I bought this game from a Gamestop for 20 bucks because I have fond memrioes of this game from when I was younger. Great chacter selection, 15 in all, the courts are well done, and it has a challenging tourment mode in which you can unlock extra content such as more courts, chacters, and variations on the Special Games, as they call them. I however, disliked pretty much all of them once I played them once or twice, the one expection being the Mecha-Bowser minigame. This is, in my eyes the best Mario sports game ever made. The controls are really tight, and its easy to pick up and play, hence great to play w/ friends and family. It's best played in small doses, as it does get repeitive quickly, but is still HUGELY replayable. I reccomend you rent it.
I love tennis, (watching it, NOT playing it) so I love this game. The execution of some serves were so cool, I love how they put in the power shots for each character, and the courts were excellently designed. Plus, I got a chance to see the bloopers, which made me laugh so flippin' hard. I love Mario Power Tennis, and I highly recommend it to both tennis fans and Mario fans.
