Virtua Tennis 2009 - Wii review at Thunderbolt Games


Being English, to me tennis comprises of two weeks in June with lots of strawberries & cream, Pimm's and rain. Like many I find myself itching to go out and play, but a mixture of being useless and lazy in equal measures mean I stay indoors. Of course...

Pangya: Fantasy Golf


Pangya: Fantasy Golf makes a name for itself in the world of video game golf by combining the familiar gameplay and item collection-based formula of Hot Shots Golf with a strange, anime-style story mode. \r\n Anyone familiar with old school, pre-analog...

Virtua Tennis 2009 [Nintendo Wii]


Virtua Tennis 2009 is one of the first games to use the new Wii Motion Plus controller. The Motion Plus makes the motion controls more sensitive with no lag to give the game a more realistic feel. It is highly recommended that you play the game with...

Amusing Mini-Games ; Good sensitive controls ; Wii Motion Plus compatibility ; Online multiplayer available

No split screen multiplayer ; Some lag in online multiplayer ; Scoreboard gets in the way of play

Its time to get off the couch and compete to be the best tennis player in the world against "Virtua" versions of the worlds best or just your friends.

Virtua Tennis 2009


Virtua Tennis is too easy and inconsistent to entertain you for long.

World Tour mode is way too easy ; Steep learning curve ; Online play is mired in lag

A step in the right direction for a series that's stuck in the mud.

Virtua Tennis 2009


Competently boring.

Visually, the game borderlines on awful, and I was really disappointed in the overall look. The character models are ugly, and while the options for the create a player mode are decent, it's hard to get anything created that you'll want to look at...

Virtua Tennis 2009 Review (Wii)


series has an unusual history of making itself a showpiece for new gaming technology

MotionPlus detection is accurate. Mini-games, while scarce, remain fun. Cheaper than most Wii games

Updated' career mode is tedious. Online play ruined by lag. You get what you pay for

Virtua Tennis 2009


Virtua Tennis 2009 is a solid, enjoyable game however lacks the finesse of other Wii tennis titles in the market.

Works well, even without MotionPlus. Nice career mode and mini-games

Annoying if you let the AI control your player to any degree. Lags online

Virtua Tennis 2009


Tennis in video gaming has been around for a very long time. Pong was just a low res version of the game. While tennis games in the early age of gaming weren't really much to get excited about, the past decade has yielded some fantastic results, all of...

MotionPlus controls are great, once you've mastered them ; World Tour mode online works quite well ; Create-a-player is a nice option, with a fair amount of customization ; Training minigames are fun

Series hasn't changed much since the Dreamcast ; Audio is extremely weak ; Framerate issues and jaggy visuals

World Tour mode online works quite well

Virtua Tennis 2009 Review (Wii)


Virtua Tennis is unquestionably the best “arcade” tennis game in recent times, with excellent accessibility to the title and true “pick up and play” qualities.  With the release of the MotionPlus accessory for Wii, Sega have decided to bring this...

Virtua Tennis 2009 doesn’t revolutionise tennis on the Wii, but it will probably be a more exciting experience for anyone that finds tennis a little lacklustre. The mini-games have always been the strength of the series, and provide fun diversions in...
