SEGA Superstars Tennis (2008)

2/10

I simply do not understand why producers of tennis games insist on making their controls complicated. In this game, you have to press a combo sequence of buttons to perform a lob or drop shot; the latter being a consistently critical shot in the mini-games. Yet there are two face buttons that aren’t used. Why have an impossible to reliably reproduce combo (which the game usually misinterprets or ignores for no good reason as well) when there are perfectly good face buttons going to waste? Baffling. Outside of this, Sega Superstars Tennis looks great, sounds bright and the mini-games are a good mix of the featured Superstars franchise and tennis but, critically, they are almost immediately absolutely no fun whatsoever because this game is very quickly incredibly difficult. It’s not a surprise that this game is completely worthless (£0.01 on Amazon).
