A useless re-release
Mario Power Tennis was a solid GameCube title released in 2004. Therefore it would make sense after the success of Wii Sports’ tennis that an updated version of Mario Power Tennis, with motion controls would work. Sadly it’s quite clear from the jump that the “new play controls” are severely worse than the GameCube controls, making it frustrating, and a complete waste of a re-release. Making things worse is the fact there is no other control option, so if you wish to play “classic” Mario Power Tennis you’ll have to pick up a copy of the Gamecube version, which of course you are still able to play on your Nintendo Wii.
