Summary: When I started playing this, I could not win a point. I was hitting every ball back, not with a lot of pace or direction, but it takes time. You have to find a groove and learn how to play. Then it becomes really fun. My 'small complaint' is that it doesn't have Kim Clijsters, who is my favorite player. Maybe she had retired for the first time when this was made. But it does have Henin, who is my second favorite.
Summary: What is this garbage? This game has bad controls first of all. It will take a couple days to master. The graphics themselves are fairly impressive for the ds, but it's all downhill from there. I found multiple problems with sound and you can get bored of this easily.
Summary: When I first started playing this game, much like other reviewers, I was extremely frustrated. Let me take it issue by issue to make this easier to read. 1. This is a hard game to master. But once you do, it is a lot of fun. It's about knowing the controls. One thing that would have helped this game a lot is if the instructional packet was more comprehensive. There are some bars and certain things in the game that are not explained in the manual.
Summary: This game is way better than the topspin 3 on the Xbox of PS3. Those games take away your ability to get a head start on where you think the ball is going to go. With that said, this game lacks some options. You can create your own player....unless you want him/her to be left handed. Then you are SOL. The created character also doesn't have a choice between backhands. And you don't have one. Some matches my guy hits a one handed bakchand...sometimes two handed.
Summary: Having to make the player move to the ball is stupid. When you play tennis, you naturally move to the ball to hit it. This game requires one button for you to get to the ball and another to hit it when you're in the right spot. It's not intuitive like real tennis. The player should go to the ball automtically and the game should revolve around hitting the ball using various spins, depth etc. As it is, just getting the player to the ball is half 3/4 of the battle.
