Mario Tennis is indeed a smash hit! I must say I fell in love with it and left it but thanks to Wimbledon I am back playing a game that took just 8 months to code. Camelot Nintendo's new second party developer made this game in 8 months yet still made it so well it rivaled the massive Virtual Tennis on the Dreamcast. You play as characters who are from the Mario universe including the oldie Birdo and the newbie Waluigi and even a BOO. Smash, lob, slice and hit your way to victory in the most addictive game of its type. The levels are gorgeous and lush based around various areas in Mario's universe from peaches castle to Donkey Kong's castle. ... Read the complete review

I had been saving for two weeks when I decided to go out and get something for myself. Being a great fan of consoles (Nintendo 64) and games; especially sports; I bought what was claimed to be the most entertaining tennis game on the market “MARIO TENNIS 64”. I thought this game would be great and I wasn’t disappointed. Great graphics and sound play, easy-to-use configuration, superb game variety, multi-player capabilities and animated characters make this game a smashing hit. Let’s start from the top: -Great Graphics With 3D characters, courts, officials, linesmen (actually bombs) and visual ... Read the complete review

Since owning an N64, there have always been a select few games that nestle at the top of my wish list. Mario Tennis was once one of them. Boasts from many’a’friend on how fluid the game flowed, and the shear gameplay had made me ever more eager. So I cashed in my dooyoo miles (just before the rewards shake up, may I add) and toddled of to Amazon to buy the little blighter. ***Packaging*** Its sparkly, cartooney, laden with bold colours – basically its your typical Nintendo, marioish packaging. Nothing special, yet somewhat attractive. ***The Manual*** Beef I hear you cry. Your not wrong my friend; this can only be ... Read the complete review

Tennis has never been so good. Unless of course you are playing for real and your good at it. But anyway this games about being the fabulous Super Mario, knocking a tennis ball about a court with the massive intent of winning the "world famous STAR CUP". This is only one element of the game and in true nintendo style there are many more variations on a simple game of tennis, theres: Ringshot: hit the ball through some rings, the winner is the person with the most rings. Battle: normal game of tennis but with slopping court, powerups(such as flying turtles etc). The fishy battle: your up against fish throwing balls ... Read the complete review

Plumbers, they're an interesting lot they are. Especially fat plumbers. Even more so, Italian fat plumbers playing tennis. And this is no exception. Camelot come out with another quality game. The first time you play Mario Tennis, the controls seem to be a bit simple. Firstly, only two buttons are used when playing. You press the A or B button, the controls lock into position, and then when the ball is reached, the computer will hit it automatically. Very handy. With the help of the computer, nets, faults and outs rarely occur. This makes Mario Tennis easy to pick and play for people of all abilities. So whether you are after a long session of ...
