20 Games Like Pete Sampras Tennis()
Virtua Tennis 4 is an action-oriented tennis game which focuses on fast matches instead of being a realistic simulation. The heart of the game is the career mode in which the player creates his own avatar. The goal is simple: reaching the top within four seasons. Here the player has various possibilities to improve his tennis player, e.g. by playing training sessions (arcade mini game like picking up eggs) to improve the statistics, buying new clothes with prize money or playing matches. The menu for this mode is made up like a board game.
Other playing odes are single matches, party mode (playing the mentioned mini games) or arcade (winning as many matches in a row as possible). Here players can choose between 19 licensed athletes (plus at release already retired athletes in the PlayStation 3 version). The standard controls for returning the ball consist of choosing the wished move, e.g. a spin, and the basic direction. When a special bar is filled up, players can unleash an especially powerful hit.

Remember Sensible Soccer? Jon Hare, lead designer of the famous football series, is back with a spiritual successor, called Sociable Soccer.
Hare has kicked off a £300,000 Kickstarter for Sociable Soccer, which, if successful, will lead to a download release on PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One in 2016.
Here, in a wide-reaching, exclusive interview with Eurogamer, Hare reveals why now is the right time to return to the football video game limelight, reveals his personal frustration at how the Sensible games have fared since he sold his company in 1999, and explains how Sociable Soccer will stand out in the face of competition from big hitters FIFA and PES.
A total of 60 games in this one Games-Cartridge with a variety of hockey games, ping-pong, basketball and volleyball games with varying levels of difficulty for amateurs or professionals. Plus a range of arcade games like Breakthrough and Knockout for one or two players.
DiRT 4 is all about embracing danger. It’s about the thrill, exhilaration and adrenaline that is absolutely vital to off-road racing. It’s about loving the feeling of pushing flat out next to a sheer cliff drop, going for the gap that’s too small and seeing how much air you can get. Be Fearless.
From the opening Face-Off it's six on six pro-style hockey at its best. Their are eight teams for you to captain: Los Angeles, New York, Vancouver, Montreal, Edmonton, Minnesota, Toronto and Chicago. You can challenge a friend, or take on a multi-talented computer squad. You can also choose from three difficulty levels - Junior, College and Pro.
Throughout the game, you'll constantly be tested by every intense element of championship hockey, from Penalty and Overtime Scenes to Knockout Smash-Hit Fight Scenes. Speed, strength, quickness and instinct are talents you must possess if you plan to prevail, especially when the anger flares, gloves come off and fists start flying.
It's hard hitting action at its toughest. And you'll soon learn that in this league nothing's ever given to you, and before you can reach your goals - you have to score them. You've gotta master the artful skill of a finesse player and the bone crushing brutality of an enforcer. You'd better be versatile as well, because you must skillfully control your forwards, centers, defensemen and even the goalie, who'll defend the net against unrelenting Power Plays (which will occur if you lose a fight and have your battered carcass banned to the Penalty Box).

Felix The Cat is one of the oldest popular cartoon characters since 1919. Baby Felix was a kids animated television cartoon that ran in 2000 and featured infant character versions of Joe Oriolo's Felix television cartoon from the fifties. School has ended and summer vacation for Felix and his friends is going to be fun as they will be playing tennis. Players can choose to play as either Baby Felix, Kitty, or Tattoo, plus four others can be unlocked by achieving set challenges in-game.
It is a standard tennis game with an angled view so that the opponent's court is smaller than the opposing player's and as the character approaches the net, the camera view slightly follows it. There is a training mode and a progressive Championship mode. On different court surfaces, the ball moves differently. There is a meter for the serve where hitting it at a different point will give it a spin. Two players can also go multiplayer head-to-head against each other.
Actua Tennis features the Actua Sports concept of a fully 3D environment with multiple camera views for both the action and the replays, and motion captured player actions. You can design your player and then put him to the test in a series of tournaments around the world. Drop, lob and smash shots are all on offer, as are singles and doubles matches for up to 4 human players. The former Australian tennis player Pat Cash provides the commentary.
Real tennis rallying, with fierce serves, powerful smashes and fast volleys! This is the real thing!! Three challenging styles of play; Play a singles game against the computer, two players can play singles against each other, or they can play doubles against the computer!
Recreate the excitement and tension of world class tennis in this dramatic
simulation that puts YOU on the centre court - stretching to reach that
service, volleying crisply from the net and trying to out-think and
out-manoeuvre your powerful opponent.
Viewed from the commentary box in realistic 3D, you can either challenge your
computer opponent (or another human) in the Open Championship all the way to
the finals, but don't expect it to be easy! Alternatively, you can sit forward
on the edge of your seat and enjoy a stunning display of control and skill at
the exhibition match.
Suitable for joystick or keyboard control, you will need to master the
subtlety of the drop shot and lob as well as the controlled power of the
forehand drive and volley as part of your repertoire of shots - which should
include a range of recovery strokes!
However, sheer technical compentence is not enough. Strategy and tactics are
vital aspects of tennis and you must develop your ball sense and awareness of
court positioning or pay the price. Play an adventurous attacking game or
stay back and wear down your opponent - all the choices are yours, but don't
let your concentration slip.
Once you have mastered the skills and strategy of MATCH POINT, all that
remains is to take a deep breath and step out onto the Centre court in front
of the waiting crowd...
