Fun game looks like Vintage game

I played Virtua Tennis 4 and the graphics and gameplay is similar throughtout the series. But this game, looks like vintage one, but rather great and fun game. Only if you like tennis game. It is plain, simple fun. Regardless of crappy graphics, this game is good to play.

Never tried Multiplayer, but MP sounds good too. Great purchase if on deal, especially.

Basic, but easy to learn

This is not one of the major, in-depth Tennis simulators out there, and is more catered to quick matches and gamers who are mostly in it for the physical aspect of things.

Mouse and keyboard controls work with International Tennis Pro, but like one screenshot hints at, you're better off using a gamepad. You can adjust the controls, but the gamepad is simply more intuitive with this title. You don't need the latest and greatest one, either - my 8 year old one works just fine.

Graphics wise, the game looks quite old, yet the characters are surprisingly well-animated and enjoyable to watch. There's never been any blinking textures, screen tearing, or the like for me, and lag is completely nonexistent. Widescreen resolution support claims to be there, but the characters seem to be pretty stretched on my monitor - this doesn't take away from play though, and actually lends the game a slightly humorous edge.

The multiplayer is what makes this one a keeper, and there are still people playing, even though this is a pretty nice title. Definitely recommended, since this is just plain fun, and something more sports games need to try for.

Fun if you like tennis

If you don't like tennis, you won't like a tennis game, I think that goes without saying, but if you like tennis you won't be disappointed with this game.

You can edit your own personal tennis pro, play tournaments, play online or just do quick match. The graphics are modest, but the gameplay smooth. Therefore this game stays fun, especially when you play it with friends or family.
