Is this any good? Nothing really posted here. Love tennis especially virtua tennis, but guess no activity here is a bad thing.

Now I'm not a big tennis fan at all, and after a short go at it, I was gonna write some impressions here, but I'm actually glad I spent a little more time with it before doing so. I really like this game! It's got that real satisfying sound when you hit the ball. Controls at first were a tad frustrating to me, but then I figured it out and could appreciate what the dev was doing here. For a serve, you use the left side of the screen to swipe up or down to make a drop shot or a lob and the right side to swipe to control the direction you wanna hit it. After that, when you're volleying, the left side is for player movement. I kinda felt like as I was moving to the ball I'd get turned around too much, but realized that moving toward the ball and making my decision where to hit it needs to be done fast because the slower you react, the less power you have, making you hit the net and the ball not making it to the other side. You really don't have time to look at the power meter as you play. The controls I guess you'd consider third party, as you're transparent (think Punch Out games) facing forward like that. Don't know if there's any other mode for that. Wish there were different player celebrations other than the one fist pump, too. So far, what I've seen, it seems like a solid game and I keep getting better as I go which is good. Little learning curve, but in the end I can recommend this easily.

Default Game Impressions

I really enjoy this tennis game and its fun to play with swipe controls. Sure its a true Tennis Simulation and its the most fun tennis game I have played in a long time.

There is a free version available for the original game, and is a very good guide to whether you will like this one as both are very similar.

The main attraction this sequel has is its swipe mode; unfortunately the swipe mode is broken, as the direction you swipe in does not affect the trajectory of the ball; rather it is still controlled by the movement direction of your player. The non-swipe controls work as well as they do in the original game though, and after a little getting used to make for a pretty fun experience.

EDIT: Evidently, the game has a handful of other issues as well, such as not saving your preferences and (more seriously) match progress, and on one occasion a weird glitch that made my player face in the wrong direction, requiring a fresh restart. Difficult to recommend this on the whole really, despite solid gameplay roots underneath.

The swipe controls the player movement and, when he is near the ball, it controls the ball direction. The free version is available only for Android version at the moment. In the full version there is auto-save after each match.
