Woohoo! It sounds better than no.1. Well at least I hope it is.

How is SCT1?

I thought it was an ok game. It just got old really quick.

ST1 kind of sucked, especially the tour mode which was very limited IMO. I have alot of bad tennis games, and this one is not worser than Hardhitter tennis.

I kind of liked Hard Hitter. Although I always laugh aloud when the announcer says, "She really loves playing tennis"

Plus, HH was only like $8. Can't really complain about that!

Keith, the controls on HH tennis really gets on my nerves. It is just too hard to control your shots. And the serve is the most hardest.

I could never beat anyone in the 6 level or above. The tour is long, but you cannot use the pad to play. It's frustrating.:)
