Grand Slam Tennis 2 Initial Reviewer Impressions


Itís challenging to evaluate Grand Slam Tennis 2ís gameplay, because itís a completely different experience depending on what difficulty level you select. On the highest levels, the CPU almost never misses a shot. On the lowest levels, the CPU players trip all over themselves trying to get to the ball and move like slugs. But in between those extremes, thereís a decent game of tennis.

Classic EA effort: gimmicks, marketing hype, and the sport is exploited to sell a game.

its funny to me how this game was loved on the wii 2 years ago but now that its in hd plays the exact same awesome game of tennis even better in some places but its getting no love and being called gimmicky? this is exactly why i trusted my own opinion on the demo and the fun i had on the wii version and bought this game and love it! as do most everyone who has purchased and ignored the reviews.anyone i have talked to or seen thats bought it are very happy with their purchase...online is a blast! far better experience online then top spin 4 where half the people that are on cant connect to eachother do to 2ks classic server errors lol... both play a great game of tennis but both have their faults as do every games.but we have a good variety of tennis games here and both have a spot on myshelf.im really enjoying grand slam 2 at the moment though money well spent for me...=)if anyones playing on ps3 im killermiller3131 hit me up!

i hhave to agree with killer, the game has flaws but very fun to play. now that ea is in the game (no pun intended) it will force both companies to step up their tennis game even higher

At least Grand Slam Tennis 2 has a Multiplayer Tournament mode to play offline. The lack of such a mode was a gamebreaker on the otherwise superior Top Spin 4.

its not the same as the wii version.
at least in the wii version there were unforced errors.
you could also angle shots better toward the lines in the wii version.

Why isn't Jimmy Connors in any of these games?

i was using my move controller last night and unforced errors and better line angles are ALL there and its consistent.perhaps we will get with a patch the ability to hit more angles a little better with "TRC"as well and also then we will see the unforced errors more so as im seeing them with the move controller.

So what's the best tennis game out ? I'm pretty unfamiliar with the new tennis games. Last one I was into was on the Sega Genesis.

I just played my first 2 games with the move and thought it was really fun
Plenty of unforced errors and balls going out
