GAME, SET, MATCH! READY TO HAVE A BLAST?
Super Tennis Blast has a pretty decent amount of content for a relatively simple game, though it can understandably feel a little repetitive after a while. If a pure tennis game is what you’re looking for, this title gets the job done well enough. While I’m not a fan of its lack of motion controls and the stiff-looking animations, it’s still a neat little sports title that I had fun playing.
There are hundreds of worse tennis games than Super Tennis Ball, but why really choose this over the few better ones. The gameplay is generally enjoyable, but a lack of something that could set it apart from the competition, and the overall feeling of repetitiveness you'll have to endure, make it a hard recommendation - at least at its current price. In other words: wait for a generous discount.
Much like Super Volley Blast, Super Tennis Blast is a very enjoyable arcade sports game that is a notch above comparable modern fare. It's still a little rough around the edges, but with strong multiplayer fundamentals and an engaging career mode, this is a tennis game that deserves a place on the Switch next to Mario Tennis Aces.
