To someone who isn't a huge tennis fan this game was surprisingly fun, although especially the gameplay could've been improved to cater more for those who just want more arcade-like action. People who just like tennis, and want to play it like you're intended to are likely to love Perfect Ace, but I think it's fair to say that those who aren't already fans of tennis will probably find it a bit boring after a few hours. In terms of graphics and audio the game does well enough, at least to satisfy those who value gameplay over graphics.

Perfect Ace can be an easy to pick up tennis game, but more often than not it ends up a frustrating and unpolished experience. Plus, there simply aren’t enough game modes to entice hardcore tennis fans for very long. At best, Perfect Ace is worth picking up simply because its one of the only games of its kind on the PC, but don’t expect to be playing it for a long time.

Lastly, I should also note that Perfect Ace becomes exceptionally addictive if you play with your friend against CPU opponents - that way the outcome of a match depends on the combined skills of both players. The game's overall simplicity and intense matches can offer players a lot of hours of decent entertainment. Sadly, the fun is temporary if you're participating in single-player Championships and Tournaments. Also, the lackluster graphics and the locked low-res mode significantly ruined our impressions of the game. We're sure that, if the developers had taken the time to tweak all these issues and the AI bugs, Perfect Ace would've gotten a considerably higher score from us.

Rechnen wir mal nach: World Tennis Ace ist ein solides Tennisspiel mit akzeptabler KI, linzenzlosen Sportlern sowie 08/15-Grafik und kostet 15 Euro. Top Spin ist unsere Tennis-Referenz mit noch klügerer KI, lizenzierten Stars, TV-reifer Präsentation, nachvollziehbarer Physik sowie variantenreicher Steuerung – und kostet 10 Euro. Ergebnis: Wer Top Spin kauft, bekommt also das bessere Spiel und spart zudem 5 Euro.

In Conclusion, Perfect Ace Pro Tennis Tournament is a refreshing, warm and inviting title to the bland sporting gaming genre. The major let down in this game is the below average graphics and the monotones gameplay. It is a hard game to get motivated to play, you really have to be able to see past the below average gameplay which makes the game appear disjointed and confused, and concentrate on the central, more appealing features of the game.

If only the rest of Perfect Ace could be so clever. If only that same someone, somewhere who had a light bulb burst in his head actually played Virtua Tennis and made it a priority to outdo that game and not disgrace its very existence with this, the title that's designed to wipe a boy clean of his will, decency, love for the sport, and faith in mankind.

Perfect Ace is neither perfect nor particularly ace but in the absence of any great PC tennis titles, it's as good a way as any to practise your backhand without breaking into a sweat.

Mit „perfekt“ hat Perfect Ace Tennis nun wirklich nichts zu tun. Vielmehr handelt es sich um eine lieblose Konsolenumsetzung, bei der sich der Entwickler nicht mal die Zeit genommen hat, Auflösungen jenseits der 640x480 einzubauen. Gleichermaßen unterdurchschnittlich ist die Steuerung: Die eigene Schlaghärte ist nicht immer nachzuvollziehen, zudem reagieren die Spieler teilweise etwas träge. Ebenfalls extrem störend: die Perspektive. Die Kamera zoomt häufig zu nah ran und die Übersicht geht flöten. Bei weiten Schlägen des Gegners kann man dann höchstens raten, ob der Ball das Feld trifft oder nicht.
