    Despite being very improvable in all its aspects, Tennis World Tour is today the best realistic actual tennis game today. That doesn't mean that is better than Top Spin 4 (2011).

    This game has a quite solid foundation, although it’s clearly a game in progress. We believe it can be a great simulator, but at the moment it needs some work.

    After all these years of waiting, tennis fans deserved something better than this shallow and buggy pseudo-realistic sport experience.

    The 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.

    You 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.

    I 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.

I have to react as it comes, which to me is a breath of fresh air ... (except Legendary Federer needs a bit of tweaking) It is often said a game should be easy to learn and difficult to master.. Tennis world tour makes its first mistake in being difficult to understand through lackluster skill games that dont explain the mechanics enough(although the good players dont want them revealing the very fine details which will give us the slight edge in a game of tennis, but this game rewards the diligent that are willing to learn how to actually master it

    This game IS the true successor to Topspin, It feels like topspin except with the above mentioned improved AI.

    The negatives
    - some additional shot animations needed, need more backhand and forehand styles.
    - Atmosphere and commentary - need more lines and improvment
    - Ball sounds, should be fixed in a patch theyre a bit flat
    - I think the Fatigue mechanic in the game should be reworked if not removed.
    - More pro players and legends
    - Immersive online ranking system and tournaments ( Apparently this is coming.. so holding judgement)

    If you can look past its flaws - which is has AT THE MOMENT, this game has promise and potential even if it has not yet fully delivered yet. I recommend BUY: for the patient, WAIT, for the impatient.

    Finally a tennis game for PS4. Does this feel like a complete game, no. Does it need a number of patches, yes. Are the ground strokes there,Finally a tennis game for PS4. Does this feel like a complete game, no. Does it need a number of patches, yes. Are the ground strokes there, yes. I want more of everything, but there is a basis to build on. It is a solid first try and could be a great game given time and resources. Lots of them. Expand

    An utterly rancid game. We gave it a fair shot, playing multiple times over serveral days, and it was a consistently terrible experience. TheAn utterly rancid game. We gave it a fair shot, playing multiple times over serveral days, and it was a consistently terrible experience. The gameplay is just extremely bugged. The server serves from the wrong side. The commentary doesn't line up with the play whatsoever, no crowd sound, no control over shots as it defaults to slicing all the time. It is very annoying, as they cleary released it several months of development before it was ready. Expand

    Tennis fans deserve a better game.

    I 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
