My Virtual Tennis Review + Suggestions

I absolutely love this game, is such a great copy of real tennis however I have a couple great suggestions for me to like it even better and for people to enjoy it more. My first suggestion is adding a challenge circle or square so you can challenge the balls and see a clear view of the ball. I always do volleys and it says it’s out and I don’t see it out so a challenge circle or square would just make it so good. I also play tennis champs which has challenge and it’s so good but the game is not as good as this one. I would also add a speech thing where it reads the score for you and tells you “Mr/Mrs. Is challenging the call, the ball was called in.” These are my suggestions and I think that if you do this, people are gonna love it a lot more. Thanks ! I’ll keep playing and keep winning to get some wins !!!

Good but needs work

First, for those of you having issues beating Theron Tenniele, here's a tip, don't hit to his all. I only hit to his forehand if it's going to be a winner, otherwise I hit EVERYTHING to his backhand.

I've been playing this game for some time now, and It's definitely one of the better tennis games for iPad. I use the on screen buttons for controls, but find often during a match that the buttons are way too small. I end up pressing the space between the buttons quite often. Would be awesome if those were scaleable so we could make them bigger or smaller. Also as some others have pointed out, it's almost comical how the game works when playing Theron Tenniele. It never fails, first set I beat him 6-0, and then in the second set I'm up 4-0 or 5-0 and then the game gets player doesn't hit the ball as hard anymore, he runs erratically around the court, doesn't hit the ball at all or some other odd behavior. He usually wins 2, 3, 4 or 5 games in a row because of this before I weather the storm. I always know around game 4 of the second set, I will have a fight my hands because getting to and hitting the ball becomes an obstacle, and it has nothing to do with the way the Theron Tenniele is playing. If the player is going to beat me, let the player beat me, don't make my player glitch, so now I have to fight the software and the player. Other than that, the game is good.

It’s playable but needs work

I’ve been into Virtua Tennis since playing the original in the arcade. I was happy to see it still existing in some form. Unfortunately this version needs work. First off, the frame rate is bad on my 10.5” iPad Pro. The gameplay isn’t smooth at all, which is not good for a game like Virtua Tennis. Second, the analog stick doesn’t work when using a controller. The D-pad is okay, but far from ideal. The analog stick is a much better option.

A few other things. Since this a mobile game, the ability to save during a match and resume later on would be nice. Also, I’d love to see an arcade mode where you have a match against each player in succession with increasing difficulty.

I’m giving this three stars because I’m happy Virtua Tennis still exists. The game is playable, even if the experience is subpar at the moment. The graphics, animations, and controls are good enough, so this could be great with some work.
