The first few games may be quite off-putting, due to the amount of effort required just to hit the ball, but practice makes perfect, and with a few games under your belt, you'll soon be getting into the swing of things. The match itself is extremely competitive, and exciting in one or two player modes. The number of options available is very impressive, making it a game you can come back to for quite a while. If you're a fan of the sport, or just after something a little different, then you'd be well advised to have a peek.
Well, there's no doubt that this is a very accomplished game. The graphics are clear and zippy and the gameplay's as smooth as a Cadburys Wispa (ie very, very smooth indeed). But where it stopped short for me was my basic interest in squash. It's not that I've got anything against squash, just that I'm not terribly interested in it - and you really need to be to keep plugging away at Jahangir Khan for hour after hour. The computer opponents are just too hard and it all tends to get slightly repetitive. 2-player mode is more fun (rallies don't last too long - usually about 3 hits - but at least you don't have to put up with being humiliated by your Speccy all the time) but it's still pretty tricky to get the hang of it all.
