About Judy

As WP's managing editor, I edit review and preview articles, attempt to keep up with the frantic pace of Rainier's news posts, and keep our reviewers on deadline, which is akin to herding cats. When I have a moment to myself and don't have my nose in a book, I like to play action/RPG, adventure and platforming games.

The keys to winning a tennis match in the real world are fast footwork, consistency and a wicked backhand. Enter the realm of Mario Power Tennis, a remake of the original GameCube game, and the secret to winning includes Power Shots like Mario's Iron Hammer, Luigi's Squeaky Mallet and Peach's Super Peach Spin.

Thrills abound in the new Mario Power Tennis video game, launching today. Up to four players can compete on a single screen as they show off thunderous backhands or return soaring lobs. From Mario™ to Bowser, each character has unique offensive and defensive Power Shots that turn a friendly game of tennis into mania on the court.

Tennis purists can play a standard game without fancy trick moves, a feature that also lets novices learn the basics before moving on to more advanced action. A series of mini-games and special modes let players hone their tennis skills while competing in a variety of crazy challenges.

Mario Power Tennis, Rated E for Everyone, sells at an MSRP of $49.99.
