  • Summary: Sixteen fan-favorite SEGA characters from Sonic to NiGHTS are serving up fun in SEGA Superstars Tennis. Multiple madcap mini-games keep the party rolling and up to four friends can challenge each other in tournaments, exhibitions and unlockable special events. With hilarious cameos and comical guest umpires from SEGA's rich gaming history, this fun-filled tennis party promises to be a smashing good time for the whole family. Zany SEGA Characters with Superstar Abilities - Each of the 16 characters has their own superstar alter-ego, which gives them the winning edge on the court. Ten Fantastical Themed Courts - Guest umpires will supervise the action on a wide variety of colorful courts, from Sonic's lush Green Hill Zone to Ulala's galactic Space Channel 5 world, just to name a couple. Four Action-Packed Tournaments - As you slice your way through the competitive tournaments, you will unlock loads of bonus content. Classic Soundtrack - Faithfully recreated in full Dolby Digital 5.1, treasured SEGA tunes will entertain SEGA fans new and old. [Sega] Expand
Score distribution:
  1. Positive: 3 out of 19
  2. Negative: 2 out of 19
  1. Control issues aside, Sega Superstars Tennis is swimming in clever game references and should be fun for even a casual Sega fan. [Apr 2008, p.89]
  2. As a happy-go-lucky bit of racket-fuelled froth it'll keep you pleasantly diverted. [June 2008, p.70]
  3. Control issues and a general lack of cohesion prevent Sega Superstars Tennis from totally stealing the show on Centre Court, but it nevertheless remains a commendable purchase.
  4. Fun minigames, but these can't keep the rest of the game afloat. [June 2008, p.83]
  5. Merely average, but worth a look for Sega fanboys and girls.
  6. A few interesting mini games are not enough to carry this overall bland tennis game.
  7. I wonder what Segata Sanshiro would say if he were alive today. He was a commanding force who stood for playing hard until the score topped out or your fingers snapped under the pressure. More than that, he believed in the power of Sega, and so did I.
