Virtua Tennis manque son rendez-vous avec le N-Gage et déçoit par son manque d'efficacité et son contenu limité. Le gameplay n'est pas mauvais mais il souffre d'une grave lenteur au niveau de la vitesse de jeu, ce qui rend les matches guère passionnants. Ceux qui auront le choix se tourneront sans hésiter vers la version GBA.
Wieder handelt es sich um eine leicht abgeänderte Version eines GBA-Spieles, allerdings kann die N-Gage-Fassung nicht ganz mit der für Nintendos Marktführer mithalten. Denn leider kommen weder Präzision der Steuerung noch die Spielgeschwindigkeit an die anderen Virtua Tennis-Geschwister heran.
Super Play
Trots att en del av mig verkligen avskyr det här spelet, står jag ut med dess brister för ytterligare ett par game mot svenske M Nilsson eller någon annan av de påhittade spelarna. Bärbar tennis är trots allt en svårslagen underhållningsform.
Virtua Tennis isn't much for showmanship; it's a simulation of the tennis experience with an easy-to-use and elegant engine on other systems. This represents the skeletal version of the game, without much in the way of graphic flair, and controls that are even MORE simple (if slow) than in any previous version. But, in the grand tradition of hitting a ball back and forth, you can't go too wrong with wireless pong.
Virtua Tennis could have been a great addition to the N-Gage library, but it unfortunately doesn’t make the cut due to its snail’s pace gameplay and stripped down game modes. If you just have to have a tennis game for your N-Gage, make sure you have someone to play with in multiplayer mode – playing against the computer gets old half way through the first match.
During the process of being ported to the N-Gage, Virtua Tennis was crippled pretty severely. The lack of gameplay options is unfortunate but forgivable. The slow pacing and choppy animation, however, irreparably damage the gameplay experience, thus turning something that was intended to be fast-paced and fun into something that is now leaden.
