Virtua Tennis 4 Vita


Virtua Tennis 4 Vita

Virtua Tennis 4 (Sega Professional Tennis: Power Smash 4 in Japan) is the third sequel to Sega's tennis game franchise, Virtua Tennis. It was released on PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, Microsoft Windows, Wii and PlayStation Vita. This is the first main series Virtua Tennis game to not have an arcade release before the console releases. An arcade version was also released, which is powered by the PC-based Sega RingEdge arcade system. There are two versions of the cabinet: an upright 4-player cabinet, and a deluxe 4-player cabinet.[2][3]

The game supports the PlayStation Move controller on the PlayStation 3, the Kinect[4] on the Xbox 360, and the Wii MotionPlus on the Wii. All previously mentioned devices are optional, although the Wii MotionPlus is required for actual motion-controlled gameplay in the Wii version, which is controlled with the Wii Remote held sideways if the accessory is unavailable. Virtua Tennis 4 allows the player to step into the shoes of some of the world's best tennis pros. The game supports stereoscopic 3D on the PlayStation 3. In the motion control mode of all three console versions, the player's character will automatically move sideways in reaction to where the ball approaches, but the player controls how close they want to be to the net by either holding down a particular button (Wii) or adjusting one's physical distance from the television screen (PS3 and Xbox 360). There is a dynamic camera system in place, so when the ball is in the other half of the court, the camera pans out so that one can see one's position.

Two players may now play using the same system, by turning it sideways in the style of Pong,[12] with each participant using a combination of touch control and buttons or analog to play. Augmented reality can be used to bring tennis players featured in the game to life on your system.[13] The users select a player, and have them brought into onto screen, with the background being whatever is facing the second camera on the system.

The game itself was enjoyed by players, critics, and actual tennis players alike (See Reception for more on the reviews). Tennis star Andy Murray stated that he enjoyed the game while playing against a representative from Sega, stating that he found it and entertaining, praised the graphics, and said his in game character was an accurate representation of him.[14]

One type of game I really like to play on the go is a sports game. There are numerous reasons for this, but one of my bug bears with portable gaming is getting stuck somewhere in the game. There is nothing like settling down for a long haul flight with a game only to find yourself stuck and with no idea what to do next. So sports games don't have this problem as they just simulate something with a number of rules which everyone knows. This leads us to a PlayStation Vita launch title, Virtua Tennis 4 (VT4). VT4 is a port of last year's console game with a few additional bonuses, but if you're a tennis fan with a PlayStation Vita, it's the only game in town right now. So it better be good.

Other PlayStation Vita additions include a classic tennis mode where you play with old style clothes and racquets and in black and white. This is something completely different to what we are now accustomed to in the real-world professional tennis circuit. Another addition is the ability to play against each other with one PlayStation Vita console with the touch screen, mini games that use the motion sensor of the PlayStation Vita and a unique VR match mode where you play from the viewpoint of the actual player. This is one of the best additions to the game. Basically via the motion sensor you can follow the ball, even up in the air to ensure your shots are hit well. It takes a little while to get used to it, but it really is a fantastic addition.

Virtua Tennis 4 is a nice addition to the PlayStation Vita range. Without any competition it's the only game in town for tennis fans; however, that is no
