Summary: I've yet to come across a tennis video game that has great or even good, realistic game play and Virtua Tennis 3 is no different. Simply put, there are virtually no unforced errors, way too easy to lay out and dive for a shot and get it back no problem (multiple times per point) and no matter how good of a server you're playing with and how well you hit the serves and place, it's impossible to dominate with your serve.
Summary: This game is a very good tenis game.It has fun mini games good gameplay and players. One of my problems is the challenge of the game. On normal it WAY TO EASY but when you change it to hard it gets extremely hard it's very hard to win. In the world tour mode for some reason it doesn't matter. Also sometimes even if you press a shot button when your right next to the ball it won't work and freezezup and can be frustrating.
Summary: I've really had a lot of fun with this game, am a big fan of the first release and can see an amazing improvement overall in it. Still a couple of flaws like in a scenario a building from the background breaks, and visual details like that, more important one is the gameplay, at first you see really lame shots and it tends to be just too unreal but as your World Tour character improves you start getting a better show, players dive less and its just more believable.
Summary: fun way to kill some time...plus you can customize ur own character and rackets and sneakers...etc. Either way theres this one guy I can't beat! WHY?! Just glad I got my money's worth in this game rather than wasting more at the arcade.
Summary: This is the first game of the Virtua Tennis series that I have played, but I had heard some good reviews of the game, so I decided to pick it up. It is definitely more of an arcade game that you can pick up and play fairly easily than a more complicated similuation game, which makes it a great game for a portable system like the PSP.
Summary: I think the choice of players to choose from is quite good, as well as the choice of locations. The difference in players is also good, such as the way Andy Roddick serves. Although, when you play the tournament mode, each round is in a different location and only one set per match. Plus, why can't the first round be as hard as the final? You can choose a 5 set match (with tie breaks) in the exhibition mode though, and thats really good.
Summary: Virtua Tennis has been a great series, the best for tennis games by far, so I was excited by the release of Virtua Tennis 3 for PSP. The main thing that strikes you is the graphics- they are superb. I played the PS3 version just before playing this and there isn't much difference. I know it sounds stupid saying that, but really when making the shots in game, the courts and player movements are outstanding. Virtua Tennis has a good range of male and female players.
Good fun, Good Tennis game, But sometimes technical problems...

Summary: My first tennis game on PSP, the gameplay is good, the game does not include current (July 2007) female World No.1 Justine Henin! but feature most famous tennis players, including Tim Henman (overrated in the game!!!) The problem of the game is exhibition mode!It always freeze just at the start of the game when I just press one button... But overall is good, if it does not freeze, then there would be an extra star for the comment!
Summary: I have Virtua Tennis World Tour on the PSP which I thought was really good. With Virtua Tennis 3 the game has got even better. It still has incredilble gameplay and excellent graphics, but the game has been enhanced with new challenging training games and mini games. Its also nice to see your ranking go up after each tournament round (assuming you win that is!). The only problem I find is the rather irritating background music (or more accurately muzak).
