Overview: Tennis simulation game with Maria Sharapova and Roger Federer.

Gameplay: The load times are horrific, but once you’re playing, the movements are realistic and responsive. In the career mode, you can build your rank and skill by completing challenges with specific skill coaches and by winning tournaments.

Graphics: The load screens could use an update from the 80s to 2006. The player modeling is average-nothing special.

Sound: The women grunt with each swing, and the umpire voice-over sounds real.

Entertainment: This game is pretty entertaining if you like playing tennis games. Could become repetitive, but then again, that’s what it takes to become the number-one player in the world.-Eric Sentianin
