Tennis World Tour - 15 Minutes Of Pre-Beta Gameplay
Jun 11, 2018The career mode is pretty entertaining but that's about the only quality of this game. Controlling your player leaves a lot to be desired for one. The lack of other modes, horrible commentary and the lack of an online option further put a final nail in the coffin; Tennis World Tour feels like an unfinished, rushed product. A shame.
Jun 4, 2018You could reductively describe tennis as a sport where you hit the ball back and forth. That would be unfair, since it strips away the strategy and physical feats – which is exactly what Tennis World Tour does to the sport. In real-life tennis, when you're so frustrated that you yell and throw your racket like a brat, it's decorous for your opponent to ignore you and tighten the strings on their racket. At least the A.I. in this game mutely shares a sense of embarrassment, hoping that the moment passes.
Jun 12, 2018I understand that release windows are a big thing that helps boost sales maximizes exposure. I’m sure that’s the reasoning behind Tennis World Tour’s release in this state because I can’t think of any other reason a developer would willingly release such a debacle.

The gameI wanted to wait a bit before writing a review for this game, in order to see if the studio was able to improve it... and they did! The game certainly is not TS 4 but it has its merit: the positioning, the timing, the fact that you (or the other player) can fault is very interesting. It is not a beautiful game as well, but I think it's correct.
Let's reckon that the studio + publisher are not the biggest ones, and they still need to work on the game (still waiting for that multiplayer mode...) but the game is fun to play (especially with a friend) and at least they tried.… Expand
May 25, 2018I have played this game for 3 days now and I have lot of mixed feelings. First of all , pre-ordering the legends edition and playing thisI have played this game for 3 days now and I have lot of mixed feelings. First of all , pre-ordering the legends edition and playing this game on launch-date I was really REALLY disappointed. The game in general does not feel like a finished product. OK, there is still no first day patch , but there is just to much lacking to be fixed with a fix. The audio is really bad . Gameplay audio is OK but the audience and commentary are just to shallow . Lot of points you don't hear any audience . John McEnroe keeps repeating a handful of remarks, it does not feel like somebody is commenting a real match.
When you have a LET during a serve you don't hear anything . This is strange because all the other calls are there.
The graphics are a real letdown... I looked up the top spin 4 streams on the PS3 and I am sad to say that that game looks way better. Sony should be ashamed to release this content for people who have bought the PS4 Pro and a 4K screen. I was playing God Of War before this and when I saw the first graphics it looked like I was playing a Dreamcast game. The animations look a bit goofy when you are walking / running. textures are really shallow. Animations of the crowd are really strange. I was playing a tiebreak and when my opponent was serving the audience was still clapping from the previous point.
Careermode is OK when you look at the level system and the ability to level up your player. You can use several coaches and agents to earn specific boosts. But compared to other sports games it looks again really shallow. For instance , when I play fifa18 " The Journey " you have a socialmedia system which gives you feedback on your peformances. In this game there is nothing except your Ranking that gives you feedback on your performances. Again , to shallow for a game lke this.
The player roster is also lacking major big players. With the Legend edition I got Federer , Agassi and Mcenroe. Where is Djokovic !? Ok , I will probably get additional players on the longrun but still , You want to play as Nadal as you play Federer am I right ?
So why not give this game a 1 or 2 like many other users ? Because if you play the game you will get some long rally's that will still get you that Top Spin feeling. I still enjoy myself when I play this game. It makes you realise what could have been ! Hopefully there will be a major patch really soon , but it cannot fix all the things that are wrong in this game.
I will NEVER pre-order a game ever again !!
Buy this game in maybe a few months in the PSN Store when it's like 19 euro's or something and you have all the DLC and patches. For now , stay away from this title ...… Expand
May 22, 2018A preemptive tl;dr: Do not buy this game. This is no Top Spin 4, or even Top Spin 2, or even Virtua Tennis.
After waiting 7 years for aA preemptive tl;dr: Do not buy this game. This is no Top Spin 4, or even Top Spin 2, or even Virtua Tennis.
After waiting 7 years for a follow-up to the standard-bearing Top Spin 4, I had very high hopes for this game. I quickly discovered it is an all-around disappointment in every way. I could go into the glaringly poor audio, the lack of licensed events and tournament sites, the stilted commentary...and I didn't even bother with the career mode, not to mention the LACK OF ONLINE PLAY UPON RELEASE. But by far the biggest problem is the gameplay, the most critical component of the game.
This game represents huge leaps backward on every aspect of Top Spin 4. The animations are clunky and drawn out, and not particularly specific to the unique players. This leads to difficult, awkward movement, both along the baseline and to the net. A HUGE pet peeve: if you stretch to hit a flat shot or a topspin shot, the game repeatedly defaults to sliced shots, or little chip shots. By far, most shots struck, regardless of the button you select, result in chips down the middle. This is wildly unrealistic and in direct opposition to the user's control and wishes. The spin varieties end up becoming meaningless, as everyone simply chips the ball back and forth repeatedly (and the spins don't seem to impact the opposing player's reply shot). The rallies are repetitive and boring.
The AI player wanders into "no man's land" (the large rectangle behind the service boxes) to return all shots consistently--another massive no-no in tennis, and another thing that most people would notice after watching a pro match for ten minutes. This means that timing seems irrelevant--you have no idea where to go to get the best strike on the ball. Sometimes players rip a shot into the corner with the tiniest racket movement right off the bounce, other times they don't swing at all.
The players may as well all be the same, as they all play the same. You don't get a feel for Federer's silky movement and forehand, the weight of Wawrinka's shots, McEnroe's impeccable volley, etc. etc. They might as well all be the same avatar. Top Spin 4's brilliant combination of precision shots (made with a simple tap of the button) and power shots (made by holding the button), which equipped players with full control of their avatar and allowed them to maximize the unique strengths of their selected players, are ditched in favor of a confusing mix of the two--again, with little measurable feedback to know what shot you hit and when it is best.
Serving is sensitive and it seems users have little control over power and placement.
Some of the animations are downright embarrassing; at least one Twitter user posted an image of a ball fully one to two feet behind a player, followed by another frame of the ball being returned, without *at all* being struck by the avatar. There are also framerate issues--unacceptable for a game that isn't exactly too sophisticated visually.
Dear 2K/Sony: Please port Top Spin 4!!!… Expand

Sep 8, 2019I just played this game after months of not playing and I was quickly reminded why I don't play it. I absolutely HATE THIS GAME!!!! Why isI just played this game after months of not playing and I was quickly reminded why I don't play it. I absolutely HATE THIS GAME!!!! Why is it that the AI can basically return every ball making the rallies unusually long? Why is it that my character stops going for the ball causing me to lose the point ? Why is it that this game is newer than top spin tennis 4 but yet top spin is better in every way? Don't water your money on this game it completely sucks. Not to mention it wasn't complete when it first released and in my opinion it's still not done.… Expand
