Saw a base.com deal listed for this at £10.99 then found this after a search so thought I'd post in case anyone is after the game and wants to save a few pennies on the already good base.com deal posted.

It's a good price for a Nintendo 3DS first party title (even of this vintage, this dates back to near launch) but I think this is generally considered one of the weaker Mario Tennis games out there lacking the rpg styled career mode the earlier entries had. Wish the other games in this range were available for this price, particularly games like Luigi's Mansion 2 and Mario 3D Land....

Yeah I agree looking at reviews this could have been great but has it's flaws. I'm still considering picking it up for the collection but not sure how much I'd play it.

There are far better games in the selects range that would be amazing at this price so hopefully some of them will drop

That's a great price thanks for posting

Decent game because there is different modes and styles of way to play. You can bash a ball of a Mario themed wall (a bit akin to Breakout, the classic arcade bat n ball game). You can play traditional tournament mode of course. Is not as good as Mario Golf on 3DS, but is definitely well better than Mario Tennis Wii U, and a decent buy.

Can be tricky to do all the controls as you start to progress in the game it gets quite fast and frantic. Probably therefore best suited to 3DS/3DSXL consoles which have a sensible and more useable button layout.

Felt someone needed to after your baiting comment and i think its my turn isn't it everyone? this is what you want yes? an invitation for some of your bizarre ill informed ranting? no idea how you got off my mute list but i've corrected it.

Its the same game on the 2ds sans the 3d option. Controls are exactly the same.

Some great 2ds deals around atm In case anyone searching is reading this. And all these cheap 3ds game deals posted!

No further comment unless it is on topic, and relevant to Mario Tennis 3DS.

It has 2-4 player on the internet and also download play. I think you may be on limited features download play though not 100% sure about that.

agreed with otterbox, obvious pathetic 2ds baiting

Some systems used for 3DS gaming have controls on the bottom half of the unit, easy to reach and access with accuracy. Some other more rigid systems have the traditional "fire buttons" controls significantly higher up on the top half of the unit. This can be uncomfortable and difficult to use, particularly in games where you are doing all sorts of manoeuvres and using all the buttons with frequency. While you can get away without too much frustration on a simple game like New Super Mario Bros 2, a game such as this deal Mario Tennis, not so much. Cheaper systems will only have one way you can hold the controller for all games. Where as the higher spec systems will allow you to hold the controller in different ways to suit both you and the game your playing. Something to bear in mind is all.

I have the standard 2DS but thinking of upgrading to the XL
32389900-NG0Io.jpgI have never experienced the 3DS but so many people say they turn off the 3D and wish they had gone for 2DS instead.

Yoshi's model of console posted would play Mario Tennis just fine IMHO (from a controller layout perspective).

I'd agree with the 3D on the original 3DS range but it is much improved on the New 3DS & New 3DS XL they have eye tracking that makes the 3D issue almost non existant.

With the original 3DS if you moved it the 3D effect would falter and it caused a lot of people to just turn it off completely.

The New 2DS does look great but I'd honestly go with a New 3DS XL if your happy to pay extra for the 3D as it is really good in a lot of games.
