Not the Step Forward i was Looking For Review with images

AdvantagesGreat Graphics / fluid style of play

DisadvantagesUnoriginal / No Online Feature

"...and being produced by Sega, Virtua Tennis 3 was always going to sell well and get crave reviews, but has the game itself evolved enough to stay up there with the overhaul of new games already destined for the PS3? Plainly the answer lies whether or not you are a tennis fan or not as we shall see below. Its predecessors before it, Virtua Tennis 2 (PS2) and Virtua Tennis World Tour (PSP) have always been considered as dominating the 'tennis market' ..." Read review

A smash hit!!!! Review with images

AdvantagesAmazing graphics, pretty good fun!!

DisadvantagesGets much harder later on in the World Tour Mode, and where is the online mode?!

"...my PS3, and I saw Virtua Tennis in action on a demo DVD, and I was astounded. This looked exactly like the real thing. I do like a bit of tennis, (I watch Wimbledon every year, usually until the British players go out, which unfortunately is fairly early on in the tournament every year), so I decided I would add to my Playstation 3 game collection with Virtua Tennis 3! Gameplay The gameplay on VT3 is very solid. And until Pro Evolution Soccer ..." Read review

It's as good as tennis can be

AdvantagesAmazing graphics, brilliantly simple gameplay, incredibly realistic physics

DisadvantagesCan become tedious, no online mode.

"This would not normally have been my first choice for a game for my new PS3, but given the scarceness of PS3 games out there, I plumped for one of the few sporting titles. I love sports games solely because of the absence of linearity - you can play it over and over and never complete it, which, assuming the gameplay is enjoyable, is a good thing. I do tend to find tennis games a tad dull after a while, especially in one player mode. No matter ..." Read review

The most realistic tennis game around

AdvantagesGraphics, rane of difficulty settings, enjoyment

Disadvantagesno online mode small arcade features bring it down

"Virtua Tennis has always been an arcade style game instead of being realistic. Virtua Tennis 3 although contains great lifelike graphics is stil unfortunately cursed by the cheesy arcade factors such as the classic small explosion when the racket and ball collide and the line of yellow mist which follows the ball giving it a tail like structure. These features in the game (I believe) bring a tacky and childish part the the otherwise great game. Some ..." Read review

Smashing game Play

AdvantagesGreat Tennis play

DisadvantagesOnly three minigames unlocked at the beginning

"Virtua tennis 2009 is widely considered to be the best tennis game and, in my opinion, is fantastic. In this game you can either play an exhibition match with friends or play against random people online using network play. This, however, is only available if you have set up your internet connection up, though this only takes ten minutes. Obviously you are able to play against the ps3 as well. Unlike the previous game you are able to use a behind ..." Read review

good, but could have been so much better!

Advantagesfluid gameplay, nice graphics

Disadvantagesno online mode, world tour dull after while

"Virtua Tennis 3 is the latest of a long list of tennis games realised on various games consoles and it is a good game. The playstation 3 version which I own is very similar to the previous release on the playstation 2. A few more players from both the men's and women's tours have been added, the graphics enhanced such as court wear and tear and the world tour mode has seen some minor changes. Apart from these suttle changes its basically the same ..." Read review

Virtua Tennis 3

AdvantagesVery good graphis, fun gameplay, easy to get used to

Disadvantagespoor lobs, no online play

"For a game that you can either spend hours upon hours developing you player then this game is great. And also if you really aren’t too fussed about career modes then this game is also great as you can play as around 20 professionals and can also play some really good minigames against mates. The game is also very easy to lean, its as simple as pressing and holding the relevant button, using the analogue stick to set the direction and using the ..." Read review

PREVIEW OF VIRTUA TENNIS 3

AdvantagesGraphics, Same Gameplay, Mini Games

DisadvantagesNo Online Play

"Virtua Tennis is Sega Sport's most successful product. Sega Sports is the division in Sega which concentrates on primarily making Sports Titles. Many games in their series have failed to capture the success Virtua Tennis encaptured. Virtua Athlete, and Virtua Striker have all sold poorly yet Virtua Tennis has remained a fan favourite. Games 1 and 2 were originally released on the Dreamcast only for Virtua Tennis 2 to be ported over to the Playstation ..." Read review

Great game play.

AdvantagesGreat graphics and gameplay

Disadvantageslacks depth, no online play. repetative

"Having played top spin 2, im glad to say an even better tennis games has been launched on next-gen consoles. The graphics on this game are great and the game itself is very addictive. If you like sport games that concentrate more on game play than depth then this is top choice in my books. As you play through a career your player will develop thru training methods. The training methods are a bit ridiculous but bring a certain amount of fun to the ..." Read review

Virtua Tennis 3 Is Like A PS2 Game!

AdvantagesRealistic Umpires

DisadvantagesPoor Graphics

"Virtua Tennis is not what I was looking for when I first got it. It was one of the first releases for the PS3 and it didn't meet my expectations for a next gen console. I felt the game seemed very amateurish because the game almost seemed like a cartoon. I feel you are very limited in the options that you can play and feel that you cannot be enough players and can only participate in 4 different tournaments. I also feel that you cannot be enough ..."

Virtua Tennis 3

AdvantagesGreat realism of players and play styles, just great fun!

DisadvantagesGets slightly repetitive after 2 world tour modes, no online, lack of players.

"This is the sequel to virtua tennis 2 on the ps2 and the change is instantly noticeable.The play is much more flowing and the world tour mode has even more great mini-games. The players faces and playing styles are so much more accurate aswell, for example- Nadal is very life-like and has a great forehand. The world tour mode is incredibly addictive and from rankings around 300, you won't stop until you reach number 1. There are however some minor ..." Read review

AdvantagesEasy ot pick up and play
