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.

Mario is truly a poly-talented man. He's done it all. Saving princesses, winning the 150cc Star Cup and snagging a few holes in one are all in some of the earliest pages of his resume. On the Nintendo 64, Nintendo decided to let Mario try his hand at tennis (though the series arguably dates back to the NES title "Tennis"). The result? People loved it! And so they released a Gamecube sequel that added in offensive and defensive power shots as well as gimmick arenas, which was also quite successful. Did Nintendo succeed in bringing this success to the 3DS?

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.

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.

I loved the older Mario Tennis games. This one is not as good, but for the only following reasons. 1) it's on the 3DS and playing against a friend is harder since they must have the game and a 3DS or 2DS. 2) It can get a little repetitive.

I love Mario Tennis, especially for the N64 and GameCube, but this is not as good as those. The major difference is that in the old Mario Tennis it mattered when you swung the racket. If you press the button to swing early or late, you would get different results in terms of ball speed and motion. This made it a pretty good game of skill where you were challenged to hit the button at the exact right moment.

In this Mario Tennis for 3DS, that doesn't matter anymore. Sure, if you swing way too early or late, you will still miss. But as long as you press the button within the correct timing window, you will get the same result. This reduces the game to the level of Simon Says, and it's not nearly as fun in a multiplayer context, which is the only reason to play Mario Tennis.
