How do you aim it? Is it when you swing back, forward, both? I tried to go cross-court and it went down the line almost always.

FINALLY... a tennis game with some freakin' commentary! And GOOD commentary at that. Adds SO much to the experience IMO... like watching a match in the middle of summer. The right stick controls were refreshing and fun as well.

I just may have to pick this up now...

Thanks Flawless, that's a shame since the Wii version was pretty good with motion controls.

Surprisingly, I really liked this demo. The graphics are good, commentary seems solid and the controls are engaging. I have trouble placing the ball where I want it, though.

I can't remember the last time I bought a tennis game, but I might have to pick this up!

Really impressed by the demo. It plays a lot like TS4, in my opinion, and that's a good thing. I think it's a little easier to finish off points, esp at the net, and the same goes for the CPU. The swing is a little weird at first, but I started to get the hang of it. I really like that you can ace and get aced - thought that was missing from TS4 and I got pretty good at the game.

The graphics were really good although not as good in my opinion as the video trailer were (no surprise).

I looked at the game manual and it appears that there are 128-player tournaments, which hopefully speaks for the game's career mode depth, and there is roster sharing - but not sure how many slots exactly there are. I just hope there are a lot, and that the career mode doesn't mean you have to start from scratch as a poor amateur and move your way up (I hate that, and don't have enough time to power through the career).

Really encouraged by this. I might wait til the price goes down a little bit - I can't imagine it will take long considering tennis games don't sell well - but this looks like a great competitor to TS4.

What about the players movement though? Is it me, or is it really fast? It's as if they don't plant their feet and have that "ice-skating" feel? Honestly, I was disappointed by the demo, but I agree if they fix a few things it can be an awesome game. Just didn't seem like the tennis game took much strategy compared to top spin 4. This is go to the net, which takes half a second and then hit an easy shot. I had no chance at the baseline. Not to mention, the AI player went to the net 8 times in 3 games!!! The average on the pro tour is 8 times a whole set, which on average is probably 9-10 games.

I liked the commentary but they sure were going back and forth a lot - I'd really enjoy some minimal commentary for sure. Looks like this will only be turned on for specific matches.
