The only problem I find is the rather irritating background music (or more accurately muzak). Although you can switch this off and continue with FX sound there is not the option of adding your own soundtrack, which you find on a few sports sims.
Overall though, this game is excellent and well worth an investment!!
The main thing that strikes you is the graphics- they are superb. I played the PS3 version just before playing this and there isn't much difference. I know it sounds stupid saying that, but really when making the shots in game, the courts and player movements are outstanding.
Virtua Tennis has a good range of male and female players. Federer, Nadal, Henman etc. However, a very strange thing is that players like Federer look spot on in look and motion, yet its like the female players were completely rushed, as they look nothing like their real life counterparts!
Virtua Tennis 3 has a good range of modes, but the best probably being World Tour in which you create a player and take him/her around the world completing challenges and winning matches. Where this is good, it also has some flaws. It's pretty repetitive, and you can't really customize your player much at all, in look or style. Also you play "Challenger Tournaments" which are small tournaments when starting out, but you can get drawn against Federer when your only just beginning! Yet you can beat him easily! They should have just created some amateurs to make the tour more realistic.
In multiplayer, there is no online which is disappointing, but there is ad-hoc. So if you have a few friends that also have the game, playing them should be alot of fun. A problem I've had with Virtua Tennis 3 is that it has been freezing ever since I bought it. It can not happen for a while, and then just happen at an awkward time- so just needed to mention that.
So Virtua Tennis 3 is a great portable game, especially if you love tennis. It has great graphics, fun mini games and a good range of players and courts. It's arcade style is perfect for the PSP.
However the game crashes very regularly(freezing the psp then switches it off).
Ive managed to get my custom character to No.1 but i'm unable to use it to play a game under the Tournament tab.
Great game made almost unplayable,such a shame.
