  1. There's more than enough here to luv for Sega fans big and small. [Apr 2008, p.64]
  2. If you’re a fan of Sega though you’ll simply love what Sumo have done with Superstars and the online tennis matches will certainly keep you coming back for more once you have lapped up the Superstars mode.
  3. Sumo Digital managed to offer simple but well implemented gameplay. Some of the stages and mini-games are fun, even if it’s only for the nostalgic ride. But they don’t make up for the fact that we miss some more tennis matches. Anyway, if you ever dreamt of seeing the dwarf from Golden Axe in the same stage as Ulala and Amigo…you might as well give it a try. [Apr 2008]
  4. Sega Superstars Tennis is well-crafted, lovingly garish, and it plays a solid game. [Apr 2008, p.97]

    I guess at the end of the day, the new Beetle just served as a reminder of what a good car the Golf is. Content over style is the decider again for me.
  6. The game is even fun at first, until you hit the curse of repetitive gameplay and inconsistent AI, which is where it all falls apart.
  7. If the actual tennis wasn’t tedious and mundane, you wouldn’t have to ask whether Sega Superstars Tennis was just used to justify a reunion of Sega characters, or the other way around.

    A very good "fan service" game. If your a Sega fan (which i'am) and are familiar with these characters and their respective games thenA very good "fan service" game. If your a Sega fan (which i'am) and are familiar with these characters and their respective games then you'll have a great time with it. For those who arent, you'll still have a fun time with this solid tennis game. There are 10 "Sega themed" courts to choose from, with 8 hidden characters and a ton of music tracks to unlock. The gameplay modes are singles, doubles, tournaments, superstar (which in this particular mode consists of a HUGE amount of different objectives that you have to accomplish which unlocks the hidden content of the game) and ofcourse, online. All in all, another nice addition to my 360 library. Expand

    I bought this game for $20 thinking it would be a mediocre Mario Tennis knockoff. I had an extra 20 bucks, so why not? I have to say, I wasI bought this game for $20 thinking it would be a mediocre Mario Tennis knockoff. I had an extra 20 bucks, so why not? I have to say, I was pleasantly suprised. It is a fun game with a lot of minigames and pretty good gameplay. It does get repetitive at times but it is still entertaining and worth it if you find it for $20. Expand
