"Nice game. Really fun party game. Good for tennis fans"
23 July 2011
Pros: Nice graphics. Easy to learn and have success with. Really difficult to win at the hardest level, but you can start with easy and medium. Has replay of nice shots. Doubles is really nice too. Love that you can make several of your own players and lots
Cons: A little cartoony. The commentary is repetitive. Wii motion plus does not work well with this game. Makes your shots go everywhere except where you want them. I don't like that they retire your player after so many matches that will limit the number of
Pros: The new Wii Motion Plus adds a degree of responsiveness to movement that I've not found in previous games. With a little practice court time learning basic shots and movements, I was up and playing (using the nunchuck right away) in almost no time.
Cons: Would be nice if you could save a game mid-way as you can with other games. Character customizations are somewhat limited. Serve speed is slow, at least initially, though you can earn skills by winning some challenge matches.
Summary: This game is pretty descent. The player variety is great, but where is Jimmy Conners? If you play this game with the wii motion plus, I must warn you, it is very sensitive. With the wii motion plus, you have to make a forehand/backhand motion, or it will make a shot motion that you do not mean to do and you either hit the ball out or completely miss it. To hit a shot without the wii motion plus, it is just a flick of the wrist, just like wii sports tennis.
Summary: Well let me start this review by saying that this is a proper tennis game! Its not like wii sports, where the characters are poorly made and its just annoying.. As soon as you play this, it is natural (for most people) to naturally think that this game is a walk in a park. Well trust me it is not because it has taken me 4 years (game mode) to actually win any tournament and I haven't completed a grand slam yet.
Summary: It's a brilliant Wii game - one that I would strongly recommend to anybody of any age. But it is disappointing that the commentators and umpires are American, so it is quite difficult to understand what they're saying, it is easy to know what score you are on as it is set-up just like Wimbledon or any other tennis match on the TV. The graphics are fantastic for a Wii game! It makes it very real, and it feels like you're playing like a professional!
Summary: I haven't read all the reviews, but I think the one that says the game is awesome are right. You indeed need to learn how to play the game, but once you can play it it becomes more and more fun. In the beginning I had a hard time playing on "Easy", but I could forget about playing at skills mode "Medium", it was just not done. Right now "Medium" is too easy for me so I switched to "Hard" and got beaten in two sets by a (computer) player with only two stars.
Summary: Wii Sports tennis is a mere warm up compared to Grand Slam Tennis. It's a good game even without the enhanced controller. There's enough options and variations to keep you busy for some time. My only real complaints is that there should be an equal number of male and female tennis stars, and that they could have added more "commentary" without having Pat Cash repeat everything over and over again.
