While soccer, hockey and even golf games sell much more than Tennis games there are still some nice titles out there, one of them is Game, Net & Match.

Many sport games focus on top series, such as England’s Premier League, the NFL, the NHL and so on. Game, Net & Match is different though, it focuses on the whole process from a small time tennis player to the Wimbledon tournament.

If you just choose to watch the graphics of the game you won’t be impressed. Sure the game features all kinds of 3D graphics support that was modern years ago, such as the old trusty 3Dfx, but also never standards like Direct 3D. However the modeling of the characters are not as good as it could have been. But the absolute worst part of the graphics is the people watching the games; they look like they are made of cardboard.

The courts are however very nice and they look pretty most of the time. There are several different kinds o layers that you can choose to play on. Each layers has it’s own characteristics.

You can also meet a lot of players with their own style of play. Some are more aggressive, some defensive. Some are extremely good at serves and some are just plain bad. Meeting the computer isn’t always easy and it definitely take a while before you can beat it.

However this game is as its best in multiplayer against friends. It’s a whole different experience from the single player game and it’s highly recommended.

While you play you have commentators in the background. They aren’t actually that great because you can be really really bad and miss the serve a number of times, and they won’t comment that at all. Also when they comment the comments are pretty lame and unnecessary.

The best part of Game, Net & Match is actually playing the season. Here you start off by defining your player characteristics and then meet a lot of players during a whole season all the way to finals and tournaments.

Overall the game is a great tennis and sports experience and is quite addictive and fun to play. If you can get your hands on it you should. A nice thing is that you don’t have to be a tennis fan to love this game.
