Sega Superstars Tennis takes the full console version and brings it down to the smaller DS level. This is a challenge for the tennis part - but does quite nicely in the minigames area.

On the tennis side, it's hard to really fault the game. The DS only gives you little arrow buttons to move, unlike the more full joystick controls of a console. It's just hard to play an active sports game with arrows. The game does the best it can, and the graphics are nice, with the different characters and courts. They do the best they can with the system.

You do lose a lot of the "coolness" of the console version, where there is a ton of detail and sound to immerse you in the different worlds. So between the graphics and the controls, I would definitely be playing the tennis part on the main console, not the DS. There are enough other fun DS games to play while I'm traveling, to not have to try to suffer through the tennis game in here.

That being said, I really enjoy some of the mini-games in the set. Just like the console version has a variety of themed mini-games, you get a *different* set of minigames here on the DS. You get Jet Set Radio, ChuChu Rocket!, Curien Mansion, PuyoPop Fever, Virtua Squad, Super Monkeyball, Space Harrier and Sonic.

So in PuyoPop you are hitting tennis balls into vertical piles of PuyoPops, trying to clear them. In Space Harrier you are running along the ground, dodging enemies and trying to hit them with your tennis balls. In ChuChu Rocket you are trying to hit arrows with your tennis balls, aiming the little ChuChus towards the rocket.

Some of the games are similar to the console version - but where on the console they are sidelines to the main tennis game, here on the DS they really do wonderfully with the DS format.

I didn't really know what to expect from Sega Superstars Tennis for DS. But once I began playing it, I was really liking the experience, as it was hardly any different from the console versions. Sure, there are some minor changes here and there, but it's pretty much Sega Superstars Tennis on the go! And no changes harmed the gameplay, either.

Sure, there's your average Single and Multiplayer tennis matches and randomly arranged tournaments, but what makes the game truly shine out from other tennis video games is the minigame collection inside.

The minigames are the highlights, mainly because that's what the game lives on top of. You get games based off of Sonic, Jet Set Radio, Super Monkey Ball, Virtua Squad (aka Virtua Cop), Space Harrier, etc. The games are actually pretty faithful, considering the tennis-like gameplay.

Space Harrier is a lot like the arcade classic itself: You shoot off enemies, and eventually, a dragon comes as a little boss.

Virtua Squad is also a lot like its original version. You shoot down the cardboard bad guys that pop up.

Puyo Pop Fever is originally a puzzle game, but whatever blob you hit pops, so there's nothing to strategic you must learn. BUT there's a catch still: If you don't pop them too soon, they will turn into stone.

Sonic the Hedgehog is Sonic at its most basic: You run around collecting rings while dodging robots' projectiles. There are also computer monitors to break for shields or more rings, but that's all there is to it.

Of course, there are more games, but I'm just giving you an idea of what a few of these are like.

My daughter loves it. She's 6 yrs old and was able to learn it in a couple weeks! It's very challenging, but fun.
