    The intuitive controls have been retained, but to enhance the original's sim-like feel, a slice button has been added and the serves are a little more difficult to perfect.

    Not only a game anyone can fall in love with but among the best titles I've played on the Dreamcast.
  3. Tennis 2K2’s solid gameplay and impressive presentation prove that the Dreamcast still has some steam behind it.
  4. Although the female players are an excellent addition, and the create-a-player is another good move, there are noticeable gaps in the lineup, including Sampras and Chang.
  5. As a sequel that improves on the original and gives experienced players a reason to shell out another $40, Tennis 2K2 is a smashing success. I think I just made a tennis pun, but I'm not sure.
  6. While the game offers improved graphics, an expanded roster of players, and tightened gameplay, the changes made may not be enough to seduce fans of the original Virtua Tennis.
  7. An incredibly complete sport simulation that captures, not only the heart of the sport, but also pays close attention to all of the little details that tennis fans love about the game.

    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 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
