Hot Shots Tennis review

Game on


  • Serving ace after ace
  • Gripping
  • super-fast rallies
  • Seeing that musical note appear


  • Getting out of sync with timing
  • Some of the players look stupid
  • Graphics could use some polish

When Hot Shots Tennis turned up no one really gave it a second serve%26hellip; until orgasmic Monica Seles-esque screams emanating from our gaming cage convinced us otherwise.

Rather than copying Virtua Tennis 3%26rsquo;s game mechanic of priming your shots before clouting the ball as soon as possible, Hot Shots Tennis relies on delicate timing. An intuitive set of icons above your players%26rsquo; heads provides you with instantfeedback as to whether you%26rsquo;re hitting too early, too late or more cleanly than Rafael Nadal.

DescriptionA surprisingly good tennis sim with a lot more to offer than meets the eye. Eat your heart out, Virtua Tennis.
