Virtua Tennis 2009
Arcade Style No Finess Poor Grfx
I put in a good week and have reached #1 Pro position. Grfx r poor and mediocre at best. The gameplay is arcade style, so it's extremely easy to be good at the game as it requires no finess and basic simple timing unlike Top Spin 3. It's fine for people with low hand eye coordination, but if you like realistic play, this isn't it. Very repetitive, and players ranked below 10 all look like u. So u won't be seeing anyone unique till u become pro and hit top 20. They have several mini games, but they get old fast. I really would not buy this game again. I don't know how it got a 8+ rating. Even when u hit top 10, there is no special animation for winning the tournament, it's ALL THE SAME. All tournament winning animation is same from amateur to pro, omg, couldn't they have added some custom trophies and animations ?! The big major tournaments are missing too. Stay away from this game.
better than VT 3
I enjoyed VT3 and also being an avid tennis player myself, I just had to buy this game. Negatives are that the music is repetitive and somewhat annoying. The mini games are pretty lame but better than VT3. They made an amateur tour which makes it more realistic but ranking up is a pain. After winning a tournament you only go up 1-3 ranks, 3 at most so far. I played for about 2 hours and haven't even cracked the top 90 in amateur. the game controls are pretty easy but the drop shot is difficult to execute. The game will last you a very long time unlike the last one where you can achieve rank 1 in like 5 hours. Overall I give this game a 7.5 out of 10 and I will say that it is slightly better than VT3. Xbox live is also fun to play because there are multiple tourneys to enter.
brooklyn decker is hot if u dont no who she is look her up on google imagis
This game looks really fun! In my opinion, my favorite tennis games are the smash court, then Virtua Tennis, and then top spin. This game looks like it is going to be fun and interesting. The only thing that looks kind of weird is that the ball looks huge! And it's kind of weird.
Mediocre at best.
I have been a fan of the VT Series from the beginning so I was really anxious to get the "sequel" to VT3, however I was a little dissappointed. The Graphics didn't seem as polished as VT3 and they brought back the annoying original VT music (noise pollution). The ball is still way too big in the game which makes it feel cartoonish like the Wii tennis. The Drop shot is really hard to pull off. Going through the Ameature tour is a pain, because even if you win tournament after tournament your ranking goes up very slowly. The mini-games are back with some new additions which are equally lame. But even though the graphics are average and the music bad (thank goodness you can turn it off), the game has some good qualities to it. For the first time in the VT Series you have an ameature tour just like in real life, you play the junior and challenger series before you offically go pro, so that is a good add on. In addition you get to play wanna-be created charactes in the ameature tour instead of playing the pros the whole time through the Tour in VT3. The environment changes as you see the shadows creep across the court which is a new add on, plus the game gives you a better feel of the crowd being involved in your match. The Crowd is now 3D and before every match the camera pans over the stadium which gives you a feeling that you are really playing on a center court. Also SEGA fixed the annoying "dive" shot where in VT if you barely reach the ball you dive for it. Instead now you stretch for it and try to recover more normal. Also I feel that in VT2009 the players are quicker and the ball goes through the court a little slower than VT3 which gives you more time to set up for your shots. Also I feel that in a way the ball bounced way too much in VT3 and I feel that VT2009 you hit the ball a little more flat which is good. I also feel that the Lob shot has been improved. In VT3 you would be very lucky to score on a lob, but now the lob feels like it goes deeper into the court.There are new players in the game, but I'm still confused as to why they would have Davenport who is basically retired, and Juan Carlos Ferrero who is like outside of the top 100. I feel they could have added more updated characters like Juan Martion Del Porto or Gael monlifs, etc.I can tell this was a rushed game, but all in all its not a bad game. A little inferior to VT3 in some aspects, but some of the new features make up for it.Pros: Ameature Tour, Game play, fast pace, updated players, more options in the create a player, more tennis gear to buy and wear.Cons: Poor graphics, poor sound, getting your ranking to #1 in the ameature tour.Over all: 7/10
