Mario is back on court

Mario is back on court to bring you more fun and exciting tennis in Mario Tennis Open. Join Mario and his Mushroom Kingdom friends as they return to the court in this latest installment of the Mario Tennis franchise. Expect the same crazy fun that you'd expect from Mario Kart as you compete in engaging singles and doubles matches or wacky special games.

Play as your favourite Nintendo character or use your own personalised Mii character as you serve, volley, and smash your way up the leaderboards. Blast it past Bowser or shoot a passing shot past Peach in this great addition to the Mario family.

Thanks to the features of the Nintendo 3DS system, up to four people can play together in local or online multiplayer modes and exchange player information via StreetPass. Choose between intuitive touchscreen and gyro sensor controls or strategic button-based gameplay that delivers an even deeper experience.

Key features

  • Choose from 16 of your favourite Nintendo characters or play as your Mii
  • Play with up to four players with only one game card
  • Customise your Mii character with different outfits
  • Improve your skills with special training levels

The players

Choose from 16 of your favourite Nintendo characters to battle it out on court. Different characters have different playing styles, so experiment with different players until you find someone that suits your game. If you enjoy smashing returns then opt for hard-hitting Donkey Kong, or if you like curving it around your opponent then go for Boo. You can also use your own personalised Mii character

The matches

Play in custom exhibition matches or compete in tournaments and work your way up the ranks to become the star of the circuit. Afterwards, why not let your fun side loose with a range of new quirky special games, including Super Mario Tennis, Ring Shot, and Galaxy Rally?

Customise your character

You can upgrade and customise your player by collecting coins as you play and use them to get new tennis rackets, trainers, and wristbands from the shop. Each item has a slightly different effect – it might increase your power or add spin to your shots – so experiment and see how you prefer your character to play.

Local and online multiplayer

Play with friends and family in the same room using local wireless play. Up to four of you can hit the court together, and the best part is you only need one Mario Tennis Open game card.

Play online exhibition matches with up to three friends, or play open matches with other people in your region and work your way up the online leaderboard, all via the Nintendo Network.

Controls and direct mode

Master the five basic shots and you'll be halfway to becoming a true tennis pro! You can tap and hold the correct shot panel on the touchscreen to ready yourself and then send a ball flying or, alternatively, use buttons to blast at your opponent.

With Direct Mode, you get eye-level with the spins and slices of the court using motion controls; just hold your Nintendo 3DS system up vertically and you'll be instantly transported to an on-court view. It's a brilliant way to start your tennis career as your character will move automatically and aim shots the way you are facing. You can still use the circle pad to move manually if you prefer.

Courts

Play on a variety of different courts including Mario Stadium, DK Jungle, Peach's Palace, Mushroom Valley, and Bowser's Castle. Adapt your style of play to each court as the speed and bounce of the ball changes.

I really wasn't interested in getting this game as I am not into tennis, but the Mario fan in me couldn't resist.
One of the great things about this game is the amount of Nintendo characters you can choose from.Donkey Kong, Wario, Bowser and a loads more that are unlocked as you progress.You can also play as you Mii which is fun.The game is a bit easy at first but the later cups become a bit more competitive.The gameplay is fun and addictive, but the best part of the game is the mini games. Especially "The Super Mario Tennis mini game" where you use the tennis ball to play levels from the original Super Mario Bros Game.
The game has online play that works really well, however you have to have a perfect signal to get it to work which is a similar problem with Mario Kart 7. Another fun part of the game is the item shop,where you can purchase different costumes and equipment for your Mii. The only Problem with the game is that it is a bit short,and once you complete the cups there's not much to do.

Overall: It's a great game with lots of Nintendo charm, but a little bit short in content.

At the time of writing, there are not a huge amount of great 3DS games available, so it's best to stick to trusted Nintendo franchises that involve obese Italian plumbers. Mario Tennis Open is no different - it is extremely polished, well presented and quick, addictive fun.

