Well, the question is what device you have. If you have an iphone 4 or older, the framerates are pretty bad.

On my new ipad 3, it is passable, and I would highly recommend, it is a really fun game and well made, and I am a 5.5 advanced tennis player.

If you have an iphone 5 or ipad 4, I heard it was running really well. I am not sure on an ipad 2 or ipad mini, so maybe someone can post how it runs on theirs.

But on my new ipad, it runs great. Make sure you are on ios 6.0.1 not ios 6.0 cause the framerates got a lot better I upgraded.

Running it on Mini and experience is far from fluid... Really tiny, but noticeable slowdowns here and there. Deleted again

I don't get it, I own VTC, and never have I witnessed any of the flaws you're all talking about on the iphone 4; framerate is nice and allows satisfying tennis sessions, only slows down a little when there are cutscenes like when winning a point, or at the beginning of a match; on the other hand, I can't really tell about music stopping, as I usually don't play with sound at all. I'm jailbroken and I tweaked my phone so that some daemons aren't running anymore (no spotlight, no voiceover, etc etc), maybe that explains it ?

Game Impressions

The graphics and animations are great, but they're not optimised for recent iPhones.

Controls seem good as well at first, until it starts to do its own thing rather than correctly translating our input. Switching to other control modes won't help as the gamepad and virtual buttons are beyond horrible.

Worst of all, the game is rigged. You can't upgrade your stats or strengths while your rival is superhuman, especially in finals.

After countless rematches, I've finally managed to be #1, but even now it's almost always impossible to beat the atomic forehand. I mean, seriously, what the f is atomic forehand? Why can't I choose atomic counter or atomic defense or atomic laser beam? It's ridiculous.

I initially thought it was just me and that I missed something, but reading all reviews in the appstore, it's obvious everyone thinks the game is rigged. Which is plain weird as they don't even have IAP to push players spending more money.

Still, it's understandable people get excited over 'virtua tennis in your pocket' kind of thing. There aren't too many tennis games in the appstore as well so it looks better than it really is.

Anyone out there with a new device like the air, 5s, or mini retina?

How's the game running?

Even on an ipad 4 there are some slight framerate issues like the ipad 3.

How's this like on the newest gen of 64 bit cpus?
