Tennis Manager 2022 is an interesting and very well-done sports management game. There's a lot of depth to it with the only drawback being that it might be put into the niche or fan-boy category of PC sports games. If you aren't into tennis, then Tennis Manager might not be for you. However, for pure sports manager game enthusiasts like myself that enjoy learning about unfamiliar and different sports this title is a worthwhile addition to any manager game collection. The game contains many of the sport’s major equipment producers along with some tennis specific jargon and references that identify tennis as a unique sport. The major stars in the sport are present but due to possible trademark infringements the names aren't spelled like they are in real life. That's okay because I still give Tennis Manager 2022 two thumbs up.
Tennis Manager 2022 is a solid entry into the sports management genre, but it needs to refine its mechanics to become a good fantasy fulfillment vehicle for tennis fans. The development team has put in the effort to gather and present information in useful ways, giving gamers plenty of ways to tweak tactics and motivate their players. Tournaments are well simulated, with stars reacting naturally when they hit a good or bad streak.
The Rebound CG production really has a lot in common with the Football Manager series. For now TM 2022 is a decent managerial simulation, quite satisfying for tennis lovers but still characterized by a large room for improvement. User interface, game playback, licenses and bugs are to be fixed to make the experience more accessible and less chaotic. In short, the way to go to reach very high peaks is still quite long, but it cannot be denied that the team has taken the right path.
Tennis Manager 2022 is a step forward, although it still has a lot of room for improvement and is far from other sports management simulators on the market. You will love it if you are passionate about real sport.
Performance wise, I encountered several crashes and the game sometimes freezes for a couple of second when I enter a match. These crashes and freezes occurs randomly throughout my playthrough so I cannot tell you exactly what is causing the crashes.
