In the Xbox 360 version, you can engage in online matches with up to eight friends in cyberspace (via Xbox Live; $49.99 a year), but this option is curiously absent from the PlayStation 3 version. The PS3 version, however, offers "true" high-definition graphics (1080p support), though the Xbox 360 looks about as good. Both games offer near photorealistic visuals with incredibly detailed players and courts, authentic "camera" angles, and ultra-fluid animation -- passersby might think it's a televised match.

The game contains 25 courts (grass, carpet, clay, or hard), in countries including the U.S., France, England, Australia, Argentina, Canada, and Japan. It features 20 tennis stars, including Roger Federer, Amelie Mauresmo, Andy Roddick, Tommy Haas, Venus Williams and Maria Sharapova. There's a lot to love about Virtua Tennis 3 -- Sega has served up a gorgeous and challenging tennis game with plenty of modes and customizability.
