even more disappointing for the Wii,
This review is from: Virtua Tennis 4 (Wii)) (Video Game)
Well, I was expecting to have some great tennis fun with this and Wii Motionplus controller. How wrong was I! Only a small fraction of the game can you use the motionplus. You have to use your Wii remote like a basic handheld controller for The World Tour, rather than skipping about your living room like a real tennis player playing real shots (so to speak). Very very disappointed indeed. I shall be returning this for a refund. If you want to run around yer games room (or any other room) playing real shots, then dont go for this game. Beware, it isint clear at all on the box, so be warned. I've given it two stars for its graphics and the fact that it does have a Motionplay section. It would have gotten five stars if all aspects of the game was motionplay. What a shame it isnt.
After playing the Motion Control section of the game, I have downgraded the stars to one star. Why? well, having set the 'difficulty' to Very Hard, I have trounced Roger Federer 6-0, 6-0, 6-0 (my first ever match!!). Last night i did the same to Novac Djokovic second match) (though he did manage to take one game off me). Surely it shouldnt be that easy to beat these opponents? not very satisfying really. you just dont feel youve been in a game of tennis with a tennis ace. I thought It would be a lot more difficult than this, thus allowing me to develop over time. Hardly worth bothering with the rest of the players as I know what the outcome will be.

Mr. L. J. Taylor says:
Couldn't disagree more. Using the Wii-remote super-nes style is a strange design choice, but it's an inspired one in my opinion. I'm glad that Sega didn't incorporate full motion control support as playing a lengthy mode like World Tour would be immensely tiring and would quickly become repetitive.
Do agree though that the lack of motion control support should have been made clearer on the box to avoid misleading customers.

Thanks for the review, glad I read it before I bought it. I for one certainly don't want to be buying a tennis game on the wii to sit down twiddling a controller and pressing buttons, what an absolute waste
