It's ok... Could be improved.

I think Virtua Tennis Challenge is ok. I love the gameplay about how that the tournaments change every four days. However though, when actually playing tennis in the game it needs some more work on. It's more boring than Virtua Tennis 4, because no music plays during the gameplay. It would be a 4 star game if that was added. It would be a 5 star game if you added custom tennis player options. You can make up to 8 of them, which would be a great way to begin a world tour. And one more thing: Can you please add real pro players like Serena Williams or Roger Federer, and female players? I was eagerly wanting it since my first day of playing this game. If you add that I would play this game more often. Thanks!

Oh, By the way, it's been a while since your last console virtua Tennis game. You should make a virtua tennis game for nintendo switch! It should be called either Virtua Tennis 5 or Virtua Tennis 2017 (or 2018). You should add new pro players like Karolina Pliskova, Stan Wawrinka, Angelique Kerber, Kei Nishikori and more. However, players like Anna Chaztezde (whatever her last name is... I cannot spell it right), she can drop out of playable players because of retirement. Instead she can be a coach in training, otherwise, it could be a different retired player.

So, do you like those ideas? I hope you make a virtua tennis game for nintendo switch soon because I want this extraordinary series to continue. Thanks a lot!

Ok but could be better

As another person has mentioned there’s room for improvement. One of the major things for me is the fact that it’s optional to pay to remove ads yet it’s actually not optional due to the fact that you cannot start a multiplayer game because of an ad always being on the start button. Game also is abit hit and miss with the controls sometimes the player won’t even hit the ball. Overall not a bad game but nowhere near as good as the old virtua tennis games

Don’t buy it’s a hoax

Game is an absolute hoax. Funny how you flog everyone until certain guys in the final of a major and than you can’t even hit the ball back without lobbing it. Spent 4hrs playing the number 1 guy in the final and couldn’t even get close after constantly resetting the app. So the game lets you win when it wants and will not let you win when it wants, it doesn’t matter how good you are.
These are the issues I had in the final and only in the final:
1. The game would start stuttering and couldn’t move my player properly when I was leading
2. Couldn’t hit a hard shot is just kept lobbing it back to him.
3. Would hit it out but this doesn’t happen in any other match. Actually one time I had 3 set point and hit it out 3 times in a row.
4. The other player can chase down any ball.
5. I went through every style and couldn’t get close.
6. The other player constantly hits is back hard even when you have clearly beaten him.

And I only say this because I don’t loose any points on any other stages or tournaments. If they fixed up there programme the game would be worth it.

Also paid for no ads but ever time I open the game I receive an ad to get other games.

Don’t waste your time with this game
