1.0 out of 5 stars Short, but not so sweet... 9 May 2011
Platform for Display:PLAYSTATION 3
Fun: 1.0 out of 5 stars   
I was quite looking forward to the release of Virtua Tennis 4. When it arrived, I set myself up to play the World Tour and, six hours later, it was over too soon. Essentially, your career lasts all of one season. What happened to a ten year career?

I was very disappointed and wouldn't recommend this to anyone!!!

2.0 out of 5 stars Virtual Mess 1 Mar 2012
Platform for Display:PLAYSTATION 3
Fun: 3.0 out of 5 stars   
I used to love the Virtua Tennis series, its playability was second to none and more importantly it was fun. Fast forward a few years and I guess Sega felt the game was looking and feeling a bit stale so decided to tweak it. Luckily enough the general gameplay has been left untouched with the exception that shockingly enough your player will now hit the ball out on occasion, for long term fans of the series this is a big shock! Then there is also the introduction of a super shot which in a game that was never that realistic before is a real nail in the coffin if they wish to attract tennis purists to purchase the game but I guess it will attract the ones that like their tennis games to have cuddly generic characters. However, the same tweaking wasn't applied to the world tour mode which if I'm honest was my favourite part of all the Virtua Tennis games until the developers approached the tweaking to this section with a sledgehammer and what is left can only be kindly described as a mess.

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!

4.0 out of 5 stars So close yet so far, limited with move play 17 Jun 2011
Platform for Display:PLAYSTATION 3
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
This game is awesome, the graphics are stunning on the PS3 and the game play is excellent but there are a few big time issues!

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.

3.0 out of 5 stars Work in progress 26 Jun 2011
By matt94
Platform for Display:PLAYSTATION 3
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
At first I was disappointed with the game, as the career mode only included one season and you relied very much on fortune in order to be successful. You needed a huge element of luck, but after playing the campaign twice I started to like it. Whilst I do believe that it still needs to be improved, and that you need a longer career, I do think it is enjoyable. Personally, I would say it is a good game, but I think there are better games out there. If it is on offer at a cheap price, then I would buy it as it is enjoyable, but I have played better.

1.0 out of 5 stars Virtua Tennis 4 for PS3 4 May 2011
By Browser
Platform for Display:PLAYSTATION 3
Fun: 1.0 out of 5 stars   
I have been an avid user of Virtua tennis 3 on the Wii however the graphics were not up to much so as an owner of a PS3 and a motion controller I quickly bought the version 4 for PS3 however like other reviewers was disappointed to find the motion controller only worked in small part of the game. What is even more remarkable it works really well and if Sony had applied it across the whole product I am sure they would have one over a large number of gamers. I feel I have wasted my money and I am now considering selling the game second hand. Very disappointing!!

4.0 out of 5 stars Almost but not quite! 1 May 2011
Platform for Display:PLAYSTATION 3
Fun: 3.0 out of 5 stars   
Like the other reviewer I was a little disappointed that the Move feature is only used in part of the game. But on playing the World Tour, I found it quite fun and mildly addictive, even with using the regular hand controller. The unlocks that you gain (new stadiums, etc) are available in the other sections of the game. Your character that you build can also be loaded into the Move section so it is you playing the tennis stars. A plus for the PS3 version is that it has extra characters to play against, Becker, Edberg, Rafter and Courier.

The Move feature works quite well. Forehand, backhand, topspin, slice, serve and lob are all easily achieved. Only the drop shot seems impossible to do. Maybe some tweaking still to come in future patches? There are a few noticable bugs in game as well, wrong scores etc. But I'm sure those can be ironed out.

So once i've been through the World Tour a couple of times to unlock everything (be aware the game manual is quite bad) I'll just be left with the Move, which is pretty much the reason I bought the game anyway.

Certainly fun, not sure about it's long term replayerbility, except for the move feature.

*** After playing through the World Tour again, I've decided to up the score to 4 stars ***
