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.
Excerpt: Good controls bad controls, i dont even no anymore. I find the game very addictive. So i dont even see where are the bad controls... I just want to play all do. I find this game just as addictive as Mario Kart DS. Im happy with the game. and i hope you will try it.
Excerpt: all these reviews mention using the "stylis" and that's great and all but as in metroid prime hunters I use my finger and find it to have much better control then then the little stick in my hand which makes me want to drop my ds, and with this the new 3 on 3 hoops is fun
Excerpt: it's not THAT bad! i don't know why everyone is picking on the touch controls; i thought they worked really well. while i agree, after you unlock the characters there isn't a lot of replay value, it sure does work you into a mad frenzy playing it... for a day.
