I have a feeling that many people will pick up this game and be initially frustrated. They may feel the game is not completely tracking their movements. Or that when they try to swing in a particular way it is not reflected in the game. Now, this game is by no means perfect, and some of these frustrations are real.

But I strongly urge you to keep with it and not give up. If you spend some time with the game you will quickly realize how brilliant and addicting it is. The point where you come to this realization will likely be when you are able to achieve a degree of consistency in your swing and direct the ball where you want it to go, and I provide tips for this at the end of this review.

I will say this - above all else this game is very, very fun. Some of the rallies you will have with your friends or while playing online will stick in your mind long after the match has been won or lost. You will agonize over missed shots. You will cherish your winners. In that sense this game captures the essence of what is great about playing tennis.

It is an addictive game that will keep bringing you back to play it until your arm hurts (and trust me, if you are not used to the exercise your arm will hurt).

As I said, this game is not perfect. The career mode should be more elaborate. Online play, great in itself and usually lag free, lacks tournament modes. And even when you have mastered the controls you will at times be frustrated. But that's tennis.

Here are some hints for achieving good control in Grand Slam Tennis using Wii Motion Plus.

I've had Grand Slam Tennis and Virtua Tennis for one day and played them about 3 hours each. I've played tennis for years. I'm using Motion Plus.

Here's a comparison.

Tournament mode: Grand Slam wins by a kilometer --- In Grand Slam Tennis you play the Grand Slam tour and do some exhibitions. No stupid "shopping races" like in Virtua Tennis. This part of Virtua Tennis is highly annoying. I don't want to run around a court on a shopping spree and jump through arbitrary hoops in order to play in a tournament. This part of Virtua was so annoying it took Virtua from 5 stars to 4 stars for me. Grand Slam exhibitions / mini games are fun while Virtua is annoying. On the other hand, you can just press "play" and choose tournament in Virtua but the experience is not as full as Grand Slam.

Graphics: Virtua Tennis wins by a meter. The crowd is better and players movement's are much more realistic to the player's style. Grand Slam's graphics are more cartoonish but with the announcers and the angles and replays it is more like participating in a match while you watch it on television... the presentation is better but does not make up for the better Virtua movement and detail.

Speed of play: Virtua Tennis by a kilometer. Your character moves at a more realistic pace and the match is just a more entertaining, fast action pace.

Controls: Grand Slam by a centimeter: Grand Slam's controls are easier to master. Virtua's controls have less tolerance for error. You MUST complete the training coach with Virtua to master any advanced shots, even then the drop shot leaves me wanting to smash the controller! Grand Slam's topspin, backspin, and fade are more true to real tennis, while Virtua's serve, lob, and dropshot are much more true.

I bought Tiger 10 w/ Motion Plus and Grand Slam the same day (yesterday). This is a review for advanced players. If you play w/ Motion Plus and the nunchuck...and you put in a couple of hours...it will click for you. Many of these reviews are clearly from people that are expecting an improved Wii Sports Tennis experience. It's not that...and that takes some getting used to. And many people (in the other reviews) seem to think Motion Plus will translate 1x1 in every scenario...when you are not controlling the player movement...that won't happen and it makes sense that it won't happen. Before using the nunchuck, I found myself complaining about the same thing...I go forehand and the game goes backhand...then I began to realize that the position of the player in relation to the ball directly affects what swinging options are available, makes sense right? Once I got used to controlling the player with the nunchuck I was responsible for everything and was having a blast. It took me a couple of hours to win my first match on easy mode. Found myself at 6 to 6 against one of the pros and sweating my butt off...but smiling the entire time. Played online, flawless framerate. The game has a great rewards system and great career mode to keep you going as a single player. As far as multi goes...I haven't played the party modes yet. But overall, this is a very deep and rewarding game if you put the time in...it's not Wii Sports and it's not casual (if you want real control). Enjoy.

A little about myself, I had never played real tennis before and I'm not that good at Wii Sports Tennis either.

I had spent over 8 hours playing Grand Slam Tennis. Here is my experience so far.

For the first few hours, I felt like the game was broken, that wii motion plus doesn't work. There were so many times I felt like throwing the control into my TV because I lost so many matches due to the fact that my player was either out of position or did not swing at all.

But as I played more and more, things just starting to click. I realized that unlike Wii Sports Tennis, when you play Grand Slam Tennis with Motion Plus, little things matter, you have to pay attention to the way you hold the control "all the time", your form, your arm motions ... You have to actually swing correctly, you can't just flick your wrist back and forth and expect to hit winners.

While I was playing, if I concentrated and paid attention to my form, my swing, then more often than not, my player did exactly what I wanted it to do. But sometimes, when my arm was tired and I reversed back to "Wii Sports wrist flick mode" I started to hit the ball out of bound or not hitting the ball at all.

So in summary, if you want an experience like Wii Sports Tennis, just play without the Motion Plus. However, if you are willing to learn a newer, more accurate form of tennis game, then you will be greatly rewarded for your time. After the initial frustration, it's really fun.

Update:
Played for another 4 hours tonight. All I can say is the level of control is just simply amazing with Motion Plus. I feel like I'm in total control now. This game should be rated 10 stars not 5.
Also, I forgot to mention, I had been playing without the nunchuck.
