Conclusion: It difficult for Virtua Tennis 4 arrived a few weeks after the excellent Top Spin 4. Indeed, the title Sega unfortunately suffers from the comparison and it is clear he is far to high. While it is undoubtedly more accessible, and again, but this does not hide the many defects which he suffers: depth of gameplay , sensation, realistic, soundtrack, game fun, etc. ..
Conclusion: En dépit de sa prise en main immédiate et fortement accessible, Virtua Tennis 4 dispose de lacunes qui commencent sérieusement à se faire sentir. Cela se révèle tout particulièrement au niveau de la réalisation graphique. Si le moteur n'est pas vraiment médiocre, il s'avère désormais peu compétitif, face à ce qui se fait désormais du côté de la concurrence.
Pros: Prise en main accessible et immédiate, Mode carrière intéressant, Mini-jeux amusants à plusieurs
Cons: Réalisation graphique et sonore à la traîne, Jouabilité moyenne au PlayStation Move, Tour Mondial assez court, IA prévisible
Summary: Virtua Tennis 4 is a fine addition to the series, and it’s great to have AM3 taking back the reigns from Sumo Digital. There are a few gameplay issues, and female pros are definitely treated as second rate compared to the men, but the game looks great and is an amazing amount of fun. World Tour will have you hooked for days as you create new tennis players and try to outdo each previous season.
Excerpt: Virtua Tennis 4 finds itself in the awkward position. It's a long-running series with a fan base that expects a certain style of play. At the same time, there's the pressure associated with motion controls, which have led to a near complete reformat of how sports games are played. The result is an awkward mix of both that doesn't completely disappoint, but doesn't excite. Player models offer a great visual representation of what gameplay offers.
Excerpt: Regardless of how much competition it may or may not have had along the way, Virtua Tennis has always been the standard for its sport. With the release of Virtua Tennis 4, SEGA is showing no signs of slowing down and among many updates has introduced a World Tour system that encourages more than simple court domination.
Conclusion: When the main reason I keep coming back is a thirty second mini-game, we have a problem. Really though, the game does the absolute minimum to be considered "good." While it's fun there's nothing that keeps you coming back for more. Shame, really.
Excerpt: Virtua Tennis 4 gives you plenty of options in how you can choose to play. Firstly, there is a handy "Practice" mode that will teach you the fundamentals. In "Exhibition" mode you pick either your user-created character or one of the 18 pros who lent their likenesses to the game, including Federer, Nadal, Murray, Sharapova, Williams, and Ivanovic.
