Excerpt: Having one of your games at the top of its respective genre ranks as one of the greatest accomplishments a developer can hope to achieve. First person shooters have Half Life 2, the Final Fantasy Series has had a tight grip on the RPG genre for many years now and Street Fighter has and always will be the first game that comes to mind when someone says ‘beat-em-up’. Sega also have a game of their own that falls into this elusive group in the form of Virtua Tennis.
Excerpt: Zoom back to 1999. The first game in the series came to arcades and was later ported to the Dreamcast. (Oh, the nostalgia…) This lead to a sequel that eventually landed on the PlayStation 2. Thanks to Sega, we now have this multiplatform game that has changed since its predecessors. This version of the game was developed by Sumo Digital. You can choose from a few well-known players or create your own from scratch.
Summary: While it's easy to criticize this game for not being very different from past entries, Virtua Tennis 3 proves to be just as much fun as it ever was. With fantastic online support, an engaging single player mode and some entertaining mini-games, Sega's next-gen tennis game will turn you into a tennis fan!
