Summary: Not as good as I thought it was going to be but OK. I just wish they would make more golf games with different courses. The reaction time to hitting the ball doesn't seem to be in real time, You have to start making the stroke a bit before the ball would be on you. Some times the chopped stroke reacts as if it was a top spin too.
Summary: i've played this game for some time now and read lots of reviews.Whilst i agree it's better than anything else available and can be fun, especially when playing doubles,there are features which are not just hard like our reviewer mr.nintendo insists but are just pretty impossible to master.Volley players depicted like Sampras Cash,edberg Etc.never score points from the baseline.They constantly loom over the net in their service games and you'll be pretty hard pushed to...
Summary: I play tennis for real (to a good level,having won a singles tournament in 2006) I have this game and also the Virtua tennis. If you are looking for a tennis simulator then both games disappoint. Neither is like playing real tennis and both suffer from the shots on the screen not matching what you are playing. There is also a time lag, especially with serving.
Summary: One of the things that sold this game to me was the fact that it was compatible with the MotionPlus. I expected big things from it. Unfortunately it proved disappointing. I really wanted to like this game and my first impressions were generally positive. However, as I played more the controls got ever more frustrating. With the MotionPlus on, the racket takes on a life of its own.
Summary: EA Grand Slam made the right move with cartoony graphics since the wii is a poor machine. However the gameplay itself can be very dissapointing. Power or aim is not what you need to hit shots sometimes i just find myself flicking my wrist to do a powerful cross court shot. The computers tactics are all to frustrating alot of players use serve and volley which is very frustrating even if you press A to lob them they have no problem moving back a bit and smashing it back...
Conclusion: I like this game, it looks great and for the most part plays really well, however, playing backhand shots without the nunchucka is a nightmare. It perceives your arm movement into the backhand position as a shot which makes you miss the ball by a mile. Really REALLY frustrating.
Conclusion: This is close to being a perfect tennis game. Like anything, it takes practice, but after several hours play (with nunchuck) you can place the ball, lob, dropshot and aim your serves. Beating the computer in grand slam mode is easy when you serve and volley and you rarely lose a game.
Conclusion: When it is working right it is one of the best games I have played. But regularly the handset doesn't respond or the player just swings when you don't. Also when not using the Nunchuck the player positions himself very awkwardly leaving you no time to readjust your shot. I am enjoying the game but I find myself screaming at the TV in frustration at times.
Summary: I bought this game when it came out, which was around Wimbledon time (I like playing more than watching). I thought the game was great and was looking forward to my Motion Plus arriving to make it more realistic. In the real world, I wouldn't expect to be beating Federer and Nadal, but the motion plus was like someone else was playing. As other reviewers have mentioned, you swing a backhand, and it tries a forehand. Sometimes it doesn't even move.
