Active sports game makes good use of MotionPlus controls.

  • Summary: Parents need to know that this sports game is a friendly experience with no objectionable content. The steep learning cure using the Wii MotionPlus controller could create some frustration in younger players, but it is otherwise, a solid, safe game.

Virtua Tennis 2009 Review

VideoGamer.com
23 January 2010
  • Excerpt: EA hit first with its MotionPlus enabled Grand Slam tennis, but SEGA hasn't been resting on its laurels. Hot on the heels of Grand Slam is Virtua Tennis 2009, released just in time for Wimbledon and also packing in full MotionPlus support for the early adopters of Nintendo's new tech. So, can SEGA's long-running series steal the strawberries and cream from under EA's nose? The key detail here is how the MotionPlus support is implemented.

  • Excerpt: Being English, to me tennis comprises of two weeks in June with lots of strawberries & cream, Pimm’s and rain. Like many I find myself itching to go out and play, but a mixture of being useless and lazy in equal measures mean I stay indoors. Of course technology is my friend and I can play all the tennis I want without leaving the comfort of my chair. That’s how it used to be; Nintendo’s little white box is becoming well known as the home of tennis.

  • Conclusion: In the end, we definitely recommend Virtua Tennis 2009. It's a solid step up from what's been on the Wii so far, a great if imperfect debut for MotionPlus, and an addictive enough experience that we kept playing well past the point where our arms got sore.

Virtua Tennis 2009 (Wii) Review

Vooks
13 July 2009
  • Excerpt: SEGA are returning to the court in Virtua Tennis 2009 and while the series continues in a new multi-platform installment, the Wii version’s use of Wii Motion Plus sets it above the rest. Few titles have surfaced so far that really utilize the new Wii Motion Plus and, while Virtua Tennis 2009 may not be the greatest tennis game around, it’s a great example of the capabilities for Nintendo’s new 1:1 motion sensing peripheral.

GameSpot
23 June 2009
  • Excerpt: To climb to the top of the tennis ranks in real life, you need to be a world-class athlete, put in countless hours perfecting your craft, and have an innate talent to hit a felt-covered ball extremely hard. In Virtua Tennis 2009, you just need stubborn determination. The only skill that will be put to the test in Sega's latest entry in its long-running tennis franchise is persistence.
  • Pros: Swing mechanics are easy to learn, Fun minigames
  • Cons: World Tour mode is way too easy, Gameplay lacks depth, Online play is mired in lag

  • Summary: Since our very first taste with Wii Sports , it would appear that tennis is a sport that's a perfect match for Nintendo's quirky console. Now with the release of Wii MotionPlus, the promise of a more realistic tennis experience should be fulfilled, right? And it's not like Virtua Tennis doesn't have the pedigree to meet our expectations. So, my question is, what the hell happened here?
  • Pros: Solid career mode, Online play, Looks nice
  • Cons: Controls are merely adequate, Poor Wii MotionPlus support
