Mario Power Tennis is the second in the series of New Play Control! titles and will see the much loved Mario Power Tennis from GameCube adapted to offer this great game with all-new controls on Wii. This new game will still allow you to choose from a range of characters from the Mario franchise, and you can then either play regular tennis or tennis-themed minigames. You will play through the Tournament Mode in both Singles and Doubles matches allowing you to unlock a variety of new characters, extra minigames and courts as well as a more challenging Star Tournament.

The new controls allows you to, perform different strokes by flicking the Wii Remote in the corresponding direction, utilising the motion sensitive controls for Wii. A player can now charge up his power shot gauge by waiting and hitting the ball back at the last possible moment. The game will now offer different levels of control types which increase in difficulty appealing to varied levels of gamers: Easy, Medium, Technical, and Difficult.
  • New Play Controls allows you to utilise different strokes, by flicking the Wii Remote
  • Your player will now charge up his power shot gauge by waiting hitting the ball back at the latest possible moment
  • The game offers 4 levels of control - Easy, Medium, Technical and Difficult

 very good game but...

When i first played this game i enjoyed it and it was a bit of a laugh.
A good point about the game is that it has quite a few players that you can select also quite a few courts.
Now the bad points.
The main bad thing is the super-shots it does these by it self and it can get annoying if you just want to play standard tennis. By this i mean it does a supershot every 10-15 secs of gameplay.

I dont see how people can right bad things about this game. It's great it's no ment to be serious and exactly like life. Like all other mario games it's just ment to be fun and for me it is! It's got great features like new players ; special shots for each character and it has new courts and minigames! So i'd say buy this game!

 Mario does tennis!

I played this game with a friend and it was very enjoyable, i like the game having mario characters in it. My only complaint is that it doesn't allow you to play a decent volley, if you're looking for alternative to wii-sports then this is for you but it's still a very good game.

 Like Tennis? Like Mario and Company?

I'm sure everyone has played wii sports tennis and thought they want more control,
I was one of those people and this game didn't let me down,
Untill Motion plus comes out i reckon this has great ball controll,
Graphics look great,so vibrant and smooth,
Characters are as you would expect from the Nintendo world - cute and annoying but dont put you off playing what is overall a great tennis game.
Would have given it more stars if you could play people online and if the characters didnt keep saying annoying little phrases all the time.

 Such a dissapointment

I was really looking forward to this game, as the original Gamecube version was pretty fun and the idea of Wii control mechanics sounded like a great premise for having friends over and playing a more in-depth game than Wii Sports tennis, oh how I was wrong.

For a game that is relying on the gimmick of having new (and better) play controls it sure does fall flat. The controls are not very responsive and fickle about what it classes as a swing. You'll find your self holding the remote down to your waste most of the time waiting for the ball to bounce to you and swinging as hard as you can, but the power of your swing doesn't determine the speed of the ball and you'll find after a few games that your arm will get tired.

The games graphics have been cleaned up and it looks nice and vibrant, it's an easy game to pick up and play but once you start wanting a more technical game you'll start to see how shallow the game really is.

For a relaunch promising new features and game controls Nintendo have really dropped the ball on this one and where Pikmin (and soon to be Pikmin 2 and Metroid Prime) Have lived up to the gimmick Mario Tennis has never felt more like a cash cow.

You'll have fun with this game for 10 minutes but don't expect anything more from it. I traded it in within a week of it being on shelves. I'm just glad I only paid £25 at Play.com rather than £30+ on the high street.
