With WTA TOUR TENNIS (Climax Tennis in Japan) making its debut March 5th (that game has 20 almost all the top 20 beauties save Venus, Anna and Amelie) on the Playstation 2. It is a tennis simulator-so you can take your player all over the world in a season for the number one rank! Features real tournament venues including the grand slams! It will also be the first tennis game for the PS2. Reviews from the WTA game have produced very high marks.

Late March brings yet another tennis game to the Playstation 2. Smash Court Tennis featuring Anna, Martina, Lindsay, Monica, Pete, Andre, Patrick and Yevgeny. This one looks to be more like the first Virtua Tennis for Dreamcast...Very arcade like with no world tour mode.

A third tennis game will be released in April...but that one is Tennis 2k2 from dreamcast, just ported over to the Playstation 2!

The graphics look good, but the options look a bit weak. Here are some shots from the Smash Court Tennis game.

The one with Dokic on the cover is the WTA one being released in the States on March 5th. That one looks really good and the reviews are good as well.

The WTA TENNIS game has spent almost 2 years in development! Last year, they had a close final copy, and you may have seen some preliminary screen shots. Konami was not very happy with the game, so they completely overhauled the game, they got Jelena and other players for motion capturing, and enhanced the game. The game now looks substantially different, much better. I personally cannot wait for this game to come out!

The crucial thing for me is this...Julie HD appeared in the original game...does she still appear in the overhauled one???
