    This game is broken. I don't understand why reviewers disagree with my opinion. The controls make the game impossible to play. You have to have the Wii Remote at precisely the right angle, as the game makes it difficult to switch to your forehand. When you swing the Wii Remote, the game is cruel and unforgiving. I wish I hadn't wasted my money on this game.

    The hardest thing about this game is by far and large adapting to the controls. I'm a very avid tennis player and fan of professional tennis, and I have to say from life experience that this is the most accurate tennis game I've ever played. The game advises to use slow and easy full swings (using the Wiimote Plus), and that takes some getting used to, but once you start to do it consistently you'll be able to plan your shots with remarkable precision. It is very important to return to a ready stance (as if holding the racket up in front of you) and keep the direction of your hit aimed at the sensor bar for the game to accurately pickup your movements. You can't play as if you're on a full size court. Instead, I played as if the length of my TV was the size of the singles court (22-inch) with the length of the TV case it stands on as the net length and baseline. At that point it became very simple to hit early when aiming left or hit later when aiming right. Every slice, topspin, flat shot, and degree of speed started registering completely naturally as I am used to hitting on the real court. However, even with that accuracy nailed down, you can definitely expect the game AI to make you work for every point, making every match very rewarding. I highly recommend any tennis fan to give this a try, and commit to the practice and experimentation required to get comfortable with the controls. It's well worth the effort! Expand

    The motion plus controls work about 90% of time, provided you return your Wii remote(ie: your racket) to the center position after each swing. There a few times where the games thinks you're performing a backhand instead a forehard and occassionally your player will stand still even after you've swung. But overall, aiming and spinning the ball is generally accurate and mostly importantly, enjoyable with the motion plus. The game can be played without the motion plus but control over the racket is drastically decreased. The online and offline options are fairly good. Being able to have 2 players go online together (such as in Mario Kart) is also a nice bonus. It's not a great sports game but it is the fairly good one that justifies the purchase of a Wii. With the Wiimotion plus, gameplay wise, no other sports games can compare. Expand

    Grand Slam Tennis is a very great sports tennis game though some of the design of the players do not seem like you're really in the tennis opens. The game has great controls but the other background characters are basically stick people and they stay there forever

  1. To sum it up, EA Sport’s Grand Slam Tennis is definitely one of the best sport games that we have played on the console, thanks to Wii MotionPlus.
  2. Grand Slam Tennis is fun, but it’s hard to master for beginners. Wii MotionPlus works very good and gives the game an extra touch.
  3. Grand Slam Tennis is a great tennis simulation. Probably the Wii Motion plus does not shows its real potential, but this product is perfect for tennis lovers, thanks to the big variety of shots, the large number of game modes and a perfect online support.
