Summary: Mario Power Tennis With Mario Power Tennis, Nintendo and developers Camelot prove once again that games don’t need to be ultra realistic or violent to be highly entertaining. Mass murder? Not so much. Exploding rainbow tennis balls with mad ghosts and ten foot racquets? Maybe... There are over 15 playable characters, all the way from Mario and Luigi to Donkey Kong, each with their own set of abilities on the court.
Summary: Mario has come in tennis now here's the sidepoint *cool tennis levels to practice with cpu or friends *has some mini-games to master I guess they fun *lots of charaters in the Mario world *the music is just awesome Badside's is *the slow power shots which all you can't skip them makes the cpu use a lot if on makes the game dull and boring *pulling off how to lob balls really high is hard to do pressing A, B I find that it don't really help to do that and it tells you to...
Excerpt: In April of this year, I decided that the hot weather was bringing with it an opportunity: I was going to get some sport under my belt. About two days later, I left a top games retailer with a copy of Mario Tennis for Gamecube, unaware that this would constitute my entire efforts over the summer months.
Excerpt: OK excuse the cheesy title but i like puns! Mario Power Tennis, is the sequel to the nearly flawless Mario Tennis on the N64, this means that Nintendo had to give it some new aspects and gameplay to match the N64 game let alone surpass it. They came up with the Power Shot; by pressing either the X or Y buttons you could perform a defensive or offensive shot. This was a big mistake.
Excerpt: Mario Power Tennis is a fantastic example of Nintendo in top form. Here's an offering with brightly colored visuals and cheery music. It is, in a word, adorable. But under this gingerbread exterior lies a deep and challenging game of tennis. It certainly takes some liberties with the sport--because the last time we checked, you weren't allowed to bring giant hammers or jetpacks onto the court--but these twists definitely keep things interesting and are intrinsic to the...
Excerpt: Any Nintendo 64 owner will no doubt have heard of, the now, legendary Mario Tennis. With what was perhaps the greatest tennis game ever made in their hands, there was no doubt that Nintendo would release a sequel, and now it's here. This game has a lot to live up to and thankfully it does. With any tennis game, the controls are an integral part and Mario Power Tennis happily keeps the same simple controls and smooth movement from the original.
Excerpt: Mario Power Tennis, just recently purchased this game for around £20 odd, and thought it was very good. I am pretty new to the newer mario games as I'm use to the old retro ones like Mario Allstars and Super Mario World. As I was saying, recently purchased this, and I have heard so many good things about this game, so I stuck it in my Gamecube console straight away, and gave it a whirl. I watched the opening movie which I found was funny, like Nintendo do.
Summary: Being a big fan of the original on the N64 i would have expected this to be amazing. Oh how i was wrong. The game is TERRIBLY slow. Character movement is sluggish at best and shot placement is non-existent. No matter how hard you try your character will tap the ball very slowly down the centre of the court and unless you're playing against a human player with awful reactions you will NEVER see an ace. Now the power shots...
Excerpt: Anyone who has played Mario tennis forN64 or GB will remember that it was the best tennis game ever! Now they've gone one step futher making it that little bit more Mario! This time there are more characters (e.g. Bowser Jr.) and more than just two secret characters (Hint. If you've played Sunshine remember the big boss which got hot-tempered when stomped on?). The courts are much much more improved this time.
Excerpt: This is a review on a remake of a classic Super Mario game called Mario Power Tennis. The original version of this game was made for the Nintendo 64, called Mario Tennis, but the newer / better version for the Game Cube is far better, and much more enhanced. Features ******* This game is different to the original version of Mario Tennis with all these new features. You get to do new moves, like power moves, and defensive moves.
