Dino Galaxy Tennis Review (Nintendo Switch OLED)

In our Dino Galaxy Tennis Review, we take on the role of a dinosaur, whose dream is to win the Galactic Tennis Tournament. To reach the grand final, we will have to visit 5 planets and defeat their leaders, with every victory confirmed by a unique badge. This will not only bring you closer to the final but will also unlock special abilities that become useful in future matches. With the help of your mentor and special practices, you will be able to improve your results between tournaments. Throughout the story, you will also encounter a cheating opponent, which needs to be eliminated in a match.

Dino Galaxy Tennis takes the PONG gameplay and adds a series of twists, for beginners you are on a planet so your movement is radically different. They put in a story mode which is where you play by Tennis rules by which I mean it’s split into sets and winning rounds. Every now and then you may unlock a bonus game mode type but it’s basically unchanged. The vs mode is pretty straightforward and allows you to edit the game rules, it works well especially with the younger crowd and finally, the real meat of the game is the challenges. Weird name choice as it’s just a set of four game variations that you can play forever, it has its own Co-op and solo leaderboards so it has replayability but only locally. The game could have benefited from some online concoctions but as it is, Dino Galaxy Tennis is a good if somewhat limited local multiplayer blast.

Gaming since the Atari 2600, I enjoy the weirdness in games counting Densha De Go and RC De Go as my favourite titles of all time. I prefer gaming of old where buying games from a shop was a thing, Being social in person was a thing. Join me as I attempt to adapt to this new digital age!
