Still Needs Some Improvements
First of all, I see people complaining about how hard it is to beat Willy Beacher without buying a racket. I bageled him (6-0) without having to buy one. The game is a combination of tennis strategy and timing, which is nice. However, if the opined hits a nice shot and decided to approach the net, or if they do a serve and volley, there aren't many ways to stop that. There should also be a way to control the number of sets you play in a Grand Slam match. Even when I triple bagel the opponent in straight sets, it is still a 20 minute affair, which is way too long and inconvenient for an iPhone game. On top of that, if you kill the app, you lose all of your progress in that tournament. There should also be a way to play with friends head-to-head via wifi just like in Stick Cricket. Overall, I love the game. Great concept, but only good execution.
Fun but could be a lot better
Fun game for the most part. I like how it has many different modes and it gives you a scale for timing. But now let's get to the bad parts. I hated the fish casino ad. It took way too long.
I also didn't like that you had to pay 3 bucks to play the players in the "beat them all" mode. What I hated and the reason I deleted the app was when your player just stood there when the opponent served the ball more than two steps away from your person. Same thing at the net. When I would hit a cross court approach shot, my player didn't even bother to move to the down the line passing shot. Another thing is when my opponent would hit a short lob, my player would just wait there until the ball came to him instead of moving forward and attacking. He would just wait there and I could have easily hit a winner but instead I would get passed down the line because my crappy player would decide not to move the ball.
Has a good basis, but needs more.
I have played many games that involve tennis from the App Store. Although this is not the worst tennis game I've played it is not the best. Here are some positives: it provides a meter of whether or not you are hitting the ball too early or too late, it provides different game mode options, and the direction you swipe in is accurate to where the ball should go. The negatives are being forced to buy racquets with better quality in order to actually have fun, quality lies within the player not the racquet, and the meter tends to be tough to make an exact matchup for a perfect ball strike. I have somewhat fun playing with this app, but I wish I could have more fun. I know the creators want to make their money, but there has to be a better way.
