Tennis World Tour 2 aims high, given the good work done by Big Ant Studios with AO Tennis 2. However despite the new graphics engine, the game does not excel on a visual level but still remains a fun and enjoyable title and for this reason we feel confident for the continuation of the franchise and videogame tennis.
Tennis World Tour 2 improves upon its disastrous predecessor, but cannot completely make us forget its flaws because it’s based on the same creaky structure. It can be fun, but you shouldn’t expect perfection.
A nice surprise that does not make it a must-have, but a title that is still worth a look as long as you are running out of little yellow balls on your consoles.
Tennis World Tour 2 fails to improve the series and remains very far from the heights reached by Top Spin 4.
Tennis World Tour 2 is an undeniable improvement on the original release and it's also arguably a great tennis game for those who can get into it. Aesthetically, it looks good from afar, with fluid animations and speed that honestly gives the feel of a tennis match and features a wide number of game modes, giving you a lot to play through. The problem, however, is that the core game mechanics are inaccessible and unapproachable, offering no settings to reduce the reliance of awfully specific precision-based button pressing which can ruin the core career mode. A mixed bag, this will appeal for fans of tennis, but the opaque nature of the gameplay makes it too hard to recommend.
Tennis World Tour fails to nail the basics and lacks any frills for long term investment. Tennis fans should look elsewhere for their simulation needs.
