    Where is Lost in Blue 3, I wonder?

    I have about 6 people I know who want it ... if it was out in the UK already, I'd have bought it and dumped it myself.

    Oh, and this is a pretty decent tennis game ... for those who have not downloaded the other release, yet.

    Decent game, huge fanservice (in a good way) and supports rumble!

    Looks decent. I've always secretly been a fan of tennis games (though I'd never say that in real life)

    The E version is excellent only the powerups are hard to predict and most of the game is like volleys since the ball bounces a lot or in other words the ball reaches high in the air so stay a little back of the net
    Mostly seems like virtua tennis and mario tennis powerups
    Nights is a rip off but lolz i defeated it on 4 difficulty but still it's powerups are krazy hard to counter... hit the shot early with u on superstar stance to play it better
    Overall i played 2 full games (both with sonic against nights though i lost first one 6-3 and second won 6-3) but i feel it's a great game 8/10

    This is really enjoyable on the Wii, I'll need to give it a go.

    How is this compared to the first DS Prince of Tennis game that came out? Not those retarded RPG versions...the one that was pure tennis matches.

    Crystal Drive is by far better. Though the graphics on Sega Tennis are by far better, the gameplay is bit bland. Crystal Drive features many more modes and is less repetitive. Sega Superstars Tennis is decent at best. I think it's deserving of a 7/10.

    Nice. Been waiting for this, and somehow missed the EU release.

    Tennis? Aw. Too bad it's not Outrun or something.

    This seems like DOA beach volleyball only without the interesting jiggles...

    ..and the beach volleyball. Actually, this doesn't seem like DOA beach volleyball at all.

    I would say this seems like Ninja Gaiden Sigma only without the interesting jiggles, ninjas, demons, huge bosses, sword slashings, blood, et cetera, et cetera.

    You know you're right! What could I have been thinking? Its not at all like both games are about lobbing of a ball over a net with two strength options and minor directional control. They certainly don't share quick win/loss character animations during play and neither of them use a timed serve mechanic nor varied court locations that offer little beyond eye candy. Amazingly dissimilar.

    Omg that was such a lame nerdy response. I'm not going to even bother to point out what's wrong with that statement.

    Played it 2 hours and the game is not worth 40€ at all. Graphics are good, controls are ok but overall the game is far too basic and repetitive.
