2.0 out of 5 stars Nothing like the previous Mario Tennis games. April 26, 2013
By Joe
Fun: 3.0 out of 5 stars   
It don't think this game should even be called a Mario tennis game. This game is a shame to previous Mario Tennis games. I've played all the previous iterations. The best imo were the GBA and GBC versions. (I haven't forgotten the N64 or GC versions which were great in their own way but I'm comparing the handheld versions.)

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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great sports game for the 3DS May 29, 2012
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
As soon as there is a new game that comes out my daughter reads about if from Club Nintendo emails. I saw the day this game was released Toys r us was having a buy one get one 40% off so I jumped on the chance to get another 3DS game for her. She loves it. She has found 4 of the released online unlock able extras through club Nintendo. She says the game is fun not too hard and it doesn't get her sick. There was one game that she played on her 3DS that she actually made her self dizzy because the controls were hard to use. I tried this game too the graphics are really good.

5.0 out of 5 stars They Did It Right May 23, 2012
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Now, with some Mario games they tend to become annoying and they try to do too much with what worked. ie, Super Smash Bros was great, but they started adding power moves and special crap in Brawl, which took away from the classic game. Super Mario Strikers has some weird power-ups. Point is: too many power ups and special moves, not as much fun. This game stuck to its roots, but changed in a way that works.

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.

3.0 out of 5 stars Complete Review Ahead! August 30, 2014
Is this the 3DS deal breaker you've all been waiting for? Read on to find out!

Mario Tennis Open is a simple game. It's basically a tennis game with Super Mario characters in it such as Mario, Luigi, Peach, Yoshi, Bowser, etc. It also features different courses based on the Super Mario series as well. Although, these don't really separate it from a traditional tennis game unfortunately.

Each character has a different skill, making each character unique in their own way. You can choose to use your own Mii character to play in tennis matches too, but they don't have any unique powers or advantages over other characters. The only way to customize them and make them "better" are to go to the shop and purchase gear. You can purchase gear from the shop after being awarded coins from playing each game mode. You can receive costumes too, but these are only obtained by fulfilling certain objectives.

You can play multiplayer either online or locally, which allows four people to play simultaneously on their own individual 3DS'. If you have StreetPass enabled and you pass someone that also has StreetPass enabled, you can play against a computer that mimics the play style of that other person (as long as that other person actually has the game).

There isn't much to say about this game, but I wish there was more to it. There is the main mode that puts you in a tournament against other computers with the goal being for you to finish at the top. There is also a couple little game modes like hitting the tennis balls spit by the black Piranha Plants and hitting the ball through golden rings, but that's it. What I don't like is the obsessive "grinding" (as I'll call it) that you have to in order to fully complete this game.
