayer games that make the GameCube game fun when you're having a party are all absent--something for Sega to work on for the next installment, for sure.--Peter Cohen
