Mario Tennis Open finally brings the sports series to the Nintendo 3DS so we hit the court to bring you our review. The game offers some neat innovations to the franchise, like the gyroscope integration, but ultimately the overall package was too lightweight for us.
"Mario Tennis has appeared in a number of incarnations across several platforms over the years, and the version on display here feels less like a tennis game designed around the eccentricities of the Mario universe, and more like a common arcade-style tennis title – one that happens to feature familiar Mario faces and locations. While that simpler approach robs the game of some expected personality, Mario Tennis Open remains a very solid and approachable on-court affair, which puts the onus on taking advantage of chance shots to overcome opponents."
