Review: Ever wanted to feel what it is like to play in a tennis in front of a sell-out crowd at Wimbledon? Well, keep wondering because this game won’t let you feel anywhere close to that excitement. But what it does offer is a cartoon style, arcade feeling tennis game.
With loads of shots and power shots to make, singles or doubles matches, as well as both online and off-line play there is quite a bit to do in this game. It does have to be said that this game reminds me a lot of Mario Tennis, only much better looking. The power moves are pretty spectacular but you do have to earn the better ones which will take quite a while. I also found the controls pretty simple to use with the main buttons being shot types and the shoulder buttons used to activate the power moves. Nothing too complicated or difficult to learn, this is arcade style tennis at it’s best looking.
Verdict: VR Tennis Online is a fun arcade style tennis game that is all about big moves and colourful characters. While the online aspect is pretty quiet due to hardly anyone playing the game the single player is pretty extensive with tournament and exhibition matches of both single and doubles. While this game could have easily been made for home consoles it does have a sense of “being there”, but not necessary a sense of deep immersion. Fast, furious fun that shouldn’t be taken too seriously.
