Virtua Tennis 4 Hitting the Court in May

SEGA has announced that Virtua Tennis 4 is bound for an April release in Europe, with North America set to get the game a couple of weeks later in May, meaning that you'll have two tennis games to choose from this spring, with Top Spin 4 also due on the court soon.

And with Wimbledon gearing up this June, tennis fever will be in the air and fuzzy yellow balls will be flying left, right and on centre court. With its new 'Match Momentum' gauge, you'll also be able to pump up your player's confidence in Virtua Tennis 4, which still doesn't necessarily mean you'll be able to make Andy Murray win the tournament.

Virtua Tennis 4 will be coming to Europe on April 29th and North America on May 10th, 2011, complete with Kinect compatibility.

I hope its better than Virtua Tennis 2009. That was a grind to get up the rankings.

Hope this is more like the DC games. Look forward to trying it with Kinect as the previews have been good.

It would have to have a miracle mode to enable you to make Murray win anything.

How are you suppose to move around the court using Kinect? Just stepping left/right/forward/backward seems a bit lame?

career mode in 2009 was really tough and repetitive

"The things this game needs-

1. A decent drop shot - it's impossible to drop shot computers and the drop shots usually bounce really high which defies the point of a drop shot.

2. A slice shot that actually spins - maybe (x) for a slice shot that spins to the left and (b) to spin to the right

3. A better and faster serve - more variety and faster serving, for example roddick at wimbledon a few weeks ago served at 143 mph on this game his top serve is like 134mph. Also make a greater opportunity to ace on the game as well especially against computers to which it is very hard to do.

4. A greater chance to hit the net and let - again watching the wimbledon final i lost count of the amount of times a point was won by the oponent hitting the net. However currently i am well into the pro tour and i have not once lost the point by hitting it into the net. I know you can lower the shot so you can hit the net on purpose but you can never hit the net otherwise.

5. Not an essential but a challenge system would make the game better - give it more realism with the line judges and umpire sometimes getting a call wrong and giving you the chance to challenge there decision."

I would still take this over Top Spin anyday, but I'd rather go out and play tennis with my old man than sit and play sports video game:-P
