Critic Reviews for AO Tennis
At its best, AO Tennis is a clumsily controlled simulation of the sport. At its worst, it's underdeveloped, under-featured and entirely broken in certain areas. It could well be improved in the weeks and months ahead via dedicated developer support, but as far as first serves go this one has landed with a thud, well wide of the service box.
Like an ambitious rookie, <i><b>AO Tennis</b></i> appeared promising, with alleged photo realistic looks and authenticity backed by a extensive data built AI. But Big Ant Studios' production can't live up to these expectations, at least for now, despite an interesting timing approach. The lacklustre presentation, the shallow (though large) content and the far from optimized gameplay literally smash the whole experience. Self confidence is a quality, boastfulness or even false advertising, not so much...

I've had a lot of fun with AO Tennis over the last week and definitely plan on continuing to go back. The core mechanics are promising, gameplay is extremely fun but definitely still a little rusty at this point. If you've played the Top Spin or Virtua Tennis franchises, you'll be disappointed with the features on display, but these are things that can be added over time. I have high hopes for what this game could be with a little more time and I sincerely hope that Big Ant continue to add and improve.
