"Frustrating and unlike Wii Sports Tennis"1.5 starson by thegrittybrit
Pros: It's neat to play against some all time greats and see what styles they used.
Cons: Delay before hitting it. Slow tempo of game. Bad commentary/announcing. Not really like tennis. Hard to control player. Hard to hit accurate shots.
Summary: I read these user reviews and was excited to play this game. Unfortunately, the game stinks: There are too many buttons to press. You have to use the nunchuk (well, you don't have to, but then your player won't really move in time to get any returning shots), plus you have to hold either A or B for a lob or drop shot (the slice, flat and topspin aren't really that different from each other), plus hit the ball correctly and in time. It's just too much.
After hitting the ball, your player just stands there instead of resetting back towards the center of the court, allowing your opponent to easily hit the ball away from you.
Balls that are hit low to the ground are called as bounces, even though the in-game replay clearly shows otherwise.
Your player could be standing right next to the ball coming toward him, swing in time, and still somehow miss the ball. It's frustrating.
For some reason, even though you are standing poised to hit a forehand and actually go through the motion, the player somehow hits a backhand, and a very weak one at that.
Plus, matches are only best of 3 games. So if you struggle at first, well, you're done for.
The positive user reviews are wrong. Maybe they aren't using the Wii Motion Plus like me, but if you're not going to use WiiMotion, just get Mario Tennis.
