Before I start to blabber about this game, set aside the fact its in the Mario franchise. As a tennis game it lives up to the most general expectation that we have for that sport. Although, it gets repetitive and dull after a few hits. Now when you add Mario to the title we aspire gameplay that will keep us attached to our handheld for hours. This game fails to do that. No variety in minigames, customization, or storyline. It has all the characters we love. Why trick us into loving something that's not worth our time.
