Virtua Tennis 3

AV Club
24 March 2008
  • Conclusion: For those with fragile egos who also like jumping rope without the rope, this is a perfect game, as you'll rarely hit the ball out. But hardcore tennis fans should stick with Top Spin 2 .
  • Pros: The variety of mini-games is fantastic, but nothing beats the curling, where you'll knock the stones forward with tennis balls to score points.
  • Cons: The lack of winners is downright irritating, and it's all because of the Boris Becker-like diving. You'll flatten your thumb trying to earn a winner.

Virtua Tennis 3

Strategy Informer
24 January 2008
  • Excerpt: For many sports game fans, Sega’s Virtua Tennis series has always marked the apex of quality and accessibility that so many lesser titles strive to achieve yet rarely manage to imitate. Without the additional play mechanics inherent in other titles such as TopSpin 2, the Virtua Tennis team somehow manages to produce a title with more depth and tactical play simply by combining deft usage of the analogue sticks and a well-honed shot placement system developed over...

Serving Up Great Tennis Action

  • Excerpt: In Virtua Tennis 3 you hit the courts as one of 20 of today's top ranked stars including: Venus Williams, Maria Sharapova, Andy Roddick, Rafael Madal, or Roger Federer or as a custom player you create for yourself on one of 25 courts from around the world. Even if you are not very good at tennis, this game is easy to pickup the basics, though it can take quite a while to master the different swings. Some of us are still working on the last part.

  • Conclusion: This the last time I'll say it: this game needed online play. I've already spent a bazillion hours with the first two games, and what would have made this feel truly fresh would have been playing against other vets. Consider me bummed.

  • Conclusion: Alas, but for this omission Virtua Tennis 3 delivers. Thrillpower is there for the taking and I personally have ploughed more time into this game than any other. But the lack of online competition may be too much for many to bear. Awesome, long lasting fun that could ... should ... have been so much more.
  • Pros: Fluid, precise action that makes you forget about all that next generation malarkey., Genuinely fun to play - and career mode is recommended., Playing with mates is massive fun...
  • Cons: ...so why no online play? What is that all about?

Empire Online

  • Summary: While Nintendo has made sterling efforts to evolve digital athletics with its motion sensitive shenanigans, for its PS3 debut Sega has opted to stick with the indomitable formula that made Virtua Tennis the most gripping sports simulation on any console. And with the graphical muscle of Sony’s new machine bringing this latest edition to life, VT3 is one of the most satisfying sports sims around, whether you’re a tennis fan or not.

  • Excerpt: De retour sur les courts, Virtua Tennis 3 s'apprête à breaker tous les passionnés de Tennis. Exceptionnellement beau, nouveau gameplay, un mode carrière repensé et toujours les mini-jeux.
