Summary: I just bought this game cuz I wanted a tennis game, and this one was a great deal at 4 bucks used. It's definitely a challenging game but not so hard that you would stop playing in short time. You continue improving both in stat skills through training and matches and you also improve your own ability to use different types of shots as you keep playing. It took me just over 2 seasons to get to number 1 position.
Summary: This game has very good graphics. The multiplayer is not as fun as the single player, though, which is very rare in video games. In career mode, you can choose your country, create your own name, and tweak every aspect of your person from his/her DNA, his/her pimples, his/her height, width, weight, eyes, mouth, hair, and everything else you could ever think of. You start out at rank 200, the lowest. You get 5 seasons to make to number 1.
Summary: If you enjoy tennis and video games, I highly recommend this game. I'm a tennis player and I love this game. The shot selection, directional control, realistic results on a stroke. More difficult shots are harder to pull off. The more time you give your player to set up the shot, the better the shot will be. As with real tennis, placement wins the point; by using good tactics and placement, you can beat higher ranked opponents.
Conclusion: Virtua Tennis is easier to slip straight into for a more casual play but if you give a little more time you'll see that, although it's harder to play, there's more technicality to the play, which should appeal to fans of tennis. Play as your favourite tennis player or become one yourself by creating one and playing through a career, working your way from nothing and working your way up through the world ranks. In terms of being a game I give this 5 out of 5.

Summary: On my LCD tv, I have not seen a 360 game to date that comes close graphically and its overall gameplay. The downside and what TS2 got slammed for was not having and new features and also the limited rosters. I agree with the rosters as a game flawl and also lack of different difficulty settings but as far as not having any new features... I think they got it right the first time.
