  1. I can't get over the look of the game. Even the feel and sounds of the players grunting, and the racket hitting the ball is just so realistic.
  2. 100
    It's fun, whether you're playing solo and trying to complete the Crazy Box-type mini games or going head-to-head in the four-player mode, and it will instantly become a party classic.
  3. Although almost ridiculously simple, "Virtua Tennis" is more addictive than chocolate-coated, sugar-frosted crack.
  4. 94
    One of the best single or multi player Dreamcast games out there, and yet another must have title.
  5. 92
    Graphically stunning, packed with features and playability out of the very top drawer.
  6. A thoroughly entertaining and addictive tennis title that also doubles as a poster child for high-res Dreamcast graphics.
  7. Gorgeous graphics, simple gameplay, and tons of multiplayer fun give this title legs like Steffi Graf's.

    I just recently purchased this game off ebay and can't put the controller down. It's like a drug, especially with friends around.

    This is a quality tennis game. The reality of form and shot production is uncanny. The variation in court surface selection, playing modes This is a quality tennis game. The reality of form and shot production is uncanny. The variation in court surface selection, playing modes (singles, doubles) take this a notch above the norm. The only thing holding this back from recieving a ten is the lack of top player selection. We need Agassi or Sampras, or at least more selection. Also -- why is Kafelnikov right handed? He's a lefty. This is a detail a high quality game should not miss. Play and enjoy. Expand

    Although it's a bit on the easy side, it's a great party game and the graphics are pretty incredible.
