I've been playing tennis games for a long time. This Virtual Tennis is by far the best yet.....in single player mode. When I got online to play multiplayer, I ran into nothing but cheaters, glitchers, and quitters. I was disappointed that people figured out a glitch already. The ball would stop and wait for the other player to hit it back no matter how far it was from the other player. That SUCKED because I'm pretty good if the other person's not cheating. I don't cheat, so I don't play anymore. Now that I've beat the game, there's nothing else to do. I refuse to play this game online again.
Ok so basically if you are looking for a solid tennis game with good graphics and realistic tennis game play, then Top Spin 2 for the 360 is the best. Virtua Tennis 3 has very nice graphics, some of the best, but how good the graphics are, is how bad the realism and game play is. In this game you pretty much are waking mad and diving at the ball most of the time. You never really get any rally going whatsoever. The ball physics are also really bad. For example, you come up to the net to take a soft drop volley and you somehow hit the ball 100 mph so the other guy can just do a super dive and get it back. Plus the music is terrible for a tennis game, its like DDR. Its not completely terrible, but Top Spin 2 is where the real tennis is at. Virtua is for ages 3+ if you know what I mean.
