  1. Despite Outlaw series games not being exactly the model of authenticity when it comes to sports games, they know how to make a fun game. Tennis is no exception. The issues I take with the repetitive animations, sound and the ball physics, are really minor when it comes to these games.
  2. Outlaw Tennis went well above and beyond my expectations. This is a game that is packed with quality play and plenty of adult humor. I was glad to see that the focus was not simply on digital T&A, but about making parodies of types of people we find within our pop culture.
  3. The online features, variety of characters and deep play modes makes Outlaw Tennis a keeper -- especially at its cheap price.
  4. There always seems to be a slight disconnect between the controls and the onscreen action, making it difficult to really get your timing down. [Oct 2005, p.106]
  5. The other half of the Outlaw equation, the humor, left me cold. [Sept 2005, p.100]
  6. What’s really shocking, though, is that it plays as well as a regulation tennis game. It has the same responsive controls, and even lets you play online doubles with your friends—assuming they're more likely to chug a Country Club than apply to one.
  7. Worst of all, the gameplay is annoying, with shabby controls and an oddly high difficulty curve. [Oct 2005, p.92]
