Looks very nice, but kinda rough around the edges. Hard to describe what I'm trying to say, it's got lots of potential but just seems to be lacking any real polish, and being the sceptical person I am, I'm not expecting mindblowing graphics from this one. But as long as it plays like the first two (though not the horrible PAL conversion of VT1) I'll be happy.

character shadows look fairly similar to the 360 shadows from previous released (PS3 shots seemed to show harder edged shadows in comparison)

Looks ok, still keeping an eye on it. Not really enjoyed a tennis game since VT2 on DC

... Everything has 4 shadows in the scene. This is a sideeffect when having artificial lighting in halls or at nighttime if you have your match outside. Next time you watch the nfl or soccer match you might see this too if the game is played at night or inside an arena.

Yes i know you can get more than one shadow in false lighting, but they are never equal, like the picture above.

It just looks stupid.

And it still would never happen, if you have a light behind you casting a shadow infront of you, and then had a light in front of you casting a shadow behind you, both lights would negate each other.

Looks nice, agre with DeadSaint, VT2 was awsome and still best Tennis game so far.

You're very wrong on that one. Each light source casts a separate shadow. The strength of the shadows are dependent on the intensity and focus of the corresponding light source. Stand in the middle of an area where there are 4 strong lights shining on you and you will have 4 separate shadows.

:O)

Mini-games FTW tbh, hopefully by release they will have added online play though.

Very true, Jollipop, try it yourself in you're in a tennis court at night if you're not convinced.

The graphics look awesome and fun. Very funny minigames, thanks BlimBlim.

It'd actually be cool if they added multiplayer for the mini games!
