    If you're after a tennis fix with Move and can't hold out for Virtua Tennis 4, this $30 title is a lot of fun and has high production qualities. A word of warning though: The game runs in 1080p at 60fps, but there's noticeable screen tearing.
  2. While the different games offer some variety, there's simply not enough to differentiate between them.
  3. Racquet Sports attempts to introduce fans of table tennis and badminton to the Move, but falls short by providing less than appealing gameplay. The graphics are better than you'd expect from a Wii game, but this is on the PS3, after all.
  4. Maybe Ubisoft has hurried up to have it ready for PlayStation Move launch, and it has resulted in a below-avarage control, missing the opportunity to give players a lesson of tennis, badminton and the rest of the sports included in the game. What a pity.

    If you really, really want to play tennis with your Move controller, Racket Sports works well enough to fulfill that function. But think carefully about whether that experience is worth £25 (it isn't).
  6. Lack of precision, lack of punch, lack of sensations… Whatever sport you're choosing, the game hardly manages to transcribe the movements made with the PS Move.
  7. Avoid like you would a family holiday to Nudefest 2010. [Issue#51, p.110]

    Simply put, this game is not worth your money.
