Virtua Tennis 2 (PS2): Virtua tennis wins game set and match
31 March 2010
Summary: After playing the original on the now retired Dreamcast, I was very interested to see how this would stand up when a second game came out on the playstation 2. This was something of a mega hit on the dreamcast and it's appeal was worldwide, being one of the bigger titles on the Dreamcast. Therefore when I saw it fall to a very affordable 10.00 I snapped it up on the ps2.
Pros: Lots of tennis players, good graphics, responsive
Cons: Can be tricky mastering shots and the skills test
Summary: Virtua Tennis 2 is a great knockabout tennis game for the PS2. Although a little dated now and much better tennis sims being available, this is an excellent cheap alternative. The gameplay takes a little getting used to as you have to get the player into position early and swing early to hit the shot with maximum power but once you've realised this then the game is great fun.
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.
Virtua Tennis 2 (PS2): Improve your ball skills!!!
10 December 2006
Summary: Virtua Tennis is a game franchise you may have come across at the arcades, and thankfully over the years various console editions have gone on sale. Today we will be reviewing the PlayStation 2 version of the game known as Virtua Tennis 2 (VT2) in Europe, released November 2002. In North America the game is called Sega Sports Tennis. VT2 is a game you can choose to play by yourself, or with 3 other people.
Pros: Great gameplay, fine control system, fantastic depth, multiplayer = fun
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
