I like Wii Sports Tennis so tell me why i should / shouldn't buy this game.
dude, buy ssbb...7,000 times better.
I never really played the other Smash Bros titles. and i hear online is laggy right now. I'm really just waiting for Mario Kart and thought i would give superstar tennis a shot till MK came out...
What games do you have, perhaps we can suggest a better alternative to tennis if you are not interested in smash bros. I don't think the reviews for superstar tennis were all that good. I tend to avoid buying anything under an 8/10 on IGN.
its ok, but its not anything amazing, worth a rent
I bought it. I like it enough to keep it. I guess the only thing it's missing is online play but other than that if ur skeptical about buying it then rent it.
Not everyone lives in America mate...
Is this going to happen now on every game someone is asking about? Yeah we know ssbb is out there. It's hard to miss. It's not something you really have to hype. The original poster is asking about a tennis game. Despite all its strengths, I don't think Smash has a tennis option. Apples and oranges...
If anyone has any personal experience with Sega Superstar Tennis, I'd love to hear about it too. I'm getting tired of playing the same two players over and over in Wii Tennis now. I'd especially love to hear experiences/preferences the control schemes. The reviews I've read all make reference to the multiple schemes but don't comment much about them.
hey there i curently own sega tennis and it's a cool game I'm a tennis game fan so i went out and bought this one when it had just came out. I currently only play with wimote option only when i'm playing against someone or a character from the game in the match and tournament mode. I find it easier to control as of now b/c of the way i learned how to play from wii sports tennis. But the traditional way you hold the wiimote are required for playing the many mini games that it has through out the game. The nunchunk w/ wiimote is required if you want to hit those power shots that makes it hard for your component to hit back. The games rating is a litte to low from ign IMO. I would have given it at least a 8 but I never listen to reviews anyway so what the hell.:smilewinkgrin: If you want further info about the game just PM me i'll be more than happy to tell you:wink:
My friend's younger brother (who gets a Wii game every time he finishes a book), purchased SEGA Superstars Tennis. When I went to give it a try, I found that it was fun, and kept me hooked for a while. However, like WiiSports, the novelty wears off pretty quick.
While it's an improvement from WiiSports, and the gameplay is creative and fun, the replay value is low.
My Score: 7.5/10
i have this game on ds it is great fun
Thanks for the replies guys... I guess i can wait another month till Mario Kart comes out...:yesnod:
If you like Wii Sports Tennis DO NOT BUY THIS GAME! In fact, do not buy this game full stop. Inspired by the review in The Official Nintendo Magazine who said:
"This has overtaken Wii Sports as our favourite tennis experience on the Wii. It's great fun even if you're not a Sega fan..."
I rushed out to buy it (£34.49). My first impression of it was that it didn't feel as 'tight' as Wii Sports tennis but I thought I must be missing something and persevered. Pretty soon I realised that I could play this game sitting down in my armchair and twitching my Wiimote to play a shot. It just seems to play the shot regardless of how you move the Wiimote. You can play backhand or forehand or any old movement will do it and the timing is very loose. I found I could win against the com players (at Normal setting) very easily without much effort or concentration.
In search of more of a challenge, I went into the Superstars section which involves little missions you can do to unlock more elements of the game. Once I'd got used to the fact that I had to turn my Wiimote sideways and use like a 'traditional' controller, I breezed through the first few missions - some of them first time - without any effort whatsoever.
There's no chance of using your Mii characters like there is in Mario Sonic Olympic Games so you're stuck with the supplied characters and the ones you unlock (up to 16).
To make things more interesting, they've added a 'Superstar state'. This is a star that builds up under your feet as you play. Once completed it enables you to play a silly shot that travels all over the place and is difficult to return. This is nothing short of a gimmick and anyone wanting to play a tennis simulator would switch this feature off immediately.
Navigating around the menus also requires you to use the Wiimote in 'traditional' mode except it works in a vertical position so what would normally be up and down arrows in the mini games are the left and right arrows to navigate through the menus. This is very irritating and makes the game feel like they rushed to get it to market without properly migrating it to make use of the Wii's features.
All in all, this game is very disappointing. I've now played it for about 2 hours and can't see myself getting it out of its box again. It adds nothing to Wii Sports Tennis and its lack on online play just adds to the list of things which are wrong with it. In short, I feel totally ripped off and I'd really like my money back.
My rating: 1/10
PS Interesting to note that people are already selling the game on ebay and it's going for around £20. That tells you all you need to know about what people think of it!
