Is It Any Good?

What this game lacks in graphics, it makes up for in feel. By holding the Wii Remote (with the Wii MotionPlus attached) like a tennis racket, players can perform real life tennis strokes in front of the TV -- including forehands, backhands, topspins, slices, lobs and slams -- and the motions are mirrored in the game in real-time. When plugged into the Wii Remote, the Nunchuk controller moves the player around the court, but younger or more novice players can unplug it and have the game's A.I. handle player movement -- a very nice feature. Between its many game modes, multiple tennis players and locations, and intuitive motion control, Grand Slam Tennis is worth making a racket over.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
