Options-wise, it’s a game of two courts. The good news is that World Tour has been expanded into a gargantuan Career mode that sees you creating a player (determining everything from appearance to playing style) and improving his skills until he’s ready to compete in the top tournaments. The way you increase stats is the big draw - besides match practice, there’s a series of challenges focused on footwork, ground strokes, volleys and serves. These are brilliant fun and range from running about collecting fruit while dodging giant tennis balls to smacking balls at a moving scoreboard to try and get all your Bingo numbers.
If you have both next gen systems, you must pick this game up on 360. If you want a casual, enjoyable game you can play with your Live friends in between Crackdown and Gears sessions, it's also a must-buy. And if you have friends who'll actually deign to show up at your house in the digital age... again, grab it.