There are a few different modes available in the game and each offer varying levels of difficulty and satisfaction. Some are harder than Geoff Capes wrapped in concrete (like the single player doubles mode), whilst some are as varied as Michael Jackson's skin colour (online multiplayer).

All in all, there is not an awful lot to say about the game, you run about the court with your character of choice (obviously Donkey Kong or Yoshi), using the correct button for each appropriate shot type until your opponent loses the battle of wits and runs the wrong way when you sell him a textbook dummy. Simplistic, but addictive. Bonus games, hundreds of unlockables and the desire to spank one more punk online before tea keep you going back and as you never really 'complete' the game, the fun never ends!

This is my first Mario Tennis game, and I'm finding it pretty good. I flew through the beginner and intermediate single player tournaments, and then got repeatedly beaten in the final of the Champions League. That's my main gripe about the single player, the difficulty isn't as balanced as I'd like it to be. Once you've finished the tournament (or given it a rest for a while) there are special tennis 'mini-games', where you can shoot balls through rings to get points. The technique you need to get is to shoot through several rings at once to get a score multiplier, the rings get bigger so they're easier to hit but the points value decreases. There are bronze, silver and gold difficulties, I've yet to finish it on gold where you need 500 points. There is also the Mario Galaxy game, where the opposite end of the court has panels that disappear and you musn't let the ball fall into the black hole. I've yet to complete the 100 rally difficulty on this, it can be brutally tough! There are a couple of Mushroom Kingdom themed games too, but i think you get the idea now.That's about it for single player, there's also exhibition matches where you can set the rules, like the number of sets and so on.

The single player wont last very long, so you will get more out of this game when you go online. Here you can challenge players in your region to either a casual (tie-break match) or an intense match (2 games, 1 set), or let the 3DS decide. I have tried both, and while I got my ass handed to me several times before I won my first encounter I was starting to get used to playing human opponents. The game tries to pair you with people of similar skill, but sometimes it doesn't! Mario Tennis also uses the new 'Nintendo Network' system, but I don't see what this really does, as it just says 'Connecting...

As a huge Mario fan let alone a tennis fan i must say that this was a product for me to get.

The good:
For one on a Nintendo 3DS you look at the 3D which i found very effective, I also like the graphics. So far i think a lack of graphics is within the 3DS games but i really think the graphics have a real Mario feel to it engaging you within the game. I love how you can customize your character and even use your very own Mii!

The Bad:
The reason this game has not achieved 5 star is because its far too repetitive e.g. You serve, you play, then you powershot so it just is in a continuous cycle.

Overall:
If you are a Mario fan it is worth checking out this game, but if you are seeking a long term entertaining game then head for the other mario games (Mario Kart 7 or New Super Mario Bros2.) My son loves this game so i think as a present to younger ones would be great.

I got Mario Tennis Open the other day thanks to a coupon. I was looking for Pokémon Conquest, but their only copy had just been sold, so I settled for a new addition to my 3DS library. I never expected to get the new Mario Tennis until I was standing with it at the counter. I never thought it looked all that special, and the only other game in the series I own, the original Nintendo 64 and GBC versions, aren't a crown jewels in my complex of games.

I booted up the game about a week after actually buying it, and the first thing I noticed was the lack of an opening cinematic. It's a damn shame, too, because I had always been a fan of Camelot's introduction sequences, and their last Mario Tennis game on the GameCube blew me out of the water when I first saw it. This game, overever, simply pans over a few different courts and calls it a day, heading into the title screen. This was my first tip that Mario Tennis Open is lackluster in several aspects, but despite all the flaws that I could spend hours nitpicking at, I've been pleasantly surprised by it. At its core, it is a very fun experience.

The problem with this game is that it feels like it's been done too many times before before. I haven't played Mario Tennis on the Nintendo 64 in years. I wasn't even good. Still, when I picked up the new one, I felt like an old pro almost immediately, and it's simply because the first few minutes are done in a very boring way. I can't even explain why it's so uninteresting because I haven't even pinpointed the issue myself. Boring though the game may be at times, it does have several good qualities.

Gameplay

The mechanics of the game are very solid, and I give it credit for that.
