Amazon.co.uk Review

The New Play Control! range returns with a special update of the GameCube's hit tennis game. Starring the whole of the Mushroom Kingdom pantheon, there's much more to this sports sim than it first appears.

Not only can you play as Bowser but you can also pick-up Mario Kart style items
Mario uses his power shot to bring on a rather unorthodox piece of tennis equipment
It may not look like it, but at heart this is a surprisingly deep sports sim
Boss battles aren't a normal part of most tennis games, but they are in this one!

At the heart of the game though is a traditional tennis sim with controls that have just that little bit more depth than Wii Sports, for a slightly more realistic feel. To start with though all you do is use the remote to hit the ball and, if you want, the Nunchuk's analogue stick to move around the court.

That's just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to other options though, with everything from the crazy power shots to special gimmick courts filled with obstacles and situations from previous Mario games. With 18 different characters to choose from and an excellent four-player mode this is one of the Wii's best new/old sports games.

Key Features
  • Ace shot: Each character has its own unique power shots for both attack and defence, from wielding a mallet to hit the ball to using an extending arm to return an incoming ball.
  • Mario sports: Special game modes including Ring Shot where you score extra points by hitting the ball through hoops or Item Battle where you use Mario Kart style power-ups.
  • Wimbledon uncommon: Optional gimmick courts bring bizarre obstacles and rules to the game as you play in haunted houses and gunge filled courts.
  • Games within games: Huge selection of mini-games to test your skills, from painting a mural on a wall to playing noughts and crosses for hidden Star Shines.
  • Celebrity sports: Play as everyone from Mario and Bowser to Donkey Kong and Waluigi -- each with their own unique abilities and different styles of play.

Product Description

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

5.0 out of 5 stars All time classic 15 Mar 2009
Platform for Display:Nintendo Wii
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
The oldies are the best, this was a pressie for my son for his 11th birthday. He absolutely loves it for wii. Already own for gamecube but loves being able to play with new wii control. Played on it for hours. I've had a go with him but he's just far too good. If you want realistic tennis then this game is probably not for you but if you want tennis with + fun then i'd definately recommend.

Bought this game for my son's 7th Birthday & he's not stopped playing it!!!!

It tires him out (which for all parents is a bonus) and has so much fun when he plays it.

Great tool for improving hand eye co-ordination, excellent very pleased.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great for kids 29 Jun 2011
Platform for Display:Nintendo Wii
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
This is a great game for kids, my 5 year old loves to play tennis with his favorite characters. It is clearly not a real tennis game, but he does not care. He loves all the special powers and the different and silly courts. His dad, the other wii player in our house, does not like it at all, that's why I am saying it is good for kids only. This is our son's second favorite game after Mario Karts.

Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
This is a brilliant game my son (8) and all his friends love it and it has lasted much longer than most others, which usually get replaced with a new favourite within weeks. Seems to be lots of challenges to complete and they never get bored!!!

3.0 out of 5 stars No ace but a good serve from Nintendo 29 July 2013
By DPVC
Platform for Display:Nintendo Wii|Verified Purchase
It's not a bad game, far from it, but the controls for me took a while to get a good understanding. Before you play, make sure you read through the instruction manual. Graphics are bold, and are consistent with the other Mario games. Character selection is okay but you wish Nintendo added some more fresh faces from other series (per chance a super smash bros tennis game?). It's definitely not a realistic tennis game (it's Mario after all...) but its still good fun to play (I like activating the trick shots myself). I would say this game is actually less repetitive than wii sports tennis, considering the control issue. Wii sport tennis feels a bit like swinging and then swinging again, at least with this theres more option in moving, court style and moves etc.
The GameCube version of the game is better (only for control) but those without a GameCube...and are looking for something different than wii sports tennis, can do no wrong here.
