Mario Tennis Open

2 September 2013
  • Summary: Getting its start in stereoscopic 3D on the Virtual Boy back in 1995, the Mario Tennis series has returned to its original roots with Mario Tennis Open on the Nintendo 3DS. It's been seven years since we've seen a brand-new Mario Tennis title, with the last new entry launched on the GameBoy Advance back in 2005. Every Mario Tennis game was seemingly better than the last, making the series a fan-favorite out of all the Mario Sports spin-offs.

Mario Tennis Open

Family Friendly Gaming
25 April 2013
  • Excerpt: It takes a big man to step back when they feel they may have been compromised. Our editor in chief wrote the preview for Mario Tennis Open, and Nintendo has been flaking with Family Friendly Gaming in recent months. He decided to hand the review off to me since he felt he was compromised due to the problems FFG has been having with this company.

Mario Tennis Open 3DS Review

21 January 2013
  • Excerpt: Mario Tennis Open will likely disappoint a few Nintendo fans, largely because it's among the more content-lite entries in the series. You can forget about role-playing elements from its handheld predecessors, or the annoying character specific power shots from the console side (happy to see those get the boot).
  • Pros: Super Mario Bros. inspired mini-game, plenty of detailed courts and characters, user-friendly Dynamic View, lots of items to unlock, eye-friendly 3D effects, online multiplayer, download play.
  • Cons: Less content than previous Mario Tennis games, you can only customize your Mii, no way to filter Dynamic View from online multiplayer.

Mario Tennis Open for Nintendo 3DS Review

Gear Diary

Overall 6

Simple game for all ages is best played with others.

  • Summary: Parents need to know that Mario Tennis Open is a family friendly tennis game for Nintendo 3DS with single-player and multiplayer modes. This game depicts tennis as a fun and challenging sport and promotes healthy competitive play among small groups. Online play allows kids to connect with friends and strangers, but does not facilitate communication. Note, though, that players' customizable Mii avatars can be shared in StreetPass mode.

Mario Tennis Open review

24 June 2012
  • Excerpt: Mario and his friends have been trying their fat, cartoony hands at a number of different sports and activities for years, though it’s generally agreed that Camelot Software’s Mario Tennis franchise is near the top. Yet despite its popularity the series skipped over the DS entirely, so it’s no wonder that the buzz surrounding the 3DS iteration, Mario Tennis Open, had an air of excitement since it was first announced.
  • Pros: It's just as fun as it ever was, Single-cart and online multiplayer make it great with friends, Bonus modes are enjoyable and somwhat imaginative
  • Cons: 3D is lackluster and barely noticeable, Lack of singleplayer is crippling, Light on content, in general, mostly due to the previously mentioned lack of singleplayer

Mario Tennis Open (3DS) - Review

10 June 2012
  • Excerpt: I’m glad I got to write gamrReview’s critique of Mario Tennis Open .  That’s because the game brings to light one of the issues I have with the way game reviews are widely perceived.  Lately, many readers view an eight out of ten as the lowest score whereby a game can be considered ‘good.’  I don’t like this trend.
