Grand Slam Tennis Preview

EA Sports Grand Slam Tennis is releasing soon and is making full use of the Wii Motionplus to accentuate the gameplay. The game features 23 characters based on former and current real-life tennis stars, who collectively won 135 Grand Slam singles titles between them, as well as the courts they played on. Added to that the game is easy to pick up and play.

The Wii Motionplus controller adds a great dimension to the gameplay as it allows for spins and slices. Every motion is picked up and translated in real-time to the screen. Swinging in real time to the action on the screen can be a little tricky to get used to at first, as most older tennis games have time delay in their swing. But after a few minutes it becomes easier and getting beaten by a girl is not an impossibility… (cough, cough). (Eds note: Greg got beaten by a girl?)

In typical EA style, this social game is geared toward family and friends. Up to four players can play together and two players can play with or against each other. Being as easy as it is to start playing, the game really is open to players of all ages and sporting backgrounds. With the dynamics of the movement and motions available with the Wii Motionplus the game gives tennis fans ample room for improvement to compete at higher levels.

EA Sports Grand Slam Tennis is releasing exclusively for the Wii on 12 June and will be selling for an estimated retail price of about R450, giving players time to get excited before they watch Roger Federer add a record breaking 15th Grand Slam title at Wimbledon.
