i'm just too angry right now to make reasonable statements :)

i haven't tried out all the modes and online and that stuff which might be alright, i'm just talking about the controls.

 

without wm+ u can hit the ball with no problems and also direct the ball where u want but to get slices and top spins right it's worse compared to wii sports tennis.

 

with wm+ the controls is all over the place nearly no 1v1 tracking, everything with a delay. To get the direction of the ball right is a bitch, slice and top spin work usually alright and r easier to make than without wm+ but ur caracter runs all over the place so that u often stand wrong to the ball and make a wrong and not intended hit or even make a swing to early or no swing at all.

i was expecting much better and more precise controls than this, maybe virtua tennis is beter i dont know, tiger woods 10 definatley is.

 

I think this is the crux of most control problems with the game. People play with no nunchuk and the auto-run puts them in an awkward position. It sounds like people who play with a nunchuk have a better experience, although managing your swing while navigating your position is a more complicated game than some people want to play.

advanced play or a laerning curve is good but when i want to make a backhand and the character often just turns around to make a forehand instead and wise versa, is very annoying..

often it doesnt recognice my swing at all or it already swings when i just begin to make a swing movement with the remote.

Balls.
I play tennis a few times a week, so was looking forward to tennis game with Motion+
I put the initial bad control reviews down to the fact that people were trying to play it like they were playing Wii Sports Tennis.

I bought a copy yesterday (sorry OP...). And I got frustrated right away cause I was really hyped. But after 30 minutes you realise that you can not play it like Wii Sprts Tennis and that it is important to bring the racket back (ie prepare your forehand or backhand). Once you do this, all comes into place.

Learning curve is big on this one which will probably cause more threads such as this but I have a feeling that after many hours on this game, things will just get better and better.

You just have to forget the Tennis on Wii Sports (the controls I mean)...

i have nothing against a learning curve but the game should atleast react as i tell it, especially with wm+

You make a good point. And I did get frustrated when I am clearly "lifting" my shots only to see "slices" on the screen... But I think all that can be improved by playing.

My point is not to convince you but to voice my opinion that though maybe not a must buy game, GST will probably provide a good gaming experience to people (just like the official reviews that go from a 5/10 from Eurogamer to 85%, i think, with IGN). In short, some people (even a lot) will like it.



Elaine: I will never understand people

Jerry: They're the worst.

Have you check if battery is weak?
Calibration?
Options?



Why is everyone so hyped about a freaking tennis game. If you like tennis then do it in real life
For me games are about doing things you can't do in real life.

I can understand some sport games, but never understood why people buy tennis games. I guess it's just me.

oh come on! you played the game for only  half an hour and you make a thread crying wolf and bashing the game... way to give the game a chance... May be you should have played it 3-4 hours and then tell us if you sucked or the game still sucks... 'cause right now, there's no way to tell....

batteries are full, no options for calibrations and when i got too frustrated i calibrated the remote on the table , maybe u have to do that much more often maybe after every point or so not sure.

dude i play tennis since over 10 years i know how to do the basic mechanics.

i know when i make a backhand and the player makes a forehand instead and vise versa that something is wrong or doesnt recognize my swing at all or too early, i dont need 3-4 hours to realize that sorry

i don't think IGN and so many other sites would have given a score above 8 if it was as broken as you say, and the online match shown on IGN makes the game to seem great, there was nothing wrong

i'm sure it's not perfect, but maybe you need to get used to it

i guess people must forget Wii Sports Tennis, this sounds much different and i hope it's not as bad as Slash says

the sure thing is that this is the wrong launch title for WM+
