  1. Tennis Elbow Series Forever ! Nothing comes close and will comes close to this master piece of tennis software. Period. Tennis Elbow 2013 was already good, but Tennis Elbow 4 plays like a dream, and the game is still in development. Incredible. This game doesn't stand a chance against that either. I can already say that after seeing the gameplay in the trailer. Looks more like an AO2 copy.

    Fingers crossed there’s a way for people to create and share players and venues. That’s what made AO2 for me.

    Loved downloading all the oldtime players people created and tweaking their attributes. Fun watching or playing McEnroe vs Connors, or King vs Evert. Or even Nadal vs Borg. Once they went to Tennis World, they eliminated the ability to do this.
    Rule of thumb: If someone presents a trailer with just 2-3 seconds of gameplay, then the probability is extremely high that the gameplay is total crap. When I look at the forehand/backhand animations in the trailer, it's more reminiscent of amateur tennis for 50 year olds than professional tennis.
    It all looks more like AO2/WT2 tennis. Both games are terrible.
    how are there like 5 tennis games out now but only 1 hockey game??
    this looks really life like though.
    i still think full ace tennis is most realistic in terms of realistic amount of unforced errors.

    Tennis is easier to create/program. It is an updated version of pong. Other sports have multiple players running around, all with their own logic, etc.

    I cannot share this assessment. Tennis Elbow 4 with simulation control is a tough simulation. You also have to play extremely tactically in TE4. The game is almost a strategy game among tennis games. In Full Ace Tennis, on the other hand, every match plays the same. It practically doesn't matter who the opponent is. You just stand far behind the baseline and always slice back until your opponent makes a mistake. That's it.
    In TE4 there are many more factors that influence the matches. For example, it can happen that the AI opponent has a really good day and becomes much tougher than in the last meeting. Also, the AI changes its strategy several times in the match to find out what is most successful to defeat the human player. There is a lot more realism in TE4 than in all the other tennis games combined in my opinion.
