Summary

Easily the best tennis game ever (Better than Super Tennis)

The Good

The great thing about this game is that it is simple. It's not some overcomplicated sports sim with the typical stagnant gameplay. It has at its heart what made all the great NES games of yesteryear so much fun. You can choose a wide range of characters and courts to play on, as well as a fair share of game modes, none of which are lacking. Overall an excellently fun game.

The Bad

Well, there really isn't much to dislike about this game. I'm hard pressed to find something to criticize.

The Bottom Line

A simple format that has within it a gameplay unmatched in any other tennis game. There's a depth to it that makes an experienced player much better than a beginner, but the game feels so relaxed and inviting (because its so funny) its really easy to get into. This was one of my favorite 64 games ever. Right up there with Zelda and Mario 64.
