NZGamer writes: "The typical grunts and groans from your players are more amusing than realistic (which is compounded by their repetitiveness too). Some of the menu items don't seem to be designed for the Wii either, including the in-game menu that lets you change the timing indicator on and off. Instead of being able to use your on-screen hand cursor (like you do for everything else), you have to use the D-Pad as if the game was on a traditional console. All this aside though, for serious tennis fans and those wanting a realistic (and challenging) experience, Virtua Tennis 2009 will be very rewarding if you posses enough patience and skill. For the casual gamers and families out there, we feel that EA Games' Grand Slam Tennis may serve up a better experience. Find out next week when we review it".
