Summary: I had great expectations of this product after thoroughly enjoying the original Grand Slam on the Wii. Alas, my expectations were dashed due to the lousy game play. The graphics are great and player selection adequate, but the use of the Move Controller (my Primary reason for buying this) is very difficult with this game.
Summary: After pouring 15 hours into this game, I have good news and bad news. Good news is although the new innovative control system looked a little bit doubtful, it does have a learning curve, not as steep as Top spin 4, but still you will improve skills over a long course of play and have fun from it. The bad news is that the game was NOT designed to be simulation to tennis and the game mode was severely unbalanced (killed some fun).
Summary: problem #1 serve and volley How many current pro players are serve and volley specialists? I would say NONE among top 10 or top 20 ATP/WTA players. This game certainly overemphasizes volley skill. It is pretty much the only way to win in this game. Even Sharapova can approach the net 22 time in a 6-0 set (about 40 points total). When famous pro players are included in a game, you would expect to see them playing their own styles.
Summary: When I learned that this game was finally going to hit PS3 and XBOX 360, alot of joy & excitement filled my head. I had heard a number of people talk about how they enjoyed it on the Wii. Surely it was going to be even better on the main consoles but sadly, I was very wrong. It begs the question, why can't anyone make a great tennis game. Top Spin 4 was close but they had attributes & competition wrong. Virtual tennis has zero interest in simulation.
Summary: I rarely make reviews but having recently bought and played this shambles of a tennis game I thought i'd warn others from buying it. If you like easy games with no challenge this is the game for you, it's ridiculous how easy it is to win matches. I think i've dropped 2 games in about 5 tournaments so far on career mode even against Federer and Nadal, the best players on the game and I am beating them with ease.
Summary: The Move sensitivity of this game is somewhat suspect: the sensor doesn't recognise backhands from forehands, or topspin shots from chops. Essentially, the game does what it wants as long as the punter swings the Move controller in some semblance of coherence. It does keep my little son occupied as he fancies himself Nadal one day and Federer the next.
