    I'm just shocked: This game doesn't use the Nunchuck or MotionPlus on the main modes, only on mini-games... NES style gameplay, dudes. That doesn't make any sense!

    My first impression, when I found how the controls are was [​IMG].
    Then, the second time I tried to play the game was [​IMG] .
    Finally my impression of the game is [​IMG]
    I mean, I know Virtua Tennis is an arcade game. I played it in the arcade machines, Dreamcast, PC, etc.
    But, we have a wii. We have a motion plus controller. Why not use it? [​IMG]

    There actually is an extra mode for Motion-controlled gameplay! It looks very similar to this:

    The strange thing is that the motion-controls cannot be used in the main modes, which I find completely unintelligible!

    The thing is, that there should be the option. Then you could decide for yourself if you rather play with WM+, with Nunchuck+WM or Classic!!!

    I read this sucks. Such a shame because this game could have really been the bomb for us Wii users. Now it's just average.

    am i right in thinking that the previous game did have motion plus, so this is a step back? why would anyone buy this?

    Perhaps with Wii´s final stages Sega couldn´t finish the virtua tennis 4 proyect on time and had to publish it faster.

    Well, until I try it , it might as well be better then GST.
    For all I know, even with the simplified controls it might have pretty graphic, lots of options and an engaging gameplay with lots of trophies to win and a decent multi player.
    I need to try it first.
    There is this Japanese Golf game for the DS that doesn't use the touch screen at all. but it's really fun to play.
    I hope this turns out to be awesome !

    Yeah, there's a special mode for MotionPlus gameplay, IIRC it only has an Exhibition and Minigame mode. The main game is much more expansive, but only works with arcade controls (Wiimote sideways).

    Honestly I think it's for the best, but my parents think otherwise. [​IMG]
