4.0 out of 5 stars Just more of the same! 31 May 2009
Platform for Display:Xbox 360|Edition:Game Only
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I remember buying the first virtua tennis and being blown away by number 2 and number 3, but this does not have enough new features to warrant a purchase in my opinion!
So here we are again for Virtua tennis 2009. Just like number 3, you can create a tennis player and guide them through the career mode taking parts in challanges to improve your statistics such as serving and volleying etc and by taking part in tournaments to improve your rank. The mini games include a block breaking game, snooker and so on and so forth. Generally these are pretty fun but do grow a tad repetitive when playing the same game for the 50th time! The tournaments can either be doubles or singles and help you to progress just like in all the other VT games.
So, question time-what is new? One is the camera angle. You can now change the angle you play at from over the top to over the shoulder which creates a more realistic game by pressing select. I instantly fell in love with this. There are some new characters such as Andy Murray and there are some new games. That's pretty much it although the online mode has been seriously revamped and from the games I've played, there is hardly any lag. Thankfully, the achievements are also easier to earn than on the previous game.
This is a good game, but a little similar to previous titles (see my review on VT 3 for a more extensive review)

2.0 out of 5 stars Daily grind 13 Jun 2009
Platform for Display:Xbox 360|Edition:Game Only
Fun: 2.0 out of 5 stars   
The good news is that this has the same fun gameplay as VT always had. The bad news is precisely that - the game has not fundamentally changed since the first installment on the Dreamcast. The graphics and gameplay are exactly the same as VT3. The only additions are an updated player roster, a few uninteresting minigames and the inclusion of the Davis Cup.

However, the main problem is within the career mode. The progression from amateur to pro is an unbelievable grind. After around 10 hours of gameplay I had still not lost a match and trust me I ain't that good. Things pick up in pro mode but to get there is a chore and far from the fun we should be used to.

If you haven't played VT then get this for the experience. If you have then pray that this doesn't turn in to a yearly franchise and wait for a true update.

Platform for Display:Xbox 360|Edition:Game Only
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Virtua Tennis 2009 is the latest and greatest installment in the long running series. Playing very similarly to Virtua Tennis 3, VT 2009 is a very good arcade game of tennis which is a lot of fun to play with friends or online.

Unlike the Xbox 360 version of Top Spin 3, VT 2009 features a complete roster of the best professional tennis players today (both Ana Ivanovic and Rafael Nadal were left out of Top Spin 3) as well as one or two all time favourites such as Boris Becker and Tim Henman.

The career mode is kind of easy and therefore the tennis can be dull against the AI but the addition of a variety of mini games and training exercises work to mix things up a little and the possibility of achieving the title of world number 1 is well realised here.

The Davis Cup licence is present and whilst the Grand Slams aren't officially included, Great Britain, France, Australia and the USA all have major events which represent the Grand Slams in all but licence, so you won't feel without them.

The game is, based on my experiences so far, going to be best played either online or with friends for the optimum challenge and as far as arcade tennis goes, Virtua Tennis 2009 is as good as it gets. If you prefer a more accurate simulation of the game, try Top Spin 3, or you could even get your tennis racquet out and get down to the tennis courts!

Fun: 1.0 out of 5 stars   
The gameplay itself isn't too bad, and the game has some potential. However, there are a number of key problems that make the game tiresome and boring.

The career mode is the main part of the game. You start as an amateur at rank 100. To even get to the proffesional game, you need to climb to amateur rank 1. The problem is that to do this, you have to play countless tournaments as you only climb a couple of ranking points for each tournament win. These tournaments are boring as you tend to go through them without even dropping a point as they're so easy. Be prepared to be very bored if you want to get to the professional rankings!

Then, just a few other strange features;
- Matches in the amateur ranks consist of best of 3 games, and there's no concept of having to win by two clear games. i.e. you get to serve twice and could win 2-1. There are no options to choose game length, i.e. there should be the option to play a 'proper' set of tennis. (In fact, there are no gameplay options at all on this game (i.e. difficulty level, turning replaying off, etc. are not available options!)
- Sometimes, you play a training game in a particular free week and then it inexplicably jumps two weeks of play and you miss a tournament you wanted to enter.
- You can't perform an ace in doubles!!!
- Unrealistic gameplay in that you can hardly ever hit the ball out of play and never hit the net (nor does the computer player).

Overall, it amazes me that someone must have tested this game and felt that the career mode was ok, when in fact it is very tiresome.
Sloppy game!

5.0 out of 5 stars Still love playing on it
I bought this ages ago and my nephew still spends hours playing on it. It is surprising how this older version surpasses the gameplay of the more recent console games.
