Download ((INSTALL)) Virtua Tennis 2009 PC Game 2009
Other Than a few new minigames involving hitting wooden pirate ships with tennis balls or potting pool balls with, well, tennis balls again, I can't honestly say that much has changed since I played the very first Virtua Tennis game many years ago.Despite claims of 'revamped'.World Tour modes and various things like that, Virtua Tennis 2009s game model hasn't changed since then - it's still the epitome of arcade action and lacks any depth.

The AI is also either unbelievably rubbish (not moving to hit the ball until it's gone past) or stubbornly perfect (making every rally last an extremely long time). On the harder difficulty settings, the lack of variety in the way you can approach the game really shows, removing the ability to win points with a touch of magic.All in all, Virtua Tennis 2009 is a disappointing and flat experience that's only really any fun when played with a friend, who may make an occasional error.

This is why I'm always reluctant to try out the retail tennis games -- they take what depended on the subtlest of wrist movements in Wii Sports and add unnecessary complication. With enough finesse, timing, and restraint, you can do a whole lot in Wii Sports tennis (except move your player, of course), and the test for any other tennis game is to make all of this possible without requiring you to make any unnaturally exaggerated movements with the remote or hold a button to produce a lob, etc.
I've read 4 or 5 reviews on both games now mostly from reputeable reviewers. I'm happy with the more accessible EA Grand Slam Tennis which I own. Also "09" means your game is "out of date" after a year or less. Not taking anything away from this game which sounds superb. Also, I've had enough of this particular game's engine as I've played previous virtua tennis games as well as sega superstar tennis. I appreciate its entirely different with WiiMotionPlus, but still.
yeah I hate buying games with dates in the title (e.g. 2009 etc...) for the same reason, but at the same time I'd tend to go for a Sega game over EA.Good thing I don't care for tennis too much and won't be getting either. Wii Sports is all I need if I get the tennis itch.
I understand it's a tough decision, and let's be honest, we're spoilt to be in a position to have two MotionPlus-enabled tennis games so close to each other. I like VT but others prefer GST - there's room for both!
Played a bit of GST yesterday as well - the delay is a bit off-putting, and I dislike the graphics, but the technology behind it is undoubtedly good, and the addition of split-screen for two-player is a godsend. The presentation of GST is good too, with commentary and replays and stuff, which is all icing that VT2009 lacks.
The value of options are great and all, but the controls are awful when you want to play this game on a "deeper" level. Its just a trial and error-thing if advanced shots like Drop Shots, Lobs or even Slices work, and I am telling you this after spending lots of hours in training mode. At the beginning I thought its more a thing of learning the controls, since it is pretty easy to make precise standard topspin shots, but for now Im quite sure it isnt. I know its arcade tennis, but still I dont want to have to make the same poo (erm.. I mean shot) over and over again.

Virtua Tennis has almost become a victim of its own success. By nailing the fundamentals with intuitive precision and peerless fluidity at the first attempt, subsequent improvements have been somewhat incremental. The 2001 sequel added female players and speeded up the gameplay a notch, while the third added long-awaited online play and sharpened up the already superb visuals. Apart from updating the roster and perhaps making the online mode a tad more expansive and flexible, there's not much else tennis fans could really want from a 'new' version.
Unlike other tennis games, Virtua Tennis 2009 continues to stick by the series' 'no gimmicks' principle. That means no special power bars, turbo shots, morale meters, energy gauges or hand-crippling button combos. While you'll certainly see and feel when your player has hit the ball sweetly, and notice when your player is starting to tire, it's all pulled off with admirable subtlety. The only time you see a power bar is during the serve, and even that's slightly superfluous.
Ranking up is simple - just enter the singles or doubles tournaments closest to your rank, and attempt to win them. What's not quite so straightforward is improving your abilities. While all previous Virtua Tennis games kept things nice and transparent, 2009's take has you choosing to play the court games or try and beat the numerous challenges housed in the Tennis Academy, and the net result is that you gradually fill up three sections of skill: Ground Strokes, Footwork & Technique, and Serve & Volley. Every time you fill one of these bars, you unlock a new play style, which you can then assign to your player. 23 are available in all, allowing you, for example, to become a Serve & Volley specialist or perhaps a fast runner or big server.
The problem with this system is that all it appears to do is allow you to hot-swap these styles between matches - both offline and on. In previous editions you were safe in the knowledge that your player character was slowly getting better in a variety of tangible ways, and the progress bars accurately reflected how good you could be. You knew that if you gradually levelled up your service or footwork, that there would be a measurable, quantifiable difference when it came to playing a match. The same just isn't true in VT2009, and as a result you never really feel like your player's properly progressing in the usual way.
It has been two years since Sega's Virtua Tennis 3 was released, a game praised for its striking realism and exciting gameplay. Judging by our first hands-off look at the latest instalment in the definitive tennis series--Virtua Tennis 2009--the interim time was well spent. Virtua Tennis 2009 will also see the game's Wii debut alongside mainstay platforms the PS3, Xbox 360, and PC. The game is promising online play, a variety of playable real-life tennis pros, and none of the glitches of its predecessors.
The range of camera views on offer in Virtua Tennis 2009 is a big improvement on the other games in the series. Views include the standard classic view, a spectator view that takes the camera right behind the player's torso, and a lower-angle view behind the boundary line, and there's a possibility that the Wii version of Virtua Tennis 2009 will contain a first-person view.
Offline single-player provides a little more breadth with Career, Tournament, and Arcade modes and Sega's always creative variety of minigames, which include five new challenges. Of these we saw three in action: Meat Defender, Pot Shot, and Zoo Feeder. In Meat Defender you must protect pieces of steak from the approaching crocodiles by hitting them on the head with tennis balls. Pot Shot turns the court into a giant pool table, where you serve the cue ball to try to pot all the balls within an allocated number of shots. In Zoo Feeder, the aim is to feed animals standing either far left of the court or far right by serving the food that is appropriate for them until they fall asleep. Monkeys like bananas, lions do not, and they'll indicate thusly if you screw it up. Although the minigames sound easy, they get increasingly harder as your skill level goes up. 041b061a72
