Mail-order Christ "A Prince Among Maggots", amazon.co.uk
6 June 2005
Summary: I bought this tennis game when my search for Virtua Tennis and Smash Court proved fruitless, and after a horrendous (but thankfully brief) encounter with Perfect Ace - the Cliff Richard of tennis games. So I bought this, and to my great surprise (it only got 7/10 from the official magazine) it proved to be just as good as I would expect Smash Court and Virtua to be, yet has experienced only a fraction as much success. I can see why it got marked down a bit, though.
Summary: Considering this is an Xbox title the graphics are a let down. The overhead angle of the court leaves the players looking tiny and any detail in the players is hardly noticeable, let alone the crowds. The developers seem to have tried to make this more of an arcade style game and this is where the game really shines through. It's very easy to get into and so points go to playability rather than looks.
Summary: Slam tennis is very simular, if not exactly the same to virtual tennis which appeared on the dreamcast. However like the dreamcast game it is a great game. There is a wide range of characters bt not all of the top ones obviously, but you still have everyones beloved Tim Henman! The sreening and graphics like any x -box game is awesome and the amount of thought that has gone into it is good. They range from dance floor tennis courts to mansions and even on the beach!
