After serving up a hugely popular tennis game in the form of the excellent Smash Court Tennis back in 2002, Namco is limbering up for more ball-whacking antics with a much-improved follow-up. Licensed to fill its title chock-full of famous players from the world of tennis, Namco has lined up a dazzling array of top names from the sport. And Ana Kournikova.
The Pro Tournament career-based mode makes a welcome return, and the Arcade option now allows up to four players to battle it out on the courts - anyone for mixed doubles?
Choose to create your own character to head out onto the courts with the customisation feature, or take your pick from such tennis luminaries as Andy Roddick, James Blake, Lleyton Hewitt, Serena Williams and Kim Clijsters.
Rise through the ranks from unseeded nobody to cup-lifting über-player via the Training mode, and perfect those backhand lobs before big tourneys. Famous Grand Slam events such as Wimbledon, the US and French Opens all await budding racquet-to-ball interface types too.
