    Tennis is a glamorous and refined sport, and Virtua Tennis Challenge serves up a VIP pass to all of the action.

    Virtua Tennis Challenge doesn't reach a golden set standard, but despite heavy requirements it's still the Arcade title we've come to know and love.

    All the thrills and excitement of its console brothers, with surprisingly dependable controls. A lack of modes and almost useless multiplayer dampens the fun, though.

    Even without much real-life influence, Virtua Tennis Challenge accomplishes one key goal: portable tennis action. It may be pricier than most mobile games, but if you enjoy hitting the fuzzy green ball, it'll be well worth your time and cash.

    It's got a distinctive charm about it.

    Although it lacks official licenses from the ATP, it offers quite a compelling gameplay and enough control options to satisfy every player.

    The biggest challenge in this version of Virtua Tennis is working with the controls.

    I am pretty sure ive purchased every iOs tennis game since the app store was launched. This is the first truly good one. Good enough, in fact, that i no longer feel the need to play tennis on the PC. The career mode is excellent, qnd although I didn't care for the standard swipe control scheme, I was able to switch to a virtual controller. Its perfect, and very fluid / responsive Expand
