Virtua Tennis 4 is easy to play for anyone!milktea | April 26, 2013 | See all milktea's reviews »
Extremely easy Tennis game to get into. Simple controls, and gameplay. There's several modes to try out. I've only played online, and World Tour. The World Tour was very enjoyable at first but gets tiring quickly in later stages. Although, it was fun unlocking goofy items for your player.
A great tennis game - bring a gamepad!Crazee | Feb. 20, 2013 | See all Crazee's reviews »
Virtua Tennis 4 is the best tennis game currently available for PC.
Unfortunately this isn't much of a claim since there are not many options. Fortunately there doesn't need to be other options because this game is great.
The game boasts a great roster of today's stars who are represented well in game.
The gameplay is slick and fun. It has full gamepad support, which is necessary - this can't be played without one, I bow down to anyone who can play this with kb/m.
Bottom Line: The best option on PC for tennis fans. A fun game, with a strong roster!

I first started playing Virtua Tennis on the Dreamcast. And it quickly became one of my favorite games because of its casual, arcade-style gameplay. I didn't want to play a sports sim, I wanted to unwind and have fun. Virtua Tennis gave me that exact experience. Since then several 'sequels' have been released and, while they do improve upon certain aspects, they mostly haven't become any better; in fact, if you ask me the brand has stagnated. More celebrity tennis players, wacky minigames/training missions, realistic graphics, create-a-player and things like that are small additions that definitely should've been added, but they should've added more to make it stand out again. The game feels like Virtua Tennis+ as it is; it's still fun, but brings nothing new to the table. The World Tour mode now even plays like a boardgame, where you use tickets to take a certain amount of steps. It actually gave me a Mario Party vibe. Note that that's not necessarily a bad thing, because the World Tour is really fun to play, but it could've used a little more work. It should've been deeper, maybe with an experience system even. I'll shut up now. If you're new to Virtua Tennis, start with this game. It's the most complete version to date and if you like tennis even a little bit I'm sure you'll have a good time.
Good game overall, but it has it's flaws.fable2 | Jan. 22, 2013 | See all fable2's reviews »
A reasonable game overall. The exhibition mode is good however the World Tour gets monotonous towards the end. The career should have included the opportunity to play with the tennis stars over a calender year (or more) and making them win the tournaments. The drop shot is probably the worst thing in the game, getting a point with the drop shot is very difficult as a drop shot is performed with a lob as opposed to slice. Overall an enjoyable game if you want to play the exhibition mode but not for too long.

Tennis games are not usually what i'm looking for, but i must admit that Virtua Tennis 4 is good game. Of course Tennis games are hard to make too addictive, because the nature of the sport. There could be more micro managing things and minigames, but Virtua Tennis 4 is pretty much just tennis game. Is fun to play sometimes but not for hours. Controller is must for this game.
