    Ugh, what a missed opportunity. Take one of the all time great sports games and add the women's draw and Patrick Rafter, what could possibly go wrong? This represents the rapid decline of once great developer am3( Hitmaker) terminating with the horrendous crazy taxi 3. For starters there's no Roddick or Federer, of Agassi and Sampras, though Sampras would apear in later Virtua TennisUgh, what a missed opportunity. Take one of the all time great sports games and add the women's draw and Patrick Rafter, what could possibly go wrong? This represents the rapid decline of once great developer am3( Hitmaker) terminating with the horrendous crazy taxi 3. For starters there's no Roddick or Federer, of Agassi and Sampras, though Sampras would apear in later Virtua Tennis games. Then there's the name change from Virtuia Tennis 2 to Tennis 2K insinuating that VC developed the game, as well as the fact that the female players looked considerably worse than their male counterparts, although this is forgivable considering the male models are reused from the 1st game and the short development time and work load. Am3 made VT2 and Crazy Taxi 2, Virtual On Force(arcade) and a port of Confidential Mission all came out in 2001. The cherry on top of this sundae is the terrible season mode. Ditching the 1st games mode where you chose a real tennis player and took on opponents who were much weaker than you in the beginning. Working you way up to the fiendishly difficult Arthur Ashe clone(grand master) while purchasing gear and clothes. Instead in Tennis 2K you create 2 characters, which is cool, except their much weaker than your opponents. Making this burn even worse is you have to switch back and forth to build up their stats making it take twice as long too level up. Agony. Stick with the much better prequel. Expand

    Not only a game anyone can fall in love with but among the best titles I've played on the Dreamcast.
