Satisfactory

Great Graphics / fluid style of play

Unoriginal / No Online Feature

Being used as one of the launch titles for the PS3 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...

“A smash hit!!!!”

published 14/04/2007

Amazing graphics, pretty good fun!!

Gets much harder later on in the World Tour Mode, ...

I was never a fan of tennis games. I'd played on a couple of demos, and thought they were fairly good, but I'd never been hooked into splashing the cash for the full game. But then this changed. I got my PS3, and I saw Virtua Tennis in action on a demo DVD, and I was astounded. This looked...

Graphics, rane of difficulty settings, enjoyment

no 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...

“Smashing game Play”

published 22/08/2009

Great Tennis play

Only 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...

Can 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...

fluid gameplay, nice graphics

no 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...

poor 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...

Graphics, Same Gameplay, Mini Games

No 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...

Great graphics and gameplay

lacks 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...

Realistic Umpires

Poor 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...

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...

No Online, Lacks Challenge

This is a great tennis game, visuals are outstanding, controls are easy but can seen a bit unresponsive at times, the only thing that lets this game down is thats it's easy for the average gamer, there is no difficulty setting on the main mode so there is no replay value there. the mini games are...
