ATP is a tennis fan's dream come true with every aspect and detail of the sport brought to life.
GamePro (US)
One big plus is ATP's adjustable difficulty. Set speed to "Extremely Slow" and the Ball Bounce Pointer to "On" and you have a tennis game for beginners who are eager to play their way up to the championships. Good tennis at all levels makes ATP A-Okay.
Video Games & Computer Entertainment
The digitized speech samples include all of the player names, along with some McEnroe-type exclamations sch as "Aw, that was a lousy call! You must be blind!!" With it's real players and host of options, ATP Tour Championship Tennis improves on last year's Wimbledon cart in nearly every category and is another star in the Sega Sports lineup.
Video Games
Die unglaublich vielen Features von ATP Tennis lassen wirklich keinen Wunsch offen. Eine Batterie speichert alle Informationen, jeder Aspekt des Spiels läßt sich an Eure Vorlieben anpassen. Wenn Ihr die komplette Tour spielt, gibt‘s sogar eine Punkte- und Geldrangliste. Spielerisch kann Segas Tennissimulation nicht mit Jimmy Connors auf dem SNES mithalten, es gibt einfach nicht genug Variationsmöglichkeiten. Auch die Replay-Funktion hätte man besser gestalten können, denn statt dem gesamten Ballwechsel sieht man nur den letzten geschlagenen Ball.
Game Players
Small player sprites, cartoonish ball action and choppy animations take away from the realism. But those factors don't take anything away from the arcade feel of the gameplay, which is enhanced by the solid and simple controls. A wealth of stats are kept for each match and a battery back up feature saves the progress of up to four players. Other features include a four-player double option (with a Team Player Adapter) and a Senior Tour play mode that lets you fill the tennis shoes of eight legends, like Arthur Ashe and Rod Laver. So strap on the tennies and hit the courts. Tennis, anyone?
Ultimately, there are two kinds of people who are likely to play ATP Tour Championship Tennis: casual gamers seeking a quick game of singles or doubles with friends, and hardcore types like myself who will doggedly stick with a game to the bitter end. Otherwise, the game’s above-average court feel and ball dynamics, and its roster of real-life players and past legends, don’t quite compensate for its lack of depth, weak challenge, and excessive length.
The Video Game Critic
The career mode offers extended replay value, but not being able to save your progress between sets is a deal breaker. One set can last a long time, and this game is hard on your hands. If there's one big selling point for ATP Tennis, it would have to be the four-player mode. My friends had a heck of a lot of fun playing this, and didn't even want to stop.
