Virtua Tennis 4 World Tour – Review (PS Vita)
14 March 2012
Conclusion: If you’re a tennis fan and haven’t tried Virtua Tennis, this is worth playing. If you’ve played any of the previous games, this game offers nothing it didn’t before this millennium. That should say more than enough.
Excerpt: Ever since its debut on the Sega Dreamcast, Virtua Tennis has managed to bring the simplicity of the sport effectively to the mainstream gaming audience. Whether you’re a hardened pro that knows their aces from their loves, or someone who just wants to swing a racket at a ball, there’s something for everyone to enjoy in these games. Last year brought a new high point for the series with Virtua Tennis 4 , complete with new mini-games, a robust World Tour, and online...
Summary: The video game industry is a funny one isn’t it? Just last week we were talking about how underused tennis tends to be as the focus of sports games, and two are released within a week of each other. Rather than complaining of course, we’re only too happy to take all we can get. If you read our Grand Slam Tennis 2 review , you’ll have noticed that we mentioned how the game expertly straddled the boundaries of both arcade and simulation style tennis to serve up one of the...
Virtua Tennis 4: World Tour Edition (PS Vita) Review
2 September 2013
Excerpt: My first time with the Virtua Tennis series was on SEGA’s ill-fated Dreamcast. I had a hoot with the game as it brought the world of tennis into my living room in a fun and very enjoyable manner. Since that time I have dabbled in playing other tennis games, including subsequent versions of Virtua Tennis, but none of them had the pizazz or zest that made me love the original. Well times are a changin’, and I actually have that same feeling I did when I first played the...
Excerpt: During a release of a new handheld system, the launch titles always seem to include some sort of port of a console sport title. The trend continues on the brand new PlayStation Vita , which is selling itself as a portable device that offers a home console experience on the go. What better way to sell you this idea than actually showing games that were on home consoles now running in the palm of your hand?
Conclusion: Virtua Tennis 4: World Tour Edition is a solid tennis game that transfers the PS3 experience onto the PlayStation Vita. It looks great, plays well in the arcade mode and controls as if you are using a controller. There are some less than stellar new mini-games and the career mode isn’t as fluid as it could be, but the biggest tissue that might stop a fan running out to make the purchase is that there’s really no reason to play it over the PS3 version, unless portability...
Summary: Wenn Sega nicht nachbessert, sind die Online-Matches eine Totgeburt! Eine so drastische Verzögerung darf sich ein Spiel um Reaktionsgeschwindigkeit einfach nicht erlauben. Dabei verbirgt sich hinter dem Untertitel "World Tour Edition" tatsächlich das komplette Spiel und das ist beachtlich. Immerhin stecken sämtliche Spielvarianten, die komplette Karriere sowie dieselbe Technik in diesem Virtua Tennis.
