Virtua Tennis 2009

Strategy Informer
6 October 2011
  • Conclusion: There’s a lot to love about Virtua Tennis 2009, although one could argue that it only offers a slightly incremental improvement over its predecessor. Gameplay-wise, this might indeed be the case, but when something isn’t broke, then why fix it? Virtua Tennis still offers the best game of tennis around, and with the wealth of options and features that have been crammed into this edition, 2009 is the most comprehensive VT yet. Game, set and match.

Virtua Tennis 2009 Review

VideoGamer.com
6 November 2009
  • Excerpt: In the ten years since Virtua Tennis was released in arcades, it's hardly changed. Sure, the graphics have improved a bit, and the player roster has kept up with the times, but for all intents and purposes it's exactly the same game now that it's always been. Virtua Tennis 2009 is yet another in the series that shows just how slowly SEGA's famed franchise is evolving. Playing the game sparks mixed emotions.

Expert Review

  • Summary: This series' repetitive nature is like watching a tennis ball go from side-to-side for eternity. The gameplay is good enough that you don't see a lot of funky animations, but the career mode's gulag of slow progress and repetitive minigames made me want to jump ship halfway to Dubai. It's a shame that despite playing well, the game is still almost no ­fun.

  • Conclusion: Concept: The long-running series returns, looking very similar to its last incarnation Graphics: The animations are great, but the created players look extraordinarily ugly and the stadiums aren't particularly detailed Sound: Unremarkable music and no commentary Playability: As always, Virtua Tennis performs on the court, but sports fans new demand much more than this in terms of depth and career modes Entertainment: I have a soft spot for Virtua Tennis' fast and fluid...

  • Conclusion: Sumo Digital's latest isn't the revolutionary step in the franchise we were hoping for, but its refined looks and gameplay mechanics have deemed it fit for any loungeroom Federer.

Virtua Tennis 2009 for Xbox 360 Review

thetechzone.com
19 July 2009
  • Excerpt: It’s been quite a while since I’ve spent an entire afternoon at the local arcade, but I do remember that Virtua Tennis was one of the more popular games at the time. Sure, I could empty out a roll of quarters with Street Fighter or Daytona USA, but Virtua Tennis offered the best tennis experience.
  • Pros: Great Virtua Tennis gameplay is back, Variety of mini-games to test your skills, Satisfying World Tour (career) mode, Support for Xbox Live online play
  • Cons: Forced/unforced errors are virtually non-existent, Very weak create-a-player tool, Disappointing graphics compared to other sports games (EA), Computer assistance can be frustrating

Virtua Tennis 2009 (Xbox 360)

Crispy Gamer
14 July 2009
  • Excerpt: There's always been something delightfully cheesy and overblown about Virtua Tennis. The shiny bodies and hollow-eyed faces on its athletes never make it seem like they're straining for victory. "Relax," the athletes seem to tell you. "It's videogame tennis." No need to tear a ligament or break a sweat. After winning a doubles tournament, my partner and I held up our trophy platters to the crowd in soft focus and extra-slow slow-motion, and then did a double high-five.

Virtua Tennis 2009

Operation Sports
3 July 2009
  • Excerpt: for the first time nine years ago, and I ended up falling in love with it. I would play it in various arcade rooms, spending all the change I had to serve or keep getting served. My addiction only grew when the first console version was released on the Dreamcast.
  • Pros: Easy to pick up gameplay., Good looking courts., Very arcade type of experience.
  • Cons: Gameplay isn't deep enough., Lack of commentators., Game is too easy.
