Tommy Haas....duh!:lol:

No Maria on the cover!:eek: Usually promoters use every chance they can get to put her picture on their product.

That can't be all the players on the game...

The players on the cover are the players in the game.

This game will only be out in Europe I'm assuming, since it says PAL at the top corner. :(

Serena!

Where are Venus and Serena? I know that Serena was in the first one...

That was the second one. ;)

The first Smash Court game had Hingis, Davenport, Seles, and Kournikova.

No. They buy the rights to feature the players. You have
to pay the players a bit of money from the profit.

LOL, no.

You'd need a special device or whatever to play PAL games in North America. Same thing for them trying to play a NTCS (North American) game.

I was going to post some comments after I played it a week ago.

I would recommend you not to buy it if you already have SCPT2. If you don't have SCPT2, then buy it instead of this RG edition.

I only played it like half an hour but found it extremely boring as I played SCPT2 a good 10 times or so (reaching no.1, max stats to level 50 and won all the tournments etc) and the gameply, layout are exactly the same. Just with another outfit for SCPT2.

In fact you don't get all four GS in the Tour mode. Just RG. Even less 'Tier 1' tournements too.

Haven't play the exhibition mode but I guess it's the same players as SCPT2.

Really don't waste your hard earn bucks on this edition. I rather get the WTATour old game.

However, as I said, I only played it for 1/2 hour so someone can correct me if I missed anything new.

If your PS2 is modified, you can get it to play any regions' games.

how are the graphics. and how do you modify your PS2 so its able to play all types of games??

Graphics is the same (as SCPT2,very good).

As for modding your PS2, in plain English, the brief processes are:

Get a modchip, then you will have to open up your PS2.
Locate the 'points' on the mainboard, mainly on the bios.
Then link the modchip to the board with wires - obviously some solderings are required and we are not talking about welding here. Very small areas on each point. Approx 1mm square on some points. If you are not careful, you can turn your PS2 as parts on eBay.

Unless you have all the equipment and steady hands, otherwise don't try it at home. Seek pro's advice.

I agree SCPT2 was fun for the first few times, but after about 4 times of play I defeated everything. It's a well made game though.

I also downloaded some older games on N64 emulator. I got Center Court Tennis, All Star Tennis 99, and Mario Tennis and I like them pretty much. I do hope they come out with a new SCPT because the graphics alone and the customization in tour mode is great. I just love creating all kinds of players.:bounce:

and i dunno y they left out players which used to be in SCPT2

TomTennis

Those pics look no different to SCTPT2.....

OMG i cant believe how simliar everything looks. The courts, clothes, rackets, selection screen. It is all set out like that!

TomTennis it's same game, just with different players. SCPT2 had Roddick, Blake, Safin, Anna, Serena, Kim and this game has Grosjean, J.Johansson, Nalbaldian, Elena, Nadia and Tati.

I am playing the WTATour Tennis (not the one with Dokic). The graphic and the movements/controls are not good in any means. But the game play is quite good and it lasts much much longer.

I must say that the control and shots/movements are excellent in SCPT2. Winners are very satifying unlike, say WTA TT.

Hey, you might know. I got my player to 'Power Backhand' but didn't know how and I can't get it to that again. Any idea?

Apr 17th, 2005, 05:54 PM
I would buy this just because it has Tati in it. Well I can't play it because of PAL and its basically SCPT 2 without the other grandslams and some new players.
They should just make SCPT 3.

a good decent tennis game hasn't been released in a while now so I'm being forced to re-play SCT2 over and over again :( Don't think I'll be purchasing this new game though, looks identical to SCT2 with less slams and just the extra bonus of Tati.:(

i tried the game, elena's serve is a bit lower than the average serve speed of the other girls, and it is hard to time to make a nice serve, but her forehand is terribly great!

for davenport, it is marked"heavy strokes" than"rapide" in english version

I live in Australia but we can play PAL games here. I am just playing SCTPT2 and enjoying it so would like another version with different players.

It does look a lot like Smash Court Tennis 2 - the character selection screen especially looks like a copy and paste effort :tape:

And unless those are just badly distorted press photos, the graphics look pretty disappointing - nowhere near as good as Virtua Tennis 2 (the master of tennis games - pity it has such limited tour play and characters).

they should make a game topspin.2.. except with the different surfaces actually affecting the game! and waaay more WTA/ATP players...
and for ur "career", u could manage ur players eg, endorsements, bitch about other players lol jksjks... but that would be pretty cool... oh and if u could "argue" "throw racquet" "punch opponent" lol

You know, I've been thinking about that as well while playing SCTPT2. It would be really nice if you could interact with the audience or other players. (For example: if you think your opponent made a beautiful point, indicate it by clapping your hand against your racket or something like that)
Or give a press conference after having won or lost a match.
Also defining a players personality could give great options.

Hey you know, maybe we should send these ideas to whoever is bringing out the next SCTPT :D They're dying for feedback on their games anyway. :)

Your right..i think we should..

We should start a thread and have people write (ReaLISTIC!!!) ways of making the game better.....!!! Then we can e-mail the creators with the link, or just put it all in an e-mail! They would appreciate it becuase its from the fans!

Lets do it!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! :bounce:
