10i feel people are being far to harsh to this game, don't trust the critics as it seems like they only played it a couple of days. I've had the game over a month now and i'm still playing everyday online, it plays like the n64 game which i loved , i will admit if you don't have online it would get boring really fast , but if your online this one could last you years, the amount of tactics you have to go through to beat the best is serious stuff.
overall if your online 10/10 if your not online and don't have friends to play skip it as the single player is only a load tournaments 5/10.… Expand
8The game itself was rather surprising. It looked decent in previews, but the actual gameplay was pretty good. The most surprising was the graphics to be honest. I hadn't seen the capabilities of the 3DS until this game. Now compared to the previous version (which I was obsessed with to say the least) it didn't really fully live up to it. The power shots was a large improvement, but the removal of specials was disappointing. Most of all was the lack of characters. Removing characters is never a good plan. Although the Personalization was very enjoyable, it made it more fun. The internet gameplay is awful. There is a second or two delay that happens in every game that I can't stand. The mini games were really lacking. I enjoyed the ones in the previous game, and it had a good replay value, but this- was just boring. The tournament was very easy and finishing singles in one day is very possible, unfortunately. The creativity in stages was nice though, I just wish there were more, and day progression like the previous game. Overall:
Mini games 4/10
Internet gameplay 0/10
Replay Value 5/10
Stages 9/10… Expand
Nintendo's latest entry in the mario tennis is quite disappointing. the game is very light on content, i feel that nintendo made the gameplay a little to simplistic for experienced players, but very welcoming no newbies. but overtime the game gets way too repetitive due to the lack of extra game modes.… Expand
2This game is a disgrace to previous Mario Tennis games. It does not deserve the Mario tennis title. I've played all the previous iterations. The best were the GBA and GBC versions. (I haven't forgotten the N64 or GC versions which were great in their own way but this is the handheld version.)
The handheld games had exhibition modes, 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, 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. Don't buy it. If you haven't played the previous games and don't really care, then I would rate this a 6/10. As a fan, the game is a 2/10. It's the tennis game from wii sports with Mario avatars and a new lucky shot element.… Expand
