New Play Control! Mario Power Tennis

 

Nintendo fans who have dabbled in a couple of Wii Sports sessions usually consider a Mario Tennis for Wii, and to satisfy racket folk the Japanese game creator gas brought back the GameCube classic complete with waggle control. When you grasp the...

Mario Power Tennis (Wii) review

 

Wii'll see you on court...

Who would have thought that Wii controls would actually make a game more complicated? Well they do in Mario Tennis: a game that's fun with the controls set to the most basic level but one that's still not as good as in its original release.

Mario Power Tennis - New Play Control!

 

Mario Power Tennis - New Play Control! for Wii Review - Mario Power Tennis will really only be acceptable to gamers who don't know any better - who may well find many of the issues nothing to worry about.

Mario Power Tennis

 

SEGA and Nintendo may have teamed up for such cross-pollination titles as Mario and Sonic at the Olympic Games, but that doesn't stop either side from having their cake and eating it. Case in point: Mario Power Tennis. Mario and chums first started...

Controls work well ; Good 3D graphics ; Play as your fave Mario character ; Unlock extra characters to play with ; Complete tournaments and win the cup

The ball travels too slow ; It's usually really easy to win ; You can't charge up a turbo shot ; Power Shots quickly get old & ineffectual

Mario Power Tennis is very playable but it isn't going to set your tennis world on fire unless you're a Mario completest - and if you are then you will already have the previous ports of this on the Gamecube or Game Boy Advance.

Star Ocean: The Last Hope

 

Three hours. This is the approximate amount of time that Star Ocean: The Last Hope nuzzles players under the smelly armpit of protagonist Edge Maverick. Few game introductions drop players into such a repellent and uncomfortable atmosphere. Ham-fisted...

New Play Control! Mario Power Tennis review for the WII

 

Which way do you swing?

Fun, simple gameplay; Plenty of strange modes; Good multiplayer; Generally strong Wii controls

Hitting your valuables; Not much depth; A bit too easy

You have to hand it to Mario and Co. - they do what they do very well, even if they don't exactly take big risks. Mario Power Tennis is a reliable, fun game that puts some nice, new spin on an old sport. If you can look past its limited depth, you'll...

Mario Power Tennis (Wii) - Gameplanet Review

 

A rehash of the original title from the GameCube, with the only fundamental change being the controller. It's fun but there are better tennis games out there, and the novelty of Mario playing tennis was fun back in the day but its relevance now seems...

Visually appealing, with lots of on-court action. It's tennis but it's not Wimbledon

Unlike most Mario games, there's no plot to bind everything together

Average at best.

Mario Power Tennis Review

 

Nintendo's renewed focus on GameCube classics revitalised to include Wii Remote motion control kicks off with the GameCube party offering, Mario Power Tennis. A fun title for the whole family that unfortunately offers very little in the way of...

Host of classic Nintendo characters; Full Wii Remote functionality; Four-player multiplayer is the game's main strength

Looks dated; No online multiplayer; No depth; Power Moves are basically Cheat Moves; Mini games really do suck

New Play Control! Mario Power Tennis

 

Are tacked-on motion controls an invitation for disaster?

Motion controls make tennis matches more realistic and fun ; It's like Wii Sports Tennis, but with more shot options and you can move ; Multiplayer games are an absolute pleasure

Imprecise controls make mini-games extremely frustrating

There are people who chomp at the bit to see a review from a preferred site before running out and instantly buying it if the score meets a minimum threshold. NWR doesn't seem to be one of those sites. I, like you, don't buy games on launch day and I...
