GodisaGeek: "Grand Slam Tennis 2 - Novak Djokovic
Seeing as they are generally regarded as the daddies where sports games are concerned, it is unusual that Electronic Arts haven’t really made much of an effort to dip their bread into some tennis-flavoured gravy. They did come up with the decent Motion Plus Grand Slam Tennis for the Wii a few years back, though. With officially licensed, playable legends, cleverly done stylized characters (negating the need to attempt realistic models with the inferior hardware, I am guessing), and surprisingly responsive gameplay, it was a success. It is baffling as to why they left it this long to produce a sequel, or at the very least a version for the other home consoles. But here it is. With a very similar, albeit this time photorealistic picture of classic era John McEnroe on the box, Grand Slam Tennis 2 has arrived. Is it set to join the big boys at tennis gaming’s top table? Or is this sophomore effort the equivalent of a gaggle of drunken middle class women screaming futile encouragement on “Henman Hill”?"
