Virtua Tennis 2009 (Wii)
Advantages: Some fun little games
Disadvantages: Not as fun as regular Wii tennis
I love being tennis on the Wii. I generally play the tennis game on the Wii Sports but decided to try a new tennis game and so picked up a copy of Virtua Tennis 2009 for Wii. Unfortunately though I really did not like it and did not find it as good or as fun as tennis on Wii Sports. Virtua Tennis is apparently the world's number 1 tennis series
This game is compatible with the Wii Motion Plus which allows for a more realistic movement whilst playing tennis so I was excited about this fact. I was hoping it was going to be just like playing real tennis in the comfort of my own living room. I have to say that you do definitely get a more realistic playing movement but it is quite sensitive so sometimes just a little movement of the remote will mean that you miss the ball instead of being able to hit it. Serving is quite good as you flick your wrist and then get a bar that comes up on the screen which lets you gauge where the ball is going to go.
I found the menu in this game very hard to navigate and I have to say I was never quite sure if I was in the right place and sometimes I was not even able to find a tennis match to play. You can pick a player that you want to play with and the computer allows you to develop it yourself. For example you can pick their face, hair colour, height and weight etc. You can also go into the tennis store where you can purchase clothes or sports accessories.
The game features a Global Map which is kind of like the home base where you go to access all the options available to you but I found it hard to access some of the options as it would not let me into some games or tournaments.
The part of the game I did like was the court games where you could play fun silly little games to practice your tennis strokes. For example you can play Court Curling where you play with curling stones or Zoo Feeder where food is throw over the net by zoo keepers to feed their animals.
The game is a 3+ but I have to say not a very fun game to play.
