Game Review

Franchise followers will find Virtua Tennis 4 a difficult title to resist. The gameplay has proven solid for years, and everyone loves to see their favorite games in a fresh coat of paint.

Top Spin 4 Announced

2K Games announced today that Top Spin 4 will come out the Xbox 360, PS3, and Wii in 2011. It will introduce major changes from the previous game, but 2K made no mention of motion controls for the HD versions. Top Spin 4 will retain the franchise’s dedication towards creating a deep, realistic tennis experience as opposed to Sega’s arcade-oriented Virtua Tennis series. “Top Spin 4 is shaping up to be the most realistic and exhilarating tennis game in the Top Spin franchise,” said 2K president of product development Greg Thomas. 2K also promises one of the deepest player rosters yet which will include both contemporary and classic athletes – one of which will be a pre-order bonus at GameStop. The big changes coming to this entry are in the controls and the development behind the game. Read More

Move Compatible Virtua Tennis 4 Announced for PS3

Sega revealed Virtua Tennis 4 on the PS3 today at Gamesom in Cologne, Germany. The game will be compatible with PlayStation Move and feature 3D. Sega showed off a brief playtest of the game at Gamescom. According to IGN what Sega showed was rather simplistic and early – not unlike Wii Sports Tennis with automatically-controlled characters. This will actually be the second motion-controlled Virtua Tennis game after the Wii version of Virtua Tennis 2009 which was one of the first games to use the Wii Motion Plus (and the nunchuck with which to control the players). However Virtua Tennis 4 turns out, it seems that this game will start anew with its motion controls. Read More
