TheSixthAxis brings you a hands on report of Virtua Tennis 4 with Move support from Gamescom 2010.
Virtua Tennis 4 + Move = Success & Fun :D
It does look really good. I wonder if it picks up on top spins etc depending of the angle of your wrist? Most probably. I love tennis games and always wished for one that was more advanced than Wii Tennis, where you don't have much control at all.
This looks really strange to me. It seems like the shot takes place before the ball is in place. Is this 1:1 or simply gesture based?
Looks kind of weird to me switching between third and first person views the way it did. Does this game automatically line you up to hit the shot or do you have to move your character around?
Probably you are standing and the camera follow the ball trajectory, I think that is why the camera changes to an "arm"-view.
One clearly didnt read the article.
on Gamescom. What a bullshit gaming with Move. It doesn't work very well so no Move for me (and my friends)
looks a bit awkward but maybe you just have to get used to the camera
Not really impressed to be honest.
Of course you don't, it doesn't have teh virtual petz O-T Looks good but the switching from TP to FP is kind of awkward
Jhonny Bravo is not impressed color me surprised.
VT was my fav. T game..last version was totally meh.. I would have liked to see the person with the control and the on screen gameplay at the same time. Motion + REAL games is a good way to start the use of new controls
looks nice but i prefer 3rd person view for a game like this,1st person view is more suited for boxing games.
I agree hope there is an option to just leave it in 3rd person.
the ps move is full of win
i hope they sort that camera jumping in and out sends you a bit west i imagine, but i guess there will be an option without a dout should be very good. and i have played grand slam and virtua tennis on the wii with motion plus and both are just awfull.
It makes it easier to hit the tennis ball. However, there should be an option for those that are more hardcore and do not like it.
this view is for those with 3d. as for me i think it should help those with move as well ..but i'll stick to the original camera ( they better include it )
VT4 will be fun at best, nothing more. At the end of the day the use of a motion controller will always limit what you can do otherwise on a controller. From the early showing of VT4 with MOVE its obvious the camera needs working on, it looks very awkward and near on impossible to judge the ball coming for the type of shot you want. Should prove fun, but i'll be disappointed if it'll be nothing more than fun.
actually With my experience of VT + wii+ motion plus , i know that motion controls for tennis game CAN work ON THE LONG RUN .your opinion might differ than mine , but did you try the last version with motion plus ?
Is that a red ps move controller I just saw!
Hell yes!!! This is the game I've been waiting for, ever since the virtual Andre Agassi Nike commercial, long time coming :) here is the link: http://www.youtube.com/watc...
