The sound effects are ludicrously exaggerated, the umpire has clearly borrowed Stephen Hawking's voice synthesiser and... oh, it's all too tedious to go into. Look, just go out and get Pete Sampras Tennis instead, alright?
Donc, c'est pas mal, mais y a mieux. Alors tant pis, on l'oublie.
Nonetheless, you can't escape the feeling that we've been here before. Other tennis games – admittedly less attractive – had variety and role-playing elements years ago. In particular, TENNIS ELBOW tries hard to emulate the Amiga version of PRO TENNIS TOUR (1991, Ubi Soft), but falls short of the elegance and replayability of that game. It's a shame, too, that the controls for tennis simulations seem to have advanced to little in the past half-decade.
So sehr mir der weiße Sport im echten
Leben gefällt (wenn ich mal zum Spielen
komme) – dieser Tennisarm ist nicht der
Weisheit letzter Schluß. Grafisch macht
das Filzkugelgeklopfe gar keinen
schlechten Eindruck, und für die Mittagspause
ist es zu gebrauchen. Im
Doppel brauche ich aber fast nichts zu
tun, da mein Partner aufopferungsvoll
von einer Seite zur anderen stürmt.
Neben der Steuerungsproblematik
geben mir Netzduelle zu denken, bei
denen der Ball acht-, neunmal im Zehntelsekundentakt
hin- und hergedroschen
wird – haben die Programmierer
jemals einen Court betreten?
It was exciting to see that a new tennis game has finally come out, but Tennis Elbow does not live up to its marks. Although the graphics look good at first glance, the players have a very limited range of motion which leads to frustrating points. One positive part of the game is its tournament interface. It is relatively easy to set up and maintain a tournament in Tennis Elbow, but this was not enough for the game to gain higher scores. Where the game falls apart is its implementation of playing the actual game of tennis. The controls are severely lacking and the animations are not all the way there.Tennis Elbow looks good, but looks do not always make a good game!
