Trailer of Virtua Tennis 3

Trailer of Virtua Tennis 3

Sega put online this trailer of Virtua Tennis 3 on the official website, and it seems to be a remixed version of the trailer shown at the E3 floor. The player animation looks great, and hopefully all us should prefer animation before graphics in at least sports games.

considering that this was made to spec of a 2005 PC-harware (lindbergh-board) this looks surprisingly good.

It looks cool graphically, but something about the doubles play reminds me of the videos of Wii Sports Tennis. Maybe its the robot like movement(in doubles) or the silly yellow streaks following the balls.

Grapics and gameplay looks good.

It looks really great graphically, I don't get your comment Manager.

Nice use of self-shadowing.

I think this is a stunning game, but then I never understand Manager's comments, so nothing new there.

I vastly prefer this arcade approach to the create a player random-a-thon that Top Spin succumbed to online. Table Tennis is an excellent showcase of what you can do for balance when you have predefined characters with set attributes.

Looks good, very atmospheric, and you can actually recognize the players!
But what's up with that cartoony "SMASH" light that appears when you hit a ball!
That just looks stupid, I hope that is an option that can be turned off, very annoying!

What an improvement!
If most PS3 titles improve this much between E3 and November (and most devs saying, it will improve) We are in for a good line-up of games. (I know this isn't a PS3 exclusive)

Virtua tennis was always great although the second one was a BIT of a dissapointment so I hope this one goes back to the original's roots.

Looking forward to this.

So what does this tennis game do that others haven't already? It looks great, but if you've played one tennis game, you've played them all. Nothing much has changed since Virtua Tennis 1.

Not quite. I played VT 1 & 2, and I bought(regretidly) Top Spin for the 360 and let me tell you theres a great deal of difference. Most importantly is the fun factor, which VT has top spin beat hands and rackets down.


Also, this looks just as good as TS, maybe better, but in one scene you actually see the players racket disapeer into the ground. Hopefully they have that fixed. But if this game is as fun and as pick up and play as VT 1&2 were/are, than it should be great and a must own.

Where was this? It wasnt something that really stood out to me. On the other hand, the ball trails do need to go. Hopefully that is an option that you can turn off and on, becuase really when do you ever see those trails on baseballs, tennis balls, golf balls, etc? If its a tracer in some ghost recon game, sure.

The ball trails were present in the arcade version I played at a trade show in January. I doubt they're going to be disapearing any time soon.

About the game


What's up?
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX I think it was apparent to people.. even before the system launched.. that the early launch of the Dreamcast was risky. So I can see how EA might want to play hardball to sweeten the deal on said risk (2 Hours ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX They also sold 2K and exited the console business... so maybe it wasn't all the best course of action after all :D (2 Hours ago)
  • Tiz
    Tiz That's what I meant lol. NFL, not NHL. (2 Hours ago)
  • Tinks
    Tinks it's pretty shitty to deny a system because of Visual Concepts though. They hadn't even produced anything yet and EA was a giant even then (2 Hours ago)
  • Tinks
    Tinks EA's license is supposed to be up this year I think. I wish 2K could make an NFL game again. (2 Hours ago)
  • Tinks
    Tinks NFL2K was also the franchise that made it painfully obvious how little Madden was changing year to year. EA had to buy the NFL, and 2K bought the MLB in response I believe. (2 Hours ago)
  • Tiz
    Tiz Even though EA had their games on the Saturn and that flopped hard, the Saturn ran headlong into the famous "$299" mic drop moment. (2 Hours ago)
