Outlaw Tennis review

  • Variations on standard tennis
  • Best tennis camera ever
  • Literally beating another player
  • Contorls could be more intuitive
  • Not a lot of guidance
  • The humor is pretty tasteless

Of course, this being an Outlaw game, you also get 16 over-the-top characters ranging from an ex-con biker to a stripper, each with customizable clothes, the right to literally beat opponents at times, and silly reactions after every important play - which can thankfully be turned off when you get tired of them after five minutes. The commentary, unfortunately, is there to stay, but it’s easier to tolerate. It’s crude, crass, and makes Beavis and Butthead sound like Shakespeare at times, but it’s tolerable.

Gameplay is a bit odd; OT boasts the best camera views of any tennis game we’ve played, but it’s actually really hard until you get the hang of the various shot types. So, for all its "style over substance" look and attitude, Outlaw Tennis might take you a while to finish. Xbox players also get four-player online action via Xbox LIVE.
