  • Summary: This title is superior to the tennis game in Wii Sports in every way. Perhaps Mario Power Tennis is a better candidate for being a free pack-in game, seeing as how it's criminal that Nintendo is charging you for a port of the GameCube Mario Tennis with some so-so motion controls.

  • Conclusion: Regrettably, in the end, the story of New Play Control! Mario Power Tennis is a very sad one. Presumably the entire reason for this game’s existence is to make a great older title more fun and approachable by adding the ability to use motion controls.

  • Conclusion: Concept: ''Hey, I bet people would totally buy a Wii version of Mario Tennis. All we have to do is add some motion controls and we're ready to go!'' Graphics: In the classic Mario sports style (read: slightly archaic).

Mario Power Tennis - New Play Control! Review

VideoGamer.com
9 July 2009
  • Excerpt: We're not against the idea of Nintendo re-releasing some of its classic GameCube games on the Wii, more or less as they were but with new Wii controls, but we were concerned that some games just wouldn't get the care and attention required.
