Everyone can have a good time with this game. Great controls. Much better than Wiisports Tennis. One of my favorite games ever. I hope that they will come out with a Mario Tennis but this is next best possible.

All Sega superstars gathered together to play some tennis at their spare times. It was fun to play one of superstars while watching them convert their signature personality into awesome Tennis skills. It is great for family and friends.
Sega Superstars Tennis delivers in many areas, but it has some flaws. For what it is, Superstars Tennis does a great job of delivering fan service to...well, the fans. With over 16 characters and almost as many courts, SST brings on a wave of nostalgia for people who grew up on SEGA's games. The controls are air-tight, except when you use the motion-sensing, but button controls are perfect.
Every character can let out a "Superstar Shot" to help give them the edge. They have a myriad of effects, and can frequently be the turn of the tide in a match-up.
The game's only real problems are it's lack of online multiplayer and the fact that the minigames aren't exactly a lot of fun if you don't have multiple people playing.
But SEGA delivers where it counts, with on-the-spot tennis game play, with a touch of Mario Tennis, and a heaping helping of fan service that's sure to give you a wave of nostalgia. The graphics are also pretty sweet.
It's a solid tennis game, but without multi-player online, which is standard in most games these days, and a lack of fun One-Player minigames, it loses some points.
