Super Monkey Ball 2 continues the rolling exploits of four small monkeys placed inside giant transparent spheres as they are guided across a series of hazard-filled levels. The single-player game offers 150 boards to conquer with one of the four monkeys from the original: AiAi, MeeMee, GonGon, and Baby. A new villain named Dr. Bad Boon has stolen the world's bananas in attempt to starve the monkeys, so players begin the adventure on a quest to reclaim their food supply.
Each themed world offers a series of 10 progressively challenging levels, which can be played in any order. Six new sports-related mini-games are included for multiplayer action in addition to enhanced versions of those found in the original. Up to four players can gather around to partake in Monkey Boat Race, Monkey Tennis, Monkey Baseball, Monkey Soccer, Monkey Dogfight, and Monkey Shot.
Monkey Boat Race involves paddling down a river in a kayak, alternating strokes using the controller's shoulder buttons. Monkey Tennis has players trying to return as many serves as possible, while Monkey Baseball consists of hitting monkeys over the stadium's fence to score points. Monkey Soccer features two teams competing on a smaller field. The remaining two games are shooters: Monkey Dogfight is an aerial battle, while Monkey Shot involves blasting items while traveling along a predefined route. ~ Scott Alan Marriott, All Game Guide
