    Without any doubt, this is one of the best installments if the Mario Tennis series. Not only for the number of game modes it offers, but because of its addictive gameplay. Mario Tennis Aces is a must-buy for Nintendo Switch owners.

    A great return for one of the most beloved sports franchises. Mario Tennis Aces has a great single player mode and a functional online multiplayer mode.

    Mario Tennis Aces gives the arcade tennis series a massive injection of depth, turning this family friendly sports title into a tactical, fast-paced chess game that is a thrill to play against other people. Its depth is well explained in a limited story mode that has some interesting ideas, but it’s a tougher sell if you’re not looking to lose yourself in hours and hours of online play.

    I imagine that it will be one of my preferred little distractions for the summer.

    Mario Tennis Aces is innovative, well-balanced and deep, which makes it a pretty cool game. That’s why it is so sad the adventure mode is so short, even though it can be surprisingly difficult at times.

    Mario Tennis Aces doesn’t quite excel in all of the ways that it could have, but the core mechanics and multiplayer action are so good, it’s still worth diving in for some quality Mario Tennis action.

    Showing little appreciation for what makes tennis a fascinating sport, Mario Tennis Aces is like a server who can't stop committing double faults.

    Maybe single mode is poor, but online mode and local mode with other people is perfect.

    Nintendo has finally acknowledged the many reasons why Mario Tennis: Ultra Smash ended up disappointing to many people alike with Mario TennisNintendo has finally acknowledged the many reasons why Mario Tennis: Ultra Smash ended up disappointing to many people alike with Mario Tennis Aces, a major upgrade from said installment. Mario Tennis Aces actually fixes what is supposed to be more than just Mario and tennis together with all of the features the game includes that are either new or just absent from Mario Tennis: Ultra Smash. I do recommend getting if you're into fun and sports with Mario (specifically tennis and golf to name at least the most occurring sports). Expand

    It is a well made tennis game, but a character and system balance patch is urgent.

    The core tennis game play is addictive and fun, it's lovely to finally see the single player story is back in the game, it was sadly missedThe core tennis game play is addictive and fun, it's lovely to finally see the single player story is back in the game, it was sadly missed for the WiiU game. Sadly tho the same can't be said for the online. Most of characters are HUGELY unbalanced and some are easily exploitable (Boo, Bowser Jr Chain Chomp are examples). For Nintendo to actually leave those characters untested is very unlike them, here hoping for a patch soon. It is nice that you can play the game without those trick shots or fancy moves in Simply class, but most players will go for Standard class. For a tennis game, its very laughable to not have any matches go for more then 3 games, like it would of been nice to be able to do 1 set, 3 sets or even 5 sets. Who thought that would've been a good amount of games.

    For my score i give this game a 6 out of 10, the story is lovely, the game runs amazing and the sound is right on for tennis, hitting those shots really makes you feel like you did that with a real racquet, But Leaving those characters unbalanced and down right exploitable, plus not being able to play a full set of tennis is unacceptable.

    The core gameplay is really good but I have two MAJOR issues with Mario Tennis Aces:

    1. There is no option for customizing the match length
    The core gameplay is really good but I have two MAJOR issues with Mario Tennis Aces:

    1. There is no option for customizing the match length in local multiplayer! How can a tennis game only include a 3-game match or a tie-break?? They should patch this immediately and give players the ability to play 6-game sets (1, 3, or 5 sets).

    2. Local multiplayer forces split screen. I understand that the special shots require first-person aiming, but at least give players the option to turn this off when playing in the Simple Rules mode!

    I have no clue how this game was released with these issues...Completely killed the competitiveness for me when playing locally with friends.

    Definitely not worth the money, extremely disappointed. Adventure mode sucks. The AI is not well balanced at all. Expert is way too easy, ProDefinitely not worth the money, extremely disappointed. Adventure mode sucks. The AI is not well balanced at all. Expert is way too easy, Pro mode is way too hard. The settings for free play are very limited. If it had cost less money I would let it slide, but for 60 dollars? You're getting ripped off. Expand
