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).
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.
Excerpt: Nintendo seems really focused on giving their target base, the casual gamer, a chance to experience a lot of what they have been, and what they currently are. In terms of what they have been, they are re-releasing older games onto the Wii that were previously on the GameCube.
Summary: Back when Mario made his first appearance as the referee in Tennis on the original Nintendo Entertainment System, no one knew how prolific a sporting career Nintendo’s red capped mascot would enjoy.
Summary: The keys to winning a tennis match in the real world are fast footwork, consistency and a wicked backhand. Enter the realm of Mario Power Tennis, exclusively for Nintendo GameCube, and the secret to winning includes Power Shots like Mario's Iron Hammer, Luigi's Squeaky Mallet and Peach's Super Peach...
