Product Description

There is also a bonus Trophy Room where you can win prizes based on your winnings.

Amazon.co.uk Review

Having already proven themselves in the PSone tennis game arena, Namco transfer their skills to this new PS2 release. And while they've dispensed with the cartoonish look of their earlier entries in the genre, Smash Court Tennis Pro Tournament nonetheless retains that crucial playability and fun factor.

The PS2 clearly gives the developers more scope, and they've quickly taken advantage of it. The graphics, front end and audio are all that bit smarter, while the choice of players and tournaments has likewise been broadened. Indeed, the expanded single-player game, complete with extra bonus challenges such as point targets for a certain match, is a real delight to play. Naturally, in multiplayer, things are even more fun, and it's well worth buying a multi-tap to enjoy the game to maximum effect with four players.

If there's one thing that slightly holds the game back though, it's the quality of the competition. The game lacks some of the pace and energy of Sega's excellent Virtua Tennis 2, and while Smash Court Tennis is more than enough fun in its own right, it's not quite the number one seed.

Yet, replete with official tournaments and players, Smash Court Tennis is a very easy game to get into, and one that offers a significant challenge. Its predominantly arcade-style approach ensures that it can be enjoyed by fans of the sport and more casual players alike. And it really is worth buying simply for being one of the most compelling multiplayer games to date on the PS2. --Simon Brew

4.0 out of 5 stars Good, Good 17 Jun. 2003
By Si
I played a demo of this from a magazine, and its looked great so i got it. The graphics are above averag and there are plenty of characters, (14, if you include the players on the challenge mode) And there are plenty of modes, pro, arcade, exibition,challenge and there is trophy room where you can look at your prizes youve bought with points you earn on pro mode.
I didn't give this game five stars because it was hard, very hard. There are four tournements and they are all as hard as each other, i can't get past the final on any of them, its just annoying. This also gives this game a smaller lifespan, i just got frustrated with it and gave up.
The four player mode(doubles) is great and you can really have fun giving your mate tactics to beat the 2 other mates behind you.
The last critism of this game is the unlockables, just photos tips and music, Oh by the way the music is cheesy on this game!
This game though is a very accurate simulator, with drop shots, lobs, topspins and smashes.
A decent tennis game, best of its genre

5.0 out of 5 stars Smash Court Tennis Pro 15 July 2004
I was never really fond of tennis in real life, mostly becuase i'm good at it, and I thought it would be the same with Smash Court Tennis Pro, but it's not.
It's one of those really addictive games which you just can't stop playing. Theres a selection of eight of the worlds finest tennis players, a couple options like time attack, two player, and single player tournements etc, but that doesn't bother you because the game is just so good, you just have to play it when ever you get the chance and you'll be hooked. There's brilliant ball and human physics and sound, and playing it is just amazing, it really is.

4.0 out of 5 stars This a great game to play with your mates!!! 21 Jun. 2002
By A Customer
Smash Court Tennis is simply one the greatest multiplayer games to come out on the playstation 2. Although there are only eight characters to choose from at the start, which i believe is the worst thing about the game, as the game goes on their are chances to unlock new characters. It is almost impossible to obtain an ace when serving but this can be overcome with plenty of practice. The game is a high tempo game and brings everything that a normal game of tennis can bring. If you do not like tennis then this is probably not a game for you, unless you are willing to ignore what the game is about and just play to get one over your mates. Apart from the excellent detail in graphics the game brings it is not a game that can be completed in a day and then not played for months. Every match is difficult and will need skills and practise from the player to win at the final and become the ultimate tennis champ. This is a classic game and is better than just a detailed version of the first ever line and dot tennis game. This game is a must buy and every playstation 2 owner should buy a copy of this to play on not just when its a rainy day.

5.0 out of 5 stars Briiliant 24 July 2003
This game is very good, it's got very good prizes and the Pro Tournament is challenging and the multiplayer is great!
4 player doubles with 3 of your mates is the only one of the high points of the game and the Exhibition is great to try out a new style of play on a choice of 3 difficulties.
It includes 8 players from real life but I was disapointed because there were no British players.
It has Wimbledon, America and Australia with a world open and the umpire speaks French because it's in Canada!
Highly recommended but shop around and you might get it cheap.

3.0 out of 5 stars Very good game, but only worked for a short time 14 Mar. 2010
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
This is a great game, I bought it after playing a demo I got with my PS2. It was packaged well, arrived quickly and in mint condition when I took it out the box.
When I put it in the PS2, I played the game for about half an hour, I was impressed by the game play and the variety of shots you could play and the people you could play as. However, after about 30 minutes, the game froze and wouldn't respond to anything. I reset the PlayStation and tried again. I got the blue orbs on the screen, went into browser and Disc Read Error appeared.
The game still doesn't work after having it since November (it's now March), also after getting my PlayStation 2 repaired and trying it on 3 friends' PS2s.

5.0 out of 5 stars realism at its best! 23 Jun. 2002
By A Customer
Brilliant, graphics capture you and draws you in and before long you have lost your entire evening!
Forget what other mag reviews say, IT IS NOT DIFFICULT TO PLAY even against a computer. You tend to focus on your strategy for the next point and you enjoy the on court feeling of success.
Easy to play and progress to proffessional standards without the necessary pre tennis school skills like you need for most sport sims.
I should mention that easy does not (in this case) mean boring. You are driven to improve your tennis shots in every game.
Best in muliplayer mode where the graphics are not compromised by split screens as you see the whole court, adding to its realism.
There are drawbacks but no games perfect:
Lack of initial player choice spoil it and replays interupt gameplay far too often but fail too show when you feel you have excelled yourself.
Sound is difficult to fault as its what you'd expect during a match.
Overall fun but without compromising proffessionalism. The only decent tennis game out there in this league.
