Excerpt: Virtua Tennis is a great game and has loads of different modes/levels to play on. The game is also quiet simple to play as all you need to mainly use are two buttons. The graphics are excellent, sound is crisp and the attention to detail makes the game even more enjoyable. The amount of real life sceanrios bought into the game is excellent, i.e playing on clay is a slow as compared to grass which is a much faster surface, this is taken into consideration when playing the...
Excerpt: To help me with this review, I've enlisted the aid of commentator Dan Maskull. (Not), with his dulcet tones to provide the match commentary. 'It's a glorious sunny afternoon, here at the Old England championships, and the players are just coming out on centre court. And here he is, stepping out to tumultuous applause, the crowds favourite and England's newest Tennis sensation, the top seed, World number 1 and reigning champion - Callan Cool!
Pros: Easy gameplay, decent graphics
Cons: Can't save games in arcade Mode, No commentary
Excerpt: Between me and my brother we now have almost the entire Dreamcast games collection and so when we say a game is good we know what we're talking about. Sadly this one isnt good... it's FANTASTIC! The first thing you'll notice is the intro, or lack of one, great! That leaves more room on the disc for all the other features that are crammed into this one, who wants to watch a replay of tennis greats anyway, its only ever worth watching the first time.
Pros: Superb graphics, Superb carear mode, superb gameplay, Overall superb - even to non - tennis fans .
Excerpt: Virtua Tennis has to be the greatest ever Tennis game and is now in my eyes the undisputed world champion Sports game the world has ever seen. Created by Sega, this has to be the game that will win over playstation and N64 owners and convert them to Dreamcast. The graphics are outstanding with incredibly detail and accuracy to the players' expressions and reactions. There are 8 players to start with (all 8 are real players!
Excerpt: Last month, my mum brought me a Dreamcast as a graduation present. Having never been a fan of Sega’s final console, I can’t say I knew much about what games to buy to accompany my new console: but there was one that I knew I wanted from the second I opened the box. Virtua Tennis had been the scourge of City University’s 2nd XI Wednesday nights last year, as the dreaded arcade machine in the corner of the Student Union bar choked up coin after coin of our money.
Excerpt: TITLE: VIRTUA TENNIS FORMAT: PS2 PUBLISHER: SEGA Virtua Tennis. Sounds about as interesting as....well.....something very dull. This is a game which has been rated highly in all online and offline magazines but why? IT’S TENNIS!!! Boring, long-winded do I need to go on? Actually, no I don’t.
Excerpt: Tennis. A word that conjures images in my mind of strawberries and cream and boredom. But when I play this masterpiece, I blow those images away, for there is none of that in 'Virtua Tennis' (VT). The boredom factor has been replaced by excitement, cunning, skill, patience and understanding. So how did this happen? Why am I playing a game that would normally send me brain dead from a couple of minutes in front of the TV?
Pros: Gameplay, graphics, so much to see and do
Cons: Crap music, the fact that this game is so good it's got me saying "I'll give you a tennisin' lesson"
Excerpt: When i was first given the crontroller and started playing i looked like a muppet with a tennis racquet, but 2 minutes later me and three of my friends were engaged in a world class doubles tennis match! the game has so much potential for fun in the multiplayer world! The hours that have been burnt playing that game are incredible and you never get sick of it!
Pros: Fantastic fun, easy controls, simple to play
Cons: inability to play multiple sets in multiplayer
