Summary: I loved the older Mario Tennis games. This one is not as good, but for the only following reasons. 1) it's on the 3DS and playing against a friend is harder since they must have the game and a 3DS or 2DS. 2) It can get a little repetitive.
Nothing like it's predecessors, but still an excellent game.

Summary: Alright, I'll admit it, I've played the Mario Tennis game for GBC, seen the one for GBA, and I can tell y'all right now that this game DOES NOT include a story mode, improvable characters, swappable gear (well, that is only half true), etc.
Summary: I love Mario Tennis, especially for the N64 and GameCube, but this is not as good as those. The major difference is that in the old Mario Tennis it mattered when you swung the racket. If you press the button to swing early or late, you would get different results in terms of ball speed and motion.
