OverviewOverview

Grand Slam Tennis is a tennis game. You choose one of the 23 real tennis players or create your own. You can play either singles or doubles. Unlike other tennis games, this focuses on hitting the ball with a gesture via the Wii Remote. This extends the Wii Sports tennis mode by adding more accurate shots with the Motion Plus version of the controller, and the ability to direct your player around the court.

You can challenge a historic or current player to a match in an attempt to learn the players special ability. When creating a character you can choose from a variety of clothing, racquet styles, accessories and physical appearance.

Grand Slam Tennis 2 brought this style of play to PlayStation and Xbox, but the motion controls on PlayStation weren’t as good and it didn’t support Xbox Kinect motion camera. For families this makes the original Wii version ideal.
