Tennis has been recognised as a popular gaming genre for many years. Old school games such as Super Tennis proved immensely successful, as did Virtua Tennis when the 3D age began. Since then, there have been numerous endorsed tennis offerings, the latest of which is Mindscape’s Agassi Tennis Generation for PlayStation 2.

Unsurprisingly, the biggest selling point for this game is the ability to play as, or against, Andre Agassi himself. Undoubtedly one of the world’s most popular players, gamers picking up a copy of this tennis sim can play for virtual stardom as the talented American, or fight against him as one of 32 other tennis stars.

Agassi Tennis expectedly plays like most other 3D tennis games, whereby players must aim the ball with the analog stick and hit varying buttons for different types of shot. It’s a skilful game, but the player’s greatest strengths will be dexterity and the ability to outwit your opponents. If you can second-guess them, you’ve got it sussed.

With regards to play modes and options, Agassi Tennis Generation offers some 16 tournaments that span 16 countries and a selection of playing surfaces including grass and clay. The game caters for up to four players, and comes with Quick Match and Arcade modes that play host to both singles and doubles matches.

It’s taken a while, but it’s here, and with a distinct lack of tennis games hitting shop shelves in the run up to Christmas 2003, it’s bound to do well.
