Unless you've got another person to play this one with, it's a tough call whether or not it's worth the admission price. There's an extreme lack of options and the game is so ridiculously easy, you'll have it beat in no time. Still, it does play well enough to be enjoyable, just be warned there's not a whole lot of substance.

Hier wurden wir allerdings ziemlich frustriert, da die CPU-Spieler so gut wie keinen Fehler machen. Ihr müßt Euch jeden Punkt mühsam erspielen. Jeder Profi weiß, daß man so nur sehr schwer gewinnt. Stellt Euch also schon mal auf einige 0:6-Klatschen ein. Vielleicht hilft ja ein Training gegen einen menschlichen Mitspieler. Der Turnierverlauf kann übrigens abgespeichert werden.
Graphiquement, le jeu est plutôt réussi même si l’on aurait aimé davantage de variété dans les décors. La bande son par contre, n’est pas brillante : passe encore pour les bruitages simplistes, mais on aurait aimé pouvoir désactiver la musique qui, composée de très courtes mélodies enchaînées en boucle, devient franchement crispante. Cela dit, Pocket Tennis reste agréable et on est rapidement pris dans la course aux coupes.
