I was about to buy this but the recent reviews in the app store are holding me back.

One of my new FAVORITE games on my new ipad. The graphics are really great, the gameplay is great, the game is just great!

On my iphone 4, slight framerate problems but still playable.

On the new ipad though, it is gorgeous, and while it plays a lot different than the arcade version of Virtua Tennis, this adaptation is very realistic and very fun. Only thing that is a drag is that they don't have real players in it.

But great game, highly highly recommend this game!

Didn't buy it at full price and probably won't at 99c. If only the graphics were optimised better for the iPhone 4.

Yeah, to enjoy it, you probably need a 4s or a new ipad. But heck it's only a buck, and the new iphone 5 is going to be out which will handle it well. But framerates are definitely a problem in older iphones and ipads.

But have to say for a quick fix, this is one of the funnest sports games on my new ipad. Nothing comes close. 2011 2k nhl, fifa 12, and nba jam are ok, but Virtua Tennis is in a class of it's own right now. Love the game, it rocks!

Interested but written reviews and videos mention the frame rate issues for my device.

Always on the lookout for good tennis games. Might be worth a try actually.

I like pushing carts. Especially ones with oversized bombs.

Works great on the 4S. Fantastic game. Amazing what you can get for less than a dollar today....
