Excerpt: I can't remember where or why i bought this., but I do know why i keep playing it. It's a nice tennis game, the best for the playstation by a mile. It looks very crisp and simple to use, although the japanese music and sound effects on the menu screen are very irritable. There are several game modes, arcade where you can enter a tournament with a partner or by yourself; exhibition where you play a single match; tutorial pretty good place to start; and the main piece the...
Smash Court Tennis: Pro Tournament 2 - an ACE game
5 August 2007
Excerpt: I have three tennis games, and Smash Court Tennis: Pro Tournament 2 is by far and away my favourite. I really am quite addicted to it! By now, the game is quite old, but this is no problem at all, except for the fact that the players are a bit “past it”. You can still play as Tim Henman, Juan Carlos Ferrero, Richard Gasquet, James Blake, Lindsay Davenport and Venus Williams amongst others.
Pros: Nice and simple, with a good gameplay system . Very enjoyable .
Excerpt: Smash court tennis 2 may be nearly 3 years old now, but its still got potential to be one of the best Tennis sims on the PS2. The first outing saw a brave attempt at trying to capture new fans for the sport and succeeded on various level, but its smash court 2 that really improves where other games lay dead and unheard of. The controls are much more fluid and life life and you can now really get into the match as you smash, volley or lob your way around the court.
Summary: Really good fun, with very realistic gameplay. If you play tennis then the timing and positioning are here just as important to hit that killer shot although the beginner will also be able to hoik it over the net without to much hassle. The musak is awfull but you can turn it off, I could not find anyway of turning off the between point flyby's of the crowd and players. You can get rid of these just by pressing X at the time though.
Excerpt: There are many features on this game to master, as you can have many careers starting out as an amateur player, it allows you to really practice and get to number one in a very short space of time. The career side of it is well designed, allowing you to train your player to be an all rounder, as well as being the best looking on the courts, as you can buy new clothes as you earn more points. Along with buying tennis racquets and other much needed gear.
Summary: I've played almost every sports sim going so the most important aspect of any game for me is the gameplay. If it's cricket you're after then Brian Lara is your man, PES 4 for football fans, Madden is the NFL's main man and ice hockey doesn't come any better than EA's NHL games. If you agree with me then you'll also agree with me that Smash Court Tennis Pro Tournament 2 is the best tennis sim. When you win a point you really feel as though you've earnt it.
Summary: I had lots of anticipation for this game, the first day it was delivered, i must've played on it for like 8 hours. It has a lot to offer, and the pro tour mode really has been imrpved a lot. But, it just got too repetitive. Adding up the time i've played on pro tour with different characters, it comes up to just under 24 hours. It lasted quite long, but it just didn't have anything new or surpriing once you unlocked everything.
Summary: this game is good for people who play tennis reguarly. with andy roddick lyten hewitt tiger tim and juan carlos ferrero. they play like they do in real life. with the andy roddick sercve as powerful as in real life. you can get pro tour were you start with a low rank and enter tournaments at your own will and make oyur self no.1 in the world!!! (takes time to get used to. about half a day!
Summary: This is my first taste of a tennis game...When I first played a two player singles game I was a little disappointed. The gameplay was simple and rather bland. This is the same for the Arcade mode. The Pro Tour is the only reason to buy the game. Starting 250th in the world makes you feel rather small so you want to keep playing to improve!
Summary: This is a great sports game and one which takes a unique approach to the career mode, in that instead of forcing you to play through whole matches, it pitches you into the action at key turning points in the game. It then works out the rest of the game results for you. This is a superb idea and one which other sports developers should consider as it allows you to play through several seasons without spending weeks in front of your PS2.
