Excerpt: It’s fair to say that EA Sports Grand Slam Tennis has a lot to live up to. Although the tennis game market is not exactly saturated, it is, however, dominated by two other titles that consistently stand up to scrutiny. EA Sports do have a tendency to try and attempt sports that deviate from their staple franchise releases with the original Grand Slam Tennis being a paultry offering on the Wii that offered up a, shall we say, treat for the “family”.
Excerpt: If you are like me, you have been enjoying the plethora of coverage of Grand Slam Tennis 2 on the Family Friendly Gaming website. Every week there was something new to see or read about. Our editor in chief has been working overtime bringing coverage of this EA Sports title to our millions of readers. It is such an amazing blessing that my request to review Grand Slam Tennis 2 was approved.
Conclusion: Still, with a cast of legends past and present, a healthy smattering of modes and that trademark EA veneer, Grand Slam Tennis 2 is a solid enough release, if perhaps one more likely to win in a fifth set tiebreak than in straight sets.
Excerpt: In 2009, I was one of the first purchasers of the then new and innovative Grand Slam Tennis title from EA Sports. It was only being released on the Wii, and at that time, Wii Motion Plus was just being released. As a fan, player, and lover of the game of tennis, I was excited to jump into the experience with my new and improved Wii Remote. In short, the game was a lot of fun.
Conclusion: But if you play through 10 seasons you will surely get it. overall this game is very good especially the superb gameplay but the career lets it down just not as enjoyable or longlasting as other tennis games due to it being boring. thanks for reading, this is only my 2nd review so may be a bit shit......
Excerpt: Grand Slam Tennis was a Wii exclusive whereas its bigger brother serves up action on the technically superior PS3 and Xbox 360. In a departure from the Wii title’s cartoon visuals and simple controls, the only substantial carry over is commentary from Pat Cash. But will it be a cash-in or a grand slam? As indicated by the title, this is a tennis game and more of a simulation than say the arcade nature of Virtua Tennis .
More realistic tennis sequel straddles arcade and sim.

Summary: Parents need to know that EA Sports' Grand Slam Tennis 2 is a sports simulation based on professional tennis. It does allow players to compete online, where kids could be subjected to inappropriate language or conversations as both the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 versions of the game support unmoderated voice chat via headset microphone.
Excerpt: Imagine a football game with no headers, and no corners. Even if every other part of this mystical FIFA competitor played a supreme game of digital soccer, where the passing was perfect, the shooting spectacular and the tackling tremendous, you'd still look at it like the bumbling idiot it so clearly was; you just can't miss out on huge fundamentals of the sport you're trying to recreate. It would be ludicrous.
Excerpt: When I first took GST2 home, loaded the disc into my PS3, and found a home for the case in my library, I noticed that not only have I played and/or reviewed a few tennis games in the past year or so but more alarmingly that there are quite a few big name code shops actually making tennis games (and I'm not even including the min -game area like Wii Sports).
