Removing features and reducing the player's freedom lead to legitimate anger. Nintendo should totally get the blame for this.
It's not worth a refund though. They just need to patch the game and restore the full sets.

After spending three hours with the game I would agree with this. There's absolutely no need for a refund, but Nintendo should patch in better menus and a much wider variety of options in the different modes. As it is the game is needlessly restricted and combined with the cheap menus and bland, repetitive music it feels like Camelot and Nintendo have really cut corners in places.

Limited options can be fixed with patches and I hope Nintendo will fix them soon, or I'm likely trading this in.

I thought I saw a trailer were they said there is a mode that when enabled the game plays like real tennis? Perhaps people saw that and assumed all aspects and not just turning off the flashy stuff.

TBH it is 2018 it should be in there anyway. Not so hard to have a traditional tennis mode.

Since I've started playing games with mods, I've come to the realization that options are really important.  You look at some of the mods out there and it soon becomes clear that different people have a vast array of preferences.  I think more developers need to realize that.  Tools to control game rules should be as robust as possible.  

Agreed especially a game like tennis were some people like the sport and want to play as Nintendo characters. The more options the bigger the audience.

The lack of options is mistake on Nintendo's part that'll hopefully be fixed, but this was known even before the game launched, so it's your own mistake for buying a game without doing enough research.

It wasn't that clear though They basically said in one of their videos there be a normal mode. People assumed it meant everything and not just the fancy shots being turned off.. In any case it it stupidity on Nintendo s part for not doing that. It would move so many more units for so little effort.

Funny how this is a positive when it's a Nintendo game. All other publishers are criticized for not delivering a complete game at launch.

You guys never fail to amuse me.

Heh, I guess people see what they want to see.

Anyway, that post was made more as a comment.If people bought Mario Tennis Aces, an arcade sport game, expecting it to be realistic then its their fault.Yeah yeah, it would have been nice if it had the option, but that was never the game main purpose.

The arcade aspect of the game is all the smash shots and whatever else fancy the game has above and beyond a normal tennis game.

The ability to change

- Number of sets

- Number of games in a set

- How to win a set


is easy and a core function that should be there and in fact it shouldn't be something people need to look out for lol, even though Nitendo on top of all this said there was a normal mode where you can turn off all the fancy slam shots etc.



 

 

they should not be allowed to play games anywhere, as they do not posses the mental awareness of reality.



 

So Nintendo is skimping on options again? According to my research that's the perfect thing to do in a game and if you complain about it you're just a stupid Nintendo hater.

That said, I played the game for a bit but I still haven't found the option to turn off the new mechanics. Was that a myth or is it just not available in single player? Becaue if not I might refund it as well since I bought it on that promise alone.

Answer is italicized. It's available in multiplayer because the single-player is ostensibly a(n extended) tutorial for those new mechanics.

That's too bad then. Looks like the game is going back.
