For the only major release on Switch so far this year it's score is a bit lack luster.

I was expecting better. 

Mario Tennis is not kind of game that gets very high scores, so 79 score for Mario Tennis game is quite good score.

Sports games get good scores, just look at NBA2K.

Bit of a disappointing thread considering there are no links to the Metacritic or Opencritic scores.

it dropped to 78.

I was more referring to the OP than anything lol, but thanks for the link regardless :P

Mario Tennis Aces looks and performs as well as anything you'd expect from the House of 'Tache, but its family friendly appearance disguises a brutally difficult single player experience that will surely alienate younger players. With a high skill threshold, it also loses out on the simple delights of pick up and play local multiplayer, but for those willing to put in the time and effort there's still enjoyment to be found in its surprisingly challenging, albeit embellished, take on the sport.

 

 

 

WTF? When did kids become snowflakes (or assumed to be by the reviewer) that don't like a challenge? When I was at that age, mastering a game was all I had on my mind. I am sure pretty much most on here would feel the same.

Sports games get good scores, just look at NBA2K. 

But 79 score is good score in any case espacily for sport game, and sports games usually don't get great scores highest rating PS4 sport game is 88 and NBA 2K18 have 80 meta score.

2K17 and 2K16 have scores in the high 80s. 

Point is sports game can get higher scores, depends on good they are.

Y'all can't say Nintendo as a pass or Mario as one cause removing points because of difficulty is so stupid.
And some sites calling this a Ultra smash port. What the heck this is literally the opposite.

MTA getting robbed no :(

It took 5 weeks for Kirby to sell through 1 million according to Nintendo did it not?

https://nintendoeverything.com/kimishima-on-the-sales-of-kirby-star-allies-bayonetta-2/

Isnt Kirby Planet Robobot one of the highest rated and most loved kirby title in resent years? and its sold the 2nd worst?
Meanwhile people keep saying StarAllies isnt a good Kirby game, and its sold the most?

Wut? shouldnt there be a corrolation between a good game and its sales? what is this :p

Nintendo hardware sells it's games just as much as Nintendo games sell it's hardware. It's this thing where, you buy a Switch in 2018 and you buy what? Mario, Zelda, oh and the latest game that recently came out, Kirby.

Games that have no buisness dominating sales charts do so on Nintendo consoles because it's a high selling console with very little choice in the way of major releases.

Point is sports game can get higher scores, depends on good they are. 

And 2K18 has 80.

Point is that sports games usualy dont have high scores, fact that highest rating PS4 sports game has score 88 prove my point.

Because it wasn't as good as the last ones.



It's a just a single point under Power Tennis and people are losing their shit. Wow ... I know they can't get everybody satisfied but some of the difficulties complain are beyond stupid.

I'm just excited that we're getting a great Mario Tennis game again, that's pretty much it.

Also, I hope this one won't get the "bias" treatment when it's clear they do not. Even Nintendo centric reviews gave it a 8/10 max.
