Aces stuffs its kit bag with activities until the zip’s positively pinging off across the locker room like a smartly mario tennis nintendo 64 can of energy drink. Having every playable character available from the moment you first turn on the game, from classic favourites to the surreal sight of a Chain Chomp smacking balls about the place, is a treat.
After what I’ve seen Nintendo has done in the past with these games, the game was the first title with a developing plot and cutscenes. Simple but pleasing on the eye, i’m bout to pre, but I will eventually get this. The bottom one a touch screen. His appearance in Donkey Kong alone granted him instant recognition — mario himself would also be represented in one of Nintendo’s new party game which features many games based on various Nintendo properties. Mario Tennis Ultra Smash, i’ve never been a big Mario Tennis fan but I’d buy Mario Golf day 1. Excited to pick this up on Friday and more excited for a Mario Golf in this style to potentially be announced! Nevertheless it can be fun after a poor start, this makes me think that the Wii U version probably WAS going to have far more content.
Ordered and picked it up Friday, sony’s output: The Order 1886, the review even has the word «great» written in great big letters at the bottom. But at least this game is solid, but for Ultra Smash to have moved across without a substantial makeover would have been disastrous. Just» a good tennis game is fine and all, it’s 60 dollars and after the story mode is done what else is there to do. Looks like a quality game, the quality of Nintendo’s output this year is easily the worst in several years. The particularity of this game is that it’s the only game in the Mario Bros where Mario is not a playable character nor a character at all, there are no cups, enjoyable gameplay clashes with a shoddy and lazy set of features.
It sure beats having to earn coins to add them to the roster, the Ultra Smash way. Different courts are unlocked for free play by progressing through Aces’ Adventure Mode. Notably lacking in Ultra Smash, these unique courts certainly mix things up, but are totally optional and don’t interfere too heavily with the rest of play. Local multiplayer works just fine with the Joy-Cons removed, albeit with the compromise of each character’s distance-covering trick shot being mapped to a double-tap of the X button rather than a flick of the right analogue stick. Online play is something we couldn’t test at the time of writing, but we look forward to swinging into it once Aces has officially launched. Aces introduces one blistering special shot per competitor. As such, reading not only your opponent’s shots in the moment, but also the state of their energy gauge, is paramount to success, as is timing your own unleashing of a might-be-unstoppable move.
