Mario Tennis Ultra Smash Review (Nintendo)

Mario Tennis Ultra Smash
What It Is

Mario Tennis: Ultra Smash, from Nintendo, is the latest edition in the Mario Tennis series, and combines tennis with the power-ups and wackiness that Nintendo games are known for. Players will hit the court for a game of tennis as some of Nintendo's most classic characters, including Mario and Luigi, Peach, Bowser, Donkey Kong, and Yoshi. The game has multiple modes, including an amiibo mode that allows players to bring their amiibo figures into the game as a doubles partner.

Is It Fun?

Ultra Smash is a fast paced, tennis game for one or up to four people to play together. Playing against computer-controlled characters is a fun challenge, and playing against friends or family members makes it a great party game. 

Who It’s For

The game is rated E for everyone and perfect for Nintendo fans, who will love the game's characters and action. 

What To Be Aware Of

Some of the other modes include Classic, and Mega Ball Rally, which has players trying to see how long a volley they can maintain without someone missing a shot.

Ultra Smash is a Wii U exclusive. As of this review, it is not sold with an amiibo figure, however, multiple figures, including some from Super Smash Bros., will work in the game. All amiibo figures are sold separately.
