This review is from: Virtua Tennis 4 (PS Vita) (Video Game)
Yep, great game, not perfect mind. Solid frame rates, Very impressive graphics and player movements and likenesses are convincing. All the female players seem very attractive for some reason, not a bad thing. Good solid fun!
However, for some reason I find multiplayer matches seem to drop out a lot (which I haven't found on other vita games), and is a failing for a 'world tour edition' game in my opinion. Maybe this will get better though.
The touchscreen controls are a novelty on this game I feel. While fun, it all comes down to timing rather than being able to do power shots etc.
Another novelty is the 'virtual' mode, where you can play from a first person perspective, and move the vita around to look anywhere! This really shows off the game and graphics (the crowd for example look great), but I think the novelty will wear off.
Another thing is a long running gripe with the virtua tennis series... it's really hard to hit the ball outside of the lines (apart from serving). I guess this is good for arcade play, but I think limits the game a bit.
Oh yeah, the inclusion of some classic players like Becker, Rafter and co is a nice touch too.
A bit expensive (as with most vita games), but definitely worth it for tennis fans.
