An announcement today and release next month?

 

Also only Australian open. Bet they are going to make a game for each Grand Slam and sell it. O3XuuuM.png

 

The game will feature grass, hard courts and clay, but it’s probably unlikely that other Grand Slams will be named. It’s also unclear if Rafael Nadal and Angelique Kerber will be the only top players in the game.

 

The game will also have a full career mode where you start out as number 1,500 in the world and work your way to the top.

 

Career mode without any proper Grand Slams? So just random no-named tournaments? Meh!

Other grand slams would be like what they had in DBC named something similar to represent the title but name would be generic...Also would think it will also have academy like all their games...

 

Seeing Nadal I was excited as I would think they would have mo capped him into the game..

Daria Gavrilova is one of Australia's real stars, and we're all hoping she has a superb Australian Open. Here's a full render showing you what she looks like in AO Tennis!

Destanee Aiava is one of the brightest Australian up-and-comers. She's also fully rendered in AO Tennis, in photorealistic detail. Here's her player scan!

Update on Facebook :

 

Hi everyone! Important update on the game below:

We know that you’re all super keen to see gameplay footage, however there are some great things at this year’s Australian Open that need to be kept under wraps until the first match begins. Very soon all will be revealed and you will certainly have an opportunity to see the game in action before purchasing.

Thank you for patience and interest in AO Tennis - we can't wait to get this one in your hands. In the meantime we've got two new screenshots to share, captured from games in action.

Have a great weekend everyone!

Absolute garbage as expected. OkoLCWE.png

 

Gamespot: 3/10

 

THE GOOD

  •  N/A

THE BAD

  •  Bland visuals and lifeless character animations
  •  Movement and swings feel clumsy and inconsistent
  •  Lack of tutorials and feedback is frustrating
  •  Noticeable lack of polish and bare-bones presentation
  •  Very few licensed top players available for play

Terrible way to cash-in on Australian open. Shame.

Aaaargh. Just give me Virtua Tennis 3 remastered. That's all the tennis game I need. No one has made a fun simulation tennis game, ever. *beep* you and your itch for realism. 

Maybe Mario Tennis will be fun :( 

 

 

Top spin 4 is better than any virtua tennis game. That is the peak of tennis games.
