Could have been great
on October 6, 2012
Standard level up style tennis game. Some cool mini games, But World Tour is ridiculously easy - I breezed through in a couple days of intermittent play, with no real competition even against the King. Items unlocked don't really confer an advantage. For example, unlocking rackets don't necessarily improve specific traits. I've played for a while now, cleared world tour many times and the player i created still is relatively slow and unskilled even with advanced equipment and clothing.
What would have made this special is the online feature whereby you can go online and play other game purchasers from around the world. But as of October 6, 2012, the reality is that it is difficult to connect (even though my internect signal is excellent), the controls often lag or drop during online gameplay, the serve power bar does not function in online play and the traits seem to not be effective against other players. Ive played as serve and volley, hard hitter, varied shots, etc. but none really seem to make much difference on the court.
Seems like Sony slapped this together to have on opening day and just forgot about it. Too bad because it had a lot of promise and looks pretty good. But who knows, maybe Sony will throw out some updates. Hope so.
