Another tennis game in time for Wimbledon mania. It%26rsquo;s easy to bluff your way through the first few tournaments with button-bashing and luck, but sooner or later you%26rsquo;ll need to figure out how to time shots and use your opponent%26rsquo;s style to your advantage. Playing the repetitive minigames and building up your skills can help with this.

Luckily, you can play simple Arcade mode, instead of the in-depth Career mode, meaning you can spend less time fiddling about with experience points and sponsorship deals. The bevy of licensed players means plenty of recognizable faces, though lumpy animation means they all look the same in-game. It%26rsquo;s a decent enough shot at the title, but there are better tennis games already on court.
