    This is the game that changed the way people see tennis sports games. Before Virtua Tennis a lot of attempts were made but none could deliver the amount of fun packed in this game. Once again Sega shows how to make innov... Read Full Review

    You already know Sega's game of tennis is more Pete Sampras than Tim Henman but that doesn't stop me making a racquet...

    If you haven't owned a tennis game yet, it's about time. I don't even like the sport and I love this game to death.

    Tennis has not had a great showing in video game history, Pong was the best back and forth action the industry had seen, up until Virtua Tennis rejuvenated the sport's video game appeal, and has been challenge by few sin... Read Full Review
