Grand Slam Tennis 2

Square-Go
17 April 2012
  • 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 .

  • Excerpt: Perhaps no real-life sport better adapts to videogames than tennis. ( Pong , anyone?) So when the folks behind renowned sports sims Fight Night and NHL decided to take a crack at a thumbstick-driven pro-tennis game, we were excited. Unlike its cousins, however, Tennis ’ dual-stick input scheme actually makes the game less appealing. From your initial training sessions, Tennis ’ right thumbstick — your virtual racket — frustrates.
  • Pros: + Play-by-play commentary; playable pros are both classic (McEnroe, Evert, Becker) and current (Federer, Sharapova).
  • Cons: ? Where’s the Kinect support to let us yell at the umpires, McEnroe-style?

Grand Slam Tennis 2 (Xbox 360) Review

canadianonlinegamers.com
9 April 2012
  • Excerpt: When EA first launched the Grand Slam Tennis series it was a Wii exclusive as it took advantage of the system’s motion controls.  The sequel, aptly titled Grand Slam Tennis 2, lands on all consoles with a more realistic presentation and approach to the sport.  Having already reviewed the PS3 version, I took the Xbox 360 version for a spin, and while the game is technically sound it comes up a bit short of its potential due to a lack of variety.

  • Conclusion: EA Sports Grand Slam Tennis 2 gör trots allt ett mycket tappert försök att ta sig an etablerade titlar som Virtua Tennis och Top Spin, men i slutet av dagen går det inte ens jämföra det mot de sistnämnda titlarna då de inte ens spelar i samma liga. Men med det sagt tycker jag absolut att man ska ta sig en närmre titt på det här om man gillar tennis, för den underhållningen det ger så är det helt klart värt pengarna.
  • Pros: • Alla fyra Grand Slam-turneringarna • Skoj med alla de klassiska spelarna • flera olika kontrollmöjligheter
  • Cons: • Skum funktion på svårighetsnivån • Något tunt karriärsläge

Grand Slam Tennis 2

21 February 2012
  • Summary: Met Grand Slam Tennis wist Electronic Arts in 2009 een goede tennisgame af te leveren voor de Nintendo Wii. Voor PlayStation en Xbox zijn Virtua Tennis en Top Spin de absolute topgames op het gebied van tennis. Er is nauwelijks van concurrentie te spreken, zeker niet op het gebied van realistisch tennis. Toch besloot Electronic Arts om de Nintendo Wii achter zich te laten en Grand Slam Tennis 2 voor de PlayStation 3 en Xbox 360 te ontwikkelen.
  • Pros: Online, Classic Mode, Instapdrempel, Licenties
