This game is super fun... period. I have fun playing it and i think that everyone should at least TRY it but.. the game has intense moments... very acurate hit detection... Career is so so.. could be more fleshed out but still over all solid game no lag online either

Fair

Career mode is horrible

Let me start off by saying that I play tennis every week and simply love the game and thought I would also love this game but I truly don't and let me explain.

First off I love the controls and using the analog stick to make shots. Takes a little to get used to after many years of video game tennis where you hold the button down and then let go to make a shot. If you are confused with the controls I recommend you do the training and you also have the option of the normal button style if you desire. I hope all future tennis games use this style of control as again it was awesome.

Where I had the issue was with the shallow career mode. You have the ability to create your character along with importing your face which all of this went smooth. You begin by having the ability to train, play exhibition matches, and even tournaments along with the 4 majors. Your career will span for 10 years where you need to up your rankings by winning and the goal is to become the best.

This all sounds great except for the fact you can't change the difficulty level as it increases as you go throughout your 10 years. I am good with this except for the fact I was able to win every single match and tournament I was in. Take for example as i worked through my first year my overall player skill was a 40 and would play against other CPU players in a major with a skill level of 90 or higher and I would stomp them into the ground by not even losing one point or match to them. Very unrealistic and if anything they should have been kicking my butt and then as I progress I would be able to battle them and eventually win. The other issue is the fact that once you go through at least 1 year then you have seen everything and not really a point to move on. Granted the difficulty gets harder but I didn't see a challenge till after year 6 and by then it was still easy and I simply quit.

Give it a chance if you want but I was expecting more out of it.
