Is the Wii worth it?

Hey guys,
I've heard a lot of great comments about Wii Tennis. Everyone tells me the game is addictive and fun, but is it as challenging as Topspin 2 on XBOX 360? Probably not, but I'd love to hear your input on Wii as I'm considering to buy one for myself.

Re: Is the Wii worth it?

It's a completely different experience to Top Spin.

Wii Tennis is more about fun and, if in company, making a bit of an idiot of yourself. It certainly isn't very indepth, there are barely any options, but it does come on a disc with four other sports too.

Re: Is the Wii worth it?

The whole game is only designed to get a feeling for the Remote and it is not a simulation or something like that.
I've played the game twice at a friend's house and must say I'm quite disappointed about it. The other games are a lot better, esp. bowling and baseball make a lot of fun IMO.

Re: Is the Wii worth it?

Wii Tennis is about fun w/ friends

Top Spin 2 is about being the best (video game) tennis player around.


Wii = WTT
Top Spin 2 = 4 Majors

Exactly - it was never meant to be a full tennis game with a tour, etc.

I personally find it quite fun, but at first it was difficult to hit anything except loopy topspin balls. I can hit the ball flatter and harder now though

Re: Is the Wii worth it?

I can't wait to get this game. Hopefully they'll make an official tennis game for it.

Does anyone know of any plans?

Women's tennis sucks.

Go Rafa.

Re: Is the Wii worth it?

Wii Sports comes with the console and is really only there to get you used to the controller. The tennis game is still a lot of fun but there aren't many options. When they release a real tennis game, it'll be amazing

Re: Is the Wii worth it?

Shouldn't this be in the non-tennis section?
