To start with your career now plays out like a big board game ... I kid you not! No more deciding which training sessions (mini games) you want to do because it all depends on what ticket numbers you have which in turn decide how many steps you can take on the board! I was actually in shock for the first 4 seasons as this played out in front of me and I really could not believe that this was seen as a good idea in whatever development meetings they had. It does however get worse while playing this strange take on the Game of Life, you play a number of tournaments, mini games and some strange sections where you get extra points for publicity appearances and the like, this actually affects your world ranking!Read more ›
I was very disappointed and wouldn't recommend this to anyone!!!
I bought this game solely for the move compatibility and yes it is amazing playing tennis like you are actually playing tennis, even though it is a little easy at times to be honest. I've played a few other tennis games and this one does really feel if on the court hitting a ball with the move controller. I think the move is a revolution, I am not interested one tiny bit in sitting on my chair with the dual shock working my way through tournaments for hours on end but the move with this game is incredible even though as I said its not pin point accuracy/control as with some games and it is a little easy if anything even on very hard, but its not about that its about the feel of playing tennis using your body and arm to strike the ball, doing back hands etc it is amazing, highly recommended. And it depends how much effort you want to put into it also you can work up a good sweat if you really going for it, my wife aches for days after it as she really goes all out playing the game.
The bad thing is the game is limited with the move control you cant play any sort of career with the game or tournaments you are just limited to exhibition or party mode. It is so annoying that you cant play the full game with the move it has to be done with the dual shock controller and I am not interested. So you are just playing a tiny part of the game with the move, also the main menu screen has to be selected with the main controller its as if the Move control is just an add on at the end when they were programming it, it's a disgrace in this day and age really come on Sega.Read more ›
Graphically, it is superior though up close the stars look creepily doll like, and the transitions between animations as the players move are still jerky. There's also a very limited selection of animations for the players, particularly in the career mode where you'll be forced to skip over the same repetitive player celebration / victory sequence with each match and tournament. The music is, of course, as cheesy as ever but it suits the game.
The gameplay has not evolved much. It still looks and plays vaguely like tennis. Baseline groundstrokes work fairly well, but volleys are still rubbish. The controls in general are unsatisfactory with players in your control doing things like turning a backhand into an inside out forehand that takes you miles off the court, or uselessly swinging their racket after a ball has gone past. The buttons themselves trigger the movement of the player and not necessarily the swing itself, which is quite annoying as sometimes even when you're in position to take the ball at its apex your player runs forward and turns it into a less effective half volley. There's no scope for trying to go for the lines here, the control is limited, and the mechanic of constructing a point by moving your opponent around is virtually non existent against the computer. Basically, the game becomes boring and repetitive pretty fast unless you've got other people around to play with (I have no idea about the online component or the Move compatibility).
And then there's the career mode, the biggest disappointment by far.Read more ›
