4.0 out of 5 stars Tennis is now next generation, JUST! 21 Mar. 2007
By 360 rox
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Wow is this game addictive! Okay, those who remember or have played any of the previous generations of this series won't be blown away by any of the changes for this outing, but everything truly has been improved however slightly.

The graphics are better (although all the previous versions were always excellent and ahead of their time anyway!). The motion capture is fantastic and each animation does seem to be individual to the character under your control! Service actions are truly amazing in their accuracy.The music i must say is still awful and players will either want to use music from their hard drive or mute it completely i would guess!

The improvements also include small additions which manage to push the game that much closer to perfection. There are now more mini games which are fun and addictive (brilliant multi player madness) and for the first time, multi-set tennis! now okay everyone will say, its about time, but its still been added so credit where its due this is what we've all been clamouring for and now we have it!

This game has also been ever so slightly tweaked on the difficulty on court. Where in previous versions, within a couple of hours of beginning your play you could become a master simply by holding down the button for as long as possible, this version does not let you do this. You will find bitter disappointment trying to play this way, as your player will simply end up diving all over the court. This time out you are required to move around the court much more before setting your player and hitting a winner!

I think with the incredible multi player fun and the easy to pick up but hard to master nature of this game will make it an instant hit! BUY THIS NOW if you are a tennis fan or fan of games that grab your attention and keep you coming back for more.

5.0 out of 5 stars An excellent tennis game from Sega. 25 April 2007
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
VIRTUA TENNIS 3 is the latest instalment in Sega's famed series. Not having been familiar with the previous games (well, not for playing anyway) I thought I'd rent this game out, and I'm really glad I did.

Singles and doubles games are all possible, with up to four players on the same XBox 360, and you can set the number of sets within a game if you think the standard number is too long. There are four difficulty levels for CPU players, and the latter two in particular will call for some good play. In exhibition matches you can select from a selection of world-renowned players of both genders including Tim Henman, Venus Williams, Rafael Nadal and Maria Sharapova - and not only do they look a bit like their real-life counterparts, they reportedly tend to play like them, too. If you have a custom player created in the career mode (see later) then you can use him/her instead. Some genuine courts like Wimbledon are also present, with different ones having different surfaces, causing the ball to behave differently when it bounces.

In the career mode you actually get to design a tennis player (including hair colour, gender, what they wear, eye colour, face shape etc) and go through a 20-year career in which you try and have a successful career by entering tournaments and using the intervening time to balance rest with training to improve various attributes of your player. Rest is important so that your player doesn't lose so much stamina that s/he gets exhausted -- or, worse still, injured. If you do well enough your rank increases, which in turn gives you more choice in which tournaments you can enter, and you can also get upgrades to your wardrobe and racquets if you're lucky.

The training sections are kind of stupid from the outset, but they are genuinely fun to play.

5.0 out of 5 stars Smashing success 13 April 2007
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
What a game! - its fun, quick, addictive and even the missus wants to play.

The graphics are great (especially with an HDTV) and the gameplay is fluid. The characters look like their real counterparts and the courts and surrounding extras (crowd, linesmen, ball boys, etc) all act correctly and sound great.

The season mode is very addictive with the mini games being the high point of the game. - Very simple yet very hard to master fully.

Its a game taht you cant put down and will leave you saying, "just one more tournament and then i break into the top 50!".

Take note - put it down, breathe and go down the pub to remonstrate to your firends how you just beat Federer.

4.0 out of 5 stars An awesome tennis experience 1 April 2008
By Rob
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I am not really a person who plays sport games a lot. I did however absolutey adore Virtua Tennis 1 & 2 on the Sega Dreamcast and felt it was one of a few (crazy taxi, shenmue and metropolis street racer being the others in my opinion) truely classic games to grace that console. So when Virtua Tennis 3 came out I was immediately tempted but held off purchasing as I have not known many sports games that have great longetivity or a truely involving single player. However I was completely wrong to hold off this game is an exhilerating experience and completely immersive. I have also found that my girlfriend who rarely plays games that don't involve Johnny Depp and hates tennis has become completely addicted and in some cases way more competitive than even John McEnroe, I honestly believe she has never cared so much about a game.

The career mode is fantastic, creating your player working your way through the year calender and up the rankings, playing mini games and practicing techniques to improve your overall ability. It actually feels like they have really thought about how to make this game attractive to the solo player. You feel a real sense of accomplishment winning some of the higher trophies and it is completely immersive.

The graphics are also beautiful and it is amazing fun multiplayer. (I do not have Xbox Live so am unable to comment on the Live experience.) The only areas I feel it is slightly let down is the music, which is the same for every game and grates ever so slightly especially as you start to get addicted. This however can be combated by turning it down in the settings.

There has been a lot of complaints that the players dive to easily but this does only happen if you are too far away from the ball to hit it, as in real tennis if you cannot reach the ball you will have to dive to hit it.

A fantastic game for absolutley anyone. It comes highly recommended.

This game is brilliant until you get to the "very hard" level.
