Very Underrated Game,
By A Customer
This review is from: WTA Tour Tennis PS2 (Video Game)
Yes, this game is not perfect, but do not listen to all the people who say that it is awful. I have played virtually all of the tennis games out there: Sega Sprots Tennis, Topspin, Smash Court Tennis, etc. And this is my favorite. Unlike the other games, when you simply press a button at any time and your player hits a great shot, this game actually requires skill. People who say that all you can do is pop the ball up have simply not mastered the timing. Dont freak out when I say this, it is not that hard to learn. When you do you can hit some amazing shots. Tactics are also very important in this game unlike the others, and you can play a variety of game styles. The graphics are nothing to rave about but they are ok. When you get good at this game the computer is too easy to beat even on "very hard". The sound is by far the best of any tennis game. Monica Seles' grunt is perfect! Overall this game has a few flaws but is great fun and definetly underrated by people who think it is awful. Also just a note: Topspin is not that great. It is very one dimensional. Not much variety. Your player tendsto bolt in the opposite direction just before you hit the ball. The graphics are amazing but the gameplay is very mediocre and can be very frustrating. Try WTA Tour Tennis, it is the funnest tennis game out there.
