Customer Reviews

Fun But Repetitive

This is the best tennis game on the iPhone. The graphics are great and the playability is good but repetitive. Sega could add so much to the game if they would model it after Tiger Woods Golf. Meaning allowing your player to build skills, buy new equipment and apparel, etc.

A few complaints:
1) I purchased the game and continue to receive one advertisement for another Sega game while it loads. No big deal but many times when I attempt to exit out of the ad it takes me to the store to buy it where I have to exit out of the store and return to the game.
2) I have become very frustrated with the inability to hit winners at the net. What would be a net winner in any real tennis game require 2-3 net shots to win the point.
3) Theron Tenniel is ridiculous and the game blatantly cheats in his favor. I have beaten him at the top level (530,000) but it becomes frustrating when he constantly dives for game winners, gets to balls no one else in the game can reach, and rarely are balls ever called out on him. Not to mention all you get for beating him is money. I finally became so frustrated with the unfair play I deleted the game off my phone. It just wasn't worth my time and aggravation.

Free and fun

I enjoy this game and it's free. A few gripes I have. If exit game via home button it seems to not be hit and miss for saving. So at time will have to replay the match. Also seems to not always register the swipe motion. Will swipe down and it will not do the correct shot. Or I will swipe up and instead my player will just run to the last spot I touched. Also many times player will hit ball out of bounds. Many times I am in the middle of court, hit to me and I will hit to the side and computer player is on opposite side and will go wide and out of bounds.

But it's free and overall still fun to play.

Bug or cheat?

I've played this game for years. TT has always been hard to beat, but I find that using the game pad configuration I can usually hold my own. However, since you first upgrade these controls have become unreliable once I reach the second set only when I've won the first. The controls work only for the serve, but simply won't respond to tapping, won't light up. The control stick allows you to move your player but that's it. This happens with my iPhone and my iPod so I don't think it's a unique issue. To the developer: a response from you would be welcome.
