New Play Control! Mario Power Tennis - Play It
This is another abbreviated edition of Play It? as my full review of the Mario Power Tennis Wiimake went up over at NWR recently. It's already sparked a minor controversy in the Talkback thread in the forums.

It was a strange game to review. I started out being relatively frustrated with the controls. This was because I was remembering Mario Tennis on the N64. While in college, playing that game became second nature. It was insanely easy to always pull off the perfect shot. Opponents would have to run all over their half of the court hunting down the ball. It was impossible to achieve that same level of fluency in this Wii remake.

Last Sunday, when my sister and brother-in-law came over, I realized just how fun the game can be when we played a four-player match. It isn't about always doing the perfect shot. It's about always trying to do the perfect shot. The unpredictability makes for much more exciting multiplayer matches and it evens the playing field so inexperienced people can jump right in and have fun. Bottom line is that it is a better tennis game than the one included in Wii Sports. I definitely think Wii owners should play this game.
