Decent GameAs a tennis fan, I was really excited for this game and got it right when it came out. I love playing as the older characters, like McEnroe and Bjorg, but also as current players, including my favorite: Jo-Wil Tsonga. Each character has a special trait synonymous with their playing skill. It is hard to get used to, and there is a big gap between medium and easy. I am in my 5th Slam cycle with my player and it is getting boring because there is not much else to do.

great, fun, and enjoyablei've been playing tennis since i was 9 and i love the game. graphics are decent (but sort of childish), the play is great, and there are no stupid minigames or anything other games have. aditionally, he controls are easy and its simple to play in a tournament and such. a good job.

Not great, but okay for tennis lovers.Okay graphics, but doens't let you design your own player. The remote doesn't seem to sense exact movements. But you get some exercise or it's a good warm up to another more serious workout. Not great, but okay.

Can't stop playing !!I've never wrote a review before but felt i had to do so this time. Being the owner of over 65 wii games ( alot of them being sports at least 5 tennis games alone) I LOVE THIS GAME im going to make this short and sweet its challenging ! ( yes i play real tennis too!) its fun ! its a great workout ! (if you mimic the actual tennis moves) a nice break from wii fit plus it is fun to play alone or with a friend ! I think the timing on your swings is right on ( compare w/ wii sports tennis) overall if you didnt like the game because it wasnt real enough hit the real court instead this is a game after all the only con i can mention is i could have done without the grunting :) especially Sharapova i guess thats part of the REAL FUN though !! 100% yes to anyone thinking about this game

EA hits a winner with Grand Slam TennisAs someone who has played tennis my whole life, even playing in a handful of professional qualifying tournaments, when I got the wii and the motion plus I knew this game was top on my list to get. Let me tell ya, when I got it I was not disapointed. When you start off the challenge this game offers is downright insane. For me, I was trying to swing like I would out on the court, which made me miss more in a few games than I think I ever have in my whole life while playing out there. It took quite some time to get used to, and like many before have said ya need to hit the practice courts to get the hand of it, not to mention have a motion plus to get the most out of the game. Once ya get the feel for Grand Slam Tennis, you will find yourself playing it for hours on end. The Grand Slam mode is great, seeing as you first have to create your own likeness to work through it. Having to build yourself up makes this mode a fun challenge that will keep you hooked. The roster is absolutly loaded! Getting to play against Pete Sampras, someone I played against in the junior ranks is great, more so this time around since I was able to beat him. I would of liked to have seen EA add the likes of Ivan Lendl, Jimmy Connors and Andre Agassi, but the pros they give ya are still top notch. The sound from the pros are great too. Hearing McEnroe yell "you can not be serious" after a close call brings back memories of the good old Johnny Mac. The venues are as close to real life as they can be given the cartoonish feel EA has given this game. If you are looking for a fun challenging tennis game, pick this bad boy up, you will not be disapointed!

great gameGrand slam tennis is a great game I would recommend it to anyone who likes sports. The graphics are okay. And the best part is when you make a person and play real tournaments against real people. You can do alot of different shots like the lob ,topspin ,flat and slice. There is also online play. There are three modes of play easy, medium and hard I play on easy. You can dress your player in hats, shirts, headbands, bandanas, sneakers, and shirts. I can't wait for the next one. Grand Slam tennis is my favorite game for the wii. I would definetly buy this game instead of virtua tennis. They should make this game for playstation and xbox too. The all play controls are awful because you can't move your player. The game is only good if you play using the advanced controls.

Grand Slam Tennis does nothing for meI have been looking forward to trying out this game and I have hunted down a Used copy so that I could return the game if I didn't like it. For me, this was the right choice. I bought this game today and will take it back tomorrow. I have seen good reviews and bad reviews, so the only way to really form an opinion is to try it out. (This is where Xbox Live shines, game demos give you an early idea of whether or not you will like the game, Nintendo really needs to work on offering this feature.) Alright, got the game, load it up. Nice green screen, very quiet, no real soundtrack. (Unlike Tiger 2010, which has this really pumping intro.) Then we move on to the Play Now to try out the game. Player's look cute, but they are very plain. The fans are flat and lifeless. The referee blandly calls the action. No real music other than the player making some sounds which only come through the small wiimote speaker. I am not impressed with the Presentation at all. From the bland courts to the lack of any real soundtrack, it is very hard to get excited about an Arcade Tennis Game with Cartoony Characters. If you are going to make an Arcade Tennis Game it needs to give you the perception that it is more fun than the real thing. Gameplay, okay, I used to play high school tennis 20 years ago. The gameplay on this game feels nothing like real tennis. From the too slow service toss, to the poor computer player movement the gameplay could definitely use some tweaking. Time after time the AI moves the player in the wrong position and you have to switch from what should be a forehand to hitting a backhand and vice versa. I could continue about what I don't like about this game, the real deal is that this game just does not excite me to play it at all. With all of this Summers excellent Wii titles, Punch Out, ExciteBots, Tiger Woods 2010, this game just simply cannot compare.

WORTH BUYING!Let me start off by saying, despite the criticisms, I had high hopes for this game... Well, they were help up! This game is AWESOME! I have not yet had the opportunity to use the WiiMotion with this game, and it's still amazing! I can only imagine the reaction time with having that! The venues for the games rock with having around 8 different courts with all surfaces! Grand Slam mode is unlike any other career mode i've played, since you HAVE to be yourself! You start from the bottom and work your way up, aquiring skills and more unique wardrobe options. This truely is the best tennis game out there! I am glad that EA took the cartoonish approach instead of a pathetic attempt at realism that will never be achieved on any console! My only gripe is that the player variety could be more vast, but they chose the best in the game... and you can always just be yourself! Absolutely AWESOME!!
