Virtua Tennis 2009 Review

VideoGamer.com
8 February 2010
  • Excerpt: In the ten years since Virtua Tennis was released in arcades, it's hardly changed. Sure, the graphics have improved a bit, and the player roster has kept up with the times, but for all intents and purposes it's exactly the same game now that it's always been. Virtua Tennis 2009 is yet another in the series that shows just how slowly SEGA's famed franchise is evolving. Playing the game sparks mixed emotions.

  • Excerpt: As some of you know, I’m a tennis fan. I played in high school and I still play today (and I’m actually quite good, despite my very un-tennis-like 6’3, 220lbs. frame), which is why I’m always looking for the next great virtual incarnation that will capture my attention during periods of bad weather.

  • Excerpt: It’s always something of a surprise when a time-honoured (or well-known at the very least) videogame franchise, usually able to deliver an overall solid and enjoyable experience, fails to elicit a favourable reaction with its latest edition, but this is the case with Virtua Tennis 2009.

  • Excerpt: Summer is back! We Brits like nothing better after a season of drinking lager and watching football than to break out the fruit squash, strawberries and cream and place our finest tennis players on a giant pedestal so we can grieve for the rest of the summer when they fail to win Wimbledon. Thanks to Sega, you can relive the glorious highs of the making it all the way to the semi-final before getting knocked out, just like your heroes.

  • Excerpt: “If it ain’t broke don’t fix it”. This mantra is often cited in regards to sequels of all kinds. Once a successful formula is found, why change the core mechanics? In movie sequels this often leads to recycled plots with bigger explosions, in video game sequels this often leads to recycled plots with bigger explosions and more gore. Sports games don’t have the luxury of explosions or gore to entice their target.

PlayStation Universe
27 May 2009
  • Summary: While Virtua Tennis 2009 is little more than an upgraded version of VT3, it still offers an enjoyable gameplay experience and is a must buy for any fan of the franchise or genre.
  • Pros: The smooth offline/online integration, How the new camera angle adds a new dimension to the gameplay, The fast moving, flowing rallies
  • Cons: Player stumbling -- it's just as irritating as player diving, How lag could potentially ruin online play, Playing Virtua Tennis v3.5

Virtua Tennis 2009 (Preview)

19 April 2009
  • Excerpt: We were recently invited by Sega to a hands on session with the forthcoming Virtua Tennis 2009 behind closed doors. Even with our limited time spent with the game I am already sure that this could very well be the best iteration of the game yet.
