The Controller Online writes: "Sega and Sumo Digital teamed up to bring us their latest edition of the Sega tennis series: Virtua Tennis 4.This arcade tennis game started back in 1999 and has come a long way in the past eleven years. If you enjoy tennis games, I would hold off from purchasing this game until you have tried the others. Rent this game if you must. For a sports game, I found it very repetitive and sometimes boring. I really enjoyed the other Virtua Tennis games, but this one lacks in creative game-play."
