Racquet Sports is a pretty middling active sports game. All of the five sports require more or less the same swinging motion, making the game somewhat monotonous. What’s more, the PlayStation Move control scheme has been put to poor use. Even in advanced mode players have surprisingly limited control over their shots. The table tennis game in Sports Champions, another PlayStation Move game, puts all of these racquet sports to shame.

That said, if all you’re looking for is a simple game to get the family off the couch for a little casual fun, Racquet Sports might do the trick. The basic controls are simple enough even for very young children to grasp, and there’s little doubt it will help burn a few calories. Plus, with a complete graphics overhaul -- including much more detailed and realistic avatars and venues -- it certainly defeats its forebear in the visuals department. It’s not the best motion-control racquet game around, but there are worse.

Online interaction: Through PlayStation Network, you can engage in online multiplayer games, with the ability to use open voice chat. Common Sense Media does not recommend moderation-free online communication for pre-teens. We suggest using the parental controls built into the game console to disable online communication features.

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.
