Mario Tennis Open: Nintendo 3DS Game Review

Mario Tennis Open: Nintendo 3DS Game Review - Reviewed by Kidzworld on Jun 08, 2012
( Rating: 4 Star Rating)

Mario and his friends are back on the courts where love means nothing! Read our game review for all the info!

Once again, the cast of Mushroom Kingdom characters have decided to try their luck with the racquet in Mario Tennis Open for the Nintendo 3DS. Overall, the game is simple and easy to play, but it is decently fun as long as you have a friend to enjoy it with!

Tennis with a Video Game Twist

At its core, Mario Tennis Open is a basic tennis simulation. You push the buttons or touch the screen when the ball gets close to you. Like Tennis in Wii Sports, it is mostly about timing. However, there is one important mechanism to note: the Chance Shot. Every now and then, a colored panel will appear on the ground. If you can reach that spot and perform the correct move, you will get a powerful shot!

Alongside the classic Singles and Doubles tournament, you can also play various mini-games to improve your play. You can earn coins that can buy items for your Mii. Equip different clothing and rackets to your Mii to change its stats!

Love Means Nothing

In the end, Mario Tennis Open is all about tennis. It can be pretty easy to get bored of it all when you have to grind your way through eight matches of Singles and then Doubles. When facing the harder computer players, it all comes down to waiting for the Chance Shots, which can get boring fast. You can play with friends, however, and these games are more interesting, especially when Chance Shots aren't 100%. You can also play co-op in Doubles if you want! Overall, the game is fine if you enjoy Mario and/or tennis. However, it is easy to get bored of this game quickly, so it may be better as a rental.

(Ship name: Star-Spider) This child is a bringer of good throughout the world, wearing a spandex costume looking like a normal super-hero's, but includes a fashionable tutu and pink material. The web that she shoots out of her hand hand be melded into any shape they want with a spoken spell, depending on the situation and amount of web they have available. If she gets her hand on her mother's wand, this child can be quite a force to be reckoned with: she has much more natural talent than her mother but much, much less control, and can cause massive amounts of collateral damage if she is not kept in check. She has an optimistic look on life and a perky attitude that can sometimes be annoying, but can become dead serious in the face of danger and is perfectly tuned for the life of a vigilante, no matter how much the villains laugh when they first see her. Next ship: Bill Cipher x Dipper Pines (Bill-Dip)
