09/15/2013This game is far from being a tennis game. Maybe if you knew nothing about tennis you might enjoy this, but otherwise this is a gimmick. It tries to be wii tennis and that is not something I want to play when I want an actual tennis game experience. Stay as far away from this as possible unless you want to waste money.

05/11/2013the game says it is comparable with Playstation Move, but in my case, everytime I try to play, it asks to calibrate the controler and right after it says it is calibrated it freezes there,, not bottoms works, except the the exit one. tried several times.. really frustrating.. can't even start the game.. maybe the disc is defect.. I don't know, It almost seems like because I didn't want to accept the online play, it freezes on purpose.
I will find out about returning.. if Not able to , I am finished buying PS3 games for sure, will stick to the wii,, much easier to play.

02/22/2012Pros: Nice shot options, pretty easy to learn, realistic representation of tennis
Cons: Not enough pro players, playing vs. cpu is unrealistic, graphics are so-so, not too many options, few tournaments not a realistic ITA season
Well playing in rookie and ameteur mode is just lame. You dish out bagels no matter who you play. But if you go to pro, it is almost impossible to win. You break the opposing player (sometimes it seems way too easy) and then he/she breaks right back. Or if you are up a break or 2 the cpu decides it will suddenly make you make errors, and play amazing error free offense. Also, the 1st serv return business is unreal. You can blast a 125 mph serve and the cpu returns it for a winner; unreal. Also, aces only occur on meaningless plays or if you are down 0:40 or 15:40 to the cpu on the PRO level. I have not tried the most difficult level yet, I can imagine it is impossible to win a point.
Therefore, this game is somewhat fun, but the cpu play is horrible. I have not tried online play yet, I hope it is a bit better and more realistic. This game was made with good intentions, but it is incomplete (lacks players) and it seems it was made too rashly (slapped up to make quick money)......This is not uncommon for EA sports games.
Finally, it is pretty lame that baseline players all of a sudden serve and volley when they are down, and then become unbeatable. Also, why does Djokovic have a one handed backhand, and why does Rafa serve and volley. Ultimately, in this game serve and volley is the most effective way to win points which gets boring quickly. If you play baseline, yeah you can win, but if the opposing player approaches the net he will either pound the ball for a winner, or make you run around, try to lob him to win a point, or wait for him to make a calculated error. This aspect of the game is very lame......EA, at least give the players their right shots :)
BTW, to prove my point on calculated errors part........if you are the first to serve in the match, and your first serve is perfect...............every time it will be a fault. I mean I understand it is a first serve, but even a weak yet perfect serve goes out. WHY?
