Be Your Own Miniature McEnroe!
January 21, 2002

This is a very impressive game that does an amazing job of bringing tennis to the gaming table.

Each player is represented by a detailed plastic figure, which is strategically positioned on the tennis court. Hitting the ball is accomplished by holding and aiming your player figure, bending back the flexible arm/racquet, and smack! you let the arm go to flick the ball over the net. Your opponent must then return the ball in the same way, by hitting the ball from the point where it came to rest.

Just as in real tennis, placing your player in the best position to receive the next volley is critical. This is accomplished by positioning a ring, representing your player's area of reach, in the desired area of the court. You can force your opponent 'out of position' by hitting the ball into the fringe, or running, area of his/her ring, forcing them to reposition the ring to accommodate the new location of the ball. Since the ring is not big enough to cover the entire court, this will leave a larger portion of the court exposed for your next return shot.

You score a point by hitting the ball to an area of the court that is not covered by your opponent's ring, and of course, when your opponent hits the ball 'out' or into the net. The game does a great job of conveying the feel and dynamics of a real tennis match.

I am extremely impressed by design of the components. The hairy little tennis balls, which are a bit on the bizarre side, are the right size and weight for the scale and size of the court, and they interact perfectly with the nappy foam-like court surface, which prevents them from rolling excessively. At the same time, the court is semi-transparent, so the 'rings of reach' can be seen and positioned under the court surface without interfering with the game. The player figures are solid with hand-painted detail, and are just flexible enough to allow slight bending of the racquet arm for shot tension.

With just a small amount of practice you'll soon be placing drop shots and nailing the deep corners with regularity. But no shot is ever 100% certain, and just like in real tennis, the low percentage shots are still tough to hit even once you've got the game down, which is exactly as it should be.

Tennis Masters is great indoor fun when you have a hankering to play tennis but don't want to break a sweat. Very highly recommended.

Great Fun!!! Don't miss out on this great game!

This is one of the best 'action' games I have ever played. The rules of play are just as in tennis, with some specialized rules for player positioning. With a little practice you can control the ball quite well and some very tense tennis matches are sure to ensue.

Don't miss out on this game. Everyone I have played it with has wanted a copy.
