    It's a massive improvement over VT3, but not a patch on the latest Top Spin 3. The "career" mode feels tacked on at the last minute, however it is really easy to pick up and play, but does get devilishly harder on you as you progress.

    Good family entertainment, pick up and play, no huge amounts of skill required, the kinect feature is a joke and the only real way to play is with the controller...disappointing as my kids wanted it for the kinect feature.
    online is a bit hit and miss, can be very laggy and unresponsive in comparison to arcade/exhibition/sp mode, overall though it's fun to play which is the most important

    At the end of the day, Virtua Tennis 4 is a game that trades largely on its lineage-but given that this game, like VT2009, continues to muck up a really good formula, it's hard to imagine gamers continuing to be forgiving of Sega's recurring missteps.

    For what it's worth, however, this is a fantastic game by every stretch of the imagination. Those who have waited 4 years for another installment will not be disappointed.

    Given such a large gap between Virtua Tennis 3 and this entry, you would hope that we'd see considerable improvements and a nearly flawless experience. Instead, we have yet another mediocre sports game with a bit of squandered potential.
