  • Summary: Virtua Tennis more than lives up to its namesake and does an ample job of compacting Sega's Tennis 2K2 into a portable format.

  1. 100
    Far and away the best sports title to hit the GBA. [Nov 2002, p.68]
  2. The Dreamcast may be dead and buried but Virtua Tennis lives on in this essential GBA purchase. Excellent!
  3. 90
    By far, the finest tennis title on the GBA to date. It may not be a pretty rendition of the Dreamcast series, but it plays so well it's easy to forgive the somewhat clumsy character animation.
  4. While the game of tennis may seem simple from a glance, Sega really nailed the core intricacies in terms of giving the player the most amount of control possible without hampering any other aspect of the gameplay.
  5. Taken in isolation, it's easily the best handheld Tennis game.
  6. Preserves the original's emphasis on simplicity. It's well suited to the GBA's limited control options, yet it models the physics of tennis so well the depth it achieves is considerable.
  7. 70
    The four-player action makes this tennis game an absolute blast.
