For starters - the options have been stripped when selecting a quick game. You have to go into a fiddly menu and eliminate settings in order to get your preferred court or game length.
The game length itself is very short - even the freeplay. There is little to no reward for playing any of the "cups" in tournament mode - and in online mode, there is little in the way of ensuring your online rival matches your skill setting (beginners go up against experts in online games - making the game extremely one sided, particularly when there is lagging glitches discovered by the experts). Everyone also selects Bowser Junior - because he has a clear defense advantage, making some online games literally being up against hundreds of bowser jnrs.
The music is also unremarkable - and youll soon be switching it off after a while. Even the themed courts dont take advantage of any character themes.
FInally, unlike the previous Mario Tennis games - there are no proper cutscenes, and the story mode is heavy text dependent - and playing a predictable quick story.
The basic tennis play of the game is fantastic - its a shame they dropped the ball on everything else.
Content: The game is filled with a good number of content! The character roster is huge, ranging from the beloved characters we already know like Mario, Luigi, Princess Peach, Yoshi, Bowser, and more! There are also even more wild additions such as Chain Chomp, Blooper, Pauline, and Fire Piranha Plant! There are a few different stages to play Tennis on, such as a grassy field, a volcanic court, desert area, and the classic stadium that can have its ground customized in order to change up gameplay, with certain stadium grounds having faster ball speed, higher bounce, etc.. For fans of single player, there is a interesting story mode adventure where Mario goes on a Tennis adventure to save his brother from a corrupted tennis racket that causes lots of trouble. The story mode is full of challenges and boss battles that utilize tennis controls. In addition to that, there are side modes that you can play with your friends, such as a ring mode where you hit the ball inside scoring rings to get the highest score possible. Some of these modes allow you to unlock special in game costumes for some characters, like colored Yoshis, Overalls Mario, Tennis outfit Toad, etc.. Feeling competitive? Then try out the tournament mode! There's plenty to do, both online, and offline.
Gameplay: The gameplay is really engaging and fun. As it is a Mario sports game, it's a bit more wild than regular Tennis. You press different combinations of buttons to perform different types of shots, and you're even given the ability to slow down time and use far reach shots in order to hit the ball back at your opponent for some real tough gameplay! The controls can be a bit off if it's your first time playing, but eventually you will get used to it. There are in game instructions.
Graphics: The game is visually stunning. The characters look amazing, and the scenery is absolutely gorgeous. Not much else to say!
Overall, really great game! Definitely a fun game for multiplayer as well as single player. You might be more of a fan of realistic tennis games, but I would still give it a shot. It's still tennis, but.. Mario! It's really fun and enjoyable. There are a few things that I can kinda criticize, such as $60 is kind of too expensive for a game like this. Also there's a few things you can't configure such as how many sets you can play in a session.
Other than that, it's a solid title and I really enjoy it!
I am however concerned that I received this game in an unsealed state.
This item was intentionally purchased as a 'NEW' product and I was charged appropriately.
If I was going to receive a pre-owned, unsealed version of the game, this should have been clearly stated.
I can't leave seller feedback on this item for some reason, so am leaving a product review for visibility.
