A Kid's Review on 23 Jun. 2009

Virtua Tennis 2009 (Wii)

I love this game!! I find a lot of games for the wii have bad graphics but these ones are good. The gameplay is fantastic and you can play online against people all over the world. In world tour mode you can shop play tournaments , play mini games and work out with (what sega say is legandary) Tim Henman. If you dont want to buy the wii motion + then dont because the game is almost as good without it but the tiny wee add on makes the game feel more reallistic.

I hope this review helped you

Maybe next years VT will be completed, this one just feels like its been rushed out. Don't normally write reviews but couldn't agree with any of reviews so far. I'll just give a short evaluation having played both games for couple of days
VT graphics - players look more realistic than GST but that makes them look worse, confused!!! let me explain. In GST they have realized you can't recreate a player to look realistic on wii so have stuck to cartoonish look a'likes which work well. VT they just look like odd copies just making them look really rubbish.it's cringeworthy!!

Gameplay- GST wins my a million miles. It feels like the real thing (using wii motion and nun chuck), the backhand slice is perfect, topspin very good and flat shots ok (haven't mastered them yet), GST is hard in a good way. You need to play your way into points and then nail a winner, you'll lose most games to start with even on Easy setting. You need to use variety and get the shots right of you'll lose point. VT isn't realistic, its arcade tennis, no need to have backswing it's more like wii tennis than a progression to something more challenging.

Music - Both pretty poor, i just turn music off on both. GST commentary is good. Pat Cash doesn't say too much, i would have liked to have had a few different commentary options, Macs and Borris would be have been great but maybe thats for next year. The sound affects in GST are good, the crowd get into rallies as they do in VT but it's the important details VT is missing which make such a big difference. There isn't such a large amount of venue's in GST as VT but touches like when your playing in French open the umpire gives score in French, you slide on clay, and you have all surfaces needed, what GST lakes in number's it makes up fore in quality.

I just tried this game yesterday. What struck me as very bad is that when you play in two player mode (single match) the screen is NOT split so one players ends up having to swing counter-intuative as his/her player is a the top of the screen.
Also, the score count bar is partly covering the player at the top of the screen which is very difficult when you need to return a service! This could easily have been avoided by having it disappear during the match! Bad call from Sega.
This even worse for the Wii version as the Wii is typical used to play games together with family/friends...
The only decent way to play with two is by playing a double match against two AIs.
At first attempt the single player mode works quite nice (both in normal and motion-plus), all I need to do now is practice a bit more :-)

This game is great! I have played it a few times by myself and with friends. After a while your arm gets sore which i suppose isnt a bad thing. The graphics arent that bad for the wii either. Everything about this game is ace apart from one small thing. Everything you start a round of tennis you have to point your mote at your player. It would of been far better just to press the A button to continue. Nevermind, you get used to it after a while.

(NOTE: I've been playing using MotionPlus). If I'd have written this review yesterday I would only have given the game a couple of stars. You see, having been classically trained, I was standing there waggling my remote with my wrist thinking this feels no more responsive than Wii Sports.

Today I thought I'd give it another go before trading it in. I started playing like an idiot jumping around the room like it was Wimbledon and then it hit me, it felt really good. Don't get me wrong you can get away with waggling but Im not sure how far it would get you.

so in conclusion to get the most out of this (or more to the point, MotoionPlus) you have to treat your Wii like you did the first day you got it out of the box... go nuts!

I recently bought Virtua Tennis 2009 off Amazon and I have been very impressed. Gameplay is FANTASTIC. It is very easy to use and you can work up the ranks in World Tour mode. It has very realistic graphics with a wide choice of professonal players.

I also have played what is claimed to be this game's biggest rival : Grand Slam Tennis, and Virtua Tennis blows it out the water. In Grand Slam Tennis, the ball is about 5 times its proper size and you can only play in 4 stadiums. whereas in Virtua Tennis you can play in hundreds of different stadiums around the world and it's just overall much better.

Highly recommended game for any wii user.

I have enjoyed playing this game but the bugs in it are unacceptable and the game should not have been released in this crippling state. One major bug results in missing tournaments because the calender skips 2 weeks at a time, particularly if you choose to play a mini game or visit the tennis academy between tournaments. In doubles, if you choose a partner (you gain doubles partners by playing practice matches at given intervals by invitation only) then another bug may give you a partner you did not click on. Instead you get one of your earlier partners, and they could be a poor seed. You'd be hard pushed to win a game of doubles against higher seeded opponents with a low seeded partner. The only way around this bug is to delete the offending player from your partner list. There are also other known bugs such as getting stuck at a certain rank and not being able to progress beyond it (basically ending your career) and finding yourself changed into a different player wearing weird clothes. Also not receiving the trophies you have earned.

After some 30 odd real hours of playing and having got to number 1 in the amateur ranks (it's not hard to win every match in singles) I find myself starting the professional ranks going through the same concept all over again. I was hoping to play against some famous players but no, they are all unknowns at the moment, albeit with better skills but singles are still easy enough to win all the time. Perhaps I need to be in the top 20 professional players before I meet the big guns. Oh well, only another 20 hours to go then!

Also it's quite challenge to play tournaments, mini-games, go to tennis academy, play practice matches and take enough rest to keep your stamina bar from being exhausted.
