That said, the kinect element of the game isn't that bad. The designers have come up with a way for your cyber-player to move around the width of a tennis court without actually running into the walls of your room. They have even found a strangely surreal way for you to approach the net and back up again - but it's not very effective and my player usually fluffs the overhead shot. The actual gesture-to-player operation isn't that good either. Top-spin seems to be okay, but slice is a train-wreck and the lob is non-existant as far as I can tell. Also directing the ball seems fairly arbitrary and you can't do a cunning drop-shot at all.
However, I'm actually rather hopeful - not with this game per se, but with the potential for tracking players using the kinect sensor. I can definitely see better and more effective sports games in the future Kinect world and await with bated breath the first golf simulator!
Purchasers should know that the Kinect content of this game is limited to an Exhibition match and one mini-game. For everything else you will have to revert to thumb-twitching. I've tried the regularly-controlled parts of the game and they're not really that good, but Virtua Tennis has always been an arcade emulator rather than a simulator.
The music is massively annoying - so I used options to turn it way down.
So 3 out of 5 for a reasonable attempt at using Kinect technology to recreate the feel of being 'inside' the game. But the anticipation of future and better-constructed titles is definitely there!
Why the game loses 2 stars is because of the tennis touring mode ,what were they thinking when they changed the old wta and apt tennis tour season ,why break a very good season mode for a weak season board game.
Another gripe i have in the game is the reduced lineup of real life tennis professionals in the game,the line is made of strong players feder ,venus williams and so but i was very disapponted that they removed Becker and edberg .
Virtual tennis is like a snicker bar that has its weight reduced but not the price 48 g to 41g.
Virtua tennis is not worth picking up for full retail price ,but you can have a very good game of tennis with this game,i would wait until it goes down
in price then pick it up, i picked it up under 5 pounds.
Now that is probably my favourite part of the game & it plays very well but you cannot play season mode on kinect only exhibition matches.
Career mode in my eyes is not anything like playing a career as tennis player, it's Basically going round the world on a snakes n ladder type board trying to avoid pitfalls & land on tournaments & training modes with other little extras added in. Also a career only last a year.
That may sound worse than it actually is but it's not a great way to play a game that is essentially good when playing tennis or training.
In a day & age where we are trying to get sports games to be as accurate as possible to the game then this really fails until playing the game. FIFA, tiger woods, maddden etc all manage to get a feel of their sport.
If EA or someone decided to do the same with tennis, then this game would be obsolete. It doesn't know what it is, a very good tennis game but all the other stuff is almost child's play.

its rubbish, its cant see your hand movements quickly
i just threw this disc away
Not really played it much, but wanted to play as it was linked to Kinect. However, the core game does not rely on the Kinect! Only single games allow the Kinect feature. Read morePublished 7 months ago by Mr. Julian Martin
