Summary: First of all I was a huge fan of the Virtua tennis games on PS2 but since it has became available on PS3 I have to say that I am thoroughly disappointed with it. The graphics are ok but when the players come up to speak to you all we get are subtitles and lip movement rather than hear them speak. The Create a Player is very poor indeed (no fun character options) plus I can't see that I can edit my player's features or hair style once it is saved.
Excerpt: As a huge fan of tennis and inparticularly the rival game to this 'Topspin', I thought I would give this a try while I waited for Topspin 3 to come out and I have to say that I honestly wish I had not wasted my £40. There can be absolutely no doubt that the graphics are superb and the core basics of the game of tennis are there, but there is just no depth to the game and it doesn't seem to have moved on since the very first version to the arcades by storm.
Excerpt: "Virtua Tennis is not what I was looking for when I first got it. It was one of the first releases for the PS3 and it didn't meet my expectations for a next gen console. I felt the game seemed very amateurish because the game almost seemed like a cartoon. I feel you are very limited in the options that you can play and feel that you cannot be enough players and can only participate in 4 different tournaments. I also feel that you cannot be enough ...
Excerpt: On the face of it this is a very slick and attractive game however when the initial novelty wears off you are left feeling slightly deflated by a game the promised so much yet delivered very little. The fact the graphics are great, especially when played on a HDTV, should go with the territory of the PS3 console considering the wait fans of the Sony brand waited. The gameplay, i.e. how you play shots etc, is similar is not exactly the same as other titles in this series.
A Game that plays well and looks good but overall is nothing different than the rest.

Excerpt: Being used as one of the launch titles for the PS3 and being produced by Sega, Virtua Tennis 3 was always going to sell well and get crave reviews, but has the game itself evolved enough to stay up there with the overhaul of new games already destined for the PS3? Plainly the answer lies whether or not you are a tennis fan or not as we shall see below.

Summary: Hi all, VT3 is a great game, since its incarnation in arcades and seamless translation to the fabulous Dreamcast console this title is still at the forefront of Tennis games. However what are Sony/Sega doing...this PS3 version has absolutley no online capabilities....this is 2007, are they kidding.
Excerpt: ...SULLO SPORT CHE HO ACQUISTATO VIRTUA TENNIS 3 E' STATO UNO DI ESSI...L'HO COMPRATO QUALCHE TEMPO FA E QUALCHE VOLTA CI GIOCO ANCORA ADESSO ANCHE SE ATTUALMENTE SUL MERCATO SI TROVA NETTAMENTE DI MEGLIO...VIRTUA TENNIS 3 COMUNQUE RESTA UN BUON GIOCO: PUOI SCEGLIERE TRA VARI PERSONAGGI CHE HANNO LE SEMBIANZE DEI GIOCATORI DI TENNIS REALI, LA GRAFICA NON E' IL MASSIMO MA NEANCHE MALVAGIA, I SUOI USATI SONO PIACEVOLI...BISOGNA PRENDERE BENE IL TEMPO PRIMA ...
Excerpt: MUY MALO... lo compre usado y me desiluciono 100%.. las 2 estrellas son solo por que los jugadores por lo menos sacan y tienen movimientos como sus movimientos reales.. pero la jugabilidad es muy basica, eso de tirarse al suelo todo el rato es muy falso y NO TENER NINGUNA MARCA ES RIDICULO, desde como el 2000 o antes yo creo, ya habia juegos deportivos con licencias de marcas.. esta ridiculez de juego no tiene ninguna.. muy fome Y lo otro..
