Has the typical flaws of Mario sports titles, but fun and unique game nonetheless

Summary: Anyone who played Super Mario RPG: Legend of the Seven Stars knows that Nintendo/Square Enix collaborations can result in absolutely amazing games. Unfortunately, there haven't been too many since then, but Square Enix reunites with Nintendo once again for the Nintendo DS game, Mario Hoops 3-On-3.
Summary: I purchased this game for my son and he really loves it. He and his sister can connect with their DS systems and play one another. It was a great compliment to her Princess Peach game as well. Both have provided hours of entertainment.
Summary: Nintendo's longtime plumber mascot has had his share of whacky sports games for a while now with the Gamecube, and Mario Hoops 3 on 3 finds Mario gracing the hardwood on the DS. The first thing you'll notice is that the game uses an interesting control scheme.
Summary: Ok, overall, this is a great game. The only problem I've had with it so far is that my character sometimes throws the ball in a different direction when I want him/her to throw it to another teammate.
