Super Tennis (Nintendo SNES, 1991)
|A fast, realistic sim of the popular sport, Super Tennis has options galore, including a variety of singles and doubles play, tournament action (with 20 generic men and women to select from, each of varying strengths), and three types of court surfaces: hard, lawn and clay. The ball bounces differently on each surface, just like in real tennis, and the lobs, slices, smashes and other strokes are realistically portrayed. The graphics and sounds are solid for a first-generation Super NES game, a password saves tournament progress, and the two-player action is super. This is easily the best tennis game for the system.
The game itself features three different modes, Singles mode, in which the player can compete against a human or chosen computer opponent, doubles mode, in which he and a human team-mate can face the CPU, or he can each pair with a CPU opponent, or even one player can pair with a CPU opponent to face two other computer opponents. Finally, Circuit mode, featuring a wide range of tours the player must battle through each tournament to earn himself ranking points and aim to finish number one in the rankings. There are four minor tournaments and four major tournaments, each taking place on a different surface, Hard, Lawn or Clay.
