AO International Tennis Review

I put a ton of time into AO International Tennis and I can say that I never once found myself fully invested. I so desperately wanted to play a new tennis game so I tried as hard as I could to find joy out of it. Sadly there’s just so little to invest in that you realize quickly that it’s a shallow game that would have needed more time in the development before the release.

Top Spin 3

2K Sports has done Top Spin 3 a great service with a lot of the improvements that the game has gotten. The only issue I really had was the control scheme which I think takes some of the excitement of the Top Spin experience away, but at the same time sets up a deeper experience for Top Spin in the future.

Hot Shots Tennis

In the end, Hot Shots Tennis may not be the best arcade tennis game ever made, but it is a title that carries a good amount of enjoyable content that I think both fans of the franchise and tennis can enjoy. The game isn’t perfect, but for anyone wanting to check out an arcade tennis title for the PS2 should definitely give this title a look.

Virtua Tennis World Tour

If you haven’t had a chance to check out the Virtua Tennis series, then now is a great chance to do that, and if you have, don’t expect all that new of an experience here. With all of this being said, World Tour is a great game that is definitely one of the brighter points to the PSP’s rough start.

Smash Court Tennis Pro Tournament 2

With Smashcourt Tennis Pro Tournament 2 you are given a solid tennis experience. It’s not the best one on the current generation consoles, but it is the best PS2 tennis game out there. The game offers the solid Pro Tour mode, plenty of multiplayer action, and good graphics. Any tennis enthusiast looking for a game for there PS2; I would highly recommend Smashcourt Tennis Pro Tournament 2.

Top Spin

Top Spin is by far the best tennis game of all time. The one thing that could use improvement for a hopeful sequel next year is a longer career mode. Besides that, Top Spin tennis is perfect. If you are in need of a tennis game or even a game to get use out of your Live subscription, Top Spin is a perfect game for just that.

Smash Court Tennis Pro Tournament

Smash Court Tennis Pro Tournament is a great tennis game that does the SCT name justice and the introduction of more realistic physics, play and graphics is very welcome. The game can keep you occupied for a very long time and once you know all the tricks you won’t hesitate to come back for more. However if you own a DC and Virtua Tennis 2 this is probably a pointless purchase, but VT2 is the only other tennis game that has a fighting chance against this beast.
