Tennis World Tour 2 offers rich content and lots of licensed athletes; however, the game has a steep learning curve that, along with its technical issues, make it suitable strictly for fans of the genre.
Tennis World Tour 2 isn’t necessarily the most robust or enticing offering when it comes to tennis games, but it’s one of the only simulation games out there. If you’re a die-hard tennis fan, it’s worth a shot to see if it can keep your attention. But casual fans should consider looking elsewhere.
Tennis fans are so limited these days, and Tennis World Tour 2 does not deliver enough to consider it a great game. Too many graphical glitches, inconsistencies across the board in terms of gameplay and the wider matchday details, copy-pasted player physiques and complete lack of personalised shots, a shoehorned mid-match card feature that only distracts - oh, and locking major tournaments and courts behind day one DLC are just some of the reasons Big Ant Studios double faults with this one. With more time, care, and no doubt a bigger budget, something decent could arise, because the makings are there, but patches might not be enough, and focus now might be better spent on a hopeful third game.
A highly unsatisfying and directionless tennis game, with an abysmal character creator and career mode. Steer well clear and buy AO Tennis 2, bizarrely made by the exact same team responsible for this monstrosity.
Tennis World Tour 2 tries to copy the look and feel of other sports titles but ends up feeling lazy. There is no reason for its character creator, or the career mode, to be as shallow as they are. It also doesn't make sense to lock players into a single control scheme that causes problems, and the ball being hard to see in a game that is all about hitting it back and forth with accuracy is a huge misstep. This game could have been so much more, but Tennis World Tour 2 ends up being a disappointment, first and foremost.
After today's update I am suddenly enjoying this game much more. I'm using the "Very Easy" difficulty level and am now able to play long rallies and be competitive, something that seemed impossible before the latest update. It took me several games to finally realize how to return my opponents' shots by aiming far to the left or right, hitting lines for winners. This game has evolved from incredibly frustrating to lots of fun. The only issue, very minor, that I encountered today is right-handed players are left-handed in the scenes shown just before serving.
I really like playing Top Spin 4, from several other tennis games, I feel Tennis world tour is the successor to Top spin series, but with fast gameplay and some other bad things, so in conclusion I quite enjoy this game, its okay after all
Enjoying it, as a big tennis fan and the understanding that this isn’t a big budget games studio, there’s a good amount of attention to detail, customisation and the graphics are fine. Can’t seem to play as Djokovic but….I’m not complaining ;-)
The gameplay takes time to learn. Even after finishing the tutorial. Some blame the controls, and whilst I did get an input delay issue with one match, it doesn’t seem to affect too much. People might not realise but you need to understand how to play-it’s hard to hit down the line - you’re not going to do that all the time and if it’s not a winner you’re potentially getting yourself into trouble. Aces do seem a little hard to score though!
Not worth more than 10 bucks.
The game has very little character personalization, the career mode is a joke and the cards? Come on! It's a shame!
I am very disappointed. The gameplay just ****. The players play like they are Roger Federer in his prime. Even in the 'Normal' mode, it's outrageous.
The graphics are not terrible, though.
Tennis World Tour 2 is a failure in every aspect.
The game modes are bare bones and uninspired - they get boring in less than an hour. The roster feels limited and none of the players have any personality. The graphics look like they came straight out of the early PS3 era and movement is clunky, buggy and inconsistent.
All of that could have been overlooked to an extent if the gameplay was good, if it felt like you were actually playing tennis... but it doesn't. Tennis World Tour 2's gameplay is just horrific. Shots are inconsistent, aces are impossible, very often your player wont even react and he'll just look at the ball as it passes by. Difficulty means nothing as a match on "Very Easy" can be much harder than one on "Expert" and the lack of licensed tournaments makes this nightmare **** feel even more bottom of tha barrel.
Tennis World Tour 2 feels like a game that is a few months away from pre-alpha and the fact Sony considered this would be an ok addition to PS+ is an insult to PlayStation players.
SummaryThe market-leading tennis game is back. Play as the world's top players, master each surface, perfect your game and strive to dominate the world circuit. Choose from multiple game modes, with singles and doubles games, local and online.
