    The Mario sports titles have always been a mixed bag in terms of quality but Mario Power Tennis certainly amongst the best. Allowing up to four players to take the court as a range of characters from previous Mario games, each with their own unique style, Power Tennis is sure to provide most gamers with hours of multiplayer fun. Just ensure to turn off the special shots as these are far too powerful and completely unbalance the game. Collapse

    While character imbalance when it comes to power moves can be very jarring and frustrating gameplay element, the core of the game is still good and it is a decent addition to the Mario sports series.

  1. 9 / 8 / 9 / 8 - 34 gold [Oct 2004]
  2. MPT may not reinvent the game, but it definitely whacks it up enough to warrant a revisit. [Jan 2005, p.120]
  3. Compared to "Virtua Tennis," the undisputed king of the tennis franchises around here, Mario Power Tennis is a bit fuzzier and more forgiving in every respect, but, unless you turn them off, the power shots shift the dynamic in quite a different direction.
