“Nintendo and Camelot’s latest foray into the world of Tennis, Mario Tennis Aces, is pretty good, you’ll be pleased to hear. But if there’s one thing that does really bring the overall experience down a notch, it’s a difficulty spike here or there.

You’ll breeze through the optional mini-games, and the boss battles rarely put up much of a fight; ultimately being about pattern recognition. But there are two matches that will test your staying power to breaking point, and tempt you to break your Switch over your knee: the Blooper and Boom-Boom matches.”
