There are specific 3DS control options when it comes to playing a tennis match, with the gyroscope affecting how you view the court, amongst other things, depending on how you tilt it. Normal view shows the tennis court from a top down, birds eye view perspective, but tilting the system upward shifts the camera to an over the shoulder view of the court. This allows for a better view of the ball as it shoots towards you, and you can use the gyroscope in order to aim more accurately and serve that killer shot. Utilise strategic button-based gameplay using the face buttons, the intuitive touch screen, and combine it with the motion-oriented gyroscope aspects in order to rule the courts to the best of yours and the 3DS' ability. There are a whole host of new aspects introduced into the basic gameplay in order to make Mario Tennis Open as interesting and fun as possible. For example, Chance Areas appear on the court at random intervals whilst you are playing a match; if a player runs to them they can initiate a supercharged, devastating Chance Shot.
You can choose between a wide variety of playable Mario characters, or use your own Mii to play the game. The tennis matches are split between singles and doubles, with players able to connect with their friends in local or online multiplayer modes, and play with and against them. The Open Match mode can automatically pair players whose tennis skills are of an equal level, in order to present you with a better challenge. Alongside the basic matches, there is also a wide variety of mini-games and online play, meaning you will never be short of things to do in the Mario Tennis Open world. (Cat Emerson)

Mario Tennis Open lacks enough content to fully satisfy my needs of a Tennis game. Developer Camelot has removed too many details and distilled the game to just power shots from coloured circles. The Multiplayer is also poor. Laggy, hard to find opponents and once you do they're always going to be a hundred times better than you anyway. No match-making is a mistake. The custom games are fun, however, with the Super Mario Bros tennis being the most clever one. The shop were you buy items and clothes for your Mii is sweet but lacks the longevity to pull me in. Cutesy graphics, annoying music and no proper use of the 3D effect. This could have been so much better.
Mario Tennis Open is probably the best tennis game of the saga. Wonderful graphics, with lots of colors and nice animations, incredible music and all the Nintendo's characters that we have known all these years. Nothing new, but a solid and great fantasy-tennis title.
Mario Tennis Open is a really good, new Mario game. As always, it's filled with quality, but it lacks more game modes.
It's been a while but Mario Tennis is finally back and its as fun as ever! Now you can even play as your Mii( fully customisable thanks to over a hundred types of sporting gear to wear)and take on the online leader boards, eager to rank at the number one spot. It supports touch and gyroscopic controls, as well as the classic circle pad buttons, so anyone can grab a copy and start playing!
