Mario Hoops 3-on-3

PlatformNintendo DS

Year Released2006

We're actually kind of surprised it took Mario and the crew so long to take it to the hoop. But we didn't expect him to do it against Final Fantasy characters, who made appearances in this game. The controls for this title were simple and fun, and the graphics were friendly, but it just didn't really do it for us for some reason. Your opponents could easily be outmaneuvered and stripped of the ball and it just didn't have that Mario Strikers or Mario Superstar Baseball level of quality to it. It felt like a missed opportunity. But it wasn't bad. It was just okay.
