This game is one of the most frustrating gaming experience in recent memory. It’s painfully mediocre across the board. The skeleton is all there for an at least fun game, but it just doesn’t seem to come together. Tennis World Tour is a double fault when it comes to a fun tennis game.

I warn you, no implore you, do not buy this game. Publishers don’t deserve to make a cent on a game that has clearly been rushed out to exploit a hole in the market, with no thought to actually making a good, working game. Sorry Tennis fans, the wait for a good game continues.

Despite the game's flaws, Tennis World Tour is an entertaining take on the world of tennis. Once the online play is live next week, and when the doubles mode is added, this will be a very robust option for fans of the sport to take on some quick exhibition matches or on the deep Career Mode on their path to number 1.

With a competent graphic section, a refined gameplay and a career mode that will hook us for hours and hours Tennis World Tour is, without a doubt, the best representative of the world of tennis in this generation

Despite being very improvable in all its aspects, Tennis World Tour is today the best realistic actual tennis game today. That doesn't mean that is better than Top Spin 4 (2011).

The game feels rushed and a bit unfinished At its core, it's got some good mechanics, but there is not enough content on offer between the career and exhibition modes, and the fact that it's hard to find other players online. I think this could be a more polished product with some updates.

Claiming Top Spin's heritage probably put too much pressure on Breakpoint to begin with, even more so considering the studio's obvious resource limitations comparatively. Despite some wise compromises and interesting gameplay concepts, Tennis World Tour fails to develop, or even emulate its model's formula, due to an overall lack of expertise. A thorough imitation nevertheless, yet not sufficiently polished, deep, and authentic to fulfill realistic eSports ambitions.

It goes without saying that Tennis World Tour is matched with Sea of Thieves as one of the worst video games I have played in 2018. The game is incomplete and should not have been released to the public at its current state. Even if the game was complete, the core gameplay feels sluggish and it's not very fun. If you had to choose between Tennis World Tour and AO International Tennis, the latter seems to be the better option for tennis gamers right now. Avoid Tennis World Tour until more patches are released.

Tennis World Tour has been quite ambitious, but the game feels unfinished. The gameplay is clumpsy, its graphics are terrible and the physics are awful. This tennis game aimed high but it failed.

There is no point in paying 60 dollars for a Tennis game when so many better alternatives are already available. One of the worst games of 2018.

Unfortunately, in Tennis World Tour, I was reviewing an incomplete game or a beta version of a game - which I obviously reject - so that Bigben Interactive could exploit Roland Garros to promote and sell the game at this time of year, It looked very promising at first, but it came out in its worst form to represent a new disappointment for tennis fans who crave a tennis game like Top Spin, but they seem to have to wait for more time. However, I do not recommend buying the game in its current state, but let's wait and see how the game will look like in the future.

On paper, Tennis World Tour was supposed to give us a spiritual successor to Top Spin Tennis. Unfortunately what we've ended up with is something that's far from perfect and whilst some tennis fans may still pick it up they should do so knowing that they're in for a frustrating ride. It's likely we'll never know why things ended up as they did here but without some serious post-release patching it's a hard game to recommend.

There isn't really a star cast of tennis players, the gameplay has some extremely weak elements and the overall feeling is one a lack of care. The developers didn't care enough to prep some variables or offer something greater than the basics. That is honestly the biggest crime Tennis World Tour has committed, but even at that, this game needs a whole lot of work.

Tennis World Tour was really ambitous title, but that's that. In fact, this spiritual successor of the Top Spin series fails in almost everything that's important, and it serves the players the experience they certainly didn't ask for.

A well-done mode doesn't make up for the rest of the shoddy work. Couple everything with what may be the absolute worst commentating I've ever heard, and you can't even get too deep into your career mode before you want to smash the controller off of the wall.

Tennis World Tour is a disappointment, plain and simple. It's one thing to not have key features at launch, but the absence of solid gameplay puts the final nail in the coffin. It's not only dull with its weak and monotonous presentation but frustrating as you watch your generic created character not swing at a ball they could easily hit across the court. There is something to some of the RPG elements within the career mode, but my progression or “gear” doesn't feel like it affects my character's ability to perform well. Tennis World Tour had the opportunity to become the video game series players go on to play a professional tennis simulation. Instead, we are given a joyless and empty experience.

Tennis World Tour might have been made with some ambitious goals in mind but unfortunately it doesn't take long to realize that not only the game's promises are not coming true, the game itself has virtually nothing going for it. Due to a botched delayed gameplay that leads to player's actions being horribly lagged and implemented differently, as well as a completely obsolete audiovisual environment and a glaring lack of content, there is no possible way to recommend Tennis World Tour to anyone, whether tennis fan or not.
