Grand Slam Tennis 2 (Xbox 360)

 

Grand Slam Tennis 2 comes to the sports gaming sphere when fans of the sport already have two other options: Top Spin 4 and Virtua Tennis 4. To stand out from its competition, it's coming onto the court as the only game with all four Grand Slam venues...

In 2009, I was one of the first purchasers of the then new and innovativeGrand Slam Tennis title from EA Sports. It was only being released on the Wii, and at that time, Wii Motion Plus was just being released. As a fan, player, and lover of the game...

New this year is ESPN Grand Slam Classics. In this mode, you'll unlock many of the famous matches from Grand Slam lore, dating back to the mid 1900s. It's a blast to play in these well-remembered duels with players like Sampras, McEnroe, Borg, and the...

The sport of tennis is played throughout the entire world by all levels of society and is a huge spectator sport. The Grand Slam tournaments consistently draw the biggest crowds and even celebrities to their courts. Grand Slam Tennis 2 brings the...

The soundtrack for the game was done by DJ Paul van Dyk and seems to fit pretty well in the menus. It kind of sounds like elevator music, but strangely fits while scrolling through the menus. Once you get into the actual match commentary is done by the...

What's your favorite fuzzy-ball-hitting joke?

Beautiful environments; Plenty of big names; Twin-stick controls are a breeze; Playing online is super smooth

Weak character creation; Repetitive commentary

That said, this is definitely a solid game for tennis fans (and needy bastards like me). The play is smooth, the commentary is amusing, and it ain't too bad to look at. The career is filled with real courts and unlockable upgrades like new shoes and...

Don't let the name fool you; Grand Slam Tennis 2 is a far cry from its predecessor for Nintendo's Wii console. Instead, EA has decided to revamp the entire game making it more akin to its realistic...

Beautiful animations ; Easily accessible ; Plenty of depth ; Very rewarding

Career mode drags on ; Commentary dies out quick

Don’t let the name fool you; Grand Slam Tennis 2 is a far cry from its predecessor for Nintendo’s Wii console. Instead, EA has decided to revamp the entire game making it more akin to its realistic sports franchises, and thus, catering to a whole new...

I would be doing everyone a disservice if I didn't start my review of Grand Slam Tennis 2 by fully disclosing that I am a huge tennis fan. It's

Does Grand Slam Tennis 2 compete with Top Spin 4? On the surface it does give the reigning king a run at it but manages to fall short. The career mode is limiting, the analog stick controls need refining, and the game itself doesn’t have the depth that...

EA Sports delivers a consummately professional tennis game with some nice innovations and plenty of detail – but does it have personality, too?

Grand Slam Tennis is as slick and professional a tennis game as you could hope for, and though it lacks something of Top Spin's passion for the sport, the inclusion of Wimbledon and the wider roster really do make a difference. There's room for...

EA Sports is a fearsome beast. Every year, it ensures that teams of hundreds churn out iterative sequels with industrial efficiency. It's terrifyingly prolific; a bit like Santa's workshop, except Santa has been replaced with Peter Moore and his funny...

Despite EA Sports leaving itself plenty of room for improvement in future iterations of Grand Slam Tennis, what’s here is enjoyable. Perhaps a little too easy for tennis veterans, the experience of being out on court, thwacking the ball around is great...

Good visuals and accessible controls can't mask Grand Slam Tennis 2's weak career mode.

Only tennis game with all four Grand Slam venues ; Various control options that are all easy to grasp ; Great roster of classic players

Weak career mode ; Only a few court locations ; Female roster lacks top stars

There are a few problems with the career mode. The first is that it's limited. On top of the fact that there are only a few match types, there are only four major and four minor events available. This means that once the year is done, you may have seen...

Grand Slam Tennis 2 includes a whole bunch of features that will make hardcore tennis fans happy.

Here's my final word on the game: As someone who is admittedly not a tennis fan, I enjoyed my time with Grand Slam Tennis 2. That being said, it won't convert me into a tennis fanatic, and I wouldn't necessarily recommend it to anyone other than...
