Grand Slam Tennis is the most realistic tennis game to date.

Story

Grand Slam Tennis let's you create a character and try to win all four of pro tennis' Grand Slam tournaments. You start out with zero of five stars, but as the game goes on you get better and better. You also get three, possibly four, challenge before each tournament actually begins. One of these challenges lets you play a famous player and gain their signature skill, such as: Andy Roddick's Serve, Maria Sharapova's backhand, etc... There are several different skills and they can be represented as bronze, silver, and gold medals, gold being the best of course. Trust me, trying to win the Grand Slam is a lot of fun.

Gameplay

The gameplay is what makes Grand Slam Tennis so special. The game is one of the first games on the Wii to use the Wii MotionPlus. The way you hit the ball is as real as it gets for now in the world of video games. I have never had so much fun playing a tennis game. If you have ever played tennis, or you just know a thing or two about simple physics and angled, this game will be very easy to pick up. Grand Slam Tennis has very good online support. One of the best on the Wii. You can either play singles, or call up one of your friends and play doubles.

Graphics

Graphics are Grand Slam Tennis' downfall. Everything else in the game is amazing, but the graphics are just a joke. This would highly affect some other games' score, but I just don't believe it is what EA was going for at all. The game was made for its gameplay and that is it.

Control

Grand Slam Tennis' controls are the best in a tennis game to date. If you haven't played it with the Wii MotionPlus yet, I urge you to go pay $19.99 to get one. It is well worth it. I have never played a game on the Wii with motion controls that are so precise. You will never want to play tennis on Wii Sports again.

Sound

The souns in the game are great. Each player in the game makes the same exact sound that he or she makes in real life. The music in Grand Slam Tennis is upbeat and very enjoyable. The commentators say just enough, not too little, not too much.

Overall

If you play tennis or just like to watch it, this game will appeal to you the most. It is the next best thing as far as real tennis goes.
