    Don’t be fooled, this not as great as the GC version. It’s overly simplified for the gamers groomed on Wii sports. You control your characters movements with the Wii mote, however the ball goes in the direction suggested by your swing. Which sounds great and is, in small doses, but the game dosen’t reach the fun or intensity level of being more specific with your shot direction. Many times the ball will automatically move toward your opponent despite the swinging motion. Which is a downer, because the whole point of tennis is to hit the ball AWAY from your opponent! This fault is too critical to ignore, and I reall wanted to like this game. But it’s clear it was retooled for simpler games and less complex matches. If your looking for such a game, then this version of mario tennis is for you. But, if your looking for something with a little more depth and replayability do what I did, and just dust off the GC version and pop it in for an intense experience.

    This review is from: New Play Control! Mario Power Tennis (Video Game)

    I’d like to begin by saying that my kids and I have never played this game on the GC. I did not like this game at first, either, because of the play control with just the Wiimote. It is awkward, and at some points you lose sight of why you hit the ball. However, after plugging in the nunchuck, I was able to get separate swing and body motion control (swing=Wiimote, nunchuck=body motion). It’s a similar setup to Mario Super Sluggers, where more casual players can hit and pitch while other players can have better control by using both devices. The game itself has a few very fun minigames, a good tournament and exhibition section, neat courses with clever twists (I never played tennis with a crocodile on my ankle before), cool graphics, and just general Mario fun. The speech messages sent to the remote when you win or lose are great also. It’s a good Wii port of a good game.
