Summary: After reading the Mario Hoops 3-On-3 reviews, my husband and I weren't so sure we'd like the game. Well, we LOVED this game! That just proves you can read reviews for gameplay and what the game is all about, but you are the only person who can judge. This game was a blast, and it's very fun beating my hubby. :P The multiplayer with 2 people can be on one game cartridge, but you can't play an actual basketball game unless you both have the game cartridge.
