Summary: One of my favorie games on the PSP. The price on Amazon was good. This game is perhaps one of the best sports games out for the PSP. I don't even play tennis in real life, but this game is both fun and addicting.
NEVER give five stars but Best handheld tennis game

Summary: I played tennis in high school and college. I own every handheld system tennis game there is. This is the best. Here's why. Incredible ball control. For me, it's about making the shots. A drop when your opponent is on the baseline. hammering it deep to the right corner over and over and then whipping it to the far left. serve and volley. amazing angles. I can do it all on this psp game. Graphics, graphics, graphics. Must be seen. BY FAR the best on a handheld system.
Summary: This is a great game. I have to admit that at the beginning it is difficult and I thought it is boring. But when you find out on what moment to hit the ball it is like real Tennis. The world Tour is great. I am on ranking 8 now. Ok, it takes a while to get so far but it is my favourite game. Create your own player and have fun.
Summary: This game is great fun, and that is what counts. It feels like playing tennis. The presentation of the game is very well done. Some of it can be difficult. Especially some of the training mini-games are tough. But this doesn't seem to get in the way of overall gameplay too much. Also, for some reason I really seem to have a problem aiming with one of my characters, but not with the other, despite the fact that the problematic character seems to have better (or at least...
Summary: I own Lumines, Grand Theft Auto, Tiger Woods 06 and Winning Eleven 9. Some of the best games on the PSP but, let me tell you that the best game on my collection is Virtua Tennis. This game is amazing!. It fits better on the PSP than on other consoles. It's really fun and for just $19.99l, this is an undervalued game. Even if you are not a tennis fan, buy it. You won't be dissapointed.
Summary: Overall the game plays well with very nice graphics and sound. Being a tennis player, I appreciate the variety of shots you can make, though making a certain shot can be 'hit or miss' at times. There are several modes including quick game, exhibition, tournament or world tour. There are also a number of different surfaces including carpet, hard court, clay and grass and venues, including Tokyo, Melbourne, London and the USA.
Summary: I recently purchased this game and cannot put it down! I had and loved the original when it first came out on the Dreamcast, and this version is extrememly similar. The graphics, sound, and ever the playablity (which always concerns me with the PSP controller) all were intact with this port. What's great about the Virtua Tennis series is that you don't have to be a hardcore tennis fan or huge sports nut to get into it.
