Directly translated from the popular arcade stand-up, Virtua Tennis offers a light-year jump from the Pong-style tennis of yesteryear. Sporting rich 3-D graphics, crisp animation, and realistic sound effects, you'll swear you're courtside at a grand slam. But, thanks to the game's simple controls, you won't have to spend years at a tennis camp just learning a backhand. The game features hard-top, grass, and clay surfaces, all with distinct ball-bounce and sound responses. Choose one of eight internationally ranked tennis pros and play against advanced computer opponents, or plug an extra controller in and play a friend head to head. Just as in real championships, ball boys, chair umps, and even spectators react to your game.

The best tennis game in recent memory powers ahead with a Japanese incarnation after doing famously in the United States under the moniker of Virtua Tennis. All of the known pros are here and famous courts from the around the world offer their clay and grass fields for playing. The control and execution are superb. It's second nature to sit down, grab a pad and get into the rhythm of the game.
