  • 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.

Showing Mario some Love </cheesy tennis pun>

  • 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.
  • Pros: Great fun, Multiplayer is amazing
  • Cons: Can be frustrating, more inside .  Too easy?

Mario Power Tennis, Ace not Out!

Richy_P, Ciao
23 February 2006
  • 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.
  • Pros: Excellent Multiplayer,Good Flowing gameplay, Excellent Graphics, easy controls
  • Cons: Power Shots, A little easy

Mario Power Tennis (GameCube)

  • 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...
  • Pros: fun, best tennis game

Another Nintendo Classic

Lipe, Ciao

  • 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.

Tennis in a mana of speaking

VGDanny, Ciao

  • 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.

The Let-down

George Wallington "Wallys Wellies", amazon.co.uk
29 April 2005
  • 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...

17 April 2005
  • 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.
  • Pros: Better Courts !  Better Characters !  Better EVERYTHING !
  • Cons: NONE WHAT SO EVER !

Better Get In Gear Mario - Its Tennis Time!

DBZKing, Ciao
17 April 2005
  • 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.
  • Pros: Graphics  |  Characters  |  Game Play
  • Cons: Nothing
