Awesome game!!! I would recommend this game to anyone who like challenges. It can be unforgiving at times but rewarding in return. I love the idea and concept of this game as I hope later on down the track there will be a DLC for more levels and other Mini Games for this, also maybe some extra mods for the ball other than the 3 that came with the game you have too unlock.
The game is challenging either way when using K/B & Mouse or XBOX 360 Controller, but can be played smoothly depending on what works for you.
Overall gameplay, graphics and music I am very content with what they have done. Shame the game has only 7 levels.
Graphics can be distracting and sometimes awkward when you have to move or view around to see where you have to go as objects sometimes block your vision.

Couple of minor glitches I had found while playing this game:
Random points through out the game the ball may either get stuck in corners or wedges.
Sometimes when jumping it doesnt always do it then and there. (Very rarely on odd occassions)
lvl 6 The TNT boxes sometimes get stuck and dont drop when needed too.
lvl 7 The last jump at the end you sometimes get stuck in free fall and forced to restart from the last checkpoint.

With only those minor glitches I have found, I still enjoyed playing this game and will enjoy playing it over again.
Personal rating: 7.5/10

Came into this hoping for a Super Monkey Ball-like experience, but unfortunately I didn't find it (nor have I found it in any game outside of Super Monkey Ball 1 or 2). It plays out more like a platformer where your character is a ball than a real...I'm not sure what you'd call it, but a game that focuses on the the physics, abilities, and limitations of the ball. The physics model of the game game is lacking, level design feels uninspired, and there are many frustration points with long jumps back to checkpoints. To top it all off it doesn't support controllers properly, only giving digital movement to the analog stick. Needless to say, that is the last nail in the coffin of a game in which your character is entirely round. Precision is important.

Jeg vil gerne starte ud med at sige at dette er de bedste 0.99 cent jeg har brugt i hele mit liv. 10/10 masterpeice - cbice.
9/11 - keivano nayebo 2001
Nu betegner jeg jo mig selv som en mester af spectraballs da jeg har gennemført spillet uden at skyde mig selv i hovedet med en gun. Derfor mener jeg at spillet skal være det eneste spil man kan spille i resten af denne jords levetid. Folk skal se at dette er det eneste for dem, ved hjælp af tvang. Knud Dahm udtaler "Jeg elsker næsten spectraballs lige så meget som at jeg elsker julle". Kim Thygsen siger "Oliver har et problem"
Derfor vil jeg gerne give spectraballs en score på et stort 02 til 12. - Tommy

This game was off to a grueling start when I got myself stuck against a wall in the hub world within the first minute (and somehow got a "7 seconds of airtime" achievment while doing so). After restarting the level, all the doors locked themselves for no good reason, forcing me to restart yet again.

Things only went downhill from there. The level design itself was boring, unimaginitive, and generally extremely easy, consisting of platforms made of dated textures suspended in vast amounts of empty space. Almost every level ended in the exact same way (one giant jump ramp to the finish). Most of the challenge came through the glitchy air physics and camera. I frequently lost my jumping ability for no good reason. Even if you do manage to get past it all, there's surpisingly little content for a game with the subtitle "Extended Edition". I finished the game start to finish in about an hour and a half.

In the end, this both looks and feels like a tech demo from the late 90's than a proper game. It seems to be trying to be another Marble Blast or Super Monkey Ball, but it falls short in almost every imaginable way. Just roll right on past this old clunker.
