    What is all this about comparing. GTA is a brilliant game and I was really shocked by how well rockstar have made it. But back to the point. Virtua Tennis is resonable, the gameplay is quite good, excluding short tournaments, however the graphics let the game down. Graphics play quite a large part in this type of game and i was not impressed. Player choice is also disappointing. Why do What is all this about comparing.

At the end of the day i would put ur money elsewhere, you will get much more gamplay out of GTA and wont be bored easily. Expand

    Ok the gameplay and graphics are excellent the problem is the controls are faulty and the world tour mode gets boring very fast.

    Ok, it's a good virtua tennis game. But it's not a good PSP game. Why? Because: 1. it don't use Game Sharing, letting who buy it to play with other PSP users than don't own the game. 2. Don't have online play. So you can't play with other game owners not near you. So, its difficult to find someone to play with. And that's what sport games are better for.

And remember that PSP is a portable system designed with connectivity on mind from day one. After all , the game is OK, but play with the computer ever can be bored after some weeks. The graphics are Ok but could be better. I hope sometime we will have a tennis game with PSP players in mind, so give me the options to play easily with others. Expand

  1. This is a must-have title on PSP. World Tour shows how to combine sporting simulation with easy arcade style and accessibility. The Roger Federer of tennis games. [PSM2]

    Whilst Virtua Tennis: World Tour isn't exactly a new game, it's bloody good fun, and even better in wi-fi mode. One of the games of the [Australian] PSP launch.
  3. Minor quibbles aside, Virtua Tennis World Tour is close to a ten-out-of-ten game on the PSP, and in many respects it deserves top marks for being the best game on the system, and one of our most played games in 25 years of repetitive straining.
