The handheld games had exhibition modes, a story mode, and bunch of mini-games. The most fun was the long story mode. You went to a tennis academy and started out as a noob. As you worked your way up the ranks you leveled up and could decide what stats you wanted to improve. All of that is gone in this game. I mean seriously, even the GC version had a story.
There is pretty much only one mode in this game, exhibition. This is a Mario cart version of tennis. It's boring and I'm very disappointed. They also added some stupid chance shots which takes all the skill and fun away from the game. Doesn't matter what character you use, they are all generic now. You win by luck. This is a just a cash grab and cheap way to use the 3D feature of the 3DS. No story mode, no academy, no stats, no building your own character, no world to explore with characters to talk to and secrets to unlock. It gets boring really fast since you have nothing to keep you going.
Like I said, I'm very disappointed with this game. This is just my opinion though since I loved the previous tennis games. This review is for everyone who is wondering about buying it for these elements. If you haven't played the previous games and don't really care for these missing elements, then I would rate this a 6/10. As a fan, the game is a 2/10. Newcomers will surely enjoy the gameplay but once you have tried the other versions you will understand the potential this game had.
Hopefully one day we will get a true sequel where you return to the Royal Tennis Academy.
My first impressions of the game on launch day were that the game seemed sloppily thrown together - and that impression still resonates with me. The character select screen in particualr seems very lazy. Instead of the usual board of characters, we get a scroll through list, and the characters even seen out of order.
The controls are simple, and work fine. You move your character with the slide pad, and control shots with the buttons. You still have the same options you always have plus one need shot type. In addition to the ever present lob (A), slice (B), and the various options that come through their combination, you have smash shots (Y). Smash shots are fast, and straight. This game gets rid of the power shots introduced in Mario Power Tennis, and instead uses a system referred to a "Chance Shots". At random times, or if certain requirements are met, a small circle on the field will glow a particular color. The colors are coded along side the shot types, and using the correct shot type while in the circle will use the chance shot. For example, if there is a blue chance shot, and you slice the ball (B), the result is a super charged shot that curves outside the field and back into it.Read more ›
It's more skillfull than other Mario games. You learn what works against what moves, what buttons to press without thinking, and some technical advantages. But overall, everyone is equal and the game doesn't try to do too much.
There are only a few tournaments, so if you like only one character then you won't play as much, and won't have as much fun. But if you try to play all tournaments with every character, it'll be fun. Also, you play the minigames and if that's not for you, again you're missing out on something. Other than that, there isn't much. Online is very jump-in and play, then leave, then play another. So there's not much to that other than some increased difficulty.
Local multiplayer, which I'm sure not everyone has played yet, is the best. I have played my friends who have 3ds or the game multiple times, and playing each other is fun, so is playing doubles on the same team as them. Download play is great, so both people don't need to buy it (but i'm sure if they have a 3ds they will be convinced to get it anyway). You can also play some mini-games with them, which I'm sure is fun for a bit.
Graphics are good, and 3d isn't overwhelming nor does it try to be. it's there for depth and making it look nice, not trying to overdo it. Even 2d is fine, but i feel like it's missing something. It's all preference.
Controls are great.Read more ›

Any Mario games are good but Mario tennis is one of my favoritesPublished 3 months ago by Amazon Customer
I miss the rpg aspect of this game. The new style of play where you hold up your system and move around like you're viewing the play is neat.Published 4 months ago by CBranch
