Can Be Fun, But Has Many Flaws

J.M., Amazon
16 June 2008
  • Summary: First off, if you want this game for the basketball part, then don't buy it. However, if you want Mario, then you might consider buying it. The Bad: Your teammates in this game are completely useless. They never go for the ball and they simply stand there waiting for the ball.

Fun but frustrating

  • Excerpt: I had the same issues with controls when I played the Japanese version. Using the stylus for passing, shooting, and special moves would have been a good idea if the touchpad was more responsive. Unfortunately, I just gave up using the touchpad to maneuver entirely and used the control pad instead.

  • Excerpt: I haven't played this game. But it looks as if Nintendo looks to go through all of the sports. As long as it doesn't get down to beach volley-ball, where Mario is wearing a spedo.

  • Excerpt: when i first heard that mario hoops was going to be on the ds i thought it was going to be great...and it was great however i feel as though it utilizes the stylus a little to much. i found that i was looking at the bottom screen to often because i had to use the stylus for just about every move.

FUN, BUT IT DOESN'T LAST FOREVER.

Amazon

  • Summary: Reviewer:Adriel Rahman This game is very fun as soon as you pick it up but after a while, it gets repetitive. Your teamates know nothing about basketball. They don't help you out in any way. You are the one who has to do everything.

Lovely design, but severely lacking in other elements

  • Summary: Mario has had his fair share of excellent sports-knock-off games, from Mario Kart to Mario Golf. However, there is always a first time for everything, and while this not exactly being a first time, it is a new low.

Mario Hoops: The prettiest brick ever shot

C. Bakehorn, Amazon
26 September 2006
  • Summary: Mario's been the man on the tennis court and golf course, but he's never walked onto the hardwood of one of America's most popular sports: Basketball. Mario Hoops 3-On-3, a game that was interesting developed by Square-Enix, is a beautiful, impressive game on all fronts of presentation, unlockables,...
