Product Description

Amazon.co.uk Review

Video games publishers have an uncanny knack of ensuring that the only time of year a new tennis game is never released is during the middle of Wimbledon. Of course, in the case of Virtua Tennis: World Tour they had to wait until the PSP hit the shops, so its autumnal appearance is largely unavoidable.

What is curious though, is that despite being regarded by many as the best serious tennis simulation, the Virtua Tennis series has only made fleeting appearances on the current generation of consoles. It’s getting in on the ground floor with the PSP though, with what will likely become the definitive portable tennis game.

The gameplay is largely the same as the previous Dreamcast and PS2 versions with an apparently simplistic arcade style control system revealing surprising depth and subtlety over time. It translates well to the PSP controls and the graphics are almost identical to the home console versions.

Virtua Tennis features three basic game modes -- World Tour, Exhibition and Tournament -- plus four mini-games and a 16 player (although obviously not all on the same court) wireless multiplayer mode. You can create and customise your own character but 14 "real" tennis players are also included, such as Roger Federer, Venus Williams, Andy Roddick, Maria Sharapova, Lleyton Hewitt, Lindsay Davenport and Tim Henman. Obviously you’ll need at least a passing interest in real tennis to really appreciate the game, but as long as that’s the case there’s no need for new balls here. -- Harrison Dent

Sega's Virtua Tennis series has never been one to dissappoint, although one of the few criticisms of the series is how little it has changed over the years. Those hoping for a revolutionary reshuffle of the series should turn elswhere, as this differs little from past outlets of the series. What it lacks in originality however it makes up for in finesse and style of gameplay; this is one of the deepest, most intense tennis outings to date. The gameplay is slick and smooth, offering a decent variety of playing styles, and the Ai opponents vary with a near perfect degree of difficulty. Not only that but the in-game animation is as slick and as smooth as we've seen from the PSP, almost rivalling that of its PS2 counterparts.

The first option available is a one off Exhibition mode, where you can choose between sixteen ATP and WTA players including the likes of Federer, Roddick, Hewitt and Maria Sharapova. Each character is classified according to their strengths, and this is uesful when choosing the right player for your playing style. The exhibition mode also allows you to choose any of 29 World Tour locations, the majority of which have to be bought in the World Tour mode before they are accessible for exhibition matches.

The World Tour mode features a character customisation feature, where you create a male and female player, tweaking everything from their build to their hair colour. The players begin with abysmal levels of skill, which is increased through mini-games designed to tweak certain aspects of your players' style. This is a great feature, as it allows you to develop your players' style to your own customisation, right up to the 'master' classification of maximum stats all round.

A really easy to use entertaining game. The graphics are great (but then again i'm not a computer junkie so you can beg to differ!) the game play is easy, though some of the characters are outdated. Play a tournament as Roger Federer or try to become World No.1 yourself (which can get tiresome). There is one thing that i have against this game is that it will freeze for a split second mid shot or move and it really is annoying! Otherwise a great game to play.

very good game has world tour mode in which to choose a male and female player and you work your way to being worlds best and it has quick match mode and minigames and quick tournaments and if you know someone else with the game you can play them.
