It is late Summer, year 2000. For those of you with the right connections to your television, tennis is still available to watch on some far-flung satellite channel. For those of us with a PSX and a need to suffer from tennis finger and tennis thumb, Ubi Soft bring us All Star Tennis 2000, so when Eurosport ends their day’s broadcasting, you can carry on thwacking to your heart’s content.

A tennis simulation in the truest sense, AST 2000 features a handful of players that you will have heard of, and a few more that you won’t. Every player has their own style, strengths and weaknesses, and their motion-captured movements are spot-on. Gameplay features singles, doubles and mixed doubles on a variety of courts, from grass to clay. Get into tour mode and you travel the world in pursuit of the Grand Slam, visiting all the familiar places such as the clay courts of France, and the seemingly always overcast Wimbledon. Play is intuitive, and once familiar with all the shots and their respective buttons, there’s a lot of fun to be had with All Star Tennis 2000.

Please excuse the pun, but tennis has been poorly served as far as the PlayStation is concerned. All Star Tennis 2000 looks set to change all that.
