EA Sports Grand Slam Tennis Review

VideoGamer.com
6 October 2009
  • 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. Swing up to down or down to up and you'll hit the ball with slice or top spin, just like you would in real life.

  • 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 Playability: One minute you're painting the corners, the next you're throwing the Wii remote in frustration Entertainment: A definite upgrade over other Wii tennis games, but it won't...

  • 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. If you're a tennis fan or are just excited about Wii MotionPlus, then you owe it to yourself to check out Grand Slam 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. One minute, the game has a firm grasp on my play style. I painted lines and made Nadal look like a fool. The next minute, my character looked like he lost his vision mid-match.

All-ages tennis game makes good use of Wii Motion Plus.

Common Sense Media
9 September 2009
  • Summary: Parents need to know that this game is just fine for players of all ages who are old enough to play tennis. There is no controversial content in this game other than exposure to branded products displayed as advertisements in the playing forums. And though it stars John McEnroe, you need not worry about profanity. You can purchase the game for $50, but the bundle with the Wii MotionPlus it is only $60 -- a steal.

  • 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. After a few somewhat disappointing tennis outings over the past couple of years, EA seeks to offer up the definitive tennis offering on the Wii.

  • Excerpt: First Impressions My reaction is The console developing giants, Microsoft, Sony and Nintendo, are now trying to make the controller more of an item in a game rather then a console accessory. They want to make the controller more interactive, by using motion sensors and capturing the action of gamer on screen. The Nintendo Wii was a unique idea when it was unveiled in E3 2005.

  • Excerpt: Tired of running around a sweltering hot tennis court in the summer? EA Sports has just the solution for you. Play at home instead with Grand Slam Tennis for the Wii. The motion controls are so real that you will forget that you aren't even playing real tennis. At least that is what I imagine the marketers would like you to think. Back in reality it's a different story – at least if you don't own a Wii Motion Plus.

  • Conclusion: Is this the best tennis game available for the Wii? It depends what kind of tennis you're looking to play, as anyone just looking for a deeper version of Wii Tennis will want to look to crowd, with an enjoyable mix of career mode play, party modes and online competition. But with the controls implementation difficult to get a handle on and the graphics looking unfinished, the Wii tennis throne remains slightly out of reach, but it's a solid debut for the franchise.
