Excerpt: Diehard true blue Sega fanboys are waiting for the company to produce another video game system. While that does not seem to be on the horizon, there are many games that will appear on various systems. I decided to help this ministry fill in a gap in the form of Sega Superstars Tennis.
Conclusion: Overall, if it weren’t for the slightly lacklustre Virtua Tennis 3 gameplay in the actual tennis matches, Sega Superstars Tennis would be absolutely essential. As it stands, I’d still recommend the game to anyone because I love Sega and everything they do.
Conclusion: An example of this incredible animation can be
seen with Sonic, who lights up in Dragon Ball Z
fashion after activating his special ability.
The same goes for certain characters, and these
kind of creative visuals certainly add a lasting
appeal amongst casual gamers.
Excerpt: Game – Sega Superstars Tennis Genre – Sports - Tennis Platforms – PS2, PS3, Xbox 360, Wii, DS (Reviewed on Xbox 360) For quite a while now, Sega has been known as the go-to publisher for quality tennis games.
Excerpt: We wouldn’t normally begin by mentioning achievements, but as SEGA Superstars Tennis is host to some of the most ingenious titles ever devised it would be somewhat of an injustice for them to go unnoticed.
Conclusion: THE VERDICT: This is one of those games that everyone is going to get something different out of, and provided you're not expecting anything like a serious tennis sim then I think most gamers will be pleasantly surprised overall.
Summary: After Sonic's recent lackluster performance in Mario & Sonic at the Olympic Games, you'd be forgiven for having low expectations for Sega's next sports game to feature mascots: Sega Superstars Tennis.
Pros: Characters, courts, and music based on classic Sega games, Many minigames combine tennis with the gameplay of another game, More than 100 different challenges, Lots of online options
Cons: Actual tennis is pretty average, Some levels use their source material much better than others, Many of the characters are D-listers, Nobody is playing online
Conclusion: This is a good, fun game that any Sega fan will love - for a while. Once the challenges have been completed once, and you have played it for a few hours on multiplayer, I am just not sure that it has the staying power that is needed.
