Summary: I have recently purchased this game. I THINK I like it, but I keep losing 6-0. I have only played it twice but I cant get to the ball quick enough to return it, when it returns out of reach. Any suggestions or am I just too slow?
Summary: If you are a big tennis fan like I am, I do not recommend this game, there are newer versions of tennis games now. The problem i had with this game itself was that when i was playing it there is nothing new, no real excitement. Just game after game, the same tournaments. The same tournaments are played in tennis yes i know, but this game had no thrill to it, no real excitment. Once you have completed a tournament it is repeated again.
Summary: I have bought and completed this game, and it is great. The problem is i have no other tennis game to compare it to. Every review i have read says it's the best, so i'm just waiting for a better PS2 tennis game to replace it.As i said it is great, but im just looking for a bit more realism in the training modes and a new tennis game that will blow Virtua tennis away graphically.
Excerpt: "...and luckily this didn't dissapoint! Virtua Tennis 2 is the kind of game that you can sit and play for hours on end and forget what time it is, or how long you have been playing for. The career mode is highly enjoyable, taking a small player to the top of the world- but it won't be easy! You will really get stuck into the game, cheering your player on and shouting at the linesman for calls which you know are in, but cannot bear to lose the point! ...
Pros: Fast flowing gameplay, colourful, great multiplayer
Cons: not many selectable characters, can be too short, poor sound
Summary: This is a quality tennis game. Having played other tennis games I can safely say that this is the best. A very good arade style game, with a strong career mode and an excellent multiplayer or singleplayer arcade. In career mode you start of 300th in the world, and very bad stats you have to enter into tournaments to get up your ranking and to win money, to buy better raquets, shoes etc. You also do a number of challanes to get up your stats.
Excerpt: "...Of Rage, SEGA Rally and Virtua Racing (perhaps distantly related to Virtua Tennis?) to name just a few. All these titles received home-console adaptations; proudly showcased as ‘exclusives’, and naturally released only on Sega’s own machines. Virtua Tennis 2, first released into the arcades back in 1999, was no different – Sega hoped it would help spearhead the challenge of their new next-generation console, the Dreamcast. However, times change ...
Pros: Playable and fun, nice court - design, World Tour concept, training games
Cons: Matches last games rather than sets, only 16 players, can be completed in a matter of days, some long loading times
Excerpt: "Virtua tennis 2 is a remake of virtua tennis. It has male and female players with their abilities from tennis put into the game. There is a world tour mode in which you design your own player and work your way through the ranks of tennisdom to become a star. You collect rackets, clothes, courts and special items. You train up your player until you are as good as you like, the best rating is master. You play mixed doubles, men’s and women’s singles ...
Pros: carachters from the real world with real abilities
Summary: Bought this game and haven't stopped playing it. It has superb gameplay and is extremely addictive. I bought this as i had played it in arcades over the years and it is even better on the PS2. Anyone would like the game. I urge anyone and everyone to buy it now!!!!!
Summary: There are tennis games and then there is Virtua Tennis 2! It's absolutely brilliant! The graphics are bright, vibrant and highly detailed! The motion capture is very good and the stars like Rafter, Henman and Moya really do bear resemblance to their real life counter parts. Except Henman looks a little to beefy and on steroids in this game! However the control method is the real winner though! I don't think you will ever get better, intuitive arcade controls on any game!
