I agree with the previous review. This is the best tennis game I have ever played, and I have played just about all of them! The gameplay mechanics and AI really make this a great game for those people who want a tennis game that reproduces all the shots you can play in tennis. And you can make errors if you time time your power shots well, or you don't time your volleys, another aspect that I love about this game.

And the World Tour is so deep - 59 tournament events each calendar year to choose from - but you also have to rest your player to recover stamina as well as train them to increase your skills. There is even a Hawkeye challenge system!!!! I have won 2 of these challenges out of 20, and it's a real buzz when you win one. Highly recommended for true tennis fans!

This is the best tennis and most realistic tennis game on any console ever. I have honestly owned Top spin, Top spin 2, Virtua Tennis 2 and 3 etc. I have also owned all previous Smash court titles on Ps2.

The ball physics, player movement, etc and so well done here. Its not as arcadey as Virtua tennis 3 and this is a lot more like real life tennis. Its all about trying to get your opponent out of position before trying to hit a winner. Hitting shots well depends on your timing (release of shot buttons). Other tennis games should take note as this makes the gameplay so deep. Press the o button for a topspin shot and the shot will vary in strength,and quality according to your timing. So in effect there are about 3 or 4 different quality topspin shots.

Give the game a chance and you will be shocked after an hour of play, and will realise how great it is.

I had never really heard of this series before and I had only played viruta tennis on psp and xbox and top spin on xbox. I was really disappointed by virtua tennis 3 on psp - I actually think virtua tennis 2 was better, and subsequently sold my copy on ebay!
Having read some good reviews of this title I decided to take the plunge and try it. I have been pleasantly surprised. The gameplay is much more solid and realistic than virtua tennis. There is also an in-depth training mode. The players also come across as resembling their real-life counter parts.

Therfore have a go at this - you shouldn't be disappointed!!

Have played this game for many hours now on the PSP. It is very addictive. It is definately the best tennis game I have played on a hand held console. Loads of different games and tournaments to try out. The Sound effects are brilliant. On the clay you can hear sliding and the players feet react as you really would. Even has Maria Sharapova grunting ( if that is a good thing!!). Noticed as well that the grass courts wear as the tournament progresses. Just a small detail but makes it more authentic. The main tournaments are fictional in that it isn't Wimbledon, Flushing Meadows etc but that doesn't spoil it. You can aquire different sponsorship deals and play doubles and mixed doubles, which again are very authentic most of the time. The only small gripe I have is that different tournaments around the world have the same stadium sometimes. Overall though, a must for tennis fans.

Overall However I must say that even though Smash Court Tennis 3 goes further in terms of playability than some other Tennis games, its major fault also lets the game down in terms of fluidity. The analogue control is really annoying and will leave you heading for the off switch on many of occasions. The online feature is a nice touch and to be honest for a PSP game it fairs well enough to be played for at least a month, but the repetitiveness will ease its way in soon enough. I do actually recommend this game to all Tennis fans as it takes on new elements that i'm sure Tennis Gamers will enjoy and beginners to love to play this also, but though enjoyable for a while, it disappoints there soon after. I suppose it would have been nice to see how the game would have evolved in terms of console compatibility for instance a PS2 or PS3 version.

As far as I am concerned, the key issue is not the graphics but the actual gameplay. It's almost impossible to fault the latter, even though the graphics beyond the actual tennis court and players could have used some work, i.e., when it comes to the mediocre replays, championship 'ceremonies', or the crowd in the stands when the camera pulls back (one hardly sees the fans in the normal court view, however, so it's not an issue when you're actually focused on playing). Most of the particulars of the game have been covered in previous reviews, but I couldn't agree more that the game feels remarkably real -- more so than with any other tennis game currently available. One has a proper variety of shot types to choose from (topspin, flat, slice, lob), all with their own accurately unique character. There are also some passive special shots you can acquire as you continue to progress in your tennis career (should you choose the pro-tour mode instead of the quicker arcade/exhibition ones). These include the running buggy-whip shot, diving volley, topspin lob, kick serve and side-spin slice. The game has a learning curve, though I did not find it terribly steep. It was actually satisfying NOT to be winning everything within ten minutes; any relative difficulty offers a real sense of your player's development over the course of your career. For those more interested in just jumping into things, there are modes in which you can play as Nadal, Federer, and others, with no prior work required, although one will still need to develop a sense of shot-timing even with the top players. The player and ball mechanics are excellent despite a very occasional glitch where your player can seemingly warp to a ball that looked out of reach.Read more ›
