2.0 out of 5 stars Virtua tennis wii 2009 hmm maybe it's just me!!!!, 27 Jun. 2009
This review is from: Virtua Tennis 2009 (Wii) (Video Game)
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. The grunting in VT is annoying, yes the women grunt (some may like i just found it strange, not realistic!!)

The Menu - GST wins again a very polished game, really good, VT just feels half finished, like it's been rushed out

So to summerise i wanted to like VT more, im not a huge EA sports fan and enjoyed VT on the PSP but if your looking for a realistic tennis game than get GST, if you want a ok looking game with poor gameplay go for VT. In my view how the 3 tennis games i've now played on wii rate is

number 3 VT 4/10
Number 2 Wii sports 5/10
Number 1 Grand slam (it's nor perfect but it's the best tennis experience to date) 7/10
