I've played this on our HP TouchPad and it's a really good tennis game for tablets/smartphones, but I would much prefer the non-included virtual joystick option. I loved playing Real Tennis 2009 by Gameloft, but if this is anything like the Android version, you'll have to do a lot of swiping.

Love it how everyone is saying 'insta buy' and so on.

The game was I believe an Xperia Play exclusive - so until the game has been released we won't know how it translates on to touch screen.

So for me not so much as an insta buy as a 'wait for peoples comments and reviews online buy'.

I have been using the "Swipe" controls for about a month now on my S2(As it has been available for a while on Android),I was gutted about it at 1st until I played it and it's a very good way to play on touchscreen,a lot more enjoyable than I thought,and it makes more sense!!:-)

I bought this game on my iPhone 4, and there are many options for traditional virtual joystick controls, not just swipe ones. I found the framerate to be slightly low though...but the game is still playable. Excellent tennis game.
