Re: What's best tennis game for PS2???

Smash Court Tennis 2 is good, except for the fact that you can play through the career mode and get to number one without losing a match.

Usually I'll lose one or two near the start of my career when for example, the task will be 'fight back from 15-40 to win the game'
and my opponent is Davenport or Mauresmo. Basically you can lose an entire match because you were aced once. But in full matches, like in exhibition mode, it's possible not to drop a point on the hardest settings. So for me, the novelty wore off fairly quickly.

Daniela Hantuchova.

Casey Dellacqua, Jelena Jankovic, Anna-Lena Groenefeld,
Jelena Dokic, Mirjana Lucic, Sara Tomic, Sloane Stephens
Melanie Oudin, Kaia Kanepi, Alison Riske

Yep I just play it non-stop. I've made so many players in career mode (my Venus is unstoppable ) and I use them against the other players in exhibition mode all the time.

You get to play a whole set if you get to the final.

Re: What's best tennis game for PS2???

Smash Court Tennis 2 as everyone else said. It's a very deep game and has some nice add-ons like the Davis Cup (which is very challenging if your character is Mexican, since your teammates will suck), the missions, and the training.

I enjoyed it a lot. Amazing game.

The Virtua Tennis series is way too arcade. The player will dive if the ball is more than 1 step from him, which can turn any match into an endless divefest. Ugh.

I made a Jelena and Ana. I love playing exhibition matches against Justine or Kim cause they are fast and have high stamina. So the matches go forever

That wasn't released on the ps2. VT2 was though but that isn't a very good game - not much depth at all.

yeah, but its insanely easy on normal mode and you play first to 3 games most of the time. Mission mode, it's a little harder, but still wish the game was a lot harder.

Bought WTA Tour Tennis the other day, recommended on this forum, so hopefully should come in the mail next week

GO THE AUSSIES!
