    Virtua Tennis 4 comes as a spectacular mix of strengths and weaknesses, a title that Dreamcast nostalgics will surely enjoy. The fact is it doesn't have what it takes to compete with Top Spin 4, which has brought the genre to new levels, especially in terms of realism and depth. A good fourth episode, definitely, but the series desperately needs some major improvements.

    The right game for beginners: uncomplicated and remarkably entertaining tennis. Just press start, lean back and have fun.

    SEGA could have used its money and influence to elevate Virtua Tennis to the level of EA's FIFA franchise, but, judging by the lack of tangible progress in this installment, I guess SEGA just doesn't care.

    It's nothing close to a serious tennis simulator, but it's packed with so much fun that you simply don't care. [Sept 2011, p.91]

    Virtua Tennis keeps its arcade style but unfortunately it soon turns into a spiritless stereotype play. [Issue#207]

    Good work on graphics though game-play is quite poor. easy to finish.
    Better graphics than top spin. Player is quite sluggish at times,

    This game has great graphics but has some down falls, Lets start with Character Selection there is not many people in this game like Blake isThis game has great graphics but has some down falls, Lets start with Character Selection there is not many people in this game like Blake is missing few others. Also the game is missing a lot of mini games could be they need unlocking.Main menu is amazing graphics are amazing lets talk about online play, People are so desperate for a game online you get pros with F5 playing people with G1 even when you make a club house that says Beginners welcome. I can see modding coming in here to update the game and make the online experience better as p2p does lag, Also playing online games people tend to go corners and that's it leaving you in the dust since most cant play mini games or suck at them, Also anyone higher than G goes corners on them cause the G level people can run that fast online should have a limit and a rank/level block on club houses so only G1 can enter a G1 club house single player will be all for unless I play a friend I know and I know he is my level and its a fair game. With better online play we would rate this higher but for now we give this 8/10. Expand

    The game is truly disappointing. It's a miss when it comes both to the arcade and simulation. The "casual" difficulty is a joke. Mini gamesThe game is truly disappointing. It's a miss when it comes both to the arcade and simulation. The "casual" difficulty is a joke. Mini games are boring. Controls are like for 5 year old you don't even have to be close to the ball to hit it. Career mode as a board game seems interesting at the beginning but turns out to be another joke (you'll understand when you'll miss two big events in a row). Music sux it's simply annoying (mostly). BTW: a new shirt costs more than hiring an agent for a week; your player ALWAYS makes the same moves entering the court, after the match (booring) etc. The only nice thing are game graphics and smooth gameplay. Unfortunately it all feels terribly empty. I'm going back to Hot Shots Tennis: Get a Grip on my PSP as it's way much entertaining and demanding than this. Expand

    Lo positivo que rescato es la banda sonora.
    Recomiendo no ir por este para ir directamente a Virtua Tennis 3. Es increíble lo mal hecho que está el juego.
