Excerpt: The well established golf game franchise, Hot Shots, has traded its clubs for a racket--and oh what a racket it is. After ten years of making fun and accessible golf games, Hot Shots Tennis arrives, attempting to adapt Hot Shots Golf's winning formula and turn it into another lucrative franchise.
Excerpt: Hot Shots Golf has been a staple for developer Clan Hanz, as over the past 10 years Sony has employed the developer to work on only one franchise. Until two years ago, when development of a Hot Shots branded tennis game went into development for the PS2.
Conclusion: A solid foundation and pretty walls aren't of much use if there's nothing inside to actually make the place habitable. That's precisely what Hot Shots Tennis is; pretty from the outside, solid, but without anything on the inside. Shame, really.
