Excerpt: Arcade style tennis action is there in force on the Playstation Portable. Virtua Tennis World Tour from Sega certainly has a step right up, and start winning approach to it. For those that expect a simulation then they will be disappointed. However those looking for a good, clean and fun tennis game that will not immediately humble them can pick up Virtua Tennis World Tour.
Excerpt: There have been a lot of sports games released for the PSP in its short lifetime, but tennis is one sport that has been conspicuously absent. Until now that is – Virtua Tennis fills the PSP tennis void and fills it quite nicely.
Conclusion: Virtua Tennis World Tour is clearly one of the best PSP titles we've experienced so far, and offers an ideal mix of long-term gaming where you can spend a couple of hours working your way up the rankings, alongside simply having a couple of minutes of action whilst on-the-go by improving your player stats or having a quick match against the tricky AI.
Excerpt: Ah, tennis. The rich man’s sport; played by grunting girls with ever decreasing skirt lengths, and men named “Pat” and “Andre”; watched by strawberry-and-cream eating posh knobs, forever keeping up with the Jones’ by extravagantly detailing what Benedict did at private school last week, and how Robert is getting on with those new heated leather seats in that Bentley he bought with his bonus last year.
Summary: Featuring the world’s best players (and Tim Henman), Virtua Tennis is sure to sell bucket-loads on the strength of its sporting stars alone. But aside from the opportunity to get your hands on Maria Sharapova without being slapped with a restraining order, World Tour is still one of the best sports sims money can buy.
Conclusion: The only reason not to get this game would be if you absolutely hate tennis, and by hate I mean absolutely can’t stand to watch it even for five seconds. For those who have no interest in the sport Virtua Tennis can still be considered a great game and for those that love the game of tennis then Virtua Tennis is a real must buy. When all’s said and done Virtua Tennis really is one game to love (yes, pun intended!!).
Summary: Virtua Tennis: World Tour is one of the greatest sports games of all times. There is absolutely no reason not to own this title, unless you absoltely hate the sport - but even so, it makes a great video game. Virtually an essential purchase.
