Mario Tennis Open - Unlockables?

Looking at the Cheats page, there are a lot of them. I was told this game was barebones. But why? How long does it take to unlock everything? I'm contemplating buying this game now that it's only 20 bucks. It's the only first party 3DS game I don't own besides Fire Emblem.

The unlockables are useless because Luigi is the best non-Mii character in the game. If you want anything better, put a Mii in literally any matching outfit/costume by playing mini-games, which are almost impossible to play anyway.

I don't like Mario Tennis Open.

The game is incredibly dissapointing. After a few hours of playing the tournaments the game basically boils down to playing the same three mini games over and over again to unlock all the gear. The gear itself is almost useless because its really difficult to compare gear (i.e. its almost impossible to do without really involving yourself in the game). Then theres the multiplayer which is downright atrocious. The different styles of play do not mix well at all and can leave certain control schemes overpowered by others. If its just 20 bucks and you want the "full collection" go ahead and get it. Its fun while youre still unlocking characters and starting to play the mini games. But the game quickly becomes ridiculously monotonous.

Want a good 3DS sports game? Get Mario Golf instead (but im guessing you have that already). Also, before you go wasting the 20 bucks on Tennis (to me its a waste because i loathe that tennis game) save up a little more and get Fire Emblem.

Just won the auction. Got this for $12 shipped, brand new. A fair price!
