  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. For the most part, however, Outlaw Tennis manages to pull off something I didn't think it could do: it blends goofball antics and serious tennis kind of nicely.
  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. It's not as refined nor as fresh as the previous games in the series, but it's okay for a few larfs. However if you're looking for a quality quirky tennis game, "Mario Power Tennis" should still be your first choice, with "Top Spin" ranking as the current "real" tennis benchmark to beat.

    The problem is, this disc probably won't offend anyone other than Hillary Clinton and it won't titillate anybody over the age of 12. Indeed, playing the game is like watching a third grader make farting noises: Both the game and the kid are trying like crazy to be offensive, but all they really want is a little attention.
