Review 1:
In this well created Tennis game you have the option of playing an
Exhibition Match, Tournament, starting a Career or even just Practising
your serves and shots. You have the choice of a few players, courts,
locations, and you can even control the camera angle shown when playing.
A very well done game for its time.

Review 2:

4D Sports Tennis is a revolutionary tennis game that unfortunately was
both critically and commercially less successful than its over-hyped
cousin 4D Sports Boxing. Based on a more advanced version of polygonal 3D
engine used in 4D Sports Boxing, 4D Sports Tennis features more detailed
and realistic player movements, complete career mode, and enough gameplay
options to satisfy tennis fans for months on end. Although the game's
hallmark is the smooth 3D graphics that make the players' movements very
convincing, 4D Sports Tennis also includes many options that qualify it
as a sport simulation rather than a simple action game of tennis. You can
create a player from scratch with detailed RPG-style statistics, such as
allocating points for his or her maximum speed, acceleration, and
endurance. These statistics will gradually increase with training and
experience on the court. You can also change your player's looks, height,
weight, and handedness-- all of which are reflected appropriately
(increase the weight, for example, and you will see your player become
more chubby). You can play in practice mode, an exhibition game, join a
tournament, or --best of all-- design a complete 5-year career for
yourself by selecting what you would like to do in each month of every
year (e.g. practice, compete in the Italian Open, etc.). On the court,
you will be amazed by the players' life-like movements and realistic ball
physics. Players even lower and sway their knees in anticipation of the
opponent's serve-- much like their real-life counterparts. Mouse-based
interface takes some getting used to, but will prove very intuitive:
mouse buttons control the racket, and moving the mouse controls your
movement. If you dislike playing from the first-person perspective, you
can hit ESC to bring up the Options menu, and change to behind-the-player
camera view. You can even adjust the camera's position and angle to your
liking, as well as save any replays of your favorite shots to watch
later. During the game, you can view each player's profiles, and browse
various statistics that are automatically recorded, such as the number of
aces, backhand winners, % of points won on first serve, and so on. You
also must keep track of your energy level, since exerting too many
volleys and fast balls can eventually make you too tired to run for the
ball. Overall, 4D Sports Tennis remains today one of the best tennis
games ever made. The lack of doubles mode and audience are just about the
only two things that are missing from the game. If you're looking for a
realistic, highly playable tennis game that is very challenging, look no
further.

Review 3:

Unfortunately, this game has been rather unsuccessful. The game was part
of a very small 4D sports collection along with 4D sports: boxing. Still,
I'm not very sure if it was just underrated or if it just didn't have it.
Featuring a very nice 3D engine which could really stand out in its time,
the movements and physics of the players are really revolutionary, which
could actually make this game worth playing. Though, it didn't look that
shining and you could even say the game looks boring. It would have been
nice if the developers would have put that little bit more into the
graphics rather than the engine. But the engine really amazed me if you
keep in mind that this game was released in 1990. Players are actually
moving alot like real tennis players move in real life, which makes me
feel they've put alot of time into making this one realistic. Still, for
the gaming fans, games like Tennis Elbow will make your gaming experience
alot better, but for the real die-hard tennis fans, this is absolutely a
game that you should try and might even catch you playing in its career
mode for quite some time! Review 4: Now this is what I call a tennis
game. This game differs from other tennis games because you play this
game first person! You can play with a mouse or with the keyboard. It
takes quite a while to get grip on how to return a ball, but once you
know how to do that this game was worth the download.
