Is It Any Good?

The best tennis series around only gets better in this latest iteration, which offers stunningly lifelike character models, fluid animations, and photo-realistic venues. With multiple sportscast-style viewing angles and dynamic replays, it may take casual viewers a moment to realize that they're watching a video game as opposed to a televised event.

And the good goes beyond just visual presentation. The deep and satisfying career mode offers both realistic tournaments and special events that result in tangible rewards that augment your tennis star's skills and appearance. It will keep fanatics coming back for weeks or months. Franchise rookies, meanwhile, should be able to get a handle on things pretty quickly thanks to intuitive controls and optional onscreen cues that provide feedback on shot timing and first bounce locations. If there's a better tennis game around, we haven't seen it.

Online interaction: This game supports online play with open voice communication, which means players could be subjected to foul language and inappropriate topics of conversation and could share personal information with others.

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.
