Hope it's better than the last two. No more super-human running please. :lol: Top Spin has a much more realistic gameplay but then graphics-wise, VT wins hands down. Hope the gameplay is better. Saw a demo and it looks good.

^ Well i wont make final judgement until i see gameplay videos BUT the team that made this version is the same team that made the "original" Virtua tennis games(ie the better and more realistic) and not the team that made the last two versions. That itself has me very anxious!

Noooo,all that means is just 7 new players made the game. That doesnt mean more returning players aren't in it. Last version they announced 7 new players along with the entire VT3 roster returning(minus Hingis who was not only retired but also on a drug ban). Last version had Maria,Venus and Ana along with Chakvetdaze,Kuznetsova,Hantuchova,Mauresmo,Vaidiso va and Davenport(though the latter 3 are retired now)

Why is Laura Robson in Virtua Tennis 4?
Also, I hope that certain things get improved:
Serve- There should be a serve percentage. Also, serves shouldn't always have the same max.
Strokes- There should be unforced errors and harder shots to make more winners.

All of the Virtua tennis games are arcadey, they always have been and always will be, most likely.

Virtua tennis 2009 was a step in the wrong direction though, it was worse than the previous 3 games. :o

Virtua Tennis 2 on playstation 2 was my favorite, it was acardey but realistic as well (if that makes sense). Also smash court tennis 2 on ps2 wasn't bad either.

I think tennis games are lagging way behind other sports games that are evolving every year. The best tennis game ever is definitely Top Spin, for me. Top Spin 2 and 3 are embarrassing.

I've never really played Smash Court Tennis, seemed okay but nothing great, there have been far worse games.

Jan 23rd, 2011, 03:47 AM
ROBSON??? WHAT???
I really don't know what kind of alcohol the developers are having, but let me give you a hint of how Virtua Tennis 5 is gonna look like:

VIRTUA TENNIS 5
On the women's side:
Serena Williams! (comes with foot plaster)
Anastasia Rodionova (complete with uncensored road-rage action!)
Simona Halep (post-boobjob)
Martina Navratilova (heck, even she can go for a title on THIS WTA!)
Marion Bartoli (protagonist of the "Cake-eating contest" mini-game!)
Brie Whitehead (with her very own theme song, "Let's Get Bageled")
and a bunch of other unimportant players nobody really cares about anymore!!!

Virtua Tennis......giving random players a shot at a video game experience. :lol:

Never buying another VT game again. VT2 was the epitome of arcade-style tennis video games, VT3 was simply a HD version if VT2, but Vt2009 was just total fail and they keep on shoveling out the same damn game without making any improvements. VT4 looks to be much of the same!:o

it actually doesn't look so bad. The characters look so much better now, especially with the muscle definition. Seems like they got the racquets as well. I just wish the gameplay was more realistic.

Iam playing the series since the first one and i love Virtua Tennis..

VT3 is still one of my favourite Games in Multiplayer,never played a game often like this before.

VT 09 was not as good and i hope they can make it good again - i cant wait to serve with Gonzo :-)

The Diving,okay,not the best thing,but its all about the Fun!
If you want more realism buy topspin 4 - and a real tennisfan is buying both of them :)

I think it stupid for them to put them leagend in the game because really nobody plays with the Legends as much as current players and for them to only have 3 legends, they could have put
Zvonareva ,Jankovic,Clijsters, Serena, Ivanovic,Azarenka, and Agnieszka I know i add four more females but that better than add three legends, I really would brought the game. & for the man Why the hell they add Andreas Seppi that could have been Berdych, they could add Soderling, Tsonga, Isner & Raonic as well.

DefyingGravity
Apr 23rd, 2011, 01:08 AM
I feel like the shots are loopy only because the created characters don't have any power yet, since it clearly is like some kind of challenger looking event. Let's wait for some footage of pros in the game to judge how loopy every shot is.

I can't believe I spent £40 on this shit!!

One hot steaming pile of turd this game is. Just awful!

The characters are crap, the game play is crap. Just everything about it is horrible. I want my money back.

The only decent female player in this game is Kuznetsova. Venus is appauling to play as. Wozniacki has no power. Sharapova has power but does nothing with it. Chakvetadze is crap. I haven't even tried Meat head (Ivanovic) and Robson.

I can't believe I wasted £40 :sobbing: I knew I should have waited until it became £5 second hand.

Going straight back to Top Spin 4. I can't play this game anymore!

I bought the game yesterday and I'm liking it so far. It's still arcade-ish, but it's much slower now. You have to time and position your player more accurately to generate pace. The graphics and animations are spot on. They even got Karolina's "wristpump" right. Of course I had to choose Karolina for my first match in honor of her domination. And I'm happy to share that she managed to slip two times on grass after being wrong footed by Sexnetsova. :spit:
