First impressions of Grand Slam Tennis

June 15, 2009

I’m not very good at tennis in real life, but I do quite enjoy the idea of playing tennis. Last week, EA sent over a copy of Grand Slam Tennis for Wii and I spent my friday night engaged in battle with the world’s best tennis superstars.

Grand Slam Tennis is made to take advantage of the Wii Motion Plus add on coming this year and even without it, the experience was very real and quite enjoyable. Saturday morning my body was sore almost as if I’d actually played a full set against one of the Williams’ sisters. I just used the basic Wii Remote only control scheme and I quickly realized that you almost have to stand in a real tennis pose to accurately play this game.

I’ve got a lot more to experience in this title and I may shelf the full review until I get a Motion Plus unit in my hands, but my first impressions are that this is a very solid title and quite fun.
