I was wary at first to shell out $40 for Smash Court Tennis 2, but now I am overjoyed that I did. The game is addictive and not hard to master. The 16 players you can play as are Andy Roddick, Juan Carlos Ferrero, Tommy Haas, Richard Gasquet, Tim Henman, James Blake, Marat Safin, Lleyton Hewitt, Justine Henin-Hardenne, Kim Clijsters, Serena Williams, Amelie Mauresmo, Lindsay Davenport, Jennifer Capriati, Daniela Hantuchova, and Anna Kournikova. This selection overall is excellent, but I wish they had excluded Kournikova, Hantuchova, and Gasquet and instead chosen Sharapova, Venus, and maybe Roger Federer. These choices are definitely better than TopSpin's, though, which features too many boring American players like Shaughnessy and Harkleroad. In the pro tour mode, my only complaint is that the computer decides what the score is for you based on your playing of a few points in what are called "turning points" of the match. For instance, you may enter a tournament and be playing a higher ranked player, and before you even start the score might be 1(you)-5 (them) in games for the first set, and it will set the score at 30-40, set point for the computer opponent. Then it will tell you that your goal is to win the game. This happened to me and I did win the game, but after the game was over the computer gave the first set 6-3 to my opponent, before I even played another point!!! Still, the pros definitely outweight the cons for Smash Court Tennis Pro Tournament II. The players are incredibly realistic, as are the courts. Clijsters and Roddick even use their Babolat racquets, while Capriati uses her black Prince and Serena uses her black and white Wilson and even wears her cat suit.Read more ›

OK, the title may be too long but the game itself is very good. I have played all of the major tennis games out there: Topspin, Sega Sports Tennis, Smash Court I, WTA Tour Tennis, etc. This game is my favorite of the bunch. For starters, it has the best player lineup, including men and women. The gameplay is all about timing and is a good balance between arcade style and simulation. Unlike other tennis games, you can actually make errors in this one. What a novel concept! If you try to hit a flat shot and miss-hit it badly, the ball will go out. The serve takes some getting used to. You can place it pretty well but the controls are very sensitive. The graphics are not quite as good as Topspin but very much adequate. The grand slam courts are recreated very realistically. The AI is fairly balanced. In most tennis games, on normal it is too easy and on hard it is nearly impossible to win. I have been playing this game for a couple of weeks and win most matches against the computer on normal mode but i also still lose at times. Netplay could have been a little better, it is not to your advantage to come to the net unless it is behind a spectacular shot. The running shot that has been incorporated into the game is a neat idea and fun when you can pull one off. Overall I would recomment this game to anyone. The balance between simulation and arcade style gameplay make this game a lot of fun for tennis fans and non-tennis fans alike.

I'm a big fan of tennis games as well as the sport, so this release is right up my alley. It helps inspire confidence that the producer of this game is Namco, which has consistently given us quality gameplay and design -- witness the Tekken, Soul Calibur, and Time Crisis game franchises.

Smash Court Tennis 2 Pro Tournament gets most of its pieces right. There are a couple of problems in the game, but I can also say fairly that most tennis games have the same problems.

The pros:

- Good controls; you don't ever feel disconnected from your character.

- Decent graphics. Obviously there's a limit as to how much eye candy you can put into this kind of game, and this game's looks are neither deficient nor excessive.

- Excellent breadth. You get a complete tutorial so you can feel out the controls, 16 stock characters with their own quirks (for example, they throw the ball differently when they serve) plus the ability to create your own; hundreds of unlockables such as tips from the stars, sound tests, tournament histories and so on; and a fascinating Pro Tour mode (see below).

- The Pro Tour mode lets you play through your own character through a calendar-based system, going into training sessions with your coach, playing tournaments, and accepting training matches from players usually much more powerful than yourself. The great thing about the system is that it's so close to real life -- for example, if you train for three weeks non-stop before a tournament, you'll get more points and make your characters stronger, but your stamina goes down and you'll move slower and hit less hard.

The downsides of the game:

- Serving is a pain in the neck.

I started playing this game about a month ago and am hugely addicted to it! The best part is the gameplay, which is amazingly realistic. As a tennis player and big fan of the sport, it is a pleasure to have total control over all aspects of gameplay. Contrary to what some reviewers have written, serving is not hard. If you use the directional pad instead of the analog stick, you can place your serve ANYWHERE in the box (down the middle, out wide, deep, shallow). And depending on what button you use, you can hit a power, topspin/kick, slice or slow-ball serve. You should be able to ace the computer even on the hardest level.

As in real tennis, the keys to playing well are movement and timing. You need to position yourself in the right spot to strike the ball, and you need to time your swing. Swing at the right time, and you maximize your power and accuracy; swing a little early or late, and your power and accuracy go down; swing WAY early or late, and you will miss the ball completely. Unlike in other tennis games, where power comes from activating an external meter, power in SCTPT2 comes from hitting the ball at the right time and from the right position.

Another realistic feature of the game is how significantly play changes from surface to surface. On grass, the ball stays low and skids, making it easier to hit aces and harder to return serve. On clay, the ball makes marks on the court, and the slipping and sliding of the players is both visible and audible. The music is a bit annoying, though it can be turned off. I like to play with just the sound effects (grunting, shoe squeaking, ball striking, etc.). Extra features, like a cellphone going off in the crowd and the umpire then asking for silence, are also much appreciated!
