Just got it and had a few sets on it and so far it's looking a very good game. Power moves can slow down the flow of the game, but I'm growing a liking to them. Anyone elses thoughts?

It addressed some of the issues but created a host of new ones.

Samey environments, that terrible rock soundtrack, too many combo's in the fighting system... etc... etc...

I found P.O.P 2 really good. Its a lot darker and it has lost a lot of its charm, but many of the predecessor's flaws have been addressed brilliantly.

As for Camelot and their sports titles, I have always found them very enjoyable, but Mario Power Tennis looks a bit messy. Mario Golf GC was great in my opinion, but it got SO boring after a while.

Been playing this a lot multiplayer wise. Its brilliant but I'm dissapointed with the lack of a two-player doubles Tournie. I was looking forward to this.

Don't bother with the new Prince.
Really, really sucky.

Well, quite good and then really, really sucky for a long time and endlessly irritating. And then quite good again.

No, the reviews I've read say it's near perfect.

Beautiful, fantastic gameplay, only ruined by some gimmicks and these power shots, that can be turned off for multiplayer anyway.

I haven't seen a bad review, at all.

Nah, Mario Golf was rubbish.

Power Tennis reviews aren't that good, but most of them say it's a little too much like the 64 version, which I haven't played. I'll probably pick it up someday anyway.
