Summary: SMASH COURT TENNIS PRO TOURNAMENT This game is tough, man. Yes, I know, in saying that I am doing the equivalent of blaming my racquet for not making a shot. But it can get a little frustrating, okay? I'm warning you. Just back off. What you gotta do is spent a little time training and playing in the smaller tournaments. Even so, most games start off easy, before rising up to completely crush your ego, enthusiasm and the will to live.
Summary: Spent my money on this game and...well...it's not fun. It's more difficult than Sega Sports Tennis to master and if you're not at the right place at the right time, you miss the ball. Gets frustrating. The graphics leave a LOT to be desired and there are not many options for screen (video/audio/display) controls. You CANNOT create your own players. Characters are VERY slow to react/move. Sorry Namco...you blew it! I would like my money back please.
Summary: i like the game a lot. But there is only 4 of each. I am wondering why don't they have the Williams on here. Where was the last time u saw Anna Ko. at the top ? i can understand davenport, hinigs, and seles but they could have put in at least a william.
Summary: All of the other criticisms you've read are right on: disappointing camera angle, baffling scoring for arcade and tournament play, the weakest shot is the serve (it's hard, but not impossible to aim your serve -- I did it a couple of times by accident), Hingis and Kornikova attack way more than the real players do. This game has 3 levels: easy, normal, and hard. Easy is for beginners.
Summary: First of all, great game. The AI is fantastic and looks very real as you see the players react to and prepare for shots. This game does it better than any other tennis game I have seen. Incredible detail. Some of the playability is fantastic as well. For example using slice (rather than topspin) to return serve against a net rusher works as well here as it does in the real game. Kudos to the designers for that! BUT....
