Summary: Parents need to know that there is no controversial content in this "E"-rated tennis game. And don't worry about foul language -- John McEnroe isn't a playable character! This is a game that can be enjoyed by the entire family, regardless of skill level, age, or gender. Parents of young kids playing on the Xbox 360 will want to pay attention to the online aspect of multiplayer gaming; Common Sense Media does not recommend online play for anyone under age 12.
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.
