Can Tennis Actually Become FUN?

byforestofdeath Aug 2, 2002
4 Helpfuls 5 Helpfuls Was this review helpful?
Pros Many characters, addictive
Cons Annoying in places
Recommended it? Yes

Yes it can! Mario and chums are here to prove that, and boy do they do a good job!
I never really liked sports games before, but Mario Tennis is one game that changed that. The videos are one reason - Each character (and there's well over 16) has their own ending every time they win a cup, and... Read full review »

Cons None.
Recommended it? Yes

Mario, you?ve done I again.

It seems that Mario has made his comeback since the Smash hit of Mario 64 and Mario Cart. And this time he?s out on the tennis court.

Mario Tennis is a fun, exciting game that never has a dull moment. The game has many features, including a great... Read full review »


Is Mario Infallible?

21 Helpfuls 22 Helpfuls Was this review helpful?
Pros 16 Characters, Lots of Courts, Great Gameplay
Cons Too much to do with too little reward
Recommended it? Yes

Wouldn't it be great just to go into a store, look at the video game selection, and without ever doing any research on the game, pick it up and know that it was great? Really, that's what the Mario series has become known for. Every Mario game from Donkey Kong Arcade up to the recent Super Smash... Read full review »


Deuce thumbs up for this smashing Tennis title

22 Helpfuls 23 Helpfuls Was this review helpful?
Pros One of the best and more fun Tennis simulations around
Cons Repetition problems with the A.I. usually in Doubles play
Recommended it? Yes

Camelot, the developer of Mario Golf, has been rehired to create another winning sports title including Mario and his friends. Since this one came out of the blue during the last days of Nintendo 64's existance, nobody expected one of the last Mario titles to be such a hit. Mario Tennis is one of... Read full review »


Mario Tennis Worth the Price

Pros Great Graphics and lots of neat things to unlock and open.
Cons Sometimes to easy to win. The AI is very slow-witted
Recommended it? Yes

At first I was skeptical about this game. Woo Hoo just another spin-off game trying to sell itself by using familiar characters. But not so this game. It has tons of extras if you get good enough from the two secret characters to the secret ring tournaments you can only unlock via codes.There are... Read full review »

Pros Classic characters, great graphics, and lots of fun!
Cons They've yet to announce a sequel for the Gamecube :(
Recommended it? Yes

Mario Tennis is an incredible game. It's also the first tennis game I've ever really liked. It features all the classic Mario characters, several modes of play, impressive graphics, and the multi-player mode is very fun.

Don't be fooled into thinking this is a kid's game either. The... Read full review »

Cons You won't be able to get your husband to leave the TV.

We recently purchased a Nintendo 64 as a companion to our tiresome Playstation. We rented a couple games with no desire to purchase but the same did not hold true for Mario Tennis 64. Within an hour of playing it my husband exclaimed, "We're buying this one!"

Pros Slick graphics, funny characters, Waluigi, great multiplayer.
Cons Single player replay is non-existent, Tennis will never be amazingly fun.
Recommended it? Yes

Mario Tennis has some very good things in it, but the main problem I see with it, is that tennis will never be fun, either in real life or in videogames. Mario Tennis is fun for a while, but quickly wears out its welcome in single player, and the multiplayer can be fun with four friends, but only... Read full review »

Pros Fast and gameplay; Plenty of characters; Challenging.
Cons Some computer characters too hard to beat.
Recommended it? Yes

You're probably thinking, "Ohh, just another Mario title. What a hoot." Well, think again. This game features over 10 playable characters, plenty of courts, and a truckload of modes to conquer. The best thing about this game is that it is so good, that it just becomes addictive after a while. You... Read full review »

Warning! Very long review ahead!

Pros Great fun, easy to learn and you will play it for hours, esp. multiplayer
Cons too bloody addictive! some crappy players
Recommended it? Yes

Those ubiquitous Italians Mario and Luigi seem to be popping their cartoony little heads up everywhere at the moment. Not content with Super Mario 12 on the SNES, or a dodgy little movie and, further, about 6 different games on the Nintendo 64, they?ve now gone ahead and done not only a golf game...

I know that the N64 is getting into the later stages of it's life, but I bought Mario Tennis the other day from a friend of mine. I have since been playing this game non-stop. I don't even think I have turned it off yet.

Pros Gameplay feels a lot like Virtua Tennis
Cons Not nearly as much fun as Sega's excellent Tennis title
Recommended it? Yes

Nintendo has, over the last few years, taken the liberty to license the Mario name to any and all game genres that it can imagine Nintendo characters starring in. From the delightful Mario RPG on SNES to the downright terrible Mario Party series, Nintendo's cutesy mascots have taken over almost... Read full review »

Pros you can change the hardness of the courts the difficulty
Cons none that I can think of
Recommended it? Yes

This has got to be one of the best games that Nintendo has ever made that features Mario, Luigi and all of his friends. This game is good because you change the bounce of the courts, the difficulty of the people that you challenge, the speed of the game. It is hard to choose who to pick in this... Read full review »

Here's the skinny folks, this game rocks at its core. It may be surrounded by cutesy Nintendo mascots but this is one great and addictive video game. I do not like tennis at all. However, this game is fun to play whether you like tennis or not. Here is my rundown:

Pros Tuns of fun.
Cons The single player mode gets old after a while.

I must start by saying that I am not a big tennis fan. I think it is boring to watch, and not a lot of fun to play. But when I came across Mario Tennis 64, I just had a lot of fun playing it. I ended up buying it only to find out that I hadn't experienced the best part of the game yet. Which is the... Read full review »
