  • Summary: Hot Shots Tennis' gameplay is smooth and accessible, but the light-hearted, charming graphics and slick presentation adds much to its appeal. As stated earlier, the anime-characters are very cute and animated nicely which definitely brings the game to life vividly as do the humorous voice-overs. The game frequently shows replays and cut-scenes between volleys as well, which adds to its overall light-hearted feel.

  • Excerpt: If you took a poll of avid Sports Gamers and asked them for their “sleeper” franchise on the market today you would, likely, be bombarded with a slew of different answers. From one hit wonders to small development games, PC exclusives to text-based sims, the list would be as diverse as the industry itself.

  • Excerpt: For the past nine years, the Hot Shots series has given countless people who otherwise wouldn’t touch a golf game the ability to enjoy them thanks to their easy-to-learn gameplay, and has also appealed to die-hard gamers by also delivering an in-depth golf experience underneath its cutesy exterior. Now, Clap Hanz (who’s taken the series’ development over from Camelot, who created Mario Tennis) is taking a crack at applying that same concept to a tennis game.

  • Excerpt: Hot Shots Golf is a reasonably well-known arcade-style golf game. Naturally, then, it was only a matter of time before the company that created that game would try its hand at other sports. Hot Shots Tennis is the result of that further experimentation. But is Hot Shots Tennis a tennis game that is worth playing or is it better left on the shelf? Read on to find out.

  • Excerpt: Though Sony's 'Hot Shots' franchise has been around for generations, it's always been about golf. Now the goofball gaming with fatheaded chortling characters, frightfully whimsical music, and indulgently accessible controls has a go at tennis.

  • Excerpt: Before Hot Shots Tennis, the Hot Shots series has focused exclusively on golf. The golf games have been known for their cartoon style and easy-to-learn gameplay and now that style has been applied to the sport of tennis. Does Hot Shots work as a tennis game? Not entirely as something was lost in the move from the links to the clay.

  • Excerpt: Clap Hanz (no, don’t clap your hands just yet) is the developer behind the popular Hot Shots Golf series. They are back in the foray with this exclusive PlayStation 2 tennis game named Hot Shots Tennis (no surprise there). The game is initially at Love : Love, let’s see where it goes from there. There is a training mode that you can start off with to get a feel for things while learning to volley, smash and get general practice.
