    Best tennis game on the PS2. Gameplay was very realistic and smooth. Graphics were good as well. Plus there are quite a few real top players which feature in the game which is an added bonus. Overall an extremely fun game, especially if you have someone to play with/against.

    This is the best and most realistic tennis game yet! Superb gameplay and very enjoyable! By the way, you can choose BETWEEN Mission Mode (has turning points) *OR* Normal Mode (it plays as you would expect) for the Pro Tour Career Mode. In Normal Mode, you play the match normally as you would expect, with no turning points. Just change it in the 'Settings' menu.

    More realistic and less 'arcadey' than Virtua Tennis 2. SCT2 is enormous fun and has great depth with its intuitive controls, ball control and gameplay. The best tennis game yet for true fans of the sport.

    Much better than Smash Court Pro Tennis 1 (with it's incredibly hard learning curve) - this one gives you more control over the placing of the ball,and you need to develop your technique to stack up the wins.It's the most ATP-Official title around.Very good as a multiplayer.Make sure you check out Virtua Tennis 2 first though - it's hard to pick between these two (I'd Much better than Smash Court Pro Tennis 1 (with it's incredibly hard learning curve) - this one gives you more control over the placing of the ball,and you need to develop your technique to stack up the wins.It's the most ATP-Official title around.Very good as a multiplayer.Make sure you check out Virtua Tennis 2 first though - it's hard to pick between these two (I'd still probably go for Virtua Tennis 2 as the best - it was even better on the Dreamcast!).Roll on Wimbledon !

  1. The creative Pro Tour Mode, visuals, and timed button gameplay are highlights. Though you’ll probably want to fast forward past the limiting pro player controls and dull Pro Tour AI.

    This is just a great all-around tennis game. [July 2004, p.78]
  3. A giant leap ahead of its predecessor. It looks and feels much better than the original.
