Excerpt: You're likely to go through a few different emotions when playing EA's MotionPlus-enabled Grand Slam Tennis for Wii. Initially it's one of amazement. You're able to swing the Wii Remote and position your shots more or less where you want by the stroke alone.
Excerpt: It is widely acknowledged that Wii Tennis was the most played, most enjoyed game in the Wii Sports bundle that accompanied the system at launch. It was easy to play, but hard to master. It was obvious that developers would be quick to produce new tennis games to follow up the success of Wii Tennis.
Summary: Even with Wii MotionPlus, Grand Slam Tennis isn't as precise as it needs to be. Nintendo's new peripheral makes a difference for shot placement and the application of spin on said shot, but it doesn't mend this game's inability to correctly interpret your motions every time.
Conclusion: Concept: Kick Wii Sports off the court with a real tennis game featuring real tennis legends
Graphics: The presentation shines with instant replays, a clean cartoon look, and great camera angles
Sound: With on-court announcers and broadcasters, this is the best sounding tennis game to date...
Conclusion: Grand Slam Tennis is one of the most impressive sports games packages that I've seen in a while. EA deserves to be commended for getting on the ball with MotionPlus and offering up a game that provides a compelling reason to purchase the accessory.
All-ages tennis game makes good use of Wii Motion Plus.
