  1. The best news is that Outlaw Tennis is, at its core, a fantastic tennis game, so when you eventually turn off all the "outlaw flavor" you still have a remarkably fun, challenging, and somewhat realistic tennis game to occupy countless gaming hours, both solo and online.
  2. The characters are wacky and funny, the game play smooth (although doing specials seemed fiddly) and really there isn't much to complain about.
  3. Leave this series alone now and let it finish on a middle ground – don't let it fall further down.
  4. Takes the staid and often haughty overtone of its titular sport and gussies it up with breast implants and potty humor.
  5. The other half of the Outlaw equation, the humor, left me cold. [Sept 2005, p.100]
  6. Sure, there are a number of gameplay problems at the core, but overall we rather enjoyed playing Outlaw Tennis.
  7. The humour is immature and unfunny to anyone over the age of 13 (which negates the game's 15+ age rating). The tennis is frustrating and flawed, and simply not up to the standards of the best of the genre.

    I'm not crazy about some of the low brow humour because it's so dumb at times, but this really is a good game. It's more fun I'm not crazy about some of the low brow humour because it's so dumb at times, but this really is a good game. It's more fun than Top Spin. Expand
