Wow..........a True Failure

  • Summary: I tried this Tennis Masters Series 2003 and I found it ridiculously easy. To win a point, all I had to do was to run up to the net and slam the tennis ball away from the opponent. 15-0. The computer AI isn't exactly 2003 standard, as all players, so-called net-rushers, power hitters, so on. all do the same thing.

Very Easy and dull

  • Summary: I wanted a good tennis game, but sadly this is not it. The game is far too easy I played it on the highest level and the computer couldn't even win a set, so there is no challenge whatsoever. The surfaces don't seem to vary at all, and the shot variation is lacking. No matter what player you pick all you have to do is run into the net on every point and make the opponent run from side to side until the ball goes beyond his reach.

  • Summary: At the Master level, pretty much the only way to win is to go to the net every chance you get because the AI will blast winners from the baseline if there is even a small opening to hit one. For very realistic game play, set the AI to "Rookie". If you play realistically too (by not going to the net at every possible conceivable opportunity), you can get into some extended and very realistic rallies with the AI opponent.

Very good game.

  • Summary: Aesthetics: graphics, sounds, animation, etc...in short, very good. Prominent features: -Full selection of shots available...slice, topsin, flat, lob, etc. -Singles and doubles. -scalability: 5 set matches available, different AI levels, other optional scoring features. -"career" mode...simple but effective...nothing too complicated here since MST isn't some type of role playing game. -Player stats like unforced errors, winners, serve percentage, etc.

You CANNOT be serious!

  • Summary: Tennis Masters proclaims itself the 'Battleground of Champions'. I have to say I was very disappointed... the game play is simply dull. There's not enough scope in the variety of shots; angled shots only seem to stray slightly away from the centre of the court, making it easy for your opponent to return the ball; in doubles, if playing with an Xbox controlled partner against two Xbox opponents, your computer controlled partner hogs all the action - you hardly get a look...

Tennis Masters Series 2003

  • Summary: Coming from the Dreamcast school of Virtual Tennis I picked up Tennis Masters Series with hopes of the same quick game play. The same attention to detail and excitement of tournament competition that Sega had crammed into the VT title. I may have been spoiled. Could have hoped for too much. The Tennis Masters Series graphics are effective. Players and stadiums are realistic.

Does it Pong?

P Hegarty, amazon.co.uk
2 July 2003
  • Summary: This game is most entertaining in two (or more) player mode as the game has little longetivity in one player mode. The graphics are pretty good, but nothing special. On the positive side there are a large number of fictional players to choose from, and a fair amount of courts. Compared to other sport sims though it is not going to keep you entertained for long. This game is pretty tough to play even in amateur mode and lacks the play-ability of the classic Pong.
