So did I. Loved the GBA one too.

Why do people point to their wrists when asking for the time, but don't point to their crotch when they ask where the bathroom is?

I've never played a Mario Tennis before for whatever reason. But I'm getting this. Mostly because I have money and time now and it just looks like it'll be a fun way to spend some time with Mario and the gang.

@HeroOfWaffles no, that's not it. I just didn't like the game in general.

Oh. I don't think you'll like this one too much either then.

The special games don't have much replayability in their opinion though.

Trying to claim how replayable a game this quickly is a bad idea in general that reviewers need to stop pretending they know one way or the other.

Well you can kinda tell how replayable a game is after a week or so with it. Pick up a New SMB and you'll go through the game, beat the boss and then it'll sit on your shelf. On the other hand something like Kid Icarus you'll play through but then go back and replay levels so you can get a higher ranking and unlock weapons that you can use online. Not just because that option is there but because it's still interesting.

Don't get me wrong I'm pretty hyped about Mario Tennis but I can see it being the sort of game that slowly finds it's way out of my 3DS, into my game case and then eventually onto my shelf. I doubt it'll be like Mario Kart DS, sit in my DS for months on end, always on hand and only finding it's way to the shelf after six years when Mario Kart 7 came out.

So yeah, you can tell these things pretty quickly.

I doubt the reviewer spent a whole week playing this game. Maybe they did but either way it's not going to affect/effect me buying it or not. I check out reviews but I never put much stock into them whether it be games or movies. Only I know what I will like or not like. I respect people's opinions but ultimately it's up to me whether or not I like something.

Want: Disney Magical World 2, Ever Oasis, HM Skytree Village, Story of Season Trio of Towns, Dragon Quest 8, YoKai Watch 2, Pikmin 3DS, Mario Party Star Rush, Mario Sports Superstars, Super Mario Maker 3D, Poochy & Yoshi's Woolly World, Pokemon Sun and Moon.
Playing: Dragon Quest 7

Mario sports games have never really been all that replayable technically, once you unlock everything that's pretty much it. I personally, however, always found myself playing random matches over and over just for the fun of it.

Unless the game is at the Ninjabread Man level of terrible a reviewer should get through the whole game. If they aren't then their review isn't worth the server space it's stored on. If they are getting to see everything the game has to offer in one day's play then it really doesn't have much replay value at all. If it ends up just being about online play and nothing more after a couple of hours with the game then I'd expect a reviewer to point that out.

also I'm sure that
1) The reviewer knows more about the longevity of the game than we do
2) 70-80% is not a horrible score. Did people really expect 90s from Mario Tennis sans RPG mode?

And so you should, the GBC version is all sorts of wins. It's easily one of the best Gameboy games..... better than the first batch of Pokemans even

@skywake, I wasn't expecting a 90 excellent score, but most of the Mario sports games have gotten pretty high reviews. 70 or 7.0 to me is just "good" not "great" like the games have been known for.

At the end of the day it's just Tennis with Mario,and if you like Tennis,you know what you're getting.
And considering we haven't had a decent Tennis game on a Nintendo Console in a while,I say it's worth getting.
I just hope we get a bucket load of characters this time,and not the crap fest of characters that Mario Kart 7 had.

I disagree that MK7's characters were lame, though I'm fine with you having that opinion. I thought all the new characters were quite fun to play with. I'm looking forward to the new characters that will be available in MTO.

The confirmed new characters so far are Luma, Baby Peach, and Dry Bowser. Luma is a cute choice, but Rosalina would've been more proper. I just hope there won't be a nursery-load of baby characters like in Mario Kart Wii. The Mario Tennis games usually have large character rosters from what I remember, so there will definitely be more just waiting to be discovered.

KaiserGX

As long as the main characters are there I am fine. (The SNES/64) anything else is extra. I do like Lakitu though. Don't really care about the other new ones. Wait didn't realize Shy Guy was new! Ok add him too, to my favorites. I wish Kamek/Magikoopa would be playable since Mario Kart 64 though.

ok how come the only thing from a Mario RPG that's ever acknowledged outside of a Mario RPG is Baby Peach? Does someone at Nintendo just hate those games and want to ruin their reputation or something? Seriously, why? Baby Peach is the most annoying thing the world. My ears oh god.

Beyond Good and Evil 2 better be happening! In the meanwhile though, here's a fun little Let's Play of the original. Think you'll like the game if you like Zelda!

Actually, the seven star spirits from Paper Mario were in Mario party 5.

Bowser's floating castle from Paper Mario is in Mario Kart: Super Circuit too. Then there was Super Mario RPG's Mushroom Kingdom music in Fortune Street as well. Super Mario Wiki stated that the Peach Court in this game looks like one of the first chambers in Peach's Castle in Bowser's Inside Story, though that might be a coincidence.

But I don't care much for Baby Peach either. Leave the nursery to Yoshi's Island, please!
