Mario Tennis Open: Suit up and serve against the world


When we last saw an original Mario Tennis title, Camelot and Nintendo had us traversing the halls and sidewalks of the Royal Tennis Academy in search of opportunities to level up our main protagonist in hopes of advancing through the school's leader...

Multiplayer, Mii customization, Easy learning curve

Not enough new features to advance the series

Mario Tennis Open Playtest: All Tennis, No Story


The single player tournaments and matches weren't really my favorite part of the Mario Tennis Open. The Special Games and multiplayer were.

1. There’s no nice community option like there is in

Mario Tennis Open Review


It's not the size of the racket....

Wealth of control options; Tournament, exhibition, and special modes; Local and Online Multiplayer; Your Mii

and that's it

Although the special modes tire after a few dozen serves and the modes are a little shallow, despite the constant stream of unlockables, Mario and friends are still a blast to play with and letting your Mii join in on the fun is a natural evolution for...

Mario Tennis Open Review


Mario Tennis Open is a stripped-back, mundane entry in the Mario Sports series.

Fun with a few friends

The tennis never hits its stride ; Far too easy until an 11th-hour difficulty spike ; Convoluted control schemes

Spicing up the tennis somewhat is the "chance shot" mechanic. During rallies, glowing circles appear on the court, corresponding to one of five shot types. Performing a shot on the colored circle causes you to perform a smash shot that can stagger your...

Mario Tennis Open Review


Mario Tennis Open makes an effort to be the best Mushroom Kingdom tennis game ever... but something went wrong in the process.

The fundamental Mario Tennis Open experience is sound. Camelot’s decade of tennis experience means they understand how to make the sport engaging and addicting. Using the 3DS’s touch pad or buttons for the game’s six types of shots is a welcome...

Mario Tennis Open- Nintendo DS


Despite the criticisms mentioned earlier in the review, the game was fun for a little while. I’d probably have a better time of it if I was younger but there comes a change in expectations with age. For a tennis game, it was pretty good but there’s...

Nintendo's multi-talented mascot brings his ferocious forehand to the 3DS as up to four gamers can team up or square off in Mario Tennis Open. Series mainstays like Bowser, Peach, and Yoshi join in the action as players use wicked spin, execute drop shots

Consumer review by:



I liked the game. The tennis is pretty good. But, the older ones were better. They didn't have Mii's, or streetpass. Or online. Though still, not the best.

Mario Tennis Open


The Mario gang takes to the court in Mario Tennis Open. Get your lob shot and slice ready!

While Mario Tennis Open certainly has a lot going for it, including a good theme and the great production value we have all come to expect and enjoy from Mario games, ultimately there wasn’t really enough to keep me riveted to the game for long periods...
