    AO Tennis is the go-to tennis sim for Xbox One players right now. It's far from perfect, but it most importantly gets the on-court gameplay right thanks to physics and accuracy that can really be mastered by players. While presentation and a lack of major events leave a lot to be desired, the creation suite saves the game from being a lot less enjoyable.

    This is definitely a game I’d recommend to tennis fans, but I’ll finish up with a final piece of advice to Big Ant: get your licensing and your gameplay refined before you release a title, not in the weeks (or months) following it.

    The potential is there for AO Tennis to become a more competent game as development continues, but even after its first-week patches it feels like an early version months away from release. With a bare-bones presentation, easy-to-exploit AI and some weird remaining glitches, this is not the full five sets.

    AO Tennis’ erratic behaviour consistently breaks the illusion of watching or playing a game of tennis. Throw in an overall lack of features, and limited number of professional players outside of the cover stars, it’s hard to recommend this. Even to the most die hard of tennis fans. Morbid curiosity perhaps, just to see an example of a rushed, broken, and featureless game passing itself off as a premium sports experience.
