    Virtua Tennis 4 is dependable and reliable. You know exactly what your getting. Unfortunately for Virtua Tennis it's becoming a bit standstill and not really doing anything, its the same stuff except just a different number on the end of the title.

You know exactly what your getting. Unfortunately for Virtua Tennis it's becoming a bit standstill and not really doing anything, its the same stuff except just a different number on the end of the title. As an arcade game it's always done what it has set out to do. Be fun and entertaining whilst maintaining the high standards that have made it the best tennis series around. Career Mode has been altered and freshened up but it isn't as addictive as previous outings and whilst the activities you play to improve yourself are always enjoyable you just feel that they are lacking in ideas certainly compared to TS4. For a simple exhibition with a friend Virtua Tennis is still great. And that's where it will always deliver. The one area where the game is arguably better than TS4 is its roster. Online is same old what you'd expect but thats not a bad thing! So the big question is Virtua Tennis stikk the number 1? Not a chance, this year that has changed. Top Spin 4 delivered the most authentic tennis outing to date and established itself as the grand slam champ and leaves Sega with work to do. If it's just an arcade fun approach your looking for then you won't go wrong but for real tennis fans all the appreciation will be shown towards 2K's offering this time around. Expand

    Virtua Tennis 4 has some great aspects to its gameplay. The arcade style on the court and humorous sound bytes from the players ensures some fun when whacking your balls back and forth with a friend.
    The 3D creates a new experience, showing that the future has some exciting things in store.

    As with the rest of Virtua Tennis' shtick it's a simple system that hides its complexity well. Along with an addictive, board game-style World Tour mode,it's hard not to recommend Virtua Tennis 4. Perhaps the stellar motion controls are relegated to throwaway mini-game, rather than being fully integrated. [June 2011 p 79]

    SEGA keeps the Virtua Tennis series alive with its 4th entry into mix, bringing along a bundle of upgrades and fresh game modes to keep us swinging away.

    Virtua Tennis 4 certainly offers gamers a lot of fun with its random selection of mini-games and off-beat career mode but there's definitely that more arcade feel to the game that may not provide as big a challenge for hardcore tennis fans.
