Review: Grand Slam Tennis 2

27 Feb

With successful franchises in just about every other sport, EA has decided to step on Centre Court and see if they can serve up an ace in the form of Grand Slam Tennis 2. In a complete 180 from the first title on the Wii, Grand Slam Tennis 2 has HD graphics, every grand slam venue to play on, solid online modes, and tennis’ current stars as well as the legends of the past as playable characters. With plenty of other tennis games out there, does this one have what it takes to become the world number one in tennis video games?


I’ve previously stated a good deal about this game, but now for the full review. Honestly, I wasn’t impressed with this game at all. While it’s a great tennis game and should be liked by any that play it, there just wasn’t anything about the game that I haven’t already done or experienced in other tennis sims. It’s definitely time something else becomes the norm for tennis games… I don’t want to play the same game over and over again. Although maybe that’s the appeal to some people; I don’t, after all, understand why people buy each new Madden every year.

Anyhoozle, the review can be read at Machinima. Check it out, yo!

I have a total man-crush on Roger Federer. And playing against him in this game is the closest I'll get to the champ.

    Good review, man. It sounds like a decent enough game, but perhaps it’s best to just roll with an older (and cheaper) tennis title for now…? What is the best tennis game for the 360/PS3? I may end up picking one up since it has been so long since I got my tennis fix.

      I’d go with Top Spin 4 for the 360/PS3. It is a better version of this game, and it looks better too.
