    The game is fun. However it might be too much arcade for some people, including me. The ball never hits the net during a rally, it never falls on the line, it almost never goes out of court. These are very important aspects in any tennis game. Also keep in mind that with no multiplayer mode, you will perhaps get stuck with the CPU, which i found very easy to beat even on the hardest The game is fun.

Graphics are nice to look at, although some player faces aren't that accurate. The create a player mode is one of the worst i have seen in a while, which is really annoying if you are playing the tour mode. If you can deal with the game's limitations, and you prefer arcade gameplay, you will perhaps have fun with it. Otherwise give Top Spin 2 a try. Expand

    decent graphicaly, but empty in terms of gameplay.

    It has lots of the stars of the sport in it yes, but the game lacks atmosphere and depth. The create a player is really lacking in and depth much like the arcade style gameplay. You cant preform dropshots, even when you max out the service bar you cant seem to ace anyone. Rallys can go on for ever but yet seem completley boring., the

    Rallys can go on for ever but yet seem completley boring., the play lacks any of the real flow and feel of real life tennis.

    The training games are fun but somewhat silly - c'mon dodging giant tennis balls while picking up fruit!

    Its ok for a quick fun blast if your the type of person that dosent want to invest more than 5 minutes into getting used to a game but if your a tennis buff looking for a tennis simulator then look for Top spin Tennis or its sequal.

    Hopefully soon there will be Top spin 3 for PC too.

    This one for me falls well short

    Not so good for the eyes than top spin but more simple to play I like a lot.

    Graphic is fine, it don't need frostbite, its just tennis. But every move is same, and on PC serving is parody...
    Good game, for 30 minutes, the you turn it off, and turn on 3 months later again for 20 minutes...

    Se podría considerar el mejor Virtua Tennis junto al 2.
    Es el que tiene la jugabilidad más completa, aunque con sus ciertos errores.
    El arcade es difícil en modo muy difícil, la jugabildad es buena y la banda sonora genial.
    Calificación: 75/100.

    It straddles the abyss between simulation and arcade, and it does it seemingly effortlessly. [May 2007, p.78]

    It does what it does well, but tennis sim it ain't. [May 2007, p.67]

    All good, except for one very stupid omission - no online multiplayer. [June 2007, p.72]
