tennis sim has been out for about a year now, but is definitely worth
looking at. Newcomers to it may find it frustratingly difficult to begin
with, but it pays to continue as it is a decent game.
There are plenty of different modes you can play in this game, from the
tutorial mode (which is great when you are starting) to arcade and
exhibition mode, and through to the Pro Tour. When playing the game you can
play as one of many famous players e.g. Tim Henman and Lleyton Hewitt, and
what really sparkles is that there are so many different shots you can make,
while serves are very accurate. Controlling the players and shots is not
hard which also a plus point.
The courts are from the real courts of Wimbledon, Roland Garros, the
Australian Open and the US Open, while you can choose between surfaces of
hard, clay and grass. The player
are realistic and are really good; however the crowd
are not realistic but are acceptable.
As you can imagine with a tennis game, the sound is not the most important
feature, so while it canít compete with the latest games it is okay for this
Itís certainly worth the price you will find it in the shops for, given that
itís a year old, and hits a nice serve here. You could be playing this game
for months to come given all the different playing modes.
I think this is the best tennis sim yet and is worth buying. It can be hard
at times, but with loads of modes, prizes and playing options, itís
definitely worth a spin.
