Isnt this like one of the minigames available in the game? I doubt it's a training level.

Well you improve your character through these modes and they help you to get better at shot placement, so training is just as valid a description as minigame! :P

I would say hitting a balloon with a tennis ball requires a rather "Extraordinary" amount of skill.

Aren't the character stats in VT fixed? They used to be..it's more of an arcade game than say, Top Spin. Not a bad thing though, it means that they can properly balance the characters from the start.

And Chewbacaattack, I'm not sure what you're adding to the conversation, but I like your avatar. <3 Ranma.

Should have described my feelings better: The colors, the clothes, the court... It all looks bland, dull, boring...
BTW, ranma is TEH GR3ATN3SS!!!!

Virtua Tennis goodness + AA, Soft Shadows, Self Shadows, HDR... yay! Now if it is smooth... drool! While just a bland training court, other shots have shown nice stadiums and such. But it looks like the fidelity has translated to a large degree from the arcade.

The training games were present in VT1 on DC, but I can't remember what the stat system was like, but in VT2 the training games (like this one) were there to improve your stats, you created a custom player at the start of a career with sod all stats, went through each week of a calendar playing tourneys, but whenever there was a week with no tourney or they were just too high ranking for you to enter yet you could choose a training game to improve a certain stat. There were about 30 tourneys in total but you started about rank 200 and a lot of them required you be in the top 16 or so, so the calendar cycled through 10 times over the course of a career which gave plenty of time to level up a lot.

It looks ok at best... I wanna see some close-ups though.

Naruto is as mainstream as power rangers now, in the sense that it was amazing, but now it's just stupid.

Ergo Proxy FTW.
