AO International Tennis Critic Reviews

View All (13 total)

The tactics and tactility of a good tennis game remain amongst the purest of gaming experiences, but AO International Tennis is not a good tennis game. Overly complicated and bereft of any emotional resonance, the positive elements, including the detailed character creator, will likely be as swiftly forgotten as the game itself will.

AO International Tennis is like the guy that has the best clothes and racquets but when it comes to playing he does not hit a ball. Even though its foundations are great, the experience is ruined by its awful gameplay and physics with poor graphics.

The gameplay isn't horrible, but it's also not spectacular. The visuals are solid, but not groundbreaking. The customization is stellar, but that's still not enough to save this game from mediocrity.

Despite giving the player an excess of control over shots themselves, the movement in order to set up those shots is almost completely absent. Add to this a list of unrecognisable names and you've got a tennis game that feels pretty darn hollow.
