  • Excerpt: Smash Court Tennis 3 has a lot of things going for it, as long as you the reader know what you are getting yourself into. This Playstation Portable game is a wonderful tennis simulation. If you walked onto a tennis court you would not start to dominate the professional players. Namco Bandai has done an excellent job in teaching gamers humility. Winning is possible, but it takes a lot of training and hard work.

  • Excerpt: You may not tune into Wimbeldon each year, so you may not know how many times one of the Williams sisters' names has appeared on the list of champions there. You may never have played tennis, or you may play enough to think that nothing on PSP could spark your interest, compared to time on the real court.

There's Just a Bit Too Much Order in the Court

  • Conclusion: Don't get this game for the variety of modes. Get it for the simulation. If you're a big fan of Virtua Tennis, you may not appreciate the slower pace. The arcade modes are little more than a diversion, albeit a welcome one. This is a game for serious sports fans so give it some respect and play it under its own terms to get the most enjoyment out of it. Otherwise you might just want to haul Pong out of your Granddad's closest.

  • Conclusion: If you're really dying to play a new tennis game for the PSP then I'd definitely recommend Smash Court Tennis 3. The game modes are fun, the gameplay, though flawed, is solid, and there are many elements in between that separate it from competitors like Virtua Tennis. Unfortunately your time with the game will not last very long and the little flaws become frustrating far too quickly.

  • Conclusion: The biggest problem with Smash Court Tennis 3 is that it doesn't really do anything that the two Virtua Tennis games on the PSP don't already do better. The arcade-style minigames are fun and the pro-tour mode is decent, but there's little reason to give the game a look when there are other, better options available.
  • Pros: No shortage of things to do, Supports game sharing, Arcade-style minigames are kind of fun.
  • Cons: Progressing through the pro tour is dull, Training minigames are mostly lame.

Smash Court Tennis 3

Operation Sports
30 July 2007
  • Excerpt: It's been widely stated and often accepted that in the oft debated “arcade vs sim” war that sports gamers wage daily, the platform of choice often goes a long way in determining the label that a game receives. Ten years ago, sports gamers who wanted the most realistic sim experience, pretty much, had to go to the PC. Gamers who wanted the more arcade style were more apt to saddle up to the living room TV and play their console of choice.
